Cosplayer BattyJuice > Costume of Felicia from Darkstalkers
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I say this was hard because i've never even heard of cosplay till 2010 and i had no idea what to do or where to start.
I took a pair of jean shorts and cut them up and covered them with fur and fur trim with hot glue (leaving a slit in front to button and zip them for easy bathroom access). The tail is a tube of white fleece stuffed with batting and a bit of wire for shape and sewn/glued on through a hole in the back.
the bra is a cheap strapless one i had lying around, also covered in fur and fur trim with hot glue.
Random fur cut outs and trim were used for arm, tummy, and legs- i originally wore white thighhighs on my legs and arms so i didnt have to make long fur gloves or boot covers. both parirs of paws i made are fur glued over winter gloves with sculpy claws.
the feet are vans covered in foam first the more hot glue and fur with sculpy claws! I like wearing fur legwarmers and white fishnets because Youmacon is cold in Detroit.
that wig.....lord help me the wig hahaha that was an experience. I styled it all myself even sewed in some extra blue hair to try and make it bigger. it has the track lines showing where the bangs are seperated but you cant see them with the ear head band on.
the ears are cardboard inbetween layers of fur and (you guessed it) hot glued to a headband covered in white fleece which covers my ears and ties behind my head. i added some blue ribbon trails on it too
- Personal Thoughts:
- my first cosplay! :D I didnt even know who Felicia was, i saw a wall scroll of her at a friends house and I said "She's cute, ill be her!" Therefor I went home and watched Darkstalkers for the first time and fell in love
