Chronicling my adventures with non-lasted heels!

Recommended Posts

My prop game for this costume was A+, and I'm quite proud of myself, even if I didn't have time to stitch down the applique and stitch teh straps (yay for Barge Cement!)  Aside from the shoes, the mask is heat-formed smoked acrylic, and I machined the jewelry from brass and powder-coated the black areas.

A few more costume photos, because I'm proud of this thing, even if it does need more work before I take it to its next con:

...I suck at posing, okay.  I'm still pretty pleased with how I got such a nice tailored fit from non-stretch fabric - it's all silk that I hand-dyed.  With about fifteen yards of horsehair to keep it from being a sad floppy mess.

I never did get a good picture of the back detailing, which was really nice with piping and stuff.  Maybe next time!

After remaking the dress, I won Best Craftsmanship at a tiny con over the summer, and more excitingly, at a medium-sized con in October.  I am immensely proud of myself, and I'm definitely planning to show it off at some bigger cons next year!

You did a great job! Such a cool costume. I’ve never heard of Tales of Berseria. Is it a book series, or a comic, or a game?
