About this Costume
- Construction Details:
Made with a pattern I had already drafted for my Cammy cosplay with some minor alterations. I used a high-quality specialty spandex.
Made with the same high-quality spandex as the top, I just used my basic micro-mini skirt pattern for it and was able to make short work of the skirt.
Found at a local discount shoe store, I lucked into finding the right heel type and style for the shoes fairly quickly and for a good price.
Found at several versions of her color of tights locally and I've been building a stock-pile for quite some time in anticipation of making this alt.
I found a cute pair of fingerless faux-leather gloves at the mall in the discount bin, they even had hearts for the hole on the back of the hand! (Very fitting for Morrigan, in my opinion.)
♥~Batty Bat Buddies~♥
My batty bat buddies are really adorable plush finger puppets that I found a while ago for my other Morrigan Alt cosplay and I often can't resist carrying with me since Morrigan always has her bat buddies. :3
- Personal Thoughts:
- Morrigan is so awesome and it helps that she's one of my boyfriend's favorite characters (and now one of mine too), this cosplay came about with him constantly reminding me that Morrigan has other outfits than just her standard fight gear.
I've been attempting to do this cosplay for about 3 years but since it is so simple it kept getting pushed to the side in favor of a more complicated ones. I've had everything ready to go to make it since before last PAX East and I finally was able to sit down and get her done while I was stuck trying to work out another cosplay conundrum on a different cosplay.
(This also gave me a quick [relatively]comfy cosplay that I could get on quickly & enjoy more of the con while in costume.)
- Styling Notes
- I used the same wig as my other Win Pose cosplay. Yay for multi-cosplay wigs!
The wig came and was a bit long so while I wore it Sephygoth trimmed it to the proper length.
