Cosplayer Rayinuya > Costume of Ciel Phantomhive from Black Butler
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The whole ensemble was originally bought from the cosplayer Spazzerbot. Even though I took it apart and modified it (mainly inner parts), she deserves the credit. The hat is largely unchanged except for flower placement.
What I did was add a high bustle pad, installed a built in petticoat in the underskirt, made another petticoat to go over the (bought) hoopskirt, had altered the bodice to fit, changed the bodice boning, edgestitched all pleats, installed new lining, replaced zipper, and permanently stitched on the chest-bow.
The wig also came with it. I think Spazzerbot had it sharpie dyed and that it came from ebay. That's all I know. Sprayed it with silicone to prevent tangles and it was good to go.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This will probably be my most favorite costume for many years! But, it's pretty cumbersome and uncomfortable. Still, I feel like a princess and a giant cupcake while wearing it.
- Wig Review
- Really soft, and doesn't tangle easily.
