Description
I have already fallen in love with Aurora's design after weeks upon weeks of watching the videos leading up the release of the game (I ordered the deluxe version!) - so I just have to cosplay her!

Making the dress was fairly simple, I need to make wings, a crown and a sword in addition.

***Completed the first version of her you meet for MCM ComicCon London in May 2014 on the Sunday only ***

Wings and sword will be made another time!

About the game and character:

Child of Light centers around Aurora, a girl from 1895 Austria who contracts a physical ailment that causes her to fall asleep. Upon waking up, Aurora finds herself in the mythical world of Lemuria which has had its sun, moon and stars stolen by the Black Queen. Aurora is tasked with recovering the celestial bodies and ultimately reuniting with her father, who is a duke. Helped by her playable companion Igniculus the firefly and several unlikely allies, Aurora will face her darkest fears in this modern take on a coming-of-age story.

It is truly stunning! x

Thanks hun! The game is so special I adore it! I'm doing the version of Aurora at the start of the game - because I now only have a week I'm gana try and get the wings done but I will need to make the sword another time I think! I really need longer on this project xD the detailing will be time consuming

Journal

Debut was awesome! (Posted 26th May 2014)

I had so much fun at MCM Comic Con on Sunday! :D Managed to get some lovely photos (I will upload nice ones as I get to them)

I do plan on making the wings and sword for a woodland photoshoot a some point ;) x

Thank you everyone who recognised my character, made compliments and took my photo :)

Awaken Child of Light! (Posted 24th May 2014)

Okay so I managed to get the first version of Aurora complete! Yay!!! Wearing for MCM Comic Con tomorrow (Sunday) - sword and wings will be made for another time.

All the dress painting took all day and the wig fringe just needed styling - I am very pleased with it!

And currently fan girling over the fact the writer and the lead developer for the game just favoured a picture of my cosplay on twitter!!!

Squeeeeee!!!

One day... (Posted 24th May 2014)

Artwork red wine wig decided to arrive today! So it's a dash to finish the dress or 'awakened' Aurora (before wings and sword)

I will add wings and sword when I have more time but expo is tomorrow!

Trim complete! (Posted 22nd May 2014)

So I pinned the trim of the dress and two trims around the sleeves (centre of the sleeve ribbon to be fabric painted)
Took all night but the ribbon is all on so it's ready to paint!

There are markings to paint near the base and the sleeves need filling in as well as the neckline

Gloves (Posted 20th May 2014)

Gloves arrived and they are perfect!

Still waiting on my wig (dammit) and working on the dress

Crown 4 - complete (Posted 18th May 2014)

Finished with paint and detailing :)

Light! (Posted 18th May 2014)

One more thing completed

Crown 3 (Posted 18th May 2014)

Using poly filler to smooth things down :)

Crown 2 (Posted 17th May 2014)

So the crown is made from using a round corrugated card box - cutting it to fit my head, then marking out the points evenly then cutting them out - here's picture 2
It's ready for paper mâché then painting now!

Sleeves (Posted 17th May 2014)

So the sleeves have been cut to size, I need to add two trims of gold ribbon and paint in between those with gold and add light detail. The hem of the dress will have a large gold ribbon too.

Crown 1 (Posted 17th May 2014)

So the crown is made from using a round corrugated card box - cutting it to fit my head, then marking out the points evenly then cutting them out - here's picture 1 :)

Such wonderful art, lets make a start! (Posted 16th May 2014)

So my gloves arrived but they are not quite right so I have ordered some more as a replacement. The wig has yet to arrive so without this its not 100% whether I will cosplay as Aurora at the upcoming MCM Comic Con in London on the Sunday. Regardless I will be working on the outfit itself this weekend and hope to have it completed. I will also be working on the crown.

The sword and wings I may be leaving for a later date when I have more time!

Gloves (Posted 4th May 2014)

Bought cream long gloves off amazon now! :3

Dress sorted to alter (Posted 3rd May 2014)

Found the skater dress I want to alter :)

Next is gloves, building crown and sword

Commence the project! (Posted 25th April 2014)

Officially started this project! I have purchased the wig which I hope will come fairly quickly – perhaps mid May. The crown will be simple to do I just need to pick up the materials from Hobbycraft. The dress itself I will need to work out and the wings I am currently looking into as well.

The game comes out next week and I am super excited!
