Eve

Black Cat (manga)

Last Updated: 02-22-2010


My friend wanted to do a Black Cat group and I decided to cosplay Eve, since I thought her dress would be fairly simple, and I rather like being a blonde.

This has ended up being the dress from HELL. The fabric I chose hangs beautifully, but it's slippery as anything and doesn't want to lay flat, no matter what I do or how many pins I use. It's been a real challenge to even sew the thing together. The skirt took seven tries to sew to the bodice. Yes, SEVEN. I'm nothing if not stubborn!

The bodice was a real patience-tester, too. No matter what pattern I used, it ended up too big and baggy through the neck. I'm still not sure how three different patterns could all produce the same effect when I modified none of them. I finally had to take the sides in eight inches just to get the front to look better.

The wig has been the best part of this outfit, though. I tried a new ebay seller for wigs and I am in LOVE. The colour is slightly off for Eve but I think this one looks better on me.

It's been very difficult to find a silver cross in the right style (go figure!) so I made mine out of craft foam. The petticoat is next on my list of things to do. The tulle is cut, I just have to sew it together.
