Getting it right?

I’ve been getting a lot of advice on my Tank Girl costume.

Apparently, she is a well-loved character and it’s important I get her right.

Starting with the goggles.

I bought a pair of blue sunglasses to wear with the outfit.

But she wears WWII era aviator goggles.

So I broke down and bought a cheap pair off Wish which I can customize when it arrives.

Secondly, Tejas has informed me that I need to have bazooka boobs which shoot rounds at the enemy.

This I am ignoring.

I see Tank Girl in ripped t-shirts and bikini tops and that’s what I’m going with.

The last thing I need to do is make my chest even bigger, no?

The outfit is shaping up really well.

And in case you haven’t seen the trapper hat that goes with the outfit, here it is:

I’ve been slowly amassing pins to decorate her hat and I’m loving the BOMB ASS BITCH pin (which I destroyed accidentally and had to replace).

Also, of note:

Babes Against Bigots

Socially Awkward

Dismantle Patriarchy


And Punk is not Dead

All in all, the outfit is coming together nicely.

Even the black canvas utility belt I bought looks good with the outfit, so I’m 95% done with the costume.

All that’s left is to get the TANK belt buckle made into a belt with some orange cotton belting (hopefully something my shoe repair man can do).

And voilá. . .

Tank Girl!
