Starfire is a force to be reckoned with and this photo definately made me feel that way. Though I am warming up to the new 52 concept and slowly making me like the new version of her I am still totally in love with her from the originals and the cartoon. She's a strong woman, a feirce warrior and passionate in all she does. I hope to embody that strength each time I wear the costume. It's always awesome when little kids come up knowing who are you and the look on little girls faces when they see "Princess Starfire" walking through the convention. Its the best part of the costume in my opinion.
The costume is made from four way stretch hologram lyrca. The gem are made from air dry foam and painted with acrylic paint, then a layer of gloss. I used wolfe bodypaint to tint myself for the day, first time I did it and I will never cosplay Starfire without it ever again.
