Warden and Shepard



Costume Information

Okay so I came to the conclusion that I am no way ready to cosplay Isabela and I wouldnt have time to make her. So I decided to do my Cousland Grey Warden. This is also because Phee is hoping to get Morrigan completed so then in our group there will be 2 DA1 characters and 2 DA2 characters.

What's annoying is that I used to have this character up as Arianna Cousland and then I took her down because I didn't think I'd do her =[ baww.

Oh well! This will be a very quick way of doing it as I've literally got just under a month to get 3 cosplays done (Good thinking emma! *hitself*)

I debated about doing a DA character for ages but coz I'm replaying the first one my old obsession is returning and I'm dying to do it.

So this is a human noble/female rogue.

Overall very happy with how this turned out :D I wish the corset matched the skirt a bit better but you can have lots of mismatched armour when scavenging it off of corpses ;D I ended up not wearing the bracers as I thought the fingerless gloves suited better. I sewed on two elastic loops to the corset so my swords could slide in and rest on my back like they do on the game. By the end of the day I was a pro at bring them out and sliding them in the loops. Waiting for some awesome pictures!

Shopping List

Short Sword£6.75Bought
Long Sword£7.80Bought
Brown Faux Leatherette x1 mtr£7.75Bought
Dark Gold Leatherette x2 Mtr £13.45Bought


Choker (Posted 12th November 2012)

Just a simple velvet choker.

Skirt WIP 2 (Posted 21st October 2012)

I need to paint on silver detail to the lamellar. I havent done this too the back as it took me a very long time to do (mainly coz of sewing machine fecking up and having to do it by hand. If I have time this week I'll do the back but I dont think it's too much of a big deal if I don't manage it.

Gloves (Posted 20th October 2012)

A pair of brown, leather gloves, I cut the fingers off :)

Skirt WIP (Posted 20th October 2012)

Skirt so far. Just made from dark brown leatherette. Made all this morning so far xD The split it a bit bigger because I'm stupid and dont take into account that when I wear it it'll split wider. So when I add the lamellar onto the panel I'm going to make them over lap a little bit to hide my dignity xD

Corset (Posted 30th September 2012)

To save time and frustration of making armour again *has flash backs of Hawke* I decided to buy this brown corset. As it has the buckles at the front I think it looks quite good and detailed. I can then focus on making a skirt and the accessories. Plus I feel more confident in a corset as they pull my stomach in which makes me feel a bit better about myself xD
