Elizabeth (Corset) - Bioshock Infinite


Minamicon 21

Damn That's A Sexy Corset award - Minamicon 21


I've loved this costume of Elizabeth's since I first saw the artwork, and I loved her so much as a character that I thought I'd love to cosplay this version of her. A big part of the appeal may have been the fact that I learned how to make Victorian-style corsets a couple of years ago and this gave me the opportunity to try out my new skills!

The bolero was slightly modified from Simplicity pattern 2442 - I redrafted the pattern so I could have a velvet facing around the opening instead of just lining, I lengthened the sleeves slightly and added the cuffs. The skirt was a lengthened version of Simplicity 1560. I made the corset using the pattern my corsetry teacher gave me!

With the exception of thinking I should buy a wig instead of using my real hair, this costume is unusual for me in the sense that there is nothing in it that needs fixing or finishing off. And it's the first costume I've made that I've won a solo prize for! Yay! :D

Lovely shaping on the corset! You've done a great job. I haven't made a curved bust yet, so will have a few questions for you soon :)

I loved your Elizabeth :) It's just a shame that we never got any photos together!
