This is a completely original character I made up. He is a very dark, powerful, and arrogant King. He is also one of my main villain characters.
Pieces that were bought:
The robe/long coat is made of doubled layers of black velvet to make the inside look just as nice as the outside. Red velvet stripes were then hand sewn onto the black, then the golden tucked on both side blindly hand sewn over that to give the finished and seamless look. The 5 gold buttons were the last things added (my first time sewing on buttons :D ) The parts under the est also are detailed. (I'll try to get pictures of under the est up soon)
The vest is made of black vinyl with golden silk hand sewn around the edges. 4 buttons holds it together. The loops on the shoulders is to hold on the cape.
The cape is doubled red satin (doubled, to the sheen shows on both sides (Pics coming soon). The cape is liked with 6 black feathered boas for the trim.
The sash as easy as it was just two pieces of red velvet sewn together.
Black cut ribbon keeps the hair back in the low ponytail that he keeps his hair in.
All-in-all this cosplay took me roughly 2 and 1/2 months to make, and is the most expensive and difficult costume I have taken on yet, estimating around $300. But it was a labor of love, which weighs roughly 7 pounds total (that includes the cape).
Saddly, the one thing I don't have is golden cat eyes; and it would be awesome to get contacts. Saddly though I don't do well with contacts, so I guess I'll do without :(
