Adrian Andrews - Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations



It's difficult to say how cosplay can occur accidentally, but this costume began that way as an unintentional adaptation of my Riza costume. I was already wearing a high-collared black top, a wig in the same style, so by putting on glasses I basically had an instant Adrian outfit. It was suggested I should cosplay her, so I made the costume properly (not that it required much effort). It was also cheap since all I bought was a belt to alter, a zip for the top and the notebook.

The top is spare black polyester twill fabric, made with accurate seams and darts and a low back (I went by JFA assuming the style of her top was the same in both games). There's a zip down the back, and the collar fastens with velcro. The belt is patent leatherette with a craft foam buckle. Since everything's black, I used a few different textures for slight contrast. I couldn't find any artwork of Adrian, other than concept art, so besides the numerous sprites showing her from the waist up, there's two black and white snapshots of her full outfit in T&T. Guessing by those, I assumed she had black trousers and shoes.

The glasses are my own pair, and the wig is my Riza wig left styled pretty much as it already was. I covered a cheap notebook in orange fabric (since it was all I had to hand!) and also made a version I could scrunch up like she does, which consists of envelopes, the same fabric taped round them and an elastic band. Really.

Since it'll probably be more recognisable, I want to make her Justice for All outfit too. It'll just be the same thing again in different colours and using a different wig, and would make the Shelly de Killer card a bit more of an appropriate prop!

The proverbial hawtness. The location is absolutely perfect too XD How on earth did you manage to find it?

Thanks everyone! Glad something so quick and simple is still appreciated. The location was pure luck! Well, the museum was a pretty obvious choice for photos, but there just happened to be an empty exhibition area with delivery boxes and stuff. It was cordoned off, which you can see in the photos, but there was nothing stopping us from using it as a backdrop so long as we stayed outside it.

Great Adrian, this is the first time I've seen a cosplay of her and it's spot on, of course it's going to be appreciated!
