Costume Information

Description
Since I didn't do very comicy cosplays last years LFCC, I've decided to correct that XD so I was thinking which one to make and I decided Amazi-Girl was perfect. She's from a webcomic I read called Dumbing of Age, set at a university and exploring all kinds of life stuff. Amazi-Girl's story is pretty deep and quite sad, and I'm hoping I can do her justice!

Boots (and cape) (Posted 6th July 2014)

The boots! I cheated a tiny bit with these, and bought some base Ugg-style boots off Ebay. I used them to draw the pattern into the pleather used for the belt. Because I mucked up the toe piece so much, I ended up cutting the failed attempts so I could still use the leg halves - so the boot covers are in two pieces but you can't really tell unless you look up close XD

The extra details are upholstery foam covered in lycra, again. Because pleather hates hot glue I cut a hole so the foam is actually glued onto the base boot underneath |D

There are no photos of the cape in WIP - it's basically royal blue crepe (a different shade to the pleather and lycra annoyingly) cut into a cape shape and then hemmed using a combination of a hand rolled hem and a rolled hem machine foot (it was an interesting experience, using a rolled hem foot for the first time on a complex fabric like crepe....) The cape is then glued to the jumpsuit (should have probably hand sewn it but I was lazy...)

Belt WIP (Posted 6th July 2014)

Obviously this is now finished, but here's an WIP shot. I cut a length of royal blue pleather (non-stretch), and attached it to a belt clip buckle I got off Ebay. I created a fake buckle using upholstery foam covered in lycra (a method I used for any raised details on the gloves and boots etc) and glued it on. I then made the utility bag pockets using the same pleather. They're the same size as my 3DS so I can have that on my self for photos! Actually super lucky as Amazi-girl has a red 3DS and so do I...|D

The photo shows the base belt and the pockets in the pieces to be sewn together

Finished jumpsuit (Posted 6th July 2014)

Here's the jumpsuit before the cape was made and attached! The A is the same lycra as the gloves, sewn on using iron on-tear away stabiliser! It's such a great little trick that I will definitely use in the future with stretchy fabrics :D

Finished gloves (Posted 1st July 2014)

Finished these yesterday! The gloves were made from lycra, and the base was the lycra stretched over upholstery foam that was cut and glued into shape. It's not the neatest of jobs >_< but it will do! I really should have made the gloves from leather but I couldn't stomach making non stretchy gloves XDD;;;

Finished mask (Posted 1st July 2014)

It was finished ages ago but only got round to putting photo up XD

This was made by having a base mask which was a cheap fabricy mask off ebay, then I trimmed it into the shape I wanted before covering it with lycra, which was then stuck down with hot glue. It works perfectly!

Material bought (Posted 16th May 2014)

I got paid yesterday so I've gone ahead and bought all my material XDD only thing is I'm using different materials for the blue bits (faux leather for the belt and boot covers, lycra for the eye mask, gloves and A, and crepe for the cape) so inb4 they're all radically different shades of royal blue hahahahah.....

I've bought a cheap eye mask off ebay to cover with lycra, this will help it form nicely on my face instead of relying on the stretch :)

Wig done (Posted 29th April 2014)

I bought two wigs from a Chinese seller on Ebay, and wefted them together! (I'm glad I did buy two as I definitely got what I paid for, they were a bit thin OTL)

The colour is a bit off but it was so hard to find the exact colour :(
