Character: Black Queen Jean Grey
Series: Marvel Comics/X-Men
Worn at: Ad Astra 2011
This year I was asked to participate in Beefcake/Cheesecake, a charity event run by Ad Astra benefiting Casey House. The theme was “Bad Girls make History”. Upon seeing the list of suggestions (and seeing Emma Frost already chosen by the lovely Katherine Curtis), I decided to try my hand at Black Queen. I’d had interest in doing this costume for a while, so this was a perfect excuse for me. The corset was bought, the collar and boots I already had, and the whip I borrowed from a friend. The wig was a huge learning experience for me. I made the PVC panties, wet look spandex gloves, the cape and the two roses. This costume is actually one of my favourites, despite being very naked, and I only wish it took up less space in my suitcase. I never did a proper photoshoot with this costume, but I do have a couple photos from the event.
