i love this so much! the armor looks solid! and the makeup! wow! what kind of makeup/bodypaint did you use to get the skin so flawless...and blue??

Thank you!
The body paint is PAX paint, which is really just liquid latex mixed with acrylic paint. So I did mostly white acrylic with a hint of lavendar to get Raven's grey-ish/blue-ish/purple skin tone. I actually toned it down a bit from the original character design for Injustice Raven. They made her this really weird grey color. ><
You need a lot of time and patience to apply and remove PAX, so next time I think I'll stick with a body stocking. Especially since I can't stand to be in the costume for more than 4 hours. ;____;

omg thanks a bundle. it does sound like a lot of work! i need to find a really solid body paint method for one of my dream cosplays. I really admire for going through all of that for the raven though! i think it was well worth it cause the final result is *points to self explanatory awesome looking cosplay* I personally find that it is okay to deviate from the original character design. some things look nice on fictional media/ print but not in real life so you def made a great choice! I thought her colouring for injustice was a bit extreme too. I love the injustice character designs though. I love the regime raven just as much as this version too.

Awesome. I love how you fit the leotard, and how you made the loincloth armor

Thank you! The leotard was probably the scariest part of making it lol @___@
Venlope Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014
Yeah, leotards tend to be like "Oh you're 1 cm bigger/smaller... too bad, i guess i'll have to look horrible on you."
Seriously, too big and you look like a 5 y old at the beach, too small and you look like a hooker
You risked a lot there XD

Right?! Stretchy material is amazing but a nightmare at the same time. I had never sewn anything stretchy or fitted before so there was a lot of "omfg wat am i doooooing".
The first time I cut it out I made it so small that I couldn't even fit it over one leg lmao.

May i ask you how you made those panty-like things? they look solid.
You sewed/glued them to the leotard or they're hanging on your hips?
16Shokushu Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014  Student General Artist
Thanks! :3 They're made from a 4way stretch spandex that's been coated with leather, so I was able to make them pretty form fitting but I didn't want to permanently attach them to my leotard. Thinking about it now, it was probably just because of my lack of sewing experience. I could probably just adjust the leotard and make them a part of it. Although, her bottoms do have a metal ring on the back that connects the two hip pieces to the crotch part so maybe it is better to have it separate. I dunno. I'm rambling. .^. Anyways, the corners of the crotch part didn't stay down very well so I used snaps to secure it to the leotard better but they still kinda poked out, which is another thing that sewing would have fixed.
The armor plates aren't attached to the thong at all, they're held in place by industrial strength velcro that's directly fixed to the stretch pleather sides of the leotard~
