Nunnally in Wonderland Version
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
Last Updated: 07-25-2012
I've known I had to do this costume since the first promotional images for the Nunnally in Wonderland OVA came out; Lelouch just looked so ridiculous! It took a while to get full reference pictures (I almost missed the fun on the coat tails), but the wait was worth it.
This costume has a lot of layers. The pants are made from cotton duck that I ordered off of Amazon.com. I am pleasantly surprised how well this fabric worked out (though I wish the diamonds were larger). It's heavier than I'd expected and very stiff, but I don't need to iron it at all! The shirt is white poplin and is the same basic pattern as Masako's shirt. The vest is cotton broadcloth. The club-shaped cravat is stretch sateen.
The coat is my favorite part; it's three patterns spliced together into a crazy CLAMP monstrosity. The shell is black stretch sateen, with kona cotton bias tape (which I made) and applique, and red stretch sateen for the collar and cuffs. Did I mention that I love the applique on the back? It's my favorite part of this whole thing.
The hat was made with the same basic technique as my Tyki hat, using plastic needlepoint sheets and a lot of interfacing. I purchased the roses and the green grass and hot-glued them onto the hat.
The cane was painted with acrylic paint, and I purchased the gloves from Amazon. (I am done making gloves for a while!)
The wig is from eBay - all I did was trim it.
Placidmage and I debuted these costumes on Friday at Otakon 2012, the same day the Nunnally in Wonderland OVA came out in Japan. I think this is the most timely costume I've done.
