Sister Rosalia

Lara and Patience


Costume Information


Height: 5'10''

Weight: 140lbs

Eyes: Brown

Hair: Brown

It was hard for me to chose what varation to go for, Patience is my favourite, and I really like how simple Roslia's outfit is.
I'll possibley go for a cross-over, chosing the best bits. But I'm still trying to decide :/ Gorrrrrsh.

All done! just gotta make the Cloak and Spear, and come up with a way of properly attatching the armour.

Will most likely be remaking this :)

Hmm no stiffening.. It is holding its shape really neatly, esp the bottom hem line, looks great. :)

Shopping List

2mtrs Cherry Red Faux Leather (damn postage! ><)£17.00Bought


Cloak and Spear completely finished! (Posted 24th May 2012)


the strap on the cloak SUCKS. but I honestly don't care. I'll change it some other time. SO YEAH WOO.

the stupid cloak FINISHED. (Posted 23rd May 2012)

Got really pissed off in the end and just blitzed the sewing. it's botched up in many places, even managed to sew on the hood all wonky. OH YAH.
but f*** it. IT'LL DO. and I doubt anyone will notice anyway.... and people won't even get close to me anyway.... BECAUSE I WONT LET THEM >:O

yeah. bed plz.

speaaaaaaar (Posted 22nd May 2012)

that's all papier mache'd.

I don't think the gaps in the middle of the 'blade' is symmetrical.. :S We'll see once it's painted! lol

Spear head (Posted 21st May 2012)

using the good old carboard and papier mache method.
I'm seriously making this up as I go along, no idea what I'm doing xD
Wish I could've used wood or something, but just don't have the skills for woodcutting :/

Start of the spear (Posted 21st May 2012)

was going to get a curtain pole - which I think are around £30... but managed to find a garden cane for £1.88 xD GOOD OLD WILKINSONS!

so I've sprayed it black from the green colour it was. Next will be the spear head :)

the lining (Posted 19th May 2012)

just gotta sew it in properly. :)

Cloak (Posted 18th May 2012)

just needs a hood and lining. :)

If I decide to remake Maggie (which is a possibility) then I'll go for this! (Posted 30th April 2012)

I just LOVE that lace-up hip armour <3 wow!

Completed! :) (Posted 30th April 2012)

everything is from scratch other the the gloves, the chaps which are modified trousers, and the clutch bag is modified.

finished leg armour (Posted 28th April 2012)

it's totally crap. I wish it was neater but, oh well!

Finished belt (Posted 28th April 2012)

the painting was soooo hard D:

Belt, hand guards and leg armour (Posted 26th April 2012)

First time properly making some armour.
It's just 2mm craft foam, some glue and acrylic paint. I'm pretty skint D:
next will come the rivets and finding a way to attatch it to my leg :S hmm.....
oh and pardon the disgusting floor D:

nearly finished belt (Posted 22nd April 2012)

just gotta paint on the floral detail. though I'll do that once i've definitely finalized the pattern - i'm afraid I'll muck it up :/

also glued the middle D-ring in the wrong place, though that doesn't really matter. just used a coaster, some faux leather, craft foam, gold acrylic and 2 types of glue, with d-rings, a clip and somne studs.

Belt progress (Posted 20th April 2012)

I'm NOT happy with how that belt buckle looks. oh well, I've remade it 4 times - I can't be arsed to make it a 5th time lol

Just gotta attatch the d-rings to the buckle and make another strap. THEN it's painting on the floral detail - I'm bricking iiiit D:
also just realised I won't be able to weather it because I've already put glue on the buckle. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Lesson learned: DON'T RUSH THINGS.

belt buckle nearly complete! (Posted 19th April 2012)

it's just got a coat of glue drying over the top at the moment.
agh, again it's not 100% perfect =/ but I did my best with the materials I had.

I used a coaster with some red faux leather stuck onto. then I painted the cut out foam shapes and stuck them on. next is to just make sure it's got a good layer of glue and then maybe I'll try weathering it. though I don't know yet! gotta complete the 3 belt straps, attatch the d-rings to the buckle and set it up somehow. that probably makes absolutely no sense - I'll update with a pic which hopefully will! XD

Belt buckle patterns (Posted 19th April 2012)

I tried my hardest to make it all symmetrical, but it will never be perfect.

finished top! (Posted 17th April 2012)

just need to add a crucifix! :)

TOP! (Posted 17th April 2012)

Just need to correctly sew in the zip as it's only pinned.

then I'll add a crucifix on ze tities.

Top start (Posted 12th April 2012)

just the start, still need to hem over the sleeves, make the collar, add the back of it including a zip. and then attatch on a crucifix with lots of swirly gold detail.
it looks shit at the moment, I'm sure it'll look fine once it's completed but I'm quite pee'd off with how baaad I am with a sewing machine >.<

TEST PIECE (Posted 10th April 2012)

Testing out how I'd go about making the armour.
definitely learned a few things when making this, but it certainly looks good enough.
next test piece will be for the belt! still trying to finalize the design on the belt though, I'm desperate to not make it look tacky!

Gold on Red Test (Posted 7th March 2012)

Testing my metallic gold and bronze's on my red faux leather to decide what works!! not sure either do tbh :S will have to mix a gold that'll match the cording anyway! hmmmmmmmmm :s might buy something else to edge it with, what I don't know!! GAWD DAMMIT Red is so hard to work with! O_O

Fabrics (Posted 4th March 2012)

Gonna remake my cloak like an annoying little hoe and use AlienQueen's cloak pattern!
buying some nicer velvet (going for the cheap wasn't a good idea) with the same cheap satin for the inner, as that wasn't bad atall! :)
Gonna be expensive, BUT WORTH IT!

also got on there the Cherry Red faux leather for my belt :) I hope it looks good with gold!! :S

Magdalena - HairandMakeup test (Posted 10th January 2012)

hair and make-up test.
curled my long brown locks, slapped on some pretty red lippy and a pair of falsies, teamed with my sweet pea coat for effect ;) xD
had fun doing this edit. ^^ can't wait to do her now! :D
