About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Both the teal and the red are made of semi-shine spandex, crafted by altering an existing legging pattern to my measurements, and cutting up an old t-shirt pattern to be my go-to spandex shirt pattern. I have one v-neck shirt for Redglare and a turtleneck one to use as Terezi, tucked into the PVC waistband. The vest was self-patterned based on a scratch mockup I did, drawing in the Libra glyph shape. The skirt was also self-patterned using my legging pattern as a base. This was my first time making spandex gloves, and it wasn't a perfect attempt (3rd try two nights before the con, it was GOOD ENOUGH to be going on with), but I'm glad they match all the other reds on my costume! The boot covers are of marine vinyl, and were another "first"--I patterned them based on a pair of thrift store boots, pulled them on, and hoped for the best (they self-support, luckily, no glue involved! and they don't slide, YAY). The glasses were sort of interesting, but thanks to a tutorial on Tumblr by Rettozero, I basically found red lenses in the proper shape in a large Mardi Gras mask, popped them out, drilled holes in them with a 1/16" drillpress, and re-attached a nose bridge and ear bars from another pair with pliers and tiny screws. Horns are of Model Magic, painted by me, and attached with snaps through the wefts of my wig to a base worn between my wig cap and the wig itself (thanks again to Steph for this approach!) Making Terezi's flarping cane was one of the most fun ventures I've undertaken in cosplay yet! It is made of two lengths of PVC with a joint piece in the middle and a cap over one end. The dragonhead was sculpted out of flowerfoam with regular clay tools, covered in paperclay and spray-painted. The sword inside is a wooden stake table-sawed in half and painted to have Vriska's blood on the end.
- Personal Thoughts:
- you'll have to give me a moment, I'm too busy weeping over the Scourge Sisters dynamic to speak properly on how much I love Terezi in her FLARP outfit and the repercussions of what she did while wearing it
