Teen Titans: The Alien Girl from Tamaran by MangoSirene Teen Titans: The Alien Girl from Tamaran by MangoSirene
I just got Starfire photos back from Carroll~! We took these at Dragon*Con, where it was my first time wearing this costume. There are a few things I'd like to redo before wearing it again (such as the wig - the humidity in Atlanta made the bangs deflate a little), but overall I had such an incredible time being Starfire! She was a childhood hero of mine, so being able to bring her to life was a really, really great experience. I can't wait until we do our full Teen Titans group! :heart:

If you're curious about how I made this costume, check out my Cosplay Work Logs on YouTube! :D

EDIT 10/08/13: Oh wow, thank you all so much for such a positive response to this cosplay! It's really exciting! Just a few things I wanted to mention so I don't have to repeat myself a hundred times:
1. As I said already, the humidity/rain during the day caused the gravity-defying bangs to deflate, hence why the wig doesn't look 100% accurate. I'll be restyling them before I wear the costume again!
2. The purple fabric is spandex milliskin. The silver fabric is 4-way stretch spandex.
3. For the orange skin, I used Mehron Liquid Body Paint. It's not a spray tan! ;P
4. Yes, my abs are real. There's also more to the photo than just my abs, so if we could all move along...

If you have any other questions about the costume, please refer to the work log videos linked to above!

Amazing cosplay! You make a fantastic Starfire! I just have one question, where'd you get your wig? I'm having a super hard time finding a straight dark red wig with bangs.

It's from EpicCosplay! :D

I'm not sure whether it was intentional or not, but how did you achieve the long bump on her boots? It looks like a seam but it ends at the toes, so I'm not sure quite what it is. 
MangoSirene Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I'm not sure what you mean by a "long bump"? The boot covers have front and back seams which are simple zig-zag stitched; is that perhaps what you're looking at?
AstroAnemone Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

I wasn't sure how to describe it but it looked like you had a long tube in your boot that ended in a loop near the toes ;p Kind of like this:

How did you get your boot covers to stay up? I have thigh high boot covers for Ms Marvel and I'm stumped
Vegnas Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

nanahara7 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2013
looking PERFECT as Starfire. Just the right tint of orange to the skin, as well as brilliantly made cosplay
HotaruKagurazaka Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
What are the green things? Some sort of plastic, or perhaps something else? It plagues me so.
MangoSirene Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Resin! You can find a basic tutorial of the process here. :D

The costume looks so great!! And the way the gems seemingly glow really makes them stand out. Great job on this costume!
HaughnSolo Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013
Absolutely marvelous!
Viper424 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
O_O!!  You make a perfect Starfire!  The costume is perfect.  I don't usually curse in a public forum but...damn girl.  You have the build for Starfire and I am not just talking about your abs.  You have that mix of delicate and sturdy features that she has.
Cheers!! :clap:

Amazing costume! I want to see photos where an effort has been made to capture starfire in more classically emotive poses for the character though!
bolorny Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
Very nice costume :clap:
And sorry if you are bored with such comments, but i have to say you have amazing sexy abs :iconloveloveplz:

Druce-White-Owl Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013  Professional Writer
The level of detail you put into this is amazing, yeah sure the wig looks a little flat like you said, but the costume? The costume is INCREDIBLE.  I didn't even think that costume could translate from animation to live action, it seems so flat and bland, but you did a great job and you successfully maintained the color palette from the show too, WOW!
MangoSirene Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
 Thank you so, so much for the compliments, I really appreciate it! :tighthug: Matching the colors was a lot of fun, and I definitely prefer this design of Starfire's as opposed to some of her other versions. :'D

I don't know why, but everytime I see your abs I just want to bounce quarters of 'em cause they are so tight!  Love this cosplay!
TeddyLoved Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013  Student General Artist
IGualita a Starfire :)
Dante8411 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013
It seems odd that you want to move on from your abs. I mean, you must have worked intensively to get them, probably even moreso than on assembling this beautiful cosplay. Is it just a point of relevance, or have you gotten some creepy comments in the past?
MangoSirene Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I work out because I enjoy it and I want to live a healthy, fit lifestyle. It's nice for cosplay, of course, but my body has nothing to do with why I chose to cosplay Starfire or why I spent so much time and money creating this costume, and I feel like all of that is being dismissed in favor of commenting on my appearance. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the compliments, but some of these comments are getting rather distasteful. :/
Dante8411 Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013
Okay, I can see how you'd grow tired of them when the exercise isn't for cosplaying. Distasteful was kind of a given, because that's what happens to...all females on the internet, actually.
Well, you did a really good job on the cosplay.  The liquid body paint was really going the extra mile. Are the green gems in the gloves and collar plastic air bubbles? How does one go about making those?
MangoSirene Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
The gems were cast from resin, so they're solid! You can see the process of making them in my work logs, which are linked to in the description. :)
Dante8411 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2013
Oh, cool.
Man, you put a ton of effort into these things. I wish I had your work ethic.
