My favorite aspect is the steel boned bodice. It was my first time making a corset and I am elated with my results.
I made a tutorial on my method for making the pattern! :D Check it out here!
Because it was a low back corset, much time was spent figuring out how to get the bust area to stay up without any back support. After tinkering with the mock up for days, I finally cut my good fabric. The ears were made out of a bridal headband, 5 gauge wire, fleece, and green 2way. They are a bit heavy since the ears are so long, but I wanted to be as accurate as possible to Kallen's design. The shoes started off as a black pat leather pair of pumps, painted over with Angelus leather shoe paint. I bought a few colors to get the mix just right, but now I have the whole paint set so... hooray, I'm ready for more crazy shoe colored cosplays. As for the little heart thing, I made it out of foamies. Then I sealed it with Mod Podge a few times to smooth out the jagged edges, then I painted it. After that, I used Envirotex Pour-on Varnish to get a glass-like finish.
- Personal Thoughts:
- My friend Dee was making a Kallen bunny, and I wished that C.C. had a cute sexy variant in the anime. Dee (HoodedWoman) and I however, came up with the idea of starting a big bunny group based off of Kallen's design with all of our female friends that already happened to have other Geass girl cosplays. I chose to go with the color dark green because it mimicked Kallen's color scheme. Kallen's bunny is pink, which is somewhat related to her hair color, so... Voila! Green for C.C.
