Series: Teen Titans
Variation: 1980’s Era
Worn at: Dragon Con 2012
Motivation: Knowing I was headed off the Dragon Con in a few weeks I thought about who I would want to cosplay the most. Raven popped into my mind because when I was younger Teen Titans was one of my favorite titles to read and I still have all the books. Raven was my favorite of the team due to her back ground, style, and we have the same first name.
Construction: The main dress was made with navy jersey knit lined in slinky black spandex. The cape was made using the same navy jersey and was lined in black liner that was embellished with crystals. The whole cape snaps to the back of the dress’ neck and the raven medallions snap on the to chest of the dress. This lets me get in and out quickly and if anyone stepped on the cape it would not choke me.
Thoughts: I’ll wear and re-wear this costume for a few years. It was super comfy to hang around in and looks good on my body type.
