About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Entirely made by me apart from the gloves, pleather boots (which I added the satin onto), belt and the wig, of course. I think I did pretty okay as it was the first time I ever made a cape, pants and a frock coat ^.^. However be warned as this can be a pretty pricey outfit to make and a lot of patience..^^;. Under Vest: I used a pirates pattern from simplicity to make. I make it with black bridal satin and lined with a breathable black material. I individually pushed in each of the metal studs on the vest which was a bit painful and time consuming. The buckles on the front was back by craft foam which was coated silver rubnbuff and black dimensional paint and seal. The individual buckles were added. Black Frock Coat:This by far took the longest. I altered the frock coat pattern which come along with the pirates pattern I used for the vest. It was made out of black velveteen with a slight stretchy white lace lining. Many..many golds buttons and gold trim was sewn on both side down the front of the coat and the cuffs around the wrists of the arms. I added in the gold collar as well. Cape and cape clips: I used a vampire cape pattern from simplicity to make it. I used black matte bridal satin on the outside and the lining was poly satin white. I made my own collar pattern and added the heavy or craft interfacing to make it stand up. The cape clips were made from craft foam and decorated with dimensional paint. They were backed with silver ribbon for strength since they have the chain clipped to it. Cravat:Made from the same white fabric I lined by cape with. Boots:I got boots that already had a cuff on them and added the silver fabric I used on my cape for it Pants:Poly-Satin black. I used just an ordinary pants pattern and altered them to fit me. Sword:In Progress Shield:In progress Pretty much everything on this outfit was complicated and took quite awhile to make except maybe the pants..XD. Even picking out the fabric was tough..>.<. Either way, I'm glad that my hard work paid off ^.^.^. There's just a few things I need to do before the outfit's complete like style the wig to have the Sephiroth style bangs..XD. I'm still in the process of making the sword and shield.
