Cosplayer amaryie > Costume of Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Collaborative process with Jacaranda, Hairspring, Superneutrality, and Chika (whose outfit I'm also making)
Scarf, pants and shirt were purchased.
Jacket is a twill from Joann and the back emblem is a 7-hour applique out of bottomweight fabric (not crazy, we just did the jackets before Taobao offered back patches...sob). Buttons are industrial snaps hammered in.
Harness is in the process of being reconstructed, but brown costume pleather cut into two inch strips and sewn into 7/8" straps, then each takes a 90 minute fitting process. Belt buckle and leather belt were purchased from Tandy, then covered in pleather to match. Belts are from second hand shop, and the support in the back is made from craft foam and duck canvas.
Butt sash is moleskin, no more no less lol
Shoes were bought, painted with Angelus paint, and redesigned on top using furniture leather. Straps are leather cording.
3DMG is still in progress-its own page will be added when completed :]
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume never ends in terms of construction.../flop
