Costume Information

Cost : Over £100
Time Taken : Over a month

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.


Hello old chum! :D You got some really good pictures of this - I'm so glad, it's awesome!

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.
