Luise Meyrink
King of Fighters

Cosplayer: Amy-Lou

Status: Complete

Condition: Retired

3rd October 2007: The whole suit is thick black satin with an extra seam in the sleeves for the split. I thought the sleeves needed to look as lush as the rest, so instead of trimming with lace, I made a white satin sleeve with a white lace over-sleeve that was slightly longer. The lining is a beautiful green/blue satin that was just the perfect colour. The belt is again the fantastic thick felt I've used since Feena, covered in blue suiting with silver ribbon sewn on in strips and white zigzag stitching.

All the patterns are painted on with a white Pilot marker. It really needs some more layers to get a bright white, so if I keep going over it, they'll really stand out for next time.

All the beads and bits were from Hobbycraft and painted in glass paint if they weren't already the right colour. The belt butterfly was a lucky find of a super tacky necklace in Claires that I painted with glass paint and glued a safety pin to.

The headpiece was made from a sheet of acetate laminated to make it thicker and then painted with glass paint and sprinkled with glitter. The glitter is only on the back to show through, but I'm going to put it on the front now so it'll show up better and take the sheen off the acetate in photos. These are attached to a wire headband that runs under the wig and out either side.

I was wearing stupidly large platform heels to get that leggy Luise look, I can't wear the trousers without them or they drag on the floor.

I did have some matching blue false nails, but I ran out of time before the group photos >.<

Thanks to Tak for the fantastic makeup job! It makes such a difference.
