Zatanna Zatara from DC Comics
This was another costume I made for a Costume SuperCenter tutorial! They asked me if I wanted to make the main girls from GLOW so I started watching the show right away to learn more about them. Liberty Belle was actually my least favorite character, but I did like the way her costume looked!
I searched for the perfect fabric for weeks. I knew I wanted a faux velvet, but it also needed to sparkle. When I was finally about to give up and buy something else, I spotted the perfect fabric on the incoming shipment rack at Joann Fabrics. I quickly asked if I could take it off and they said it was no problem!
For the leotard, I tried a new pattern I hadn't used before and it was very short! I ended up having to add extra material to the crotch, but even then, the leotard part of the costume sits so low, you can't wear a bra with it. This also caused it to be much more high-cut than I was intending, but it looks good, and that's a good thing! The leotard is lined with nude swimsuit lining and has a short zipper in the back.
The vest was a monster. Not because of the shape or materials, but because of all the stars. I originally planned to glue them all on, but, joke's on me, they wouldn't stick. Because of this I had to individually top-stitch every single star onto this costume, and man, did that take forever.
Overall, I'm pleased with the outcome of this costume, even though it caused me some trouble and more work than I had intended. If you'd like to know more about how I made it, check out the tutorial!!
