|I've been wanting to do this duo forever, so glad I finally got to. I did this as one of the parade/interview costumes for World Cosplay Summit with Lex.|
My main focus before beginning these costumes was to get the proportions correct so I spent a while designing and laying out everything, eg. I wanted the keep the tabards short and our short length as high as possible to keep as much leg length.
Another big thing for me when making these costumes was that we both matched identically, so I patterned both of our tabards and sent lex about a million measurements for all the stupid bits of trim, and figured out the construction method for them to keep their rather tent like shape. I made all our jewellery bits as well which are mostly super sculpey and a few sourced pieces I found. That hat is constructed with plastazote and covered in lycra.
I also back combed the hell out of both of our wigs to give them that ridiculous volume!
Think this is my new favourite costume
