Scarlet Witch is a powerful mutant who gains her powers by absorbing those of the mutants around her. Unlike Rogue she doesn't need to physically touch them, she merely needs to be near them. She is strong and independent (though I'll be it a little nuts at some points) I have always loved Scarlet Witch and when Green Tea Killing (Becky and I) started brain storming costumes we wanted to do for Fan Expo and the idea of Scarlet Witch and Polaris came up I jumped all over it!
The Scarlet Witch costume was made entirely by me. I drafted and constructed the armlets, body suit, cape and crown as well as styling the wig. The boots were and absolutely amazing find I managed to snag on ebay and matched the red of my fabric perfectly. I also did my makeup for this shoot! Becky made her entire Polaris costume, and I have to say I had so so much fun running around together in these!
