…but if I was, it did occur to me that I already have knee-high black leather boots. They may not be proper Stompy Boots, but they’d certainly do in a pinch. And I did find the necessary color lipstick, for slightly less than the top dollar I was willing to pay for it. By the company that’s making the Wonder Woman makeup line, no less, although the appropriate lipstick is not from that line.
I wonder if I could do this on a reasonable budget. Well, no. A mask, if I did one properly (or rather, had one done for me) would shoot it out of ‘reasonable budget’ range immediately. But the rest of it, I probably could. Although I’ve gone back to the idea of making, not buying, a jersey, because I’d want one properly fitted. The jeans, whatever, but the shirt might need making. Then again, if you don’t account for time, the materials for a jersey probably wouldn’t run anywhere near the cost of a pre-made one. And I can always use a dime store Lone Ranger style mask. It’s what Chance had in the early days. Back when her costume was made of denim, not leather. :) (I know these things. I’m the writer. :))
I should probably make a decision on this by Friday, since if I’m going to do the fundraiser run I should give myself some time to, y’know. Raise funds. :)(x-posted from the essential kit)
