Cosplayer HSC-Abby > Costume of Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The dress is made out of a combination of bubblegum pink satin that I got off of ebay and bottomweight cotton sateen that I dyed with a combination of fuchsia and wine RIT dye. I used a Simplicity costume pattern (Pirates of the Caribbean/Marie Antoinette) for the basic shape, but I altered the bodice length and skirt proportions. The dress is supported by an A-line bridal crinoline and the bodice has roughly a dozen pieces of plastic boning in it. I purchased the rosettes, lace at neck and sleeves, and gold trim, altered some pink ribbon for the little bows, and painted the gold lace and bow with Colortool spray paint. I made the necklace out of sculpy, the hair comb out of craftfoam, and the earrings out of wire, cardboard, and plastic pearls.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume is so gloriously tacky.
- Styling Notes
- I didn't do much to the wig aside from hairspraying the bangs to the side and pinning up some of the shorter curls on the top portion of the wig.
- Wig Review
- This wig is the perfect style for this costume, I just wish I could have gotten it in a darker shade of brown.
