Jack of Blades (Female) - Fable: The Lost Chapters


I chose to make this costume as I'd long wanted to cosplay this amazing game villain ever since playing the original Fable about 5 years ago. He's just one of the most memorable villains I've ever encountered in a game series and needs commemorating/showing some serious love!

This was the first cosplay costume I'd ever set out to make, and the only things that were not made entirely from scratch were the sword, leggings, the gloves and the boots, all of which I re-painted/customised, and I also bought black plain masks as the bases for the Court of Blades masks.

The most difficult part of making this outfit was probably both the sewing (which I needed help with) and trial and erroring with paint/PVA. I was pretty devastated when the paintwork on the boots chipped off in chunks shortly before con when I tested walking around in them. Luckily I managed to put together some panels made from laminated paper and pin them onto the boots.

I also noticed when I got extremely warm walking around, the heat made my gloves which were coated in PVA, adhere to my sword and stick to it!! Made walking about on the day very stressful because of the temperamental nature of the PVA. Eek. I learned very importantly to make separate attachable panels for armoured boots, and use a different sealant/better paint to avoid these issues again. Other than that I was extremely happy with how the garments and masks turned out. I wouldn't say creating the masks was easy, but I certainly enjoyed creating them the most.

When I finally wore Jack it was pretty amazing to be him, a lot of people really liked the paint work and it was so great to have people recognise his character. I am definitely going to remake his gloves and boots in the future.

I wasn't familiar with the character but the paintwork was really something special and made this costume stand out.

This costume is amazing :D I love all the cartoony shading you've got all over the costume, makes me want to dig out my copy of Fable 1 and play it again XD
