This is really really good, I wish I was as talented as you are, please keep up the good work! Many Kudos!
This looks beautiful, Laura – great work!
Will you be around this weekend? I was going to go retrieve the velvet cloak fabric from the cleaners tomorrow……see if it will work or not.
This was a lovely comment I received via email about this costume:
Your Mord’sith costume looks great! I am in the process of replicating the Denna white, so I definitely feel your pain when it comes to leather work. I read in your blog that you had trouble coming up with pics for the back. Definitely check out Mord’sith leathers group on facebook. The moderator has a ton of detailed pics of her costume…I would be lost without them! Also, there are a ton of discussions about leather, buckles and such! Your costume does look super fantastic!
This looks really good, Mike! (And we also liked the music in the video you had posted before. hehe)
So as I was sanding the disc hook, I started angling it and making it have a keystone feel. I decided to make a matching piece down below, just to give the disc holder a little something. Most of the movie is hexagonal or squarish, but since this was on the bottom of the circle, I felt a bottom heavy pentagon would match the hook at the top of the circle better.
I also sanded the edge of the front panel circle so that the edges were slightly rounded, since the movie seems to have more rounded corners that harsh 90 degree bends. But this is a very, very subtle rounding.
Also has Each person’s disc holder in the movie seemed a little different, Kevin Flynn’s had almost celtic scrollwork on his. Anyway, just thought I would explain the rationale behind it.
I’m disappointed that their beards aren’t the vibrant blues and yellows of the book, but otherwise they look awesome!
So…not a secret project, I take it? 😀 If so, mind if I share this around? The gauntlets turned out quite well.
Also: Trollocs aren’t renowned for their grammar acumen, so I’ll give you a pass. This time. hehe
What kind of material was used to make this top?
Great job on the costumes. I’m making my own Khaleesi costume for D*C this year as well. I appreciate the instructions you posted. Gave me a few ideas 🙂 thank you. You are very talented.
Is that Gabe in the background of the picture of Laura?
This is absolutely beautiful!
I’m attempting do do the same dress only with the violet fabric and leather.
I’ve got all my fabric. Just have to figure how to put it together now.
Any pointers? I’m pretty nervous about making it look just right.
If you could help that would be wonderful! Thanks!
Hi there! If you have a body form, you can drape all of your pattern pieces to make sure they sit and fit appropriately! If you can’t do that, then I would recommend buying a dress pattern and altering it. If you want to look at up close images of the costume, you can find them by doing a search on flickr for the person peddler_creates’. Then you can look in their FIDM 2012 TV folder. Also, I would recommend buying light brown leather that has been dyed all the way through. You want to buy a leather that is very sturdy, but can still be sewn through with a leather needle! I hope that helps a little! Thanks!
Excuse me, what kind of ears is that Zelda cosplayer wearing? small anime? large anime? legend? i’m confused, because her ears are both pointing to the sides, and in your pictures I see the ears are pointing to the back… could you help me, please? I really like the same Zelda’s ears (:
Those are our anime ears, the $17 style. Depending on the shape of your natural ears, these guys tend to go more back, or more out. I like wearing them because they do stick out sideways a bit more than some of our other styles (especially the high elf). But you can adjust the angle a bit by the way you glue them on.
Thanks you so much, kalessaradan (:
absolutely stunning job on this costume! i am attempting to create this same outfit,could you possibly tell me how you went about creating the golden filigree armour around the neck and shoulders? I have been trying to work out this part of the costume for a while now >.<
Hello! I actually made the armor out of foam, and then I painted it. I would recommend to make it out of very thin leather though, it will be much more durable that way. After you make it, all you need to do is paint it with gold rub, which can be found at Hobby Lobby. Thanks!
The first photograph, are they the Legend, Twilight or Large Anime elf ears?
Those are the Large Anime ears, also available in a Pro Kit too!
Niiiiice!!!! You look amazing!
That’s a costume I would like to wear someday!
