Cosplayer Lia / SelfSovereign > Costume of Melfina from Outlaw Star
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The shoulder hang is craft foam and bias tape, with super strong magnets at the tips for the Styrofoam ornaments which were covered in drywall mud and carved into the appropriate shape. All the ornaments are held on by magnets; I have never had a problem with them coming off. The poncho has the appropriate slits up the front, but not the one in the back.
- Personal Thoughts:
- There's more fabric in her poncho than you might think. This one is a full circle of blue and light blue, and fully lined in a pink cotton blend. I love hearing people say, "Oh my god it's Outlaw Star! You never see people cosplay that anymore." and make their day when they see my Melfina.
- Styling Notes
- It looked like a dead-something holding it upside down and applying hairspray at the roots for her ridiculous fluff-mullet hairstyle.
- Wig Review
- It needs reshaping with each use, even if I store it on a wig head.
