This was my first entry into a Cosplay Contest. I entered at NDK 2011 as a beginner. I was moved to Intermediate and was told the only reason I wasn't moved to Masters is because the rules say they can only move you up one category. I was so nervous soing on stage in front of hundreds of people, but somehow I rocked the stage and came out with 1st place in Intermediate and got a shiny award.
Almost the entire costume was handmade. I made some of the armor out of plastic resin and the other armor was made from craft foam. The Habit, Nuns Collar and Dress were made from Queensland crepe and blue satin (I made 660 inches of blue satin binding). I used approx 76 buttons and made and sewed on 24 arrows. If you ever want to know how I made something please feel free to PM me.
I am working on a tutorial for this on my blog please follow the link to
