Oh Esther! You are totally the favourite child! This costume was a life-consuming, labour of love. Haha. This costume was constructed over a three month period and it is still being improved. I learned a lot while making Esther and I've learned more since.
Basic ingredients for this costume: white cotton and over 45m of bias tape. There are about 120 buttons, many spray painted beads and sheet metal.
My favourite aspect of this costume has to be the rosaries. It took almost three solid days to make them all. Also people's reaction to this get-up was hilarious. A couple people actually thought my friend (Ceno - cosplaying Noelle) and I were nuns! Too funny!
