Amber Love 20-JUNE-2012 This outfit is based on the character TRIPLICATE GIRL from the animated series THE LEGION OF SUPERHEROES which began on the WB/CW network in 2006. The character is sweet and charming and during her character evolution, she goes through a huge defining change. Her ability had been that she could appear as one person or split apart into three. After a devastating loss of one of her identities, she is left with only two and changes to Duo Damsel.
Unfortunately, she was like a C-list characters of massive league of B-listers. That’s actually what makes LoSH a fantastic resource for choosing costumes that no one else is likely to wear. Sometimes that’s part of the decision for a costumer or cosplayer in what to wear to an event. Places like Dragon*Con have specifically scheduled photoshoots with role call style casting for team shoots like Alpha Flight, Avengers, Golden Age JSA, etc. If you venture into the LoSH, you’ll find tons of male, female and shapeshifting characters from which to choose. TRIPLICATE GIRL has the added benefit of having several lovely costume choices in her wardrobe from the comics and from different animations. The mod 60s style miniskirt, belly shirt, bob hair and white boots was something I found appropriately cute for this character without having her gratuitously sexual. It’s a clearly feminine look yet not skanky.
As part of the Summer Scrap Sewing Challenge, TRIPLICATE GIRL was the sixth costume I was able to create using only the fabric from my bins. I’ve had to restock notions like zippers and thread but I have not purchased new fabric or interfacing.
I had the privilege of getting Diana to model for a weekend and she’s seen here as TRIPLICATE GIRL in photos taken by our contributor Ashley.
The costume is for sale on Etsy.
