Mission successful (sort of)! The only leg flesh I have showing is some thigh, but that’s covered in shiny skin-colored tights, so all is well and covered in Halloween costume land and I didn’t freeze.
For the rest of the costume, I pretty much cut up a spare black tank top to create the black linings for the yellow shirt and then cut apart a black leotard and glued that on as well. There are black full-arm length gloves you can’t see here I made out of black leggings and for the boots I cheated and just wore regular knee-highs with black leg warmers to make them look like thigh-highs. Complete with a pair of black shorts and thick belt and you have the Silk Spectre!
Hope you all had a great and safe Halloween! I’m dying to know what you dressed up as :D

Lucky Tiffany has figured out what she wants to be for Halloween but I’m still in the throes of a girl’s worst Halloween costume nightmare - to skank or not to skank?
The most solid idea I’ve come up with thus far is to join a bunch of my friends who are all dressing up as characters from Watchmen (a 1986 superhero comic that’s coming to the big screen in 2009) and go as the Silk Spectre - aka Femme Fatale and Skanky Supergal of the year.
I typically avoid being the slutty nurse or playboy bunny that every other girl in the world seems to want to be for Halloween (because it’s the one time of the year you can look like a hoe and get away with it yadda yadda). So as much as I love the Silk Spectre I also can’t help but think her look is a bit too far on the slutty side for me.
I think the comic book version (click more to see the picture) of the Silk Spectre might be a bit less spandex and butt-cheek exposure happy, but then again see-through yellow dresses are probably more revealing (and more difficult to find) than sheer yellow shirts. Black pumps are also less slutty than over-the-knee black boots, but then again the latter covers up more skin and I’m going to need all the protection against cold weather I can get.
What to do?!?! Should I try to pull this off? If so, which version should I do and how skankerific is too much?? More »
