Why I Chose This Costume:
Those who know me know that I love pinup style! So obviously, I am in love with the entire DC Bombshell series. The only struggle was choosing which character to cosplay, since they all have such great designs! I eventually decided on making a Bombshell Cheetah cosplay since Cheetah has always been one of my favorite super villains (and wonder woman one of my favorite heroes.) Cheetah, most specifically the Barbra Ann Minerva version, is super smart and sexy. What’s not to love? When I was little I always dreamed of being an explored, and even though my dreams have since changed, getting to play dress up as one for a day was so fun!
How I Made This Costume:
This Bombshell Cheetah cosplay was handmade and all the pieces drafted by me, with the accessories being bought off of Amazon.
Shirt – This shirt took a couple of tries, as I don’t normally draft my own patterns. I was really pleased with the final result, however. It is made out of a thick woven fabric. The shirt also has cheetah print fabric sewn in around the chest to give the shirt the illusion of having a cheetah bra underneath
Skirt – The skirt was a lot easier to make than the shirt as I have a lot of experience with skirts. It is a very simple A-line skirt with pockets sewn in. The pockets were made the exact size of my phone, which made the costume a lot more functional.
Gloves – The gloves were made out of pleather using a pattern that I already had made for my tiny hands!
Necklace – I found the perfect beads from Jo-anne’s and used a hemp cord.
Wig – The wig was a straight red wig from Ebay that I had bought ages ago and repurposed for this cosplay! It was curled and cut by me.
Helmet, goggles, socks, shoes – All from Amazon
I hope you guys love my Bombshell Cheetah Cosplay! Meow!
