TRDL 2013 Series No. 47 - Wasp [TRDL Redesign]

This is a redesign of Wasp, from Marvel. I've only ever liked two of her costumes over the years, and there have been many, many iterations. I liked the original 'stinger-head' version, and the most recent black and gold one. Anyway, keeping with the character's fashion background and vivaciousness, I incorporated elements of both flirty good-grrl fashion (a gradient opaque to translucent bodice and pleated skirt) with more edgy avant garde couture (latex at neck/shoulders, arms and leggings) and left her short cropped hair and fresh smile visible. A tiny wasp logo is now stamped on the centerpiece of the shoulder sheathing.
