Homemade Rogue from the Xmen Costume

Homemade Rogue from the Xmen Costume

I created this Rogue from the Xmen Costume almost entirely from scratch.

I purchased a sewing machine just for the occasion and the 2 colors of spandex at a local fabric store in Boston. I made the body suit, added a zipper at the back so that I could get in and out of the suit, made the gloves, and also made the covers over my boots. I used a pair of boots I owned to get the correct shape I was looking for. From there, I took measurements and made sewing adjustments as required to get the boot covers to look like actual boots and not just boot covers. I added some thick felt to the top to acquire the accurate shape of the boot and attached the ties around the knee last.

I purchased an imitation suede jacket at a local used clothing store and used fabric dye to color it hunter green as Rogue wears it in the cartoon series. I bought a thick felt to create the patches and belt buckle and used fabric glue and hand stitching to attach them.

I made sure the costume was as accurate as possible so the patches, black lines, and collar match the cartoon figure exactly. I found the thick brown belt at a local store and used the felt and glue to create the buckle. I used ribbon for the black lines on the chest, the wraps around the knees, and the head band. I crimped my hair and used white hair spray to make my hair match Rogue’s.

I think it came out pretty accurate, and I couldn’t believe how well I sewed the costume together considering I’ve never sewed any clothing from scratch before.

I've been trying to find one since I am no good at sewing myself at all! any tips for putting one together?? OR any chance I could buy this off you? I know you're probably SUPER proud of it and want to hold onto it, but she's my favorite character and really want to be her for Comic-con this year! let me know, thanks.

This costume is amazing! I say try to make one yourself and see how it goes. It's so worth it!

I so wanted to be rogue but couldn't find the costume! I'm so not good with a sewing machine. How did you do it without ever sewing?

What pattern did you use to sew the costume, or did you just create your own?

Boot covers!

Hi!!! How did you make the boot-covers? They even appear to cover the heel! What kind of boots do you have underneath? Thanks so much!
