Dark Tournament

This costume took the longest. That's only because I started it as an in school project. I made the yellow tunic as a class assignment for my costume class in university. I had to take all the measurements, then make a pattern, then destroy that one because the tunic is nothing like a vest, then rearrange it to work so it would be able to be sewn and not come apart. I also had to use a fancy stiff fabric in the collar sot it would stay up. Then I trimmed it with blue ribbon.

I bought the pants at the last minute because I originally intended to use sweat pants, and then remembered what Baltimor weather is like. The shirt I conveniently already owned. The shoes I bought, but painted. The bottoms were tan, and I painted them black. The whip I actually already owned. I'd bought it for an Indiana Jones costume a while back and just superglued leaves onto it and then spray painted it green. I was going to do thorns, but then I figured it might be too. . .weapon-like. The rose was felt and I bought it for like a dollar.

The wig was crap-tastic, but cheap which was why I was interested. It came with less bangs and no layers. I cut in some more bangs and styled them for the con, and added his shorter side burns and gave it a bit of layering.

All in all I don't think it turned out too badly.
