Cosplayer WindoftheStars > Costume of Lilith from Borderlands
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume was a combination of found altered items and stuff made from scratch.
The red top was altered to be made lower cut, shorter and princess seams. Vest was also made and was one of the more challenging pieces to figure out, but I love the result! Yellow sweater was made from bright yellow jersey and a yellow sweater I harvested the trims from. The top, sweater and vest were dyed, painted and rubbed in chalk to give it the worn grimy Pandora feel. If you are running around a desert plant fight and killing things looking for the vault you are bound to be rather dirty!
Pants were purchased at Forever21 but altered a lot! I dropped the waist, removed the pockets, rivets, belt loops. I then made the chaps and sewed them directly to the grey pants and cut out the excess. I really didn't want the bulk of the jeans and chaps, plus it made it hard to bend my knees.
Belts are poly weave. Silver belt 'buckle' is just ABS painted silver. The shield is made of cardboard, foam, bubble wand, vinyl and blue ELwire. I rigged it so the thing lights up in the game. This version was rather ghetto so I plan to make a much better one before next con.
The boots were off ebay. The leg armor is just unaltered craft foam since I ran out of time to make it out of ABS like I had planned. Vinyl straps keep the armor in place.
Gloves were old ones I had that were already distressed and just cut up. The wrist cuffs are just vinyl.
Atlas Revlover made by Ice_Man. Tattoos was done in Ben Nye MagiColor. Ice_Man also was the one who spent hours painting on all the tats.
- Personal Thoughts:
- F***ING BORDERLANDS.
You guys don't know how much I love this game. Like, SERIOUSLY addicted to this game. Who doesn't love loot midgets and guns guns guns???
- Styling Notes
- Added pink weft to the side. Trimmed one side to give it an asymmetrical A-line look.
- Wig Review
- The color was PERFECT. I love that the color is made of bunch of different colors, so it gives it lots of dimension. The only thing I didn't care for is that since this wig has no skin top, the dense hair at top makes your head look a little big on top. Other wise it's a great quality wig!
