Shadowcat & Lockheed ;)
I am so delighted to share these photos with you of my new Kitty costume, her classic blue outfit! I was super excited to do this version of her costume. :aww:
Taken at Philadelphia Wizard World 2013.

A very special thank you to Tonya for my costume [link]! :huggle:
And, to my :heart::iconakaius: for all of his help. :love:

Spot-on portrayal of the classic 80’s retro Shadowcat character and look! I always loved that version of her the best, and to me it will always be the quintessential Kitty Pryde. Out of all the cosplayers I’ve seen portray her so far, you’re the best hands down! Especially since you actually resemble Kitty very much, which adds to the convincingness of these photos. Great work! :D

Another really sweet and truly awesome compliment! TLadyJessica, thank you! It really means a lot to me. Kitty is my absolute favorite character and I'm glad to hear I'm doing her justice! It might sound funny, but when I put on her costumes, it doesn't even feel like I'm putting on a costume. It just feels right! Thanks again! You're too great! :)

Actually, that doesn't sound funny at all, I know what you mean exactly! When I wore my Artemisia (from 300) costume for my cosplay of her, it felt totally natural for me to be wearing it and portraying myself in that way, almost like there was a bit of that character to me. Since she was based on a historical personage, who knows? Maybe I was her in one of my past lives! But whatever the reason for it, it lent much to the air and authenticity of my look and bearing on that occasion. And it is a look I'd totally sport (and have) about town even. So yeah, sometimes with certain looks and styles, it is less like a costume and more like putting on yet another garment from one's casual attire. Feel free to check out my photos of me as Artemisia here on DeviantArt whenever you wish! I'm certain you'll like them lots. :)

You make a very nice Kitty Pryde.  In fact, if Ellen Page weren't playing her, you'd get my vote!  You actually resemble to comic Kitty pretty well. :)

Well done.  It's sort of hard to pick which costume or pose I like best.  But I think the blue Shadowcat works best on Kitty. 

My favorite times for her are in the Alan Davis Excalibur days.  Who do you think does the best rendition of Kitty?

Thanks very much! :thanks: I agree with you there, it is difficult to choose! For me, it's between her classic blue costume and her regular black and yellow uniform. :)

I love her days in Excalibur too. Alan Davis' are classic, but I do like Warren Ellis' later issues as well. I think my favorite would have to be Chris Claremont, whether it's her first appearance and days in the X-Men or his run of Wolverine and Kitty Pryde. Can't go wrong with Astonishing either! Also, I'm really big fan of Uncanny (issues #522 on) when she came back after the bullet. The artwork in those is fantastic! And what they're doing with her right now in the comics is really great as well. :lol:

Best Shadowcat/Kitty Pryde on DA. Closest to the original comic content, and your looks are what seal the deal. She would really look like you. Great job!
