For my post in the Monster Mash blog tour, I am excited to show you how I made a Jesse Quick costume! For those of you not familiar with Jesse Quick, she is a character in DC Comics, The Flash.

I used the new cosplay suit from Rad Patterns as the base for the costume. The cosplay suit pattern is perfect for so many costumes, and comes in kids, women’s, men’s and in many different bundle options. I plan on using the cosplay suit pattern for at least two more Halloween costumes this year. Until 10/13 you can save 20% off your Rad Patterns purchase and 50% of the sales will go to the ovarian cancer research fund. You can read more info about the sale here.

The cosplay suit pattern is designed to have a drop crotch. Even though I knew that I did not want to have the drop crotch in the final costume, I still cut the pattern as designed. Then, before I added the zipper, I folded the bodice all around the waist area and sewed down two lines of stitching. This gave the look of a jacket and pants, just like Jesse Quick wears. I also modified the cuffs to have thumb holes. Once I had the basic suit made, I was able to start adding in all of the details.

The larger details were added by first making paper pattern pieces. For the details around the armscye, I placed a piece of paper on the suit and traced along the seams to get as close as possible. After making templates for each of the pieces, I cut mirror images of them out of the black and gold fabrics. I had my daughter put on the suit and then used Wonder tape to position each of the fabric pieces on the costume. Next, she carefully took off the costume, so that the pieces remained in place, and then I sewed each piece down using a stretch stitch.

I did not sew down all of the smaller gold lines. For those I used to E600 to glue them down. The thin black lines were added by gluing down some elastic stretch cord. As a perfectionist, it is hard not to get carried away with adding every single detail.

My husband helped our daughter make her mask, the lightening bolt symbol and the gold belt buckle. They used sheets of foam, and paint to make them. I also made some simple fabric covers to go over her boots.

My daughter is so happy with her Jesse Quick costume! One of my other daughters is going to be another Flash character named Zoom for Halloween. I will have more details in another blog post once her Zoom costume is finished.

  1. Great job on the costume. I love that your daughter picked a character that isn’t frilly. I wasn’t that kind of kid but I admire when I see kids who know what they like and go for it!

  2. So fun! I usually make my own costumes based off of my kids’ clothes, but I need to just give in and buy a pattern like this sometime. I’m sure it’d make things a lot easier! Also, I’ve never used wonder tape before. Is it just used to temporarily hold fabric together before you stitch it however you need to?

    You’re an awesome mom! She looks so happy wearing this.
