Description
A version of the character done by an artist on DA (Rynnae) that me and j_mercuryuk decided to cosplay because of the awesome design.

The jacket was evil, there is no two ways about it and I still wish upon the fabric a firey death. The pattern was simple enough, the details were awkward but doable (bar the front buckle, which was fun), the collar had to be changed because it would not work as it was, but the main problem was simply how much the fabric frayed all the time.

The skirt is short. Very short. I made that in a day easily and had fun doing so. Everyone was amused. Under top was also easy, as were the belts and chokers and silver accessories.

I also found that, despite being told otherwise, gloves are perfectly possible to make, almost easy, but very, very fiddly and time consuming, that's all.

The bow is mostly cardboard, papiermachie and paint, but somewhere inside is a coathanger. The arrow is (I think) a bamboo stick. I found it in the garage, papier machied the end of it and painted it.
