I made this costume for my brother’s girlfriend. She wanted to be Storm from the animated X-men cartoon from the 90’s (which is why the outfit is white). I had no idea how to make a body suit like that so I googled body suits and cat suits and ultimately had to follow tutorials on how to make men’s superhero bodysuits and make some adjustments for a woman, but in all it worked out.
White spandex / dance / swim material, gold trim, felt, elastic, cardboard (inside the shoulder pads).
