So I originally designed my Femme!Gambit cosplay looking like [URL="http://preciousterrestrials.tumblr.com/post/98940623896"]this[/URL]. But now I'm having second thoughts, so I designed an alternate version. Shown below, in cruddy quality artwork, are my original design and the new one I'm considering (without the trenchcoat).
Left: original design, solid black skirt and fuchsia/black striped tights
Right: new design, black skirt with fuchsia stripes on the sides and solid fuchsia tights
The new design, I think, is a bit closer to [URL="http://oi62.tinypic.com/155rpkl.jpg"]Gambit's original design[/URL], but I'm still not sure which one I like better.
(My actual legs aren't nearly this long or thin. :()
Also, red lipstick or fuchsia lipstick?

Second one for sure. The striped tights/leggings look out of character. Though, I wonder what the second design would look like if the stripes matched his (only wrapping around the outermost thigh). But I can't tell from the artwork, so maybe that is the design!
For lips, I would go with a [U][URL="http://achiccritique.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Amanda+Seyfried+Makeup+Berry+Lipstick+nxfJ7uRH27ol.jpg"]berry/wine stain[/URL][/U] so it doesn't compete with the costume, but rather complements it.

Either way, I hope you find/have a genderbent Rogue :)

I was going for stripes only on the outer thigh, yes, but this is cruddy quality artwork. Thanks for the input!!
Heh, genderbent Rogue, non-genderbent Rogue, non-binary Rogue, not Rogue, walls. I'll flirt with a wall. In French. I don't give a fuck.
