About this Costume
- Construction Details:
Updating as I go.
** Headband **
So I started off with a silver headband 'cuz apparently white headbands have disappeared off the face of the earth in the NYC area. I don't even know. It was really annoying. So I just settled white a silver one, and made a cover for it.
The bow is made out of broadcloth. Strengthened with heat n bond with the paper still on 'cuz idk my interfacing has gone missing, and I have a crap ton of heat n bond that I just don't care if I use it like that. The flowers on the bow were originally hairclips. I just removed the clip part, and then glued/ sewed it onto the bow. The bow is also glued/ sewn onto the headband.
The triangles were the same broadcloth fabric. Just made a pattern, and heat n bond it together as well. The amount of heat n bond going into this cosplay is truly ridiculous.
The braid is a cord which I purchased in the city. It's also glued to the headband. I reinforced it to stay on with scrap white fabric though. The flower in the cord is just from one of the flowers from Michael's, which is also glued in place.
This headband also had an unfortunate amount of glue. It was all over my hands and hard to get off for a while, and really disgusting. lolz
** Sash **
Drafted a pattern to my needs. Reinforced with heat n bond 'cuz as I said before I have an abundance of it. No fucks. haha The sash closes in the back with snaps.
For the waist ornament I bought a cord in the city and strung the beads through it, and tied a knot around the beads on both sides so they didn't shift. This was pretty straight forward. IDK what else to really say about it. haha
** Boots **
