I was saddened by the supreme lack of merchandise for cosplay as a general hobby — so I made this kickass shirt for myself on redbubble!
I threw it up for the public if you guys wanna get one too!! Should be great for sewing days and on-the-way to the convention days!
To celebrate the new season, have a photoset!
With Sylar as Hannibal Lector & Sheila as both Abigail Hobbs and fem!Will Graham!
Cosplay by Aicosu!
I’m selling my Margaery Tyrell cosplay.
I’ve auctioned it on ebay since I know a lot of people were interested in buying it. So now you all have a chance.
I was reluctant to do it since I’m so proud of this dress — but I’m never gonna wear it again and someone should!
The information on the dress is listed. THE ROSE BROOCH IS NOT INCLUDED but as I say, I will be willing to make one for you for an extra 50$ and some time to complete the order. Sorry that’s expensive, but I w ould make it from Worbla and it does take some time for something so delicate.
If you have any questions let me know! I have tons of pictures too!
I’m also working on some techniques for Loki’s scale mail armor.
I got this idea (of cutting leather) from Aziza from Peabody Tailoring!
I tried some weathering too… maybe its the paint or the scales need some backward ironing to stick out some more, but I think it needs a little something more to make it realistic.
Sylar’s Rei Ryugazaki cosplay is for sale!
You can buy it at our store envy. And if you do it by the end of the week I can ship it out on monday or tuesday.
It comes with the jacket and pants (I can throw in some water shoes if you like too, they are just black water shoes, size 8)
No wig or glasses. (Our wig is bad and sylar broke the glasses when he dove in the pool.)
Watch our store envy for more costumes we are considering selling. Like my Margaery Tyrell and more.
It’s really all in the pattern.
This is the shape I came up with for Margaery. From top to bottom it measures from behind my neck to the top up my waist (just below my ribs). The two pieces with overlap enough to hide the lower part of your cleavage.
Also - VERY IMPORTANT — there are straight darts to accommodate your breasts, here and here (in red.) So when you cut your fabric, take into account an inch in that area you are going to pinch together to make the dart.
Trying this on or using a mannequin will really, really help.
^Dont worry about that extra fabric on the bottom, I ended up cutting it off.
When I was finishes sewing it to the skirt, I sewed on some ribbon on the top of the halter that I can tie tighter or looser in order to keep the whole thing up. I also sewed the front panels together when I was done, that way they didint part open and show my boobs unexpectedly.
That being said — this pattern has the tendency to wrinkly oddly at the breasts when you slouch. So long as you keep your shoulders taut you will be fine — but it is very annoying. Its a problem that could be solved with a second set of darts somewhere — but from the reference photos of margaery — she doesn’t have ANY darts to begin with.
^See? UGH. Annoying. That being said — If I just pinch that part of the fabric together and make another dart — it wouldn’t happen anymore.
Here’s a shot of the back with the shoulder piece and ribbons if you want it.
As far as the shoulders go — they are a VERY specific shape. I made them like six times before I got it.
Here I made this shoddy drawing for you:
Okay so — the black outlines are the shape of the shoulders. That way they flare out straight but curve around your back into the bodice to make an armhole. THAT CURVE IS SUPER IMPORTANT>
The red x’s are where the shoulder has to be tacked or sewn down to the corners on the bodice (you can see it obviously on the pictures of the bodice pieces up at the top of this post.
The pink x’s are about where you tack on the front of the shoulders — according to wherever you arms end up.
FINALLY — and just to throw it in there because why not — I made the skirt with this tutorial. Just make sure you have enough fabric to cut Margaery’s skirt all in one go —- because her’s is pretty long.
Hope this all helps you!!
Guess who said yes to being Booker!?!!?!?
As soon as he said yes I rifled through our closet and put this together from some old clothes and Corvo’s vest. VUA LA! Booker cosplay made in an hour!!!
SEE YOU AT ALA!
All ready for ALA tomorrow!!
I’ve worn my Elizabeth costume so many times and have so many pictures it was starting to get boring… so I tore up the costume, weathered it, added a bit of blood and made the game damaged version!!
Super excited!! Now I just gotta convince Sylar to wear this Booker costume….
