Elizabeth Middleford (Lizzy)

manga chapter 57

Kurosagi

Last Updated: 08-05-2011


So... I really disliked Lizzy for the first 56 chapters of Kuroshitsuji. She was useless and frilly and obnoxious, and served no real purpose in advancing the story or characterization. Then I read chapters 57-59, and I changed my mind about her. (Toboso Yana = TROLLOLOLOLOL) So, since I am pretty much the antithesis of cute and frilly, I simply had to cosplay this version!

The skirt is a two-layer full-circle skirt trimmed in 19 yards of eyelet lace and 8 yards of satin ribbon. The skirt fabric is a bamboo-cotton blend, which is close enough to muslin to be believable for period undergarments, but is smoother and has a tiny bit more sheen to it. I made the entire skirt -- drafting, sewing, hand-gathering ruffles, weaving pink ribbon through the eyelet lace -- in one nonstop overnight session. (I figured if I'm only going to do one frilly costume in my life, I ought to put some effort into it.) ^_^

There are roughly 8 more yards of lace trimming the bodice and corset, as well as lace-trimmed cotton bloomers hidden under the skirt. The hair decoration is pink and white lace with a grosgrain ribbon rosette, finished with an antique button. I was fortunate enough to find pearl teardrop earrings on eBay, and got them shipped to me in time for the con!

The jacket was modified from a thrift store suit (the suit coat was cut down into a tuxedo style, and the matching suit pants were sacrificed to provide fabric for the tails). The silver-striped cuffs were cut from a thrift store shirt. I painted the buttons silver and sewed pieces of two vintage earrings together to approximate the Phoenix emblem.

The sabers are made of balsa wood, styrene and EVA foam. (I made the costume to wear at Gen Con, which has a fairly strict weapons policy, so they could not look like anything real.)

As yet there are no official color references for this costume, but I chose a pink-and-white color palette because it seemed to suit Lizzy.
