High Inquisitor Darklaw - Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

Status :Complete
Worn At :MCM Birmingham Comic Con 2016








Made as part of a college course! Unfortunately I'm not gonna have the gauntlets for the first two wears but I'm gonna make them and then do a photoshoot maybe?

[honestly my experience at March MCM with this costume gave me one hell of a confidence crash, but I'm hoping Kita will go better :3]
[post-Kita update: it was too hot and uncomfortable so I didn't wear it for long]

Omg this looks brilliant so far and can't wait to see this finished! Darklaw is one of my favourite characters from the crossover and if I cosplayed anyone it would be her or Ridelle :) I think she'll really suit you!!!!

Okay I know I keep commenting but I am fangirling so hard right now you actually look incredible and if that is really unfinished then I am so excited to see the finished cosplay! You have great talent and can wear this so well!

Progress Journal

Cape complete! (Posted 10th March 2016)

Further cape progress! (Posted 1st February 2016)

THIS IS TAKING FOREVER AND IT'S REALLY TEDIOUS but I have to do it so it's getting done

Cape in progress! (Posted 16th January 2016)

I was kinda scared to mess it up because it's made of velvet and that's expensive stuff but I've FINALLY started working on the decorations for the cape.

Horns attached! (Posted 28th June 2015)

I'm gonna need to use bigger pins but for the moment here they are. The rest of the wig needs redoing because I messed it all up trying to get these things to sit right.

Nearly complete :D (Posted 6th June 2015)

Ok, that's a lie, there's still LOADS to do but the point is that this is all the sewing I need to do on this costume for my college course!
