Costumes made/modeled by Yaya between 1999 - now.

Psylocke - The Uncanny X Men

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.

Thoughts on this costume:

The X-men group we put together at Starfest was a blast! I love all my fellow mutants, they all looked so awesome! The cast:
Psylocke (Uncanny X-men) - me
Storm (Uncanny X-men) - Alechan
Professor Xavier - Plonch
Phoenix - Tersa
Gambit (Xtreme X-men) - Brian
