Costume Information

Description
OK i decided I wanted a challenge, and I have to admit I really, totally and completely fell in love with the Scissors Crown artwork that Thores Shibamoto produced. It's so amazing. I really love Claus' costume design, so I am going to give it a shot. This will definitely be step-up challenge for me, but I want to give it a go! Hopefully I can learn some new skills, especially making the prop XD;
I wore this to MCM Expo, with the giant scissors as a prop. I then decided to re-wear it for Ayacon, and wanted to make a new prop, so I made the puppeteer mistress for Ayacon xD
I love wearing Claus so much!! ^^;

YES!!!!! Someone else making Scissors Crown costumes :DDDDD This makes me so happy. I'm also looking into doing a Scissors Crown costumes (possibly Claus as well, maybe white dress Alice) with a friend.

Shame I'm not sure I can make May Expo. Are you planning on wearing Claus again?

Thank you so much for your lovely comments everyone!
And hey Sephirayne :) if you do Alice, I would actually die with happiness, I really *really* would love an Alice cosplayer to get photos with! I am sure I would probably be able to take it to October expo as well! Thanks for your lovely comments! <3

You're welcome. Yes, I am considering Alice as I might be able to use the wig for another costume would be awesome. I'm hoping to make Oct Expo so I would be up for doing Alice if I can get there.

Journal

Scissors Prop (Posted 30th May 2013)

This was my prop progress. The scissors were made using light MDF wood,, cut out and then strengthened with coats of primer. The 3D details were doing with a mixture of Worbla and fimo clay.

Jacket Progress :) (Posted 28th May 2013)

Progress of the body jacket!

Selfie (Posted 28th May 2013)

Just me doing a wig & hat selfie! XD

More Hat Progress! (Posted 28th May 2013)

More hat progress; here I was just gluing the decorations on, around the hat rim :)

hat progress ^_^ (Posted 28th May 2013)

This was the start of the hat - made from craft foam, cardboard for the base, covered in fabric and then the piece which goes around is made from black leather, and decorated with 3d paint and gems.

My pretty dress ;) (Posted 28th May 2013)

Man-skirt progress pics. Was made with my heavy duty shiny blue material (which was actually dim-out curtain material <3!) And hemmed with lilac cotton.

Fimo jewellery (Posted 28th May 2013)

Just another photo of my Fimo clay pieces, all hand-made. And then either baked in the oven, or heated with a hot-air gun! And then the beads glued in :)

needle & sheath w.i.p. (Posted 13th January 2013)

regrettably, I haven't really taken (m)any photos of the needle and it's sheath in progress. however, this is the origins/starter of them both. as you can kinda make out in the photo, the long black needle/sword shaped thing is... well.. the needle :) it is made from wood, which has been sanded to make it more swordly-shaped. the sheath was made from Worbla.. as you can see in the photo, that was a rough mock-up of the shaping. shit loads of heat gunning later, and i now have a sheath. i didn't really take any progress photos of it, apart from this.. but the sheath is all done now :) and my fingers have lots of nice lovely heat blisters....

fimo fun (Posted 13th January 2013)

A lot of the pieces for this costume have been made from fimo clay, moulded and shaped and then baked in the oven, with jewels and bead added to them :) as pictured, is my progress of the pieces for the belts - crafting them from the fimo ^^
