Cosplayer Spookloops > Costume of Allen Walker from D. Gray-Man
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- For a snazzy well-behaved uniform, I used all twill. I loved working with it, and it was a refreshing change of pace from my previous fabric choices. The jacket is fully lined, and while the outside has only one row of buttons, the jacket is actually double-breasted so it'll sit nice and flat. The pocket is fully functional paned zip pocket. All of the bias is made by me (almost all the bias I use, I make myself). The piping is store bought however. I'm really pleased with how the curved piping in the back came out! The patch is entirely hand embroidered by me - another one was made for Kairie, who was my Kanda. Most of the bits and bobs are sculpey or random beads.
This costume features a leather pouch, which was my first time working with leather. A huge thank you to Chris for helping me with this from start to finish!
- Personal Thoughts:
- Piping! Buttons! Bias! Embroidery! Tailoring! Pockets! Oh, this costume has all the things I love!
- Styling Notes
- This is one of the first wigs (might actually be THE first...) that I tried to cut and style myself. I tried to make the original bob piece-ier and a little bit of spiky-ness in the back, but hedgehog spikes or anything - just some definition.
- Wig Review
- I really love the colour of this wig. any thanks to Hime no Toki for conveniently selling some wigs out of her collection when I happened to need a silvery grey short wig!
