Hilary as Silk Spectre

Silk Spectre


Laurie Juspeczyk

Cosplayer: Hilary
I decided to make myself a Watchmen costume before everyone and their mom makes one after the movie comes out. I went with the comic version of Laurie because I haven't seen the movie yet and am not so sure if I want to invest the time in making a latex catsuit yet.

This is a very simple costume, but I'm quite happy with it. I did all the seams in the yellow tunic in french seams, and was very tidy with the hemming and finishing. The undersuit is very well made too, so much so I may wear it as a swimming suit. The belt is leather, secured with a paper fastener.

The hair is not terribly accurate to the comic, but I didn't really feel like giving myself 80's hair, so I went more along the lines of the film.
