Dressing up as Watchmen's Silk Spectre

The Watchman Secret Wishes Silk Spectre Costume
(Available in the UK and EU here)
Alan Moore's Watchmen is widely regarded as one of the best superhero graphic novels of all time, if not one of the best period. I loved the film adaptation of the book too, and thought they did a great job with the costume designs, making the bright, colorful and often 'silly when you think about it' comic superhero look actually look amazing in live action form. This post is going to be looking at dressing up as Laurie Juspeczyk, a.k.a the second Silk Spectre.

Secret wishes does an awesome Silk Spectre outfit that comes with pretty much everything you need to cosplay as the character, featured above. It comes with the iconic costume romper with garters, the silver belt, plus the boot tops. Next up you need Laurie's hair. If you already have long brown hair, you can get away with your regular look with a bit of straightening. If you don't, don't fret, because on the right is a cute wig designed to look just like her hair in the movie, which saves you the trouble of cutting yourself a fringe.

So there you have it, its very easy to put together a gorgeous looking Silk Spectre costume, and these are all the parts you need right here.
