Cosplayer Ambrosia > Costume of Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Armor is EVA and craft foam in multiple layers, surprisingly not as scary as I thought it would be to heat-form it. I was terrified I was going to set it on fire in Tek's oven and burn his apartment down, but all I ended up doing was staining his bathtub black from washing all the oil off the chainmail. The only sewing I did was the gambeson, which has a layer of quilt batting, and helped me get rid of some really old fabric I otherwise could not find a use for. Big thanks to Alyssa of Propped-Up Creations for being my patterning buddy and twin-Brienne! Couldn't have done this without you.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Shaking and crying. Crying and shaking. This character is so important to me in so many ways, and making this costume was an absolute adventure from start to finish.
