Lelouch (Art Book Emperor) - Code Geass


Amecon 2010


This is easily my most complex and expensive cosplay. It took a bit over month to do. A lot of that time was spent doing the embroidary.
The majority of the white matrial is Duchess Satin, only the undershirt is a cotton and the hat is a cheap version of the satin. The Blue matiral is crushed Velvet. The hat has a gold material for the pattern. The edges of the jacket and cloak is gold bias binding (which was wonderful to work with) while the patterns are embroidary. I swear I must have bought all the gold thread in Essex. Then red and green bead for the, well, beads.
I really wanted a long cloak for this that trialed on the ground, luckily I had enough material by the end. It was a pain for the weekend, but I'm glad I had it.

Just a quick thanks to a certain a couple of people. One made the frame for the hat, the other, well, I could have finished it on time without her, my knight of zero :D
Also a huge thanks to my mum. She helps me with all of my cosplays and without her I wouldn't even have had half the cosplay done on time. She puts so much of her own time into it helping me.

nice but why the big hat

Because that's the design :D I went with the artbook version, rather than the anime version. More detail to play with

I thought I'd commented on this! *facepalm* For shame! This is, in a word, astounding. I love the level of detail and construction skill. Amazing hun ^_^

This is really beautiful! I love the fabrics, rich but subtle, and the embroidery work is stunning. It's really neatly put together as well. You should be very proud.
