But that's sort of the great thing about everyday cosplay. I can draw inspiration from my favorite superheroes to create an outfit that's more flattering for more not so subtle lady parts. Because let's be real, have you seen Deadpool's ass in that spandex? There's no way I could ever live up to that. Plus, I can't very well waltz into my kid's daycare with Deadpool's cache of weapons.
No, if I want to pull of a Merc with the Mouth inspired outfit, it has to be slightly more flattering and slightly more subtle.
In the movie, Deadpool says that he wears red so that his enemies can't see him bleed. (Any lady already knows that brown, black, red, and maroon, are just super great colors to accomplish this function.) But Deadpool accomplishes this with a mostly red outfit, with just some black accents. I, however, went the other way.
I wore red lipstick because of the red mask and a pretty heavy black eyeliner. I also had a black necklace that I threw on, but I could not stop thinking about how much I wished I had little black gun earrings to wear with this outfit all day. Like these badass ones I found on etsy.
