I'm attempting to make my first cosplay and I've decided to go with Lady from Devil May Cry 3 as we look pretty similar. The only problem I'm running into is that I can't find any good reference pictures of Lady and no information on her costume. Can anybody help me out here?:lost:

if you "google" 'Lady devil may cry 3' you'll find a few pictures...the only good one i've found is where she's holding the Kalina ann though...

Thanks guys, those were the only pictures I could find too. I know the shirt will be pretty easy to do as all it is a white button-up top and the boots shouldn't be too hard to find either (might be a little pricy, but not to scarce as say, Tifa Lockhart's shoes!). But what in the world is that skirt made out of and what exactly is over it?

Well, it looks like a tartan mini skirt, and the "thing" attached over it are magazine pouches... They looks like a plastic fabric (something like vynil, so they are custom made) with the same tartan pattern...

:) I am also doing Lady as a cosplay this year. So here are some things that may help:

-The "skirt" is made up of the magazine pouches with a plaid design, I guess, painted on there. I still have to figure out how to work that one. I'm currently focused on the bazooka.
-Underneath the skirt is a pair of bike shorts in a purple. I'm going for a black because it was easier to find on ebay (and I think looks a little bit better).

Are you planning on doing the bazooka? Cause I can give you the picture I'm referencing here (http://i2.tinypic.com/souywh.jpg).

I hope that helps. ^^

I actually prefer navy blue shorts over purple. I agree that in game, they look purple, but I tend to always go off of cg art anyways. IMO too purple stands out a little too much, and doesn't match well with the rest of the outfit.

For the magazine pouches I used thick cardboard and covered them with vinyl. I then painted the stripes to create the plaid pattern.

The shirt should be pretty easy to get considering it's a standard button down business shirt. Does anybody havea tutorial or any photos-in-progress of how they did the skirt and the magazine pouches. Also, where in the world can I find those boots?

i dont have any in progress photos of my skirt, but it was pretty simple, just a little hard to explain. i just found plaid fabric with the same colours as her skirt (i didnt really care that the design wasnt exactly the same) i cut poster board in rectangle shapes to make boxes...its a little hard to explain but you cut corners and score the edges wheres theres going to be a fold so it folds easier, then cover it with fabric and fold and glue the boxes together

*-* if that doesnt makes sense i can make up a tutorial with pix if youd like haha

as for the boots i got mine at electriqueboutique.com...but im not sure if they have them anymore. they were brown so i sponge painted them with red, orange, yellow and blue in some places then added the dark blue laces. you can probably do the same with any boots found on ebay

hope this helps ^^

I tried looking at that website, but I didn't find those boots on there (I may have overlooked). Also I tried doing an ebay search, but being a newbie to that I wasn't coming up with much in my searches.

Xavietta - Actually that tutorial would be extremely helpful and extremely appreciated. But if you can't do it, I completely understand. I've copied all of your pictures onto my laptop and am in the process of disecting them to figure out what you did. So far you've got the best cosplay of Lady I've seen. Great job!

Also I'm not sure if this is the right colouring, but are the socks (which look somewhat like neon-blue stocking) and shoelaces are neon-blue. Are the shorts the same colour? I've heard some people say they're purple.

oh thanks so much ^^ im kind of busy for the week, but i can probably get a tutorial together this weekend

as far as the shorts go i think theyre the same colour. I used the same fabric for my shorts and socks which was a dark blue shiny knit fabric

i can also keep an eye out for boots if youd like..what size are you?

You are quite welcome and I do understand the timing issue completely. It's a service and a gift to me for you to create that tutorial, so take all the time you need should you choose to do it (but know that it is extremely appreciated!)

Where did you find that fabric? Can it be picked up at any local Joann's or Hancock's?

Oh that would be a tremendous help. Hmm, my size depends on the shoe but I roughly run around an 8 or so.

Well I finished the tutorial ^^ I hope all the links and everything work as Ive never added links to a post before *-* and I REALLY hope it makes sense xD haha let me know if any of it is confusing ^^ The fabric I used for my Lady skirt i found at jo ann fabrics in the quilting fabric, it was about $3-4 a yard. Also I searched around for some boots, and to my surprise couldnt really find anything all that great, but ill keep looking ^^

Lady Skirt Pouch Tutorial

Supplies
1- 22inchx28inch (standard) Posterboard
1 ½ Yards Fabric
24- Ό inch studs (the studs I used I found in the scrap-booking section at jo-anns)

Paint brush
Exacto Knife
Scissors
Ruler, preferably a clear ruler which can be found
in the quilting section at Jo-ann Fabrics

As Shown: Draw 8- 2 ½ x 10 inch rectangles, label all “A”
& 8- 5 x 7 rectangles, label all “B”

2. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678891
As Shown: on “B” pieces, from outside edges on sides and bottom, mark Ύ inches and draw lines. Then from lines mark another Ύ and draw lines. Score lines with scissors

3. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678892
As Shown: cut corners of “B” pieces

4.
Cut 8- 3 ½ x 11 inch pieces of fabric & 8- 6x8 inch pieces of fabric

5.
With paint brush, spread glue over one side of all “A” &”B” pieces* place fabric on top, press down and smooth. Use weights to keep pieces flat while drying. Let dry 5-10 minutes.
*only do one at a time. Ex: do one, and while its drying do the next and so on.

6. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678893
As Shown: After drying, glue over hanging pieces* by spreading glue on reverse side and folding fabric to the back. Press down, smooth and again weights may be used. Let dry completely for 15-20 minutes.
*On “B” pieces, cut corners of fabric s shown, leaving about Ό inch over hanging

7. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678958
As Shown: Fold “B” pieces on scored lines and glue in to place. This is a little time consuming because you have to hold each piece as it dries.

8. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678959
As Shown: Glue “A” and “B” pieces together, hold and let dry

9. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678960
As Shown: On a scrap piece of posterboard, draw a Ύ x 3 ½ inch rectangle. Mark a dot ½ inch above top line. Connect top corners to dot, cut out. This is the template for the brown vinyl detail pieces.

10. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678961
As Shown: Use template to cut out 8 pieces in the brown vinyl. Using exacto knife, CAREFULLY cut a small notch for the stud to be attached into.

11. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678962
As Shown: After stud is in place, glue brown vinyl piece to box in the center, with the point about a ½ inch from the bottom.

12. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678964
As Shown: Again, using exacto knife CAREFULLY cut small notches in the corners of piece “A” and attatch studs. Bring top edge of piece “A” over and glue in place on piece “B”.


As for the pouches, they’re done ^^ to attach them to the belt you can do whatever is easiest, but this is what I did:
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=678963
As Shown: cut a rectangle scrap of fabric and glue it to the backside of the pouch, with fabric sticking out over top. Use that extra fabric to sew it to the belt.

Oh wow:eek: that's amazing and EXACTLY what I needed. Thanks so much! I'm going to start looking for supplies soon. This helps a bunch! Now if I could just find those dern boots...by the way, how did you do the belts? Did you construct those yourself or did you find them like that somewhere? (I'm banking on the former)

cool im glad it makes sense xD but if you have any troubles let me know and ill try to help the best i can ^^

as for the boots, i searched around again and unfortunately couldnt find anything -_- i think i was lucky when i found mine, especialy since their a size too small and they still fit xD

Yeah, those boots are starting to become a pain to find. By the way, what did you do for the gloves? I've tried looking for them, but they looked like they would have to be more custom made than mass-produced.

i found some gloves on ebay for about $10 and just shortened them to wrist length and added studs. something like this would work:

Also I keep looking for boots but still no luck. I found some black ones if youre willing to paint them completely, but im not sure how well that would turn out, heres a link:

So like, I'm doing Lady too, and I found the boots, but... they're a bit... expensive. You'd have the buy them off the internet.

Uh, Hey Xavietta, in your tutorial what does it mean to "score with scissors"? Sorry if that's a common term, I've never heard it before.
