Costume Information

Description
So Definatly wearing this for May Expo
on the sunday as part of the Darkstalkers group!

Shes win :D
But seriously....
People of Cosplay Island!
I know your all lovely =3
and 9/10 you will all say something nice, even if its not the truth...

However, I need to know that I can pull this cosplay off....otherwise there is no point in me doing her.
So I need you all to be as honest as possible...


TL:DR
Please give me comments/critques about whether you not you think I will suit her

COMPLETE
Though I think I kinda failled epically
Would like to do her again
The wings got epically bashed by the wind and ended up not sitting right in most photos I have seeen.
They also didn't sit how they were made to sit due to not being able to support their weight....therefore the boning ended up looking weird ><
Also bat tights would be remade...
So I would def remake them...I am happy with everything else though.

I seriously can't think of anyone better than you to cospay Morrigan! You have both the height and the body for it! :D

by Mtani on Saturday, 24 April, 2010 - 23:16

I'm all for constructive criticism, glad to hear someone's open to it! There is no better, or quicker, way to growth. So here's some honest pointers from me:

From what Mtani said I gather you're tall, that's one factor down. You've got very nice legs and curves overall, though if you want to pull off Morrigan perfectly you'll have to bend a couple rules of nature. If i were you I'd put some boning into the waistline of the top and/or wear shapewear to give you as tiny a waist as you feel comfortable wearing. Then I'd pad the bra with some thick gel pads to really enhance the boobs, yet keep the jiggle. You're already lucky enough to own a pair of gorgeously shaped ones, so you won't have to give them a lift or anything. Heels is a must, to get both the posture in particular. I don't know how extravert you are, but don't forget to lay on the attitude for this cos, as your moves and poses will make up quite a chunk of successful Morrigan.

Good luck! I love a good Morrigan cos, cant wait to see you do it! :)

Oh my gosh YES! ^_^ You've got great thighs - which imo looks best on fighter chars like Morrigan, Chun Li, etc.
Great advice there from Adamoluna. It's TU from me ^_^

Yes, you can pull this off :)

O_O
Wow...thank you so much everyone!
I am not that confident in myself, but I am going to try and hopefully not be an insult to Morrigan XD

Also @ Adamoluna: I feel quite awesome by you commenting because I semi-worship your cosplay skills *_*

You suit her down to the ground, im not able to talk indepth like Adamoluna because i fail at such things but i wouldnt've suggested it to nana...and then came to you with the idea xD if i didnt think you were the woman for the job <3

Adamoluna has already said it all.

I will second the boning though. Make sure to use proper steel boning though and not the crappy plastic stuff you get in really flimsy store bought corsets.

Yes, your shape will suite her well, you're tall and curvy. Bringing your waist in will enhance your hips and padding the breast area out a little will enhance your breasts.

@Ranma 1-2 but of course!
You'll have to get through my bodyguards though XD
I told some guy friends that were coming to expo I was doing this and they insisted they would act as protectors XD Amusing.

I'm glad..in an outfit like that it will protect you from any weird stalkers. Doesn't happen much, thankfully, but I have heard some stories of girls being followed around all day. So this way you can enjoy your cosplay. :)

Is Morrigan for Sat or Sunday ?

Journal

Big wings 2 (Posted 26th May 2010)

Well after alot of rage and fits and they still look like shite meh
This is 1 finsihed.
I'm working on the other one now, in between my sewing macheien HATING ME.

So I appologise for failll...but a prop maker I am not >_>

Big wings 1 (Posted 26th May 2010)

Started as a chalk outline on some fabric.
Same as little wings, sewed the wire frasme inside the fabric and bent them to shape .

Head wings 2 (Posted 26th May 2010)

Thats them finsihed, and painted with this lovely purply shimmer fabric paint ^^

Head wings 1 (Posted 19th May 2010)

Started the head wings yesterday and they are about 80% done now.
Just black material sown around a wore frame :D
Quite simple but a pain in a the butt to do
I need to line them with purple material...that was the plan, but I dont think it will work so might have to get some purple fabric paint.

Wings (Posted 17th May 2010)

Progress on the wings started with the help of the awesome Narahara :D

Bodice (Posted 11th May 2010)

Made a serious start on stuffs, and this is what I has.
The feathers were a random chance find, they have some sparkle to them as well.

Also remaking the gloves.

Dobebedo (Posted 6th May 2010)

So my wig came yay!
Prettttyy

MY last exam is tommorow, and then I AM FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
So I'll stop with the experiments and actually do stuff XD
I have a good idea what I need to make everything.
should be good

I also have to find time to finish Carly Oo

Corset test 2 (Posted 30th April 2010)

Okaaaaaay
Made the gloves...out of a pair of tights! Wiiiin
I am wearing a corset, a little unhderbust one...I can make it tigher than that, but I had just eaten lol XD

Um tights are a little tooo pink might change them.
Need to add the heart and also the white fur....
Also I'll have clear straps so you cant see my bra on the day ^^

Wig ordered (Posted 28th April 2010)

This is the wig I ordered.
I have seen so many different styles of Morrigan with her going from like cyan blue to light bright green *_* So I was confuzzled on what to go with.
But I love the colour on this, nice bluey green, I hope it actually looks like that ^^'
I based it off the animnated ending to the games that the Japanses got :D

Test (Posted 25th April 2010)

I had another experiment today with my corset (which is awesomely purple...good for everything else but not so good for this)
But anyways, I corset-ted and got my waist very tiiiny.
So I am thinking I shall just cover my corset in a stretchy black material, which will cling to the curves and cover up.
The corset should also prove a good way of holding the wings tight against me.

However, this leads me to a problem with the heart though...Not only do I not want to cut a hole out of fav piece of clothing, I do not think I even could due to it being steel boned XD
