Cosplayer April Gloria > Costume of Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Corset: I ordered a white corset on eBay, and used a black Sharpie (ugh..I know..but I was desperate and inexperienced) to draw the black lines.For the second go-round, I sewed some lace around the neckline to make it more game accurate. The corset fit very poorly; it did not cinch me in at all.
Bolero: I had this made by Sherryval Costumes on Etsy. For the second wear I altered the sleeves to make them more slim fitting.
Choker: I got it from CosplayDesu on Etsy.
Skirt. It's literally a rectangle of fabric sewn up the sides, and with a sleeve for a drawstring at the top. Not proud of it.
I sewed a new petticoat so I didn't have to use the inaccurate floor-length poofy one I wore to the first con.
Shoes: Ordered from eBay. Second time around I strung grey-blue ribbon though them like Elizabeth has in the game.
Thimble: I superglued the thimble to my finger the first round. Second time I used eyelash glue and that didn't work well.
I wore Ardell Edgy lashes on the top eyelids.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume was kind of thrown together last minute for Motor City Comic Con and "edited" later in the summer. I had to change a few things that weren't accurate to the game. I think it turned out well enough; people at the con seemed to enjoy it. I was the only Elizabeth there that day!
