Why I chose to make this costume:
I love Betsy and X-men in general so this was a great first for me! There are SO many Psylocke versions out there it was really hard to choose one. In the end my friend Alechan (Storm) and I wanted to match and chose Uncanny X-men, mainly because the artwork was gorgeous!
How I made this costume:
I styled the purple wig with a side part and trimmed layers into it. I made up patterns for most of this costume, and the material I used was a heavy 2-way stretch lycra that ended up being a dream to sew. I wanted to use purple and red (sash) instead of the popular blue and pink simply because I like that color combo better, and I had no scar according to the reference.
