Cosplayer Sarcasm-hime > Costume of Morpheus from Sandman
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This one, made for my husband Stuart, didn't have as many components as my Dream Hunters costume...but it was still a lot of work. The most time-consuming part of this costume was, of course, the massive cloak. It's completely hand-painted with silver, iridescent purple and gold fabric paint, and then I sewed sequins and beads to the centre of the 'flowers' so it would sparkle. This cloak represents at least 3 weeks of almost non-stop work. It's huge and extremely heavy (not to mention hard to walk around in) but it drapes beautifully and I'm very proud of it.
- Personal Thoughts:
- When I heard Worldcon was coming to Toronto, I knew I had to do something unbelievably fancy just to fit in. I'd seen pics of previous Worldcon masquerades, and the bar is pretty damn high. Then the two-doll set of Dream Hunters and Ramadan Morpheus was released, and I knew I HAD to make them. ^_^ What followed was almost 2 years of planning and work. -.-;; And I don't even want to THINK about how much money I've spent on these costumes....x_x;; I used the dolls as my main reference, especially with Ramadan, but with Dream Hunters each illustration of Amano's is a bit different so I felt free to pick and choose elements and use artistic license.
