Series: Guardians of the Galaxy
Character: Male! Gamora (Genderbend)
Debuted At: ALA 15
Details: This costume is sponsored by Costume Supercenter!
Costume Supercenter was kind enough to sponsor our cosplay endeavors, and offered to help us build some Guardians of the Galaxy costumes.
We took on the offer not only because we love these characters, but to help show beginners interested in cosplay how easy it can be regardless of sewing/prop skills! There are many ways to cosplay, and you don't always have to be a whiz at patterns and fabric. Making cosplays from altered clothes or altered Halloween costumes is still viable, and often times can look just as great!
Luckily, Gamora's costume was nearly perfect already! We did very little to improve the costume.
It came with the jumpsuit, neck collar, boot covers, belts and gloves!
The only part I found needed some more love was all the metal bits on Gamora's collar and her belt.
Using hot glue, I pooled the glue over each metal bit to make it raised. I also used it to made raised details for the belt. Afterward I painted the glue silver! Done!
The sword a toy one from the store painted silver, and Sylar is wearing Mehron Greaspaint.
We attached some fuschia clip ins to his hair and he was done!
Below you can see the before and after alterations to bring this costume to cosplay standards! Easy and no sewing required!
