Become a DC 'Bombshell' with these comic-accurate cosplay patterns

With the biggest comic conventions of the season still ahead, cosplayers across the globe are working on the looks they'll debut for thousands of fellow fans. And if any cosplayers are stuck when it comes to a exactly which hero they should become, the folks at Simplicity might just have you covered. The noted pattern makers have made it a little easier for cosplay creators to construct their own impressive, superhero-inspired ensemble.

Based on DC's digital-first "DC Comics Bombshells" comics series written by Marguerite Bennett and featuring art by Marguerite Sauvage, Laura Braga and Mirka Andolfo, the line allows fans to create retro, pinup-style costumes for Wonder Woman, Batgirl and Supergirl. It's worth noting that these are patterns and not fully completed pieces of clothing, which means that sewing skills and general craftsmanship are the superpowers you'll need to bring these outfits to their full potential. Each is available in sizes 6–22. Flying abilities not included.
