About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This is a perfect example of something being released, and finishing it up in a week for a con the next weekend. While I planned to do it a week before the con, I didn't really begin two days before the con.
Bought the green shirt fabric a couple days after deciding to do it. For the shirt I modified a pattern, and then for the vest and cape I drafted the patterns myself. it was a bit of trial and error with the cape, I did a rough idea of what I wanted to do on scrap fabric I had around, and when I got something I liked I moved on to doing it on the blue fabric.
The vest was just a lot of pinning and repinning on myself when it came to shaping it right. I really need to get a dress form.
The bow is comprised of three pieces. I couldn't find where the hell my interfacing was when I was making it (actually I still can't find it), but luckily the fabric was stiff enough that I could get away with not having any.
I made my top hat from left over blue fabric, scrap black fabric, vinyl, and lots and lots of hot glue.
Pants were the only thing I didn't make which came from my closet.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I'm a vampire! I'm a vampire! And I lost my fangs~
Whoops. My bat went missing in the hotel room for my Otakon shoot. I haven't found it. TT^TT
