|Cost :||About... £64??|
|I wanted to cosplay Zatanna because not only becauseshe is one of my favourite DC characters, but also becuase her outfit is so awesome and I haven't seen many Zatanna cosplays, which is a shame-- she needs much more love!|
This costume was assembled from pre-existing clothes, so all of it was fairly easy to put together... I think the hardest thing was actually feeling confident enough to wear it out and about!
The tophat was borrowed from another costume, and all of the other pieces were bought locally.

Analysis (Posted 1st February 2010)
Well, Zatanna is all done now, and taking a look back I guess my legs don't look QUITE as bad as I thought they did. Well, they do in some of the pictures, but it could be worse :)
I'm a bit upset that I didn't make more of this myself, but I think it's safe to leave scratch building a tail coat for a few years!! That deos mean I'm not participating in Feb Expo's masquerade, but I'll be watching!!
Here's a price breakdown of everything I have!
For photo purposes, I'm looking into getting a cheap white rabbit teddy to hide in my hat, as well as a 'traditional' magic wand- y'know, thoese ones that are black with white tips? I've also decided that even though I'm debuting Zataana at Feb Expo, she's re-surfacing for the Kitacon prom, so look out for her there, too :)
As for hair and make-up, I'm thinking dark smokyness around the eyes with a thin line of liner (will need practise!), and straight hair with slight wavyness at the ends. I SHOULD be re-dying it black, too, which means even though it's proably just an inch or two too short, I could pass with my real hair. :)

Okay, I don't want to sound whiney or any of that stuff, but I've finally got it all together, and I put it all on and... yeah. I just didn't feel as good as I thought I would, which left me in an immense downer for the majority of the evening. My legs... they look like tree trunks!! :(
Note To Self- (Posted 29th January 2010)
*Should probably start learning how to walk in heels, if this is for Feb @_@*
Finally! (Posted 29th January 2010)
Well, I tried to take progress shots of the underneath of the outfit yesterday- but my camera went for a walk -_-
It's been a while... (Posted 12th January 2010)
I'm resurrecting Zatanna if cost allows, for Midlands Expo Feb this year. Borrowing Ryuk's top hat and everything else is fairly easily accessible... but Tailcoat is £45 but it's antique and lovelyyyyyyy and do want ~~~
The Hard Part Is Over! (Posted 3rd September 2009)
I finally found a plain black swimming costume to go underneath the shirt :D
