Supergirl! - Conventionless Convention Sketch #1

Supergirl © DC Comics

Here is the first one out the gate. This Supergirl belongs to Royce. Royce has been commissioning each of the Supergirl costumes from me for a little while now. It won't be long before we hit the "headband" Supergirl. Oy. :)

This costume is from a time when fans were designing costumes for Supergirl and sending them in to DC Comics. Some were used as is and some were combined to create a whole new costume. Some didn't last long. This particular costume was only used three times. If you really want the lowdown on the history of Supergirl's various costumes, check out this write up at the Girl-Wonder site.

Thanks for the commission Royce. I hope this Kara is a welcome addition to the others. :)

And just an FYI, there are still a few spots left on the list. Check out yesterday's post for details.

This Supergirl pin-up was done in ink on an 11" x 17" sheet of bristol board.

This is Post #1293

I like it! May need to look it up to see how they did her colors.

It was a weird costume but as usual, you found a pose to show it in its best light! Thanks so much Gene!
