Cosplayer Pirogoeth > Costume of Death from Sandman
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The wig is a black Vegas wig from Arda Wigs with the ponytail wefts removed. Some hairspray and styling just using my fingers gave it just the right look.
The ankh was actually the first thing I bought for her. At the OSU Ren Faire, there was a booth with some amazing jewelry. When I saw the ankh I thought it was perfect!
After much consideration, I decided to go ahead and do the make-up. After looking at various cosplays, the make-up really finishes the look up. I bought Ben Nye's Clown White and Translucent Powder, and some Merhon Barrier spray. If I do everything right, I won't be leaving white on everyone and everything!
I already have an awesome black t-shirt in my wardrobe. I also already have black and blue skinny jeans. The one thing I'm going to add is some arm-warmers. It would take more maintenance than it's worth to keep my arms hair free, so black arm-warmers it is! I've got some black fingerless gloves from Sock Dreams. I'll have to do something for my arms between my elbow and the sleeve, but it'll be much easier than my entire arms.
- Personal Thoughts:
- On the very last page of The Wake, Death is seated and wearing a black t-shirt and black jeans. I love how simple it is!
- Styling Notes
- I removed the ponytail wefts with an X-Acto knife because all of my seam rippers were hiding from me. Also I wanted to have the option of using the wefts for another wig if needed. Once that was off it just needed some hairspray and it was ready to go!
