Costume Information

Cost : 245.73
Time Taken : About 3 weeks-ish, not sure, been working on it on and off

Dat hair, dat trident. This was to go with Zomboi's Grand Highblood, but ended up not cosplaying on the Sunday of Ame '12 because I was very ill and couldn't face it. I am making some improvements to the wig (putting fishies in it) and replacing the shoes as they were a last minute "these'll do" last year.

Possibly for Auchinawa 2014.

EDIT: OMG! Officially my most expensive cosplay EVAR!(TM) so much bling... :{

Illustration (Posted 15th August 2014)

Kind of trying to pull together all the inspiration into one drawing. It tells me what I'm doing, even if nobody else understands it. lol.

Dair Hair Inspiration (Posted 15th August 2014)

Dat Hair. I want to try an convey the idea that her hair eats everything in its path, hence why I'm putting fishies in it. I also want to make it part wig, part dreads because i think it looks more sea-life-like and also more "alive" that way.

Horns Refs (Posted 15th August 2014)

I believe her horns are those of some sort of gazelle, so I'm going to make them ridged this time instead of flat and cartoony as before.

Shellphone Screen Graphic (Posted 14th August 2014)

Whipped this baby up in photoshop in like 10mins.

Shellphone Refs. (Posted 14th August 2014)

I have gotten my grubby little mitts on a Playmobil mermaid set with a clamshell in it to make into a Shellphone. As the Condesce is actually Nikki Minaji, I am going to bling it all to heck seeing as I have bought ALL THE RHINESTONES to make the Dame Edna goggles EVEN MOAR fabulous, make the arm bling even blingy-er, make the hair fishies all shiny and fishscale-y and possibly jazz up my new shoes. Tbh, we might end up with a wee case of RHINESTONES EVERYWHERE if I'm not reigned in by someone... I MAAAAAAYYYYY have bought £30 worth of nail art jems because I was feeling sad and it made me happy to look at the shiny-shinies... WHOOPS! WM ;P

Ref. (Posted 12th August 2014)

So, although the costume was finished back in 2012, I never wore it. So, 2 years later I'll dig it out, purchase a few new bits and bobs and then I've got to alter it a bit and replace things that have been broken in transit/storage.

Leggings base (Posted 2nd August 2012)

That's right, I'm a nutter and decided to make leggings instead of buying them. lol. I've got some health issues which mean wearing a full-on bodysuit that you can't get in and out of easily (dat wig will hamper my ability to move much) isn't a great plan right now, so I made leggings and a top (was originally a body, but the lines line up better on a top).

Goggles & Crown (Posted 2nd August 2012)

I wonder if Dame Edna's noticed I've nicked her specs yet...?

Ears... (Posted 2nd August 2012)

Base shoes (Posted 2nd August 2012)
