How to make a Psylocke costume for Halloween (I)

Psylocke3

Who is Psylocke? Only the awesomest mutant ever to be an X-men…

Psylocke originally possessed the power of telepathy, she could read and project thoughts over long distances;[99] control minds; subdue and tap into other’s powers; affect people’s memories;[100] project mental illusions;[101] project psychic waves (psywaves); and generate psi-bolts that could stun,[102] injure,[103] or kill others.[104] She could also project her astral self, and the astral bodies of other people, into the astral plane.[105] She could scan entire towns with her mind,[106] and leaf through the psyches of the inhabitants of a city to learn of their condition[107] or intentions.[108] She could also probe individuals to check up on their status.[109]

So I am going to try and make that costume. Any raised eyebrows?

So you (and I) will need:

  • blue lycra for the gloves and top
  • purple felt for the belt
  • some blue thread for the X on the belt
  • a sword
  • (blue) boots or extra lycra for boot toppers (she doesn’t wear heels so I don’t have to look like a stripper:)
  • red paint for the lightning scar
  • and black leggings (The leotard is cool and all but not for this decade and not for me:)
  • I think I will make a cape as well so add a meter or so of purple felt/wool
