|Made at the same time as my Franziska Von Karma cosplay. The same evil black crush velvet that was used for her, was used for Angel's dress here. However, it came out a lot nice, perhaps because I could rely on the stretchy material to make the dress figure-hugging, as it had no detail to stretch out of place.|
At some point, I will add the fluffy collar and cuffs to the coat with perhaps some fur with a shaggier pile. Other than that I don't know what I could use to make it furrier. I'll see - I probably won't be reviving this costume for a while, so I may just remake some of it from scratch. Apart from the dress, which I was very happy with.
The hat was a bit of disaster, as I discovered that I in fact did not have as much red felt as I believed to. I cut one of the parts too small, realised I didn't have enough to redo it, and so had to scrap the hat completely, and butcher the red Obi from my previous cosplay. I also did not stop to think how her hat was held on until the last minute. (Actually, how the hell IS her hat held on?!) It's quite heavy, so elastic wouldn't do it much justice. I ended up adding a red ribbon, which thankfully my hair hid most of the time.
