Garterbelt - Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt




Panty and Stocking is my new favourite anime series, and I really wanted to cosplay from it. My GF wants to be Stocking, but however much I want to dress as Panty, I don't have the body confidence. However I'm exactly the right build for Garterbelt, and he is a hilarious character (and means I get to shout and be grouchy in character!)

The robe is based on a pattern I have for a peasant shirt, and I will be wearing a regular shirt backwards under it to get the dogcollar. The beard is made of felt, and I bought an over-sized afro from a local fancy dress shop.

Currently the pieces are all cut out, and I have some red ribbon to make the cross on the stole (priest's scarf). I just need to start sewing. I think I will sew the stole just at the shoulders to keep it in place, but allow it to flap about in the wind.

Overall its pretty straightforward. The hardest part was working out how to do the collar, but I solves that by making newspaper mock-ups long before I even bought material.

There's a small group of P&S cosplayers going to be at the May Expo. It should be fun!

At the moment it's looking like the Sunday, but I don't really have my Saturday costume sorted, so I might be able to do Sat if there's a group or something

Thanks. It was loads of fun to be Garterbelt, although the afro was a nightmare in the high winds of May 2011. I think I only got two pics with my face in XD

Cheers! :) Hmm. That reminds me - I need to replace the beard on this costume as it didn't survive Expo intact!

Of all the P&SG cosplay I've seen I havn't ever come across anyone doing this! Looks great!

Thank you. It was lots of fun despite the idiots yelling "OMG! It's Jesus!" (seriously :roll: !) I've been outdone though: There was a barechested, lingerie/machinegun/afro-ammo-store Garterbelt at May's expo who looked AMAZEBALLS!

Progress Journal

31st January 2011

Mostly done...

The robe is now finished, but I'm putting-off doing the stole as its going to be a lot of fiddly hemming.

I've finished the beard, although I might reinforced the edges to prevent stretching and ripping.

And I've found a suitable book to modify. It's a Clive Cussler novel :)
Next step is to cut out the centre, and maybe affix a small purse to the inside cover.

Progress on the robe

After a false start (hooray for seam-rippers!) I&#039;m making good progress on the main part. The sleeves are now the right length and the cuffs are double-hemmed; the collar is the right size and also double hemmed; and the sleeves and front/back are attached (currently making a large X with the hole for my head at the centre).

Next step is to shorten the front/back to the right length (I always over estimate seam allowance) and double hem. Then I&#039;ll just have to sew up the side and sleeve seams.

After that is hemming the stole, and attaching the red ribbon for the crosses.

I also need to sew the elastic onto my beard. It&#039;s safety pinned at the moment.
