Did you know her name is pronounced "Key-Stess" as opposed to "Qwis-tis". Now you know!

I had such a time looking for other people who've cosplayed her. Hardly anyone has, and if they have I found I didn't really gain any insight on how to make my own cosplay of her. Most of the cosplay photos I found were also very old.

I decided to make some adjustments to her 'pants'. In the artwork she clearly wears her skirt over some slacks, which looks fine in game. Unfortunately it looks more like this IRL:

The 90's and very early 2000's were both a cursed and blessed time. Instead of the pant/skirt combo, I decided thigh-highs and some cute ankle boots would modernize the costume and keep me from looking like Ashley over here:

Materials

  • Black Stretch Pleather
  • Stretchy Orange/Peach/Pink/Rust fabric for the top and skirt
  • Grey pleather
  • Brown Pleather
  • One big belt buckle
  • Silver chains (I used about 1 m)
  • Silver beads for belt details
  • Grey bias tape
  • Dark Red stretch pleather
  • Brads or studs
  • Whip (I got mine on amazon)
  • Either a 3D printed spike or a foam one
  • Craft foam and contact cement

Leggings and Gloves

Both of these were made from black stretch pleather. I measured the top and bottom of my legs and cut out a rectangle with those measurements. I sewed up the sides and pinned the tube on my leg so it was snug. I took off the legging and sewed where I pinned. Just keep doing this until they fit the way you want them too. I didn't make them socks because I was lazy.

I used the same method I always use for gloves: Tracing my hand and sewing. I added cuffs on the gloves too, so that they would cover my shirt sleeve things. If you're really feeling fancy you can use two different textured stretch pleathers for the gloves. Which is what I like to do.

Skirt

I started by tracing one of my own skirts that fit almost exactly like I wanted Quistis's to fit on to some mock-up fabric. I sewed up my mock up and tried it on to make sure it fit and had the correct length. Once that was done, I marked out the panels, numbered them and cut them out.

I laid them out on my good fabric and pinned and cut everything out. Then I sewed everything together. It takes a while to sew up each panel.

Once everything was sewn, I tried it on, and checked the fit. Once it fit well I sewed my seams down with a darker thread to sort of make pinstripes? Hope that makes sense.

Once that was done, I added a waist band and made a slit in the back for ease of movement.

Top

I first made a custom pattern using my dressform. Just wrap it in plastic and mark where you need to cut. I recommend only cutting 3 pieces and making a mock up first.

Once my mock up was made and I was happy with it, I numbered and cut out the panels. Then I cut everything out on my good fabric and sewed the top together. Once I was happy with the fit, i did all the pinstripe seams. Make sure you're 100% happy with how the top fits at this stage because going back to take it in more is harder later on.

The last thing to do on this portion of the top was to bias the edges and add the zipper.

The next step was making the sleeves. I made these exactly like the leggings. Making a tube and pining and sewing until it was right. The little shoulder pieces are just straps of the same pleather. I added metal studs as well.

Belts

I create belts one of two ways. The first way is to sew the belt together, good sides facing in, and flip it inside out by cutting down the back. I then sew the edges down and weather with paint.

The second way is to wrap a strip of foam with fabric. I used contact cement to glue the fabric down.

I used the first method for the grey belt. I used embroidery thread and beads to make the dangly bits on it. I also created a loop on the brown belt that attaches it to the grey one so it sits properly.

The chains on either sides are attached to the grey belt by stitching down with embroidery thread.

The brown belt was made by the second method.

Whip

I was gifted the whip from my amazon wish list, so you could go and buy something similar.

I trimmed all the pleather off the tip and 3D printed the pointy part of a Kunai to attach. I used contact cement to wrap the pleather strip around the stem of the Kunai.

The handle was wrapped with craft foam, and craft foam was used to make the raised details. The foam was primed with modge podge and painted with regular acrylic paints. The diamond pattern was painted on with pleather paint.


Wig

I got my wig from Arda Canada. I also purchased the hair clip from Walmart? I think?

Anyways, I sectioned the bangs off and put the remaining hair in a low pony tail. I used heat to shape the bags how I wanted and just clipped the rest of the hair in place.

My only complaint is that the wig is very heavy and I should have sewn in a few more clips to secure it on my head.


And that's how I made my Quistis cosplay! I hope this helps and that you learned something cool!

Craft Blog: Updating and Upgrading Old Cosplays 2019-09-11T17:00:03+00:00close

This is a bit different than the usual craft blog. I wanted to talk about how and why I re-make or update older cosplays.

Why Update?

I'll often update a cosplay if I a) love the character and b) feel that I could improve the costume significantly. I've updated most of my Final Fantasy cosplays because I love FF to death and really want to do the characters justice. Many updates I've done really show my growth and improvement as a cosplayer too, which is important to me.

Another reason is money. Its much cheaper to update an older cosplay than build one from scratch.

Modify/Improve Existing Parts

First things first, I look at what I could keep on the cosplay, or what I needed to change very little of.

For Rinoa I kept the undershirt, the same wig, and the Shooting Star. Those three things needed very minor adjustments. The wig was just re-cut and styled. I also added a few more streaks. The weapon got a new base and buckles so it clips to my arm.


For Selphie, I kept the boots and Nunchaku. The boots were just weathered, and the nunchaku got more details and a new chain.

The rest of the parts I either threw out completely or used them for patterns.

Re-Purposing Costume Parts

Instead of making new patterns for your update, just use your old ones. I did this for Rinoa's duster and arm warmers. The only changes I made were to add only dart seams at my waist on the duster (so that there are no seams seen on the underside of the duster) and I doubled layered my new arm warmers.

I also did this for Selphie's dress. I cut out the dress panels, making them longer on both the top and bottom. I also used a stretch fabric for her new dress, instead of the cotton non-stretch I used before. Using the old dress as a guide I sewed up my new one, even doing similar seams.


Making Brand New

Anything that was too poorly made or just looked wrong period is usually trashed.

I threw out my old Rinoa arm ribbon and shorts, and made new ones (although my shorts need another revision.. they are a little too tight and I don't like the bias tape zipper).


Selphie's wig was all wrong, so I used my old Shanalotte wig and styled it. At first I couldn't get the flip quite right. I ended up leaving it and trying again the next day. I teased the areas I wanted to flip out and used tones of hairspray and heat to shape the flips.

They sort of stay in place, but this is a wig that I have to really style before each wear.

I also redid her blue ribbon armband.

Ya fav spunky Final Fantasy girl! Well, she's my favorite spunky girl...

I've wanted to do Rikku for a while now, since I had done Yuna in the past. Out of all the FFX-2 girls I felt I suited Rikku best. Overall this cosplay was fairly simple, and I was lucky to find a swimsuit to modify which saved me a lot of time.

The most difficult part was probably the 'shoes'. I had to make sock-like things which was sort of annoying.

Read on if you'd like to see how I made this cosplay!

Photo: https://www.instagram.com/thekaigan/

Materials

  • Wig, small ponytail clip and extra wefts (I get mine from Arda)
  • Fimo Clay (non bake is best)
  • Feathers in orange and yellow
  • Thin wire
  • Earring hooks
  • Super Glue
  • Blue stretch fabric
  • Off-white stretch fabric
  • 100% Cotton for the scarf
  • Yellow Bikini top
  • Orange Bias Tape
  • Orange rope/string
  • Eyelets
  • Yellow fabric for the belt
  • Flat white shoes
  • Black Pleather
  • Green Stretch Fabric
  • Wooden Dowels
  • Brown stretch Suede
  • Brow Stretch Pleather

Wig

The wig wasn't to difficult. I bought a ponytail wig from Arda that came with 1 long pony tail clip. I bought a second small pony tail clip as well. I had some extra wig in the same color from an older cosplay that I used to harvest hair for all the braids.

The first thing I did was make a total of 7 Braids:

  • 2 short ones for the bottom of the wig
  • 2 long ones for the top that dangle down to my collar bone
  • 3 long thinner braids to make the 3 loops that sit on the top of my head

I used hot glue to secure the ends, I also hot glued the long skinny braids so they formed figure 8s.


Before attaching any of the braids, I made beads from fimo clay. I sculpted them around the braids and once I was happy with them I dunked them in boiling water for a few minutes to cure them. Be careful not to get the glued ends in the boiling water, or it will be a mess.

I then glued the 2 small braids to the wig near the nape of the neck. For the pony tails, I crimped parts of the long pony and cut it to the desired length. The short one was teased and spiked a bit.

I also trimmed the bangs of the wig.


The 3 braid loops are secured onto the top of my head with bobby pins and the short pony tail clip. The 2 long braids are attached in the teeth of the small pony tail clip. The headband is just a stretchy rectangle sewn into a headband. Easy!


Earrings

I bought some earring hoop/hook things and some red wire. I super glued some feathers together, then wrapped them with wire so I could loop them around the earring part. Once done, I secured the wire with more super glue and done!


Scarf

I bought a few meters of white ribbed cotton and made a long rectangle 'tube" I cut strips on the bottom and tied them. That was it for the sewing.

To dye it, I first dip dyed the scarf yellow, leaving some white near the bottom. To the yellow dye, I added some orange and dip dyed that. I rinsed out the color and let it dry.

The next day I did the same for the orange, dip dying and adding a bit of red. Finally I dip dyed the middle area red.


This process took around 3 days and was mostly waiting. Just make sure you buy fabric in a light color and in a 100% cotton.

Bikini Top and Bottoms

I bought a bikini from Ardens (cheap teen's store in Canada) and modified it. I trimmed the bottoms so they were smaller and got rid of the bands around the hips. I put orange bias around the edges and added some bias tie-strings.

The tie strings didn't end up working out, so instead I added stretchy ties and that worked much better.


The same process for the top, except I removed the underwire and added it back in after I put bias all around the cups.

The halter strap is pleather, sewed on. For the tie in the front, I added eyelets with my hole punch and eyelet punch.

The strap in the back is just the same stretch cord I used on the bottoms.

Here is them bikini before I switched the ties for stretch cord:

Sleeves and Gloves

The gloves were simple, I just traced my hand and sewed the fabric pieces together. I used brown leather paint to add some weathering.

For the sleeves, I made a base sleeve to glue all the bows to. Then I made 10 bows from little rectangles of fabric. It took a while.

Once I sewed them all, I airbrushed them with some light brown paint. I then glued them on to the sleeve base.

Skirt

I just sewed a tube of stretch fabric to fit my waist area.

For the orange details, I glued some thick interfacing on the inside of the skirt before adding eyelets and threading the cord through them.


Belt

I had a real hard time finding some fabric for this. I ended up using some yellow outwear fabric. Belts are simple to make. The pouches were made with a pattern like this one.

You can adjust the measurements and dimensions, but that is a basic pattern. If you wanted to make them stiffer, use cardboard or craft foam and cover it with the fabric.

My pouches are non-functional.

Both the belt and pouches were weathered with leather paint.

Boots

These were the most challenging part of the build.

I bought some slide on white shoes that I shaded with my airbrush. I also painted the bottoms a dark blue color.

For the 'sock' part, I first traced a sock for a pattern, then sewed one for each foot. This will be the base where I build all the details on. For the 'boot' part, I made a rectangle that was smaller at the bottom so it could be attached to the sock. I interfaced the rectangle and made sure it was sandwiched between the fabric. I checked to make sure it fit on the sock.

The white details are just bias tape and the center part is just glued on and sewed down. The back ribbon is just bias tape threaded through eyelets and tied in a bow.

Once the details were done, I sewed the boot part to the sock. I was unhappy with how the sock looked, so I cut out the tip and sewed in some white fabric and was happier with it.

Daggers

I 3D printed these. The files are here. They took over a whole role of filament to print. The files call for a dowel for extra security. I think I should have sized mine down 10% to15%

Once everything is printed, I assembled them and glued them together with super glue. I then filled the gaps with wood filler. Then began the long road of sanding.

Sand everything until your happy with it. You can also spray them with spray primer and sand more. I didn't for these, I used wood glue to prime them.

Paint em, seal em, and wrap the handles in some leather-ish fabric and your done. The silver 'blade' edging was done with a paint marker.

If you're familiar with MeMeMe, you probably recognize her from the Girl music video. If not, here it is: https://vimeo.com/248406668

I think I really wanted to learn how to work with delicate fabrics and make my own lingerie. So that's why I chose this project (and to have a hoe cosplay to wear at Anime Expo lol). I also wanted to try to make a twintail wig too.

While my cosplay of this character looks great from far away, up close there are lots of sloppy seams (and the wig has a lot of hot glue). With that being said, I hope this post helps if you want to make this cosplay. I will try and give some recommendations on what I feel I should have done.

I also didn't take too many pictures of my progress, so apologies for that.

Materials

  • Wig and wefts
  • Hot Glue
  • Sheer light blue fabric
  • Nude stretch fabric
  • Selections of ruffles and yellow lace
  • Glove and stockings (I got mine from We love Colors in the color Maize)
  • Pink Ribbon (thick and thin)
  • Blue elastic
  • headband
  • Pink fabric
  • fake little flowers
  • thin elastic

Wand and Little Start pins

I bought the files for the want from here. I printed it from PLA and cleaned it up, filled the gaps and primed it. Then I painted it.

For the little star pins on the garters and bow, I found a star guardian star .stl file and resized it to fit. Same process with the wand, I printed, primed and sanded each little start before painting.


Wig

THE WIG. Well, I've never until now attempted a twin tail wig. I think my main mistake was using a wig that was too short. I also should have been way neater with my glue- I was using a high temp glue gun so I burned my fingers lots, resulting in messy glue seams

First thing I did was separate the wig into a left and right half, making two little twin tails as markers of where I would put the buns. This should be easy and look really smooth with a longer wig. I then started gluing extra hair along the part, securing it in the extra hair in the little twintails I marked off.

I used hot glue for everything here, I also glued some extra hair around the bottom and sides of the wig. Once all the wefts were added, I secured each twintail with an elastic.

I then started the bangs, gluing extra wefts for the long hairs on the left and right. I trimmed the bangs so they sit at my eye level. For the buns, I just wrapped the twintails like I was doing a bun in my own hair, gluing as I went along. I sprayed the whole wig with hairspray to finish it.


Garters

I found this great youtube tutorial on how to make bridal garters, check it out here. I used two different kinds of yellow lace and two sizes of ribbons. The tutorial video explains it way better than I can.

Underwear

I used a bikini bottom as a pattern, and sewed them up-double layers because yellow can be see through. I made the bands out of the same lace as the garters. Easy!


Shift

Is it a shift? I don't know what the top is called. This was another part of the cosplay I struggled with. I had chosen this really soft pretty fabric, but it was so hard to work with... My sewing machine ate it! I would use an organza if I were to make it again, it I think it would be easier to sew.

The first thing I did was try to make the boob-cups with cup inserts. It looked terrible. Instead I made a triangle bikini top with nude fabric and covered it in the blue fabric. I used the elastic as straps. The 'skirt' part was just 3 petal shapes that I pinned on and sewed up. All the ruffles were sewn on. I added some beads as well.

Because of the elastic, I didn't want to make the straps match exactly. Instead I made a ruffled chocker necklace to sort of match.

The little bows were just ribbon I glued in bow shapes and pinned or glued on.

Head Band

I covered it with some pink satin fabric and hot glued little fake flowers.

Pretty simple? No. Well it seems easier than it actually was. Thanks for reading and I hope you learned something cool!

Craft Blog: Yuffie Kisaragi 2019-06-17T17:54:36+00:00close

Yuffie is a character that I never thought I would cosplay- at least I figured I would make some other Final Fantasy cosplays before doing this one. But after playing the game recently, I wanted to add her to my 2019 projects. Great choice for me, since the remake has started ramping up with trailers and a release date.

I chose to use the original FF7 design as the main reference, mostly so it matched my Tifa and Aerith cosplays.

This cosplay was probably medium difficulty, as there are lots of small parts. Hopefully this helps you create this costume!

Materials

  • Cheap hiking boots
  • Fishnet thigh high stockings
  • White Denim shorts or pants
  • Rib knit stretch off white fabric
  • Grey or dark blue pleather
  • Craft foam (5mm and 2mm)
  • Googly eyes
  • Velcro
  • Green rib knit fabric
  • Non-stretch green fabric
  • Thick stretch off white
  • Batting
  • Rivets
  • Buckles
  • Orange pleather
  • Brown stretch suede
  • Acrylic and leather paints
  • AirBrush
  • Casting materials (silicone, resin, dye)
  • Gems to cast
  • Black tea (I'm not even joking)

ImageJ

This is a program you can use to scale your props and armor! I used it to get measurements for my Shuriken as well as measure my shoulder pad.

https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/features.html

Shuriken

I asked my friend Dee to 3D model Yuffie's shuriken for me. It comes apart for travel and is scaled to match my height. You can check her out here:

https://www.instagram.com/ninjadeelee/

https://twitter.com/NinjaDeeLee

I printed my shuriken on my CR10-mini out of PLA. Once it was all printed, glued the center parts together and filled the gaps with wood filler. I sanded any really nasty bumps (thankfully there weren't many) and primed it with a few coats of wood glue until smooth.

Then I painted everything and glued my 4 materias I casted to the empty areas near the shuriken middle. I sealed it and it was good to go.


Casted Materias and Gems

Yuffie has orange gems on the back and front of her shoulder. I printed out a gem from Kinpatsu's gem files and sanded it smooth. Then I used silicone to make a mold to cast the gems in resin.

I dyed the resin with acrylic paint to get the opaque look. I also did this for the materia on the shuriken.

I glued them on their respective parts with E6000 glue.

Shoes and Socks

I bought some cheap tan hiking boots that looked like Yuffie's and painted them orange with some leather paints. Similar to how I did my Tifa boots.

The socks in the art look like those scrunchy socks that Japanese school girls wear sometimes. I decided I wanted to do something like that for the socks.

I made a sort of triangle tube that was longer than I needed so the socks would scrunch. I also put elastic on the bottom so the socks would stay around the top of the boots. I airbrushed some shading on the seams as well.

The socks stay up with fashion/body tape.


Fishnet Sock and Glove

I bought some fishnet thigh high stockings and used one for the legging. I sewed some velcro on the front so the leg band would stick.

For the glove, I sewed the second stocking smaller so it would fit on my upper arm. I cut the bottom of the stocking as well so it was shorter. I also sewed a piece of velcro on top of the band so the bet and foam armor piece would stay on.


Leg and Arm Armor Parts

The leg band looks like a metal cuff so I decided to use 5mm craft foam to make the base. I glued 2mm foam details on as well as googly eyes for rivets. Once it was built and fitted around my leg, I primed it with a mix of wood glue and modge-podge. Then painted it. I glued some velcro to the inside of it so that the foam band would stay around the fishnet sock.

The pleather details were made of grey pleather that I weathered with some leather paint. I glued the pieces on with fabric glue. The belts attach to the bottom of the shorts to keep everything in place.

For the upper arm band, it was the same process of making the metal part from foam and gluing it to the pleather belt I made for it. There is also velcro on the back of the foam piece to make sure it stays in place.


Shorts

I bought some white denim skinny jeans with the intent to dye them with tan Rit dye. Before dying them, I cut them shorter, but not too short as I wanted to hem them to match the artwork,

Follow the dye directions and cut a test strip from your left over fabric (if you bought shorts and don't do any alterations make sure you are 100% sure you want to dye them). Use the test strip to make sure the dye is the right color. If it is, dye your shorts and rinse them in the washing machine and hang to dry.

My dye was not right. I ended up dying the shorts with black tea. Since denim is a natural fabric, tea will stain it. I used 5 tea bags and enough boiling water to submerge the shorts. I checked and stirred it until I was happy with the color. Then I threw them in the wash and hung them to dry.


The last step was heming the bottoms and sewing the grey belts that attach the legband on.


Gloves

The orange gloves were made by tracing out my hands on pleather, then sewing the pleather to a stretch fabric. I weathered them with leather paint. The grey armband was just glued on. The foam armor bit was made the same way as the rest of the foam armor.


Shirt

I used one of my own crop tops as a pattern to make the shirt. It was really easy!


Harness

I made a pattern using my dressform. Once it was cut out, I traced it on to my grey pleather, making sure it was double sided. I sewed both pieces together and cut slit on the underside of the harness so it would flip inside out. Once flipped inside out, I stitched it down and sewed up the armhole. Then I made a sort of pleather bias and stitched it around the armhole to make it look neat. The collar part was sewn on after.

The belts were stitched in place and measured. I made the belt holes with a cheap hole punching tool I got from amazon. The harness was weathered with leather paint and the rivets were placed on. They sort of poke through and are pressed down like a brad.


Shoulder Pad

I used imageJ to get measurements for the shoulder. I cut out two pieces of 5mm foam and glued them together. I used a heat gun to help shape the foam. Details were done with 2mm foam and googly eyes.

Once the should pad was build, I primed and painted it. Then I added the green tie and glued down the orange gems to the front and back.

Then glued velcro on theinside and velcro on the harness. This is how the shoulder pad stays on. Make sure the shoulder sits correctly before glueing and sewing down.


Puffy Sleeve-Thing

I honestly have no idea what it is. It's the strangest part of the design.

I measured the length of my arm and the length of the shoulder pad where it would attach. I cut two pieces of fabric and 1 piece of batting. I darted the bottom of the sleeve so it would curve a bit. Once all 3 were cut out, I glued batting onto the wrong side of my fabric. Then I sewed the other piece on and flipped it inside out. After checking the fit, I sewed up the top.

It is attached to the shoulder with velcro. I made straps of fabric to hold it to my arm. One around my hand holds the sleeve in place so it doesn't slide off.

The foam metal piece is just glued on with fabric glue. I also air brushed some shading on.


Headband

Ninja time! Its made with a front panel of non-stretch white fabric and green fabric that was satin-stitched on. The back of the headband is stretch fabric. It holds the headband on, while the green ties are just for extra security.

As with the rest of the foam details, its just glued on.


Wig

Yuffie's wig required no styling, and can just be coaxed into place and adjusted while wearing.

Easy!

That's it for my Yuffie cosplay. I hope this helps!

I have been a fan of Mai since I was a teenager. I remember seeing sprites and art of her on the internet and loving her look. I love that she's a total fan service character.

There are so many versions of her too, since she's been around for so long. The first time I cosplayed her, I picked details I liked from each version and made the cosplay that way. My new version I stuck with one design (KOF XIII) because I had no desire to wear the rope bow, and I love the backless dress. This cosplay is simple! But requires some engineering if you want to fake Mai's bust.


Materials

  • Red satin or similar fabric
  • White satin or similar fabric
  • Black satin or similar fabric
  • White satin bias tape (you can also make your own)
  • Black stretch fabric
  • Red stretch fabric
  • Velcro
  • Floral wire (or a wire clothes hanger)
  • White rope
  • Eyelets
  • Lacing
  • Big ole styrofoam ball
  • Heat n' bond
  • Fans (Ebay Amazon)

Gloves and Shoes

Most of my sewing is just measuring myself and roughing out a template. This is exactly what I did for my gloves. The black part is just a rectangle that I made wider at the top. Both the red and black parts are double sided. If you wanted to save on fabric, you could use interfacing as well.

I bought a simple black flat shoe and made a 'sock' to cover it. I then used painter's tape to cover my foot and shoe so I could draw a pattern on. I used this pattern to make the red parts of Mai's shoes. Since I was working with non stretch, I had to make a dart in the top of the red in order for it to sit flat. The black part is exactly the same as the gloves.

Both gloves and shoe covers close up with velcro.

Dress

One of my main issues with my old cosplay was that the top part did not sit low enough to hide my dance tights. I fixed this issue in my new cosplay by basically making the top of the dress a swimsuit.

I used a pair of underwear to make a pattern for the bottom 'thong' part. I made the bottom super high waisted, so that it would both cover my dance tights and be really easy to put on.

The top of the 'dress' (IDK what to call it) was made by using my dress form to make a plastic wrap pattern. I transferred that onto some broadcloth and made a mock up. I pinned that to the underwear part and adjusted it (making note to have the red more narrow, since I had to add a white trim). Once I was happy with the mock up, I cut out the pieces onto my good fabric.

The white trim is just bias tape I made myself. Once you're done sewing the top part, sew it to the underwear bottoms and you're good to go.

Obi Belt

The belt is just a double-sided rectangle of fabric wide enough to cover the middle area of the dress. I added eyelets and lace so I could cinch my waist in a bit and make sure my bow sits flush against my back. I also glued the red flap part on the belt.


Bow and Tail

The bow is simply a rectangle that I measured out and heat'n'bonded some red stripes to. I satin-stitched the red stripes down and sewed the rectangle up. Then I zip-tied the bow in the middle.A wire oval is attached to the bow with hot glue and a strip of fabric. The wire oval slides behind the belt.

The tail is just a wide sock of fabric that I sewed up. There is a loop on the end so that it can loop over the belt.The ball is just styrofoam that I painted red. Its attached to the tail sock with a screw and some low temperature hot glue (high temp will melt the styrofoam). The bottom little bow thing is just a bow shaped piece of fabric that is also screwed and hot glued down. It's also hot glued together in the middle as well.

Wig and Hair Tie

The hair tie is clipped on with wig clips and it keeps its shape because of a wire inside.The wig is just a base and a pony tail clip. The clip was teased to the end of the earth to achieve the fluffy-ness.


Fans

I bought some fans from ebay and painted them red. I also hot glued tassels on them. Easy!

This blog is more of a 'do as I say and not as I do'. I had so many issues with creating this simple, yet complex cosplay. I will try and go over what I did, and how I would do it differently.

This cosplay was a special request for a lvl 100 patron. I was more than happy to get this character, because she's been something I've wanted to make for a while.

Over all, I'd say I did just an 'ok' job with this one. There is lots I could do better. That being said, it was my first time making wings, and I had a good second attempt at making a proper bunny suit.

Read along to see what I did.

Materials

  • Black boots or Shoe Covers
  • Tights, I got mine from We love Colors
  • Airbrush or regular paint supplies
  • Light pinkish stretch fabric
  • Feather boa
  • Cotton, or some lining fabric
  • Cheap fabric for mock ups
  • Black fashion fabric
  • Flat boning
  • Spiral boning
  • Lacing
  • Eyelets
  • Interfacing
  • Headband
  • Floral Wire
  • Wire clothes hangers
  • Craft Foam
  • Foam Clay
  • Acrylic Pains

Boots

I had a pair of plain black high heels that I made some boot covers for. These are really simple to make and just slide over your shoes. You could also find some plain black boots to use as well. GGEZ


Gloves

Again, these were simple to make, just measure your wrist and upper arm, and the length you want the sleeves to be. Then just cut and sew. Also GGEZ


Tights

I highly recommend an airbrush for this portion. Make a bat stencil using painters tape. Make sure its not flimsy, as you're been using it a lot.

Wear your tights and stick the stencil where you want the bat. Lightly airbrush, doing more layers as you need. Run a hair dryer over the bat to speed up the drying process. Remove the stencil and rinse and repeat.

I used watered-down fabric paint to make the bats. If you didn't have an airbrush, you could buy some tights on etsy, or use a stencil brush and paint. If you go with the stencil brush and paint, it will take a while for the bats to dry, and its easier to smudge.


Bunny Suit

Ok, the big section, I will explain what I did, then I will write what I should have done.

Wrap yourself in plastic wrap and tape. Draw out a pattern on yourself, being careful to mark the waist in each pattern piece. I used 4 pieces: Center Front, Front Side, Back Side and Center Back. Once you have your pattern pieces, you're going to make some mock ups (like 3 at least).

Make a bunch of mock ups, tweaking the pattern as you go along. Once you're happy with how it looks, you can cut out your lining and good fabric. I interfaced both lining and nice fabric for extra sturdiness. Sew everything together, and press all your seams. Then you can add your boning. I use bias tape to make little channels to slide the boning in. Your flat boning should go in the front and the spiral boning goes on the sides.

I also added some cups for extra shape. After all the boning and cups are in, sew everything up, crotch and all. You can then add all the eyelets and lacing.

The feathers are just measured and sewed on.

After all that, my bunny suit did not fit right. It was bulky and not as tight as I wanted. I ended up removing the heart cut-out I patterned in to make the suit smaller and cinch better. The heart shaped cut out is just a piece of felt. I also found that it was loose around my bust and I had no idea how to fix it.


What I should have done was sew my pattern a little smaller, so that I could cinch myself in tighter. I also feel my suit is bulky and I probably didn't need to interface both fabrics. As for the boning, I feel I could have gone with all spiral boning and added more.

You could also make this out of stretch fabric and wear a waist cincher underneath to help hold the wings against your back. This is honestly what I should have done.

There are tones of tutorials on bunny suits out there, if you're looking to make one- I am by no means and expert, but I still hope this helps.

Headband and Wings

I have never made wings before- So this is me winging it so to speak.

I cut out 2 wing shapes for the headband, and shaped some wire to go along the spines of the wings. The wire wraps around the headband. I used some hot glue and foam to glue the wire in place. I then bent the wire and shaped the wings so I was happy with them.

I covered the wire with foam clay- make sure to use fresh stuff! I also sculpted out the details like the wing vein and little claw. Once both wings were done, I let them cure for 48 hours before trimming off some foam bits. Then it's easy as prime and paint.


The wings were more of the same, except I attached the wire spines to a wire loop that sits under my bra and bunny suit. The wire was taped to cover any sharp ends.

Same procedure of glueing the wire, adjusting the fit and adding foam clay.

I'm pretty happy with how light the wings are, but I made them the wrong shape, so they don't look the same as the art.


Thats about it, hope this helps some of you out!

Good luck

A Hunter Must Hunt

If you've been here a while, you'll know that I fell head-over-heels in love with the Soulsborne games in early 2018. After playing Bloodborne, I made it my mission to cosplay one of the coolest NPC characters in video games. Almost a year later I did it. Go me.

I had sat on this one for so long, because it was really different from any other cosplay I created before. I had never made anything remotely 'spooky' in my entire cosplay life, so something like this was really outside my comfort zone. I remember making the sword, boot covers and a base for the mask when I started a year ago. I scrapped those versions this time around and re-did them.

I do regret not being able to make the pistol. I plan to make one when I have my 3D printer.

Hold on to your blood vials and roll button cuz this is gonna be a long one.

Materials

  • Small, strong magnets
  • Foam Board
  • Worbla
  • 5 mm Craft foam
  • Foam Clay
  • Large selection of different black, tan and brown pleathers
  • Black wool
  • Dark Blue wool (or a similar fabric)
  • Grey lining Fabric
  • Very Stiff interfacing
  • Black Broadcloth
  • Silver buttons in a few different sizes
  • Black leather cord
  • Elastic
  • Soft rope
  • Embroidery Floss
  • Eyletts
  • Bell (I used a small Christmas ornament)
  • Silver chain
  • Belt Buckles
  • D-Rings
  • Glass bottles with corks
  • Cheap manicure kits (look for ones with scissors)
  • Cheap oral syringes
  • Acrylic and leather paints
  • Resin
  • Resin dye

Boots and Boot Covers

I had a pair of heeled chelsea boots hanging around that I had broken in. They were naturally weathered. I just decided to use those. They are also comfy as heck.

Eileen doesn't have a heel, but I am a small human so I opted for one. Eileen is also a classy old lady so I'm sure she might wear them anyways.

The boot covers were made originally from neoprene... which is nice and stiff with a bit of stretch... But it doesn't weather nicely.

I remade them with a soft textured black pleather. They slip on and tie around the knee area. An elastic keeps them on my boots. I hand sewed 12 buttons on each cover.

Pants

I have some nice vegan pleather leggings I got a long time ago. I wear them in day-to-day life, and thought they would match with the cosplay.

Jacket

I used a military jacket pattern. All I had to do was lengthen it, add a big collar and shorten the sleeves. I chose a wool blend for the jacket. It shredded nicely, and was super easy to work with. I glued the button panels on, and added a zipper. The lining is just a basic grey lining.

I made basic paper patterns for the cuffs and collar. I cut them out with my good fabric and sandwiched some stiff interfacing to make them stand up.


Gloves

I made some simple gloves from off-white pleather and stretch fabric. I sliced lines in the top of the gloves, and stitched them back up with white embroidery floss. The wraps are sewn on at the wrist area and tied up in however way you feel.

I had a few holes in the gloves where they were too tight, so I ended up just hand stitching them shut. It works for this character, because the whole costume has this worn look to it.

Belts, Straps and Necklace

I glued two lengths of brown pleather together and cut into strips. I sewed the strips for extra security and details. These strips made all the belts and straps. I used an eyelet punch to make the belt holes.

I made the necklace from a small bell ornament I had hanging around. I had to sand off all the gold paint before re-painting it silver. It just attaches with a small silver chain and a safety pin.

Pouch, Bottles and Surgical Kit

I made the pouch with brown leather and 5 mm craft foam. Its all glued together with contact cement. The foam keeps the pouches shape. The loops and details were stitched on as well. The pouch closes with velcro.

The bottles were made nasty with black paint and filled with resin. I made the labels with regular shipping labels and painted them with watered down acrylic paint. They just peel and stick on. They attach to the belt with some more of those pleather straps.

The surgical kit is probably my favorite detail in this costume. It's a pity the cape hides it so much. I weathered a bunch of manicure kits and filled some vials and oral syringes with red resin. The whole thing has loops for the belt to go through. The pieces are glued and strapped in.



Hood and Hat

Both the hood and hat are made with pleather. For the hood, I used a simple medieval pattern. It just slips over my head. It also serves to hide my hair and make the hat sit on my head better.

The hat was made using a hat as a template. I also interfaced the brim so it wasn't as floppy. The interfacing is hidden with a simple broadcloth lining.

Remember to make the hat big enough to sit over your hood and mask.

Crow Cape

The big boi.

This part of the costume is very heavy. A friend of mine hand sewed parts of his because he was worried his machine would not be able to sew it. use good, thick pleather for this part of the costume.

This was probably the second most daunting thing for me to make, after the mask.

The 'poncho' part is simply a 1/2 circle skirt cut to match. I had originally done two 1/4 skirts and sewed them together. Both work. I also made a lining part so I could hide the tops of the 'feathers'. The lining is a black suiting fabric. I also recommend adding velcro to the back of the cape and coat, just for extra security.

The 'feathers' of the cape are really just strips of fabric cut into feather-ish shapes. I used 4 different fabric types: Suiting wool, gauze, textured pleather and non-textured pleather. I cut out a bunch of different lengths and layered them so the longest would be on the bottom and the shortest would be on the top.

I sewed all the lengths together so there was a left and a right 'wing'. These were then sewn on the poncho part between the top and the lining. I used my machine to sew them, but it took a long time. Then I went and shredded the cape further with an craft knife.

The cape is heavy, so I had to add some lacing to the front to keep the cape on.

Mask

It took me forever to find a basic mask pattern. Here is the one I used. I made a paper template, tested the fit and modified it. Then I made a base out of 5 mm craft foam. I then sculpted the details on with foam clay. Once the foam cures, I sealed it with wood glue and modge-podge before painting. The stitching details are done with embroidery floss.

I also added some d-rings to hold the straps that secure it to my head. The straps are made the same way as all the other belt strips.

Blade of Mercy

Here is the template I used. I made the base from foam board, shaped it with an exacto knife and glued the magnets in the appropriate areas.

I then covered them with worbla, primed them with wood glue and painted them. I had actually re-done the paint job as one of the last things to complete the cosplay.

The magnets aren't as strong because there is worbla between them. If I were to re-do them, I'd 3D print so the magnets would work better.

Weathering

I chose to talk about this in its own section. I used a box cutter, sanding block and a metal bristle brush to physically tatter the costume. The bottom of the jacket, all the feathers on the cape, the bottoms of the boots, etc. Where ever the costume would see the most wear and tear.

The dust/gunk/blood is just acrylic paint. I water it down and brush it wherever I think it needs it. Just make sure you use leather paint on the appropriate parts. Regular acrylic paint will just peel off otherwise.

Intro

Tifa was the second cosplay I ever made. I remember making the belt from duct tape and craft foam and wearing 2 bras (one of which belonged to my friend with bigger boobs). I remember how many people told me they loved my cosplay, and I think it was then I realized this hobby was for me.

She's the most iconic Final Fantasy female character (sorry Aerith and Terra) and one of my favorites in terms of design. I love her simplicity. She's similar to Lara Croft in a way, who is another really iconic female video game character. Like Tifa, Lara kicks ass too.


Material List

  • Wig from Arda
  • Earrings from Etsy
  • Suspenders from Amazon
  • Belt from Amazon
  • Dr Martin knock-offs if you can find them
  • Rust colored pleather
  • Red stretch fabric
  • Black Stretch leather
  • White stretch fabric
  • 5mm and 2 mm craft foam
  • Industrial strength Velcro
  • Acrylic and leather paints
  • Wood glue
  • Spray sealant
  • Hot glue
  • Contact cement
  • Mold making supplies
  • Small glass aquarium rocks
  • Resin
  • Resin dye if you want the materia to be transparent.

Wig

With Tifa, I much prefer her hair a really dark brown like in the original art. I think I am neutral in terms of the style (fluffy and big, like the original vs more realistic like the AC renders). Since I was planning to do the original outfit, I chose to style the wig with lots of volume.

I hot glued in extra wefts fo volume, as well as crimped a bunch of hair for more poofiness. Kinpatsu Cosplay has a great tutorial about wigs: https://kinpatsucosplay.com/product/wig-styling-for-cosplay/ And its where I learned about crimping for volume.

The rest of the wig was just teased for extra volume and sprayed in place. I chose to omit the whale tail ending because I would have to glue the hair into shape- therefore not being able to brush it out.

The tie is made of red pleather and ties in a bow or wraps around.


Boots

I'm lucky that Dr Martins boots are in fashion, because you can find knock-offs everywhere for cheap. Thats what I used for Tifa's boots. I used leather paint to add the red, and the armor piece is made of foam. It stays on with industrial strength velcro.


Shirt, belt, suspenders and skirt

I bought the belt and suspenders from amazon. I think they were 50$ all together? I didn't want to make them myself because it would cost me more in time and materials.

The skirt I made from this really nice stretch pleather. It has a real leather texture too. I wanted the skirt to specifically be leather-looking, to contrast the long black gloves (which I made from a smooth stretch pleather.

I also made the top, which is another thing you could probably buy. The problem is I didn't want to pay $40 for a non-see through white top to cut up. I just Found some thick stretchy fabric and used another top of mine as a pattern.

Materia

I had originally just painted the back of some glass aquarium gems, but they would not adhere to the pleather. So I used the gems and made molds to cast out of resin and dyed them with acrylic paint. If you wanted them to be transparent, I'd use acrylic dye.

The first cast didn't glue either. So I casted them a second time, and set a sewing brad into the gems before they hardened. Then I was able to attach them without glue.


Gloves + Elbow Pad

The gloves were a pain. The pleather I bought was nice, but no glue or even leather paint stuck to it. I used hockey stick tape for the white wrap on the glove as well. The underside of the gloves are just red stretch fabric that I weathered with my airbrush.

The elbow pad is just 5 mm and 2 mm craft foam. I made a pattern with paper to trace on to 5 mm foam. I glued both sides with contact cement. I glued on little foam circles as well. Then just paint and seal. It secures with an adjustable velcro strap.

Seres and Kitana have floated into my brain as ideas before... But I tend to only make costumes for characters/series I really like. In the past I've had a few patrons sponsor cosplays/outfits for sets, so its something we can do if more than one person wants a specific character.

I Will see about doing something like that. My plan with re-release stuff is to just add a bit extra instead of replace new content. I know there are quite a few of you guys that have been here for a while and have most the sets, so I would for sure make sure the new content would be the same (4-5 new sets)

Re-releases don't feel lazy as one would initially think. It'll be for those that missed it, and frees up a alot of time to work on bigger projects. So, i say you can kwwp doing it if you want. I still get lewds either way

Actually I did have an idea. It would be cool to see you revisit some of your older cosplays, but i think you already have plans for that.

β˜… Maruwins - 12 Jun 18 19:01
Well, I chose this picture as a teaser because the character is cute and this suits her more than a lewder pose. Plenty of other photo sets coming this month where there may be teasers more to your taste.

User #4730686 - 12 Jun 18 19:11
it is not that i don't like the picture xD i was just saying that it is not as lewd as one would expect from you Maru :D but if you don't want to lewd the character then that is fine, i appreciate your work and all that you do for your Patrons

Crisis averted! We did it.

I bought this cosplay from EZ costumes. I ordered a month before I needed the costumes and they came in time. So if you want to order something instead of make, they are pretty good.

Better than Micostumes anyways.

These are the cosplays I'll be working on after I get back from AX. A very PTSD inducing church lady and a nice one.

Friede will be a 2 month project that will be for Pax Prime. I am making both scythes. There will be just a cosplay photo set for Friede, plus a print and poster option.

Aeris will be for AR at the beginning of August. I'll be making the original FFVII version with the metal jacket cuffs and shoulder pads. I will be making her staff as well. There will be a lewd photo set for Aeris, as well as print, a poster option and polaroids.

I will be sure to include all the wip photos for those of you in the $5 and up tiers.
