Costume Information

Cost : £70

Snape has long being my favourite character in Harry Potter. Right back from the first book, I've loved his character. And I loved him more once the films were released.
I knew he wasn't quite a good guy or a fully bad one in the first 5 books, by the 6th I went against his character due to killing Dumbledore, and then by the 7th I was back in love with his character as I realised a lot of things he'd done in the other books, were for reasons. He is a strong character, and one I'm glad I loved from the start.

So what can I say? From my other cosplays, I'm use to making his style of clothing, visually I think I could pull him off, so heres hoping I can pull off one of my bigger childhood loves.

And then I can go around hitting people with books like a git Snape is/can be.

Comparison (Posted 19th April 2012)

After uploading the photo from Kita... I noticed how similar to a photo from Thought Bubble it is.
And what a difference I can see.

On me alone; I'd managed to pose better as Snape, tweak the robes, the wig works a bit better (its no longer as healthy looking and more greasy in my opinion due to restyle and cutting), and applied the makeup better so I look a lot more glare-y dungon bat then normal me.

My Draco managed to get their hair the right colour and was able to style their hair better, the added robes worked, and the posing had also improved for Draco.

All in all... wow. Big changes without much in terms of effort. xD This makes me happy realising now.

Robes (Posted 23rd October 2011)

Finished sewing the outter robe today.
And of the jacket, I just need to make the button holes for the front, before it's at least wearable. Since, I need to go buy more buttons for the cuffs so no point working with them right now otherwise I wont be able to wear it semi-complete. XD

I do demand though, that the wig hurries up. :l

Fabric and wand (Posted 12th October 2011)

Bought fabric over the weekend, and my wand arrived today.
So I think it's offical, this cosplay is in progress now. :D

Wand is so pretty as well.

Just waiting on my wig now to arrive. Wig, sewing and then seeing how it all looks together.
