Felicity Smoak Cosplay

You may not be obvious, but I have some deep sci-fi geek/fangirl roots. Conventions I have been to: Star Trek, X-Files, and the mother of all conventions, Comic Con in San Diego. Some of my favorite moments at these conventions are the amazing costumes people create to dress as their favorite characters. Or, rather, embody their favorite characters! Cosplay continues to get better and better - to get the details right, information on what their favorite characters actually wear has become more and more important.

Everyone's favorite IT girl, Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), has been the breakout character from the CW Arrow universe, which is designed by costume designer Maya Mani. Peggy Li Creations jewelry has been so lucky to provide accessories to the TV show for the past few seasons. If you're looking to cosplay Felicity (or Olicity), this would be a great place to start!

HUGE thanks to Arrow Fashion Blog, Worn on TV and Shop Your TV for all their detective work. Visit these websites for up to date fashion spots from each episode of Arrow.

The Glasses:
Felicity breaks stereotypes. She's feminine and caring, yet she is also a business woman, inventor and brilliant computer hacker. Her original frames were identified as Jasmin "Soho" two tone frames, long since sold out. Get the look by searching for rectangle shape frames in two colors.

Here I've found a set of eyeglass frames in similar brown/pink tones from Warby Parker (and they have a ton of similar frames in a dark brown/blue combo):

The Dress:
Felicity at work loves a great body-con dress! Some of the brands she sports are Sandro, Ted Baker and Roland Mouret.

The Shoes:
High heels? No problem! Felicity has great calves and shows them off by wearing heels (with sensible supporting straps, of course). Usually in a neutral like nude. She's gone high-end with Christian Louboutins as well as worn more affordable options like Dolce Vita and Aldo.

The Jewelry:
So thrilled a that dozens of PLC jewelry pieces have been used on Arrow and not just on Felicity. Peggy Li Creations jewelry has been on Thea Queen (Willah Holland) and Susan Williams (Carly Pope) on the show!

Some of my favorites:

Felicity Smoak Triangle Earrings
Handmade Aqua Triangle Earrings and Leaf Drop Necklace (sold out).

Felicity Smoak gemstone earrings
I love this softer look on Felicity, with my Cascade Gemstone Earrings.
