Cosplayer Celeste Orchid > Costume of Morrigan Aensland from Marvel vs Capcom 3
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- First I bought all the materials. I then proceeded to sunbake my feathers so they would have a specialized gradient to them to give it extra flare. I felt the need for only white feathers was too plain.
I used a two way stretch hot pink vinyl for the main corset. I used simplicity pattern 5006 and modified it to become a leotard similar to Morrigan's artwork. I added a bra inside the corset leotard to push up what little chest bumps I have. I then added lining and boning. The back is structured to be open so I can add my wings or without. After finishing the leotard I cut out the heart under the bustline and bias taped around the edge for a good clean cut.
For the tights I used baby pink leggings and a different color vinyl for the bats. I drew the bat design on foam and then cut out six bats. I used spray adhesive to keep them in place. I then sewed on clear nylon thread so they wouldn't move. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
My boots are dark pink cowboy rainboots with the right amount of heel and the cut was perfect. The only downfall to me is that the shade is a bit off and they aren't as skin tight as I like but they worked beautifully.
I used clip in purple extensions in my real hair and a bang clip.
I did my own make up.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I've had my eye on this costume FOREVER. I've liked Morrigan and always have her in my team. I felt pretty bad that I didn't have big enough boobs to fulfill her cup size. OH WELL. I love this character and I'll cosplay her. This is a fun hobby right? >.> <.< >.>
um. It's also pink with purple hair. HOW COULD I NOT?!
