If you are wanting an idea for a unique female superhero costume a great idea is to make your own Starlight costume. A Starlight costume is based on the character portrayed by Erin Moriarty in Amazon’s The Boys.
Starlight Costume – The Boys
The great thing about a Starlight costume is that you can make your own DIY version of the outfit or you can buy a readymade version. Below we will look at both options starting with the clothing you will need to make your own homemade DIY Starlight costume from The Boys.
|The first article of clothing you will need for your Starlight fancy dress is a white dress.
This should be a dress which is quite short with the lower half flaring out a little. A pleated dress would work well.
|As a superhero you will not be surprised that a cape will be needed for your Starlight fancy dress.
This should ideally be a white cape although a gold cape could also work although a gold skirt would not be screen accurate.
|You will need a pair of knee high boots for your Starlight costume.
These should be either white or gold and have a high heel. The boots worn by Erin Moriarty in the show have a wedge heel.
|You will need a specific style of belt for your Starlight fancy dress.
Most importantly the belt that you choose should be gold. You can use a cosplay specific type of belt. Perhaps a Batman utility belt would work well for this fancy dress.
|You will need a pair of long gold gloves when making your Starlight costume.
In the show this character does not wear gloves but gold cuffs. This could be replicated by gutting the hands of a pair of long gloves.
|You will need a headband for your Starlight costume.
This should be a solid white headband which you will wear in the obvious fashion.
Starlight Gold Stars
|On the front of the dress that this character wears there is three gold stars.
These can easily be bought and fixed to the front of the dress you will be wearing. You could also add small stars to the cape you will be wearing.
Starlight Complete Costume
|As we mentioned at the start of this guide there is the option of buying a readymade Starlight costume.
There are several available which are highly accurate to what is worn by Erin Moriarty in The Boys.
