A word from Kat, the 'Starfire & Red Hood' costume creator:
I, myself, am wearing my own handmade Starfire costume, while my boyfriend, Angel, is sporting his handmade Red Hood costume. Starfire and Red Hood are DC comic characters from the Batman Universe. Starfire's costume was made using only needle and thread, super glue, fabric bought from JoAnn's, card stock, fake gems bought online, and a bra and previously owned boots. I had no previous training or knowledge on how to make clothes, let alone a costume. I basically just guessed and did a lot of trial and error. I simply cut out fabric and sewed or glued it together until it resembled the picture from the comic book. The wig was purchased at a local beauty supply store. The Red Hood costume was made using EVA foam, spray paint, a hot knife, an oven and old sunglasses. It basically took a lot of cutting and molding in the oven. Once the form was in place, you would put the foam into the oven to maintain its shape. The old sunglasses were broken to form the eyeholes and a little paint was added here and there and voila!
