|Cost :||Oh god, £200 ish?|
|Time Taken :||60+ hours?|
|The base robe and cape was bought I must admit (I was too busy to make up the entire thing myself!) but the stole/scarf, all the accessories, arrow clips, dog collar, rosaries, armour, armband, ear cuff/spectacle chain, gloves, extra hemming, eyelets etc. etc. was made or customised by me. Fixings are mostly Fimo, but the shoulder guard was hammered out of copper. Belts, combat boots, and replica gun were very cleverly sourced from various locations, ohohoho. The hair is my own, it's actually bum length XD but sprayed silver.|
I hadn't cosplayed in seven years, so this really was such a buzz for me. I think I may just get back into again.... so long as I have the spare time to work on such finicky outfits XD
I chose Abel because I'm pretty tall for a girl, my hairstyle can be styled the same, I actually wear earcuff/spectacle chains almost all the time, and I have a pair of rounded gold rimmed glasses with the kink in middle... it would have been a crime not to!
I learnt a lot from this cosplay, as I hadn't really done anything on this scale before T_T;; It was also quite fragile, I need to strengthen it a little before I take it out to the next couple of events.
