Anna Valerious
Van Helsing

Cosplayer: FairyPorchQueen

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

Showcased 5th June 2011

15th October 2010: Buckles WIP SOOOOO i realised i dont really post much progress even though i take lots of pics as i go along. These are the buckles that go up the side of Annas boots. Its tedious and boring to do. They are made from craftfoam, covered in an old faux suede cussion cover, and 31mm brass curtainrings to look like the buckle bit. They look shit and are rushed, but hopefully noone will even notice tbh.

8th October 2010: OMG YES! finally my bead tops came!! happy fairy ^__^

4th October 2010: Jacket lining .......well sort of. This is the start it looks much better now its finished. Its all hand drawn with a sharpie...the material was the red colour, im such a cheapskate lol

2nd September 2010: Progress. Corset progress!

30th August 2010: Wow... So work on this is happening alot quicker than i thought. But hopefully ill be able to post pics soon, its hard finding the right light so that you can see the colour of the velvet. Pics soooooon!

28th August 2010: ok... so im actually starting work on this properly now!!! ABOUT TIME I DID!

16th June 2010: Starting. Ok so so far i have some boots that im going to modify, got some velvet! Leggins will be easy enough to find, might use horse riders ones as they are more durable. And have a wig that i want to use, just bidding on it atm. That blouse is going to be a bitch! Got a corset ill be dyeing a modifying too :)

Uncanny. It honestly is difficult to tell the difference between the reference and the pictures of you - it's only the backgrounds that give it away!

Sephirayne avatar

I agree with Odangochan. It shows the signs of a great costume if we need to take a sec to work out which pics are you.

Amazing job. I love the blouse. The whole costume is going to be so perfect and you really look like her. ;)
