Bettie Page as the Rocketeer by Riddle1 Bettie Page as the Rocketeer by Riddle1

Costume : Me Http://www.acebook.com/riddlesmessywardrobe & SMP Designs
Based off the drawing by Darwyn Cooke

Most importantly... Dave Stevens.
Who created the Rocketeer.

I know some of you thought this might be my original take on the rocketeer, it is not. This version was based on a story which was written and drawn by Darwyn Cooke for a published tribute of Rocketeer Stories by IDW.

I always wanted to cosplay from the Rocketeer and when I saw this I thought it was a clever take on the main characters and something I could do. Plus I would look silly in Cliffs Johdpurs. :D. Everything on this costume is custom, even down to the buttons. There is easily over 100+ hours of work in this this costume. The rocket pack is based on the comic version not the movie version.

If you love the movie, make sure to check out the original comic its based on by Dave Stevens. It's Just Amazing.

Excited to announce, I will be selling this Planet Comic con EXCLUSIVE limited Rocketeer print with Proceeds going to Hairy Cell Leukemia. This Print will be limited to 50, beautiful 11x17 glossy photo print, all signed and numbered for $15.

For those of you who aren’t going to be at the convention, the Rocketeer prints that don’t sell will be available online and when they are sold, out they are gone!

I will be at the booth 1009 throughout the weekend, mostly on Saturday and Sunday! Hope to see you there!

This is possibly one of my favourites of yours.  It's a fantastically unique perspective on an otherwise common cosplay.  You've reinvented the iconic Betty Page rocketeer in one of the best ways possible.  This is a testament to both your creativity and individuality that sets you apart from the crowd.

Fantastic job :]

As a fellow jetpack enthusiast, I thought you might appreciate this: voirdire99.deviantart.com/art/…. I'm doing the posters in the likeness of individuals at our Propaganda level reward for the Indiegogo campaign for MIDNIGHT THEATRE: REVENGE of the OCTAGON. You can check out the trailer at www.indiegogo.com/projects/mid….

You've got some amazing cosplay work. I love your Rocketeeress!

Plenty of jet packs in our comic! Hope ya dig it! If you're interested in being the first female Sky Marshal I can probably work out a deal for you!

Like many, I saw this on Heroes of Cosplay. After looking through your portfolio, I realized that I've seen your work before. I just never knew who "you" were per se. Now I know who to follow. Great job on this cosplay. It looked amazing on tv! :) Good luck with your future ventures.

Gorgeous and a great rendition :) Nice tie in too.. If memory serves the Rocketeer's girlfriend, Betty was drawn by Stevens with Bettie Page's face (though her body was that of his then wife... B-movie scream queen, Brinke Stevens).


Curses!!! I was at Planet Comicon and totally missed your booth. Was hugely bigger than last year so I'm sure I missed tons. Will definitely have to seek you out next time!! :rose:
