Now I have to admit, I've not had the chance to see the movie, but I've fallen in love with the style that was used for the fight costumes. Check out Sweet Pea in action.
Butt-kicking flair with the slightly erotic but elegant touch of corsets. Most definitely a mans fantasy in my opinion, however, even I found them to be interesting.
My costume came from the Wholesale Costume Club. You can check out this one and other women's movie costumes if you click here.
I like materials I wear to stay smooth and not bunch. Since these are made to be worn without a defined front or back, they are loose and have elastic around the waist. They also ride up just a bit in the rear. Speaking of the backside, there's a gap between the end of the jacket to the top of the shorts.
This could be because I have a longer torso than most women, so keep that in mind if your long or tall like me.
One side has a long sleeve that is snug but still has room to maneuver. I don't think the hood would fit over big hair. It's just perfect over my straight do, so nothing more than a wig might fit well if you're going to wear it up. The armor piece isn't too big or heavy.
It's not all that noticeable. The straps that go down the front and across your front are adjustable too.
They Velcro to tighten them on your wrist and breathe nicely.
No one likes to shakes hands with sweaty palms after all. They do bunch around my fingers so I might swap those out with the kind I had already.
I had my own black shorts which are short but still longer and more fitted than the ones they sent. I added a black camisole tank under the top to hide certain areas that I don't like showing off; where the ties are in the front and the gap in the back. I like how easy to move it is. Great costume and I can't wait to use it!
