Superhero Hype Cosplay: Unveiling Jean Grey’s Most Obscure Costume
Note From the Editor: This week, Superhero Hype’s special guest cosplay correspondent, Ashlynne Dae, is wrapping up her two-part column that tackles Jean Grey’s obscure Atlantean costume from X-Factor Annual #4 which debuted during the Atlantis Attacks crossover.
This costume may not be as popular as the Savage Land Rogue outfit, but John Byrne and Walt Simonson’s design has inspired some impressive fan art, including this pinup by Marvel cover artist David Yardin.
Last time, Ashlynne walked us through the surprisingly difficult stages of creating the costume’s silicone pieces. This week, Ashlynne is showing us the last steps in her creation process and officially unveiling her Atlantean Jean Grey costume.
Hello lovely humans! Today, we’re debuting an obscure Jean Grey costume after walking you through the final stages of its creation. I don’t know how many of you out there remember this arc of Jean’s story, but she is abducted by Attuma and taken to Atlantis. She wakes up underwater in this admittedly wacky seashell getup and summarily kicks his butt for bothering her with his super creepy ambitions.
We love to see it.
In part 1 of this column, I covered how I went about making all of my clay sculpted pieces and the negative resin molds which I would use to create my finished silicone pieces. This time I’ll be going over how I finished the costume and brought it to life.
