Cosplayer Cerulean Rogue/Andrea Austin > Costume of Maou-sama from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The main costume itself was made with duchess satin (dark red), taffeta (brighter red, black lines and trim), and chiffon (sleeves). Additionally, I used red glue-on gems on the sleeves, feather trim for the neck/shoulders and cuffs, and Sculpey wrapped in taffeta for the horns. It took me about a month from receiving materials to finishing the last stitches the Saturday of Fanime.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Wow, this costume caused me a lot of headaches. This was my first time altering a commercial pattern for a costume (neckline, sleeves, general construction) and it seemed there were two new problems for every issue I 'fixed'. But I love the costume, in spite of the hassle. This was my second fully-made costume, so I'm especially proud of how well it turned out, even if I was literally finishing it up in the hotel room the day of craftsmanship judging!
A special thank you to my boyfriend for not only his support, but his help with both acquiring the materials and with setting the eyelets on the back of the costume.
- Styling Notes
- Not a lot of styling for Maou-sama, just cut some bangs in and added some framing layers.
- Wig Review
- Beautiful wig, but it tended to get a bit tangled as I wore it. If I can't salvage it prior to AX, I may have to switch it for a different version. Doesn't take away the awesomeness that is the wig.
