I've already got a tan leather jacket with an X patch I sewed on myself, red ombre hair, and a few pieces of clothing I imagine Rogue would wear when she's not in her spandex. The only thing I'm missing besides the raspy southern drawl? A nice pair of leather gloves. I'd like driving gloves, preferably in black or tan, but other colors could work nicely too. Now here's the problem though: I have itty bitty hands. I've searched high and low for extra small driving gloves but no dice, sugar. My hands are smaller than the average size small glove (my measurement is 6 inches.) Thanks, ladies."
Um - can I just say, so totally awesome? I wish I had the cojones to dress up like my favorite mutant heroine someplace other than Comic-Con. If you hadn't already put most of your outfit together, this would have been a great one for our new I'd Rather Be feature, but since it sounds like you're already well on your way to a truly Roguish look, I'll settle for helping you complete the picture.
