Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt

Cosplayer: PandoraCaitiff

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

31st January 2011: Mostly done... The robe is now finished, but I'm putting-off doing the stole as its going to be a lot of fiddly hemming.

I've finished the beard, although I might reinforced the edges to prevent stretching and ripping.

And I've found a suitable book to modify. It's a Clive Cussler novel :)
Next step is to cut out the centre, and maybe affix a small purse to the inside cover.

16th January 2011: Progress on the robe After a false start (hooray for seam-rippers!) I'm making good progress on the main part. The sleeves are now the right length and the cuffs are double-hemmed; the collar is the right size and also double hemmed; and the sleeves and front/back are attached (currently making a large X with the hole for my head at the centre).

Next step is to shorten the front/back to the right length (I always over estimate seam allowance) and double hem. Then I'll just have to sew up the side and sleeve seams.

After that is hemming the stole, and attaching the red ribbon for the crosses.

I also need to sew the elastic onto my beard. It's safety pinned at the moment.

At the moment it's looking like the Sunday, but I don't really have my Saturday costume sorted, so I might be able to do Sat if there's a group or something

Thanks. It was loads of fun to be Garterbelt, although the afro was a nightmare in the high winds of May 2011. I think I only got two pics with my face in XD

Hmm. That reminds me - I need to replace the beard on this costume as it didn't survive Expo intact!

Thank you. It was lots of fun despite the idiots yelling "OMG! It's Jesus!" (seriously :roll: !)

I've been outdone though: There was a barechested, lingerie/machinegun/afro-ammo-store Garterbelt at May's expo who looked AMAZEBALLS!
