Halloween, Part VIII: Supergirl

This costume was a late edition to the costume parade, and it turned out to be one of my favorites.  It started when I found a royal blue onesie, and it grew from there.

The basic construction is pretty simple.  It's a circle skirt attached to a blue onesie.  I created the insignia by printing it out from the interwebs, and then tracing it to felt.  It's not perfect, and I didn't quite get it centered evenly.  The "boots" are leg warmers crafted from girl's socks.  I had every intention of making a little cape to snap onto the shoulders of the onesie, but I ran out of steam.
