Costume Information

Because Monty Oum is my god <3

I had such a blast making and wearing this costume with my RWBY girls <3 Seriously I've never felt so connected and comfortable as a character than I do when I'm Ruby <3
And I had the best time i've had in cosplay since I started cosplaying with these wonderful girls!

Crescent Rose was made by the wonderful DarkShine and constructed thanks to the help of multiple people youknowwhoyouare<3 (Thankyou so so much T//T I can't wait to RWBY cosplay with you soon!)

Despite having lots of troubles on the day with contacts I had lots of fun and can't wait to wear her again with my girls! Hopefully with Crescent Rose 2.0

Belt scatter Rose sigil- WIP (Posted 7th August 2013)

This is my first time using Worbla so it's been interesting~ It's really fun to work with though!
I still need to attach some loops to the back to thread it through my belt.
I think I may have made this a tiny bit too big but I'm sure it'll be OK ._.'

Dress- WIP (Posted 7th August 2013)

The dress is almost done I just need to shorten and hem, then add all the ruffles to the sleeves and bottom~

Boots finished~ (Posted 30th May 2013)

Completed boots! They're a little taller than Ruby's design, but not by all that much. Making the ankle belts were a pain,as was the ruffle along the tops! (I had to sew separately onto the boot tongues to make the ruffle go all the way along the top)and I painted the red along the heel~
They're super comfortable though <3 cosplays with comfortable shoes are the best.

Cloak pins~ (Posted 27th March 2013)

Pins to secure the cloak to my shoulders, since in a number of refs she has no fastening (though in some refs her cloak just goes right over her head with no pins at all)
Made these by taking cross pendants and attaching them to brooch backs~

Cloak finished~ (Posted 27th March 2013)

Finished the cloak today~! It took 4 meters of fabric but i think it looks nicer with the extra fabric (more swish!)Ref images show the cloak being different lengths so I just went with mid calf length so I didn't trip over it whilst walking!
