Purple Tights Varriant
Last Updated: 12-09-2009
Made as a request from my boyfriend, Sephygoth, since Morrigan is one of his favorite characters from Darkstalkers. Also so that we could have another pair to cosplay as together since he cosplays as John Talbaine (aka Wolfy) from Darkstalkers XD
I was really a combined effort between him and I from start to finish since he said if I made the cosplay he would help, so I'm gonna break down what each of us did below:
Head Wings - He marked the placement, I made the base armature and sculpted the part closest to the head and he sculpted the wings and claw bits out of various materials, finished the full piece, and painted both of them. They are fully removable and super lightweight for easy packing and transport. ^_^ (If you have a question about the Head Wings they should really be directed to Sephygoth, since I only assisted and he made them awesome!)
Wig - He cut the wig while I wore it and I sharpie-dyed it the green color and then he styled it.
Armlets - I made the base glove and he marked and cut the finger portion for me so it fit my hand properly and I sewed them including some blind hem stitching by hand. (Made out of a high quality Lycra-spandex.)
Feathers - Real feathers that I hand-sewn on the strap by me.
Leotard - He made the pattern for the leotard from scratch, I sewed and altered it, he helped in form fitting it to me, I added the boob-holder and straps, and he fashioned and added the heart. (Made out of a high quality specialty Lycra-spandex.)
Tights - I made the tights out of spandex & fitted them and he painted the permanent dye on for the bats on while I was wearing them so they looked right when worn. (Made out of medium quality Lycra-spandex)
Boots - I bought a pair that were similar to her's and altered them. He marked the shape while I wore them and I cut, altered them, and sewed them to secure the hems.
Big Wings - He designed and made the pattern and cut them out, but we ran out of time before Otakon 2009 to finish them so they will appear at a later con. ^^;;;
Since a lot of people have been asking about the materials I used to make this cosplay. I used spandex for the tights, leotard and armlets. The boots are some sort of vinyl.
