This outfit was inspired partly by some of the really wonderful costumes in Game of Thrones and the Elfs in Lord of the Rings such as Thranduil and others. All parts of this were made by myself, the pattern is my own, other than the boots of course, however I did have to learn a little leather working to make them fit right (no one on earth makes knee highs that fit me)….
The nails are also crafted, lavenderlace showed me how to make them on a costume we worked on together last year and i just duplicated her process, she also showed me how to do the knot work!
I made this outfit for my schools Annual Masquerade and a Emilie Autumn Concert as well, I might also wear it for Anime Boston this coming May but we will see.
There will be a detachable cloak that goes with this that is not yet finished. As well as a bottom part for the mask that will also be detachable that will go over my mouth and the rest of my nose, I will post those when they’re done.
This is one of the hardest designs I’ve every tried pulling off, I hope you guys like it.
