Rocket Preview by Kukuzilla Rocket Preview by Kukuzilla
Here is a pre-masquerade photo of my Rocket from this weekend at Ad Astra. I am quite pleased with how it turned out even for completely last minute! I decided to do her randomly after seeing the movie and hearing that I looked like her a lot. She is definitely the best character too!

It still needs a few touch-ups and then I will take her out for some epic photos!

You are THE best Rocket cosplayer I have seen on the internet, or anywhere, other than the movie ;__; You managed to get the costume right, and even the boots!!! I'm hoping to attempt to cosplay her in the future, and have one HUGE question-- how on earth did you manage her shoes? I read your earlier post about using a pair of tights, but if you could elaborate, I would be super grateful ;__;

Hey there, thanks so much for the compliments on my Rocket!

About the shoes, I did create a pair of tights more or less, but without the bottom. I basically cut them off at about the ankles and attached elastics so I could slip them over a pair of shoes I already had. I left the front part opened and built boot flaps (where the laces start) and then attached those flaps all the way up with bias tape, sewn open so that they actually moved like flaps. I put interfacing in them aswell to strengthen them, then attached the grommets! Last step was attaching a tongue inside.

I hope this helps! Also, sorry for such a late reply!

No, thank you! This helps a lot! No worries on the late reply, it's fine :) One more quick question, though, I assume the "boot flaps" you were talking about are the black parts on the tights? What did you make them out of? A stiffer material?

Kukuzilla Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yep the black parts! You can use any material really, and just put some interfacing inside. :)

Awesome, thank you SO much!! :) This saves me from searching for the ~perfect~ boots, which has been going on for a while, hahahaa, and is pretty much impossible. I've never gone about making boot covers of any sort, but this helped a lot. Once again, thank you!! I hope I can be as good of a Rocket as you are!

How did you make the funky 'socks'?

I made a pair of tights and then used bias tape to attach the flaps with all the grommets.

yus! my real hair! It's an outgrown mohawk, lol! I wanna shave it again but I can't til I get my photoshoot in for this.

Ahh, they be pretty. And the rest of it, it be pretty too. And you, can't forget you. :3

Ha ha, nice! Looks good this way too, yo. Ack, shaving hair off is scary, so I just got mine cropped close, but I think I may need to get the shaver out again soon myself. ;)

It really doesn't last very long when you shave it, I was keeping it short for a while and I was redoing it like every two weeks. I'm just happy it still looks nice when it's grown out too.

I'll bet you look super cute with short hair. ^.^

:iconwerehermit:
werehermit Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2011
Be kinda awkward it not, then you would have a few problems when trying to grow it out if you get bored of it/ want a change. ;) D'you spike it up, or leave it down usually?

On one side it's mostly short, still long on the right side. Bit of an impulse hairstyle, but I love it.

Also, a more art related question. Been wondering about your shoe collection for cosplays. Do you purchase shoes especially for each new costume, or do you try and reuse shoes that match, and then fancy them up to go along with the outfit?

You're so beautiful in Rocket!
I saw this movie and I loved it:)
I wanted to make a cosplay of Sucker Punch too but I don't know between Blondy and Amber which one I want to do ....
but seriously, I love your taste!
You make a wonderful Rocket and when I saw this movie, I immediately thought of you seeing this character! :)
I love it!
