Description
Why I made this costume: For a while I was looking for a costume that was going to be challenging for me and also something that really attracted me. I love the design of the costume, and the sword looks so cool! I always wanted to cosplay as a knight anyways. I decided to pick Shidou out of the other girls because of her desire to need to prove herself. She seemed like the most fitting for me. When I get a chance i’ll have to play the game.

About this costume: Getting the fit just right for the shirt was a challenge. It probably took me the longest, I wanted it to be perfect. I drafted all my own patterns for everything, and it took a lot of calculating and time. The gold is hand painted on my bottom and neck piece of the costume. All the lace is hand stenciled on the slip and around the edges of the top. The skirt took a lot of measurements to get the lines to match up just right, and be at the edge of every pleat. I used boning for the corset front piece, and tied in the ribbon using hooks. I did some leather work with the belt and connected it to 2 straps that screw into the sword. The sword, sheath, and hilt were made with a variety of materials consisting of plastic, wood, and sculpey.
