Brienne
Game of Thrones

Cosplayer: Mighty Odango

Variant: S04E01 - Two Swords

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

7th July 2014: Mostly done! Monstered the tunic/smock/dress/whatever the hell that is on Sunday after being ill on Saturday, and actually managed to get it finished, plus setting the last eyelets in the doublet. It doesn't fit my mannequin as well as it does me! The belt is made from scratch but needs extending, Brienne's belt was clearly made from a gigantic cow because mine is already the full length of a hide I had in. I'm also doing the embroidered sigil for the front of the tunic/s/d/wthti because I want to practise embroidery, it's coming together much faster than I expected :3

1st July 2014: Printing Brienne's tunic/dress/whatever that is has a diamond pattern woven into the fabric. Obviously, I was hugely unlikely to find the same fabric, but I kind of wanted to get that texture in somehow, so I bought plain blue linen and am stamping a diamond pattern onto it.

23rd June 2014: Wig Although my own hair is the right length for Brienne, it's currently bright blue and I'm trying to grow it out a little, so when Arda Wigs had a sale I purchased one of their Cady lace fronts.

Here it is after cutting and some quick styling. I felt kind of bad that I'd bought this lovely thick wig and then spent an hour razor combing it to try and make it look a bit fine and stringy like Brienne's hair.

Apologies for the weird looking head, I was using my partner's head cast and he'd been sculpting and casting prosthetics with it!
