Mrs Lovett - Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007 movie)


London MCM Expo May 2008

Milton Keynes Collectormania 13 After-Party Costume Contest - 1st Place


This is one of my most favourite costumes to do, by farrr~

I chose to cosplay Mrs Lovett simply because I absolutely adore her! Not only that, but I'm completely besotted with Tim Burton's version of the movie.

The hardest part was most likely the bask. That was hand-stitched, and the feathers had to be glued on at the end. The material was too thick where we'd created the 'bones', so it was hand-stitching all the way~

The easiest part was actually the skirt, I think. The ruffles were quite easy to create, and the material was a delight to work with. The worst bit about it was trying to figure out how to make it stay up! (We decided on braces in the end... it was very heavy!)

I learned from this that Fimo clay is <3
I made the pies from half of a tin can, and fashioned the Fimo around it. They ended up looking pretty cool! A lot people like my pies. They're a celebrity trap too ;D

I absolutely love wearing this costume, mainly because I get so many compliments for it. It's so nice to know that people appreciate all the hard work and love that went into this ^^
It's also been great because I got to meet some neat people through wearing it! Such as my adopted Sweeney, Jack =3

'It's priest. Have a little priest.' Completely brilliant cosplay, you pull her off so well! Like the pie too, who's in that one? ;D

Not only is your costume amazing, you've got a bit of Helena Bonham Carter in your face shape and such, this really is perfect!
