- Tell us about your cosplay:
Made this costume using foam, worbla, fabric, paint, tassels, etc. i made everything u see from scratch except shoes which were strapless and white at purchase and belt which was green at purchase.
- How long did it take to complete?
I worked on it here and there throughout the year. Then as con approached, since I had been mostly slack all year, I worked on it almost all day for 2 weekends.
- What was the hardest part when constructing it?
The hardest part was the dress. First dress I ever made from scratch. Part of the trouble with the dress is that I just got a new sewing machine and that didn't work out, so I pulled it apart and went back to my trusty hem glue cheat. However, once constructed, the dress was a bit more baggy than I’d like so I took it in. Measured wrong and brought it in too much and it was too tight. Had to pull it apart again and remake it. I was happy with the end result mostly except I have a glue stripe down the side but its barely noticeable. Whew. My next dress with be easier. :)
- What do you love most about this cosplay?
I love how close I was able to get to the source material. I'm proud that there are only small differences. :) I love how sexy Lorelei is and I hope I captured that.
- What's your next cosplay project?
My next big cosplay plan is a character from Soul Calibur.
