Cosplayer Thel Phenom > Costume of Marquise Spinneret Mindfang from MS Paint Adventures / Homestuck
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The coat was made with a heavily modified Matrix coat pattern. I do not recommend this. The blue parts were made with Heat-n-Bond applique. It doesn't like to close all the way in the front; still trying to figure out a way to fix that.
The hat was made with a heavily modified pirate hat pattern. It's not the neatest thing I've ever made, but for my first time making a hat, I think it went well. The blue part is just bias tape and there are two holes in the top for my horns.
I completely BS'ed the skirt. The web patterns are made with the buttonhole (or satin) stitch on my machine.
I made my first pair of bootcovers for this. They go over a pair of red pumps, and are made out of PVC.
- Personal Thoughts:
- You ever want to cosplay a character vaguely, and then over time your desire to cosplay them just builds and builds? That's what happened with me and Mindfang. I guess it was my love of Serkets making itself known. And of course cosplaying Mindfang was made even better when I had my good friend Autumn with me as Redglare!
