BLACK CANARY (DC COMICS)
AMBER LOVE 31-OCT-2014 I absolutely love when I realize I can put together a reasonably believable costume from things in my closet. That’s how I created the BIRDS OF PREY character STARLING in 2013. Yesterday I realized that since I purchased fishnets a couple months ago, I had everything else needed to made another BoP character BLACK CANARY. I like some of the new 52 elements of her outfit; I pretty much hated the Smallville version; and I love the Arrow version from the currently running show. However, what I pulled together was more of the classic comic book look, kind of in the style of Cliff Chiang. I love the animated one as well that has the blue tights under the fishnets but I didn’t have the tights to make that adjustment so, classic it was. The yellow bits were from the style that was used in the era I know Mike Norton was on the book but the bodysuit for that is a (much more comfortable looking) zipped up sleeveless leotard. So this little experiment I did was kind of a mixture of the two.
As I said on Twitter, there were plenty of outtakes because it was me with the time lapse setting and no photographer. My mother looked out to see what I had come up with and even noticed my nipple completely hanging out of the corset – SO THAT HAPPENED TOO.
I had bought the fishnets to occasionally participate in the Twitter and Facebook fun #fishnetfriday. If you’re ever in the mood, find that hashtag. The Facebook page is really friendly and they’re incredibly supportive. There are men who do it too! No one will mock you.
