This is a wonderful shot taken by someone's gallery, photo credits to them. I only look a bit silly, because the make-up around my mouth wore off on my Subway Spicy Italian sandwich, lulz. Gotta eat. x_x I really love this shot because it shows the front of the cape well, and I'm really happy with how the cape turned out in general, so having a photo that showcases that well makes me all kinds of happy. :D
This costume was pretty easy for me to make, but I still took my time with it. All seams are finished with my serger, or fully lined (like the cape and sandals). The applique on the sleeves was finished around the border with a hand-sewn satin stitch. Wig was dyed, and makeup colors were blended to achieve a very pale purple, custom blended acrylic paints in the same fashion to match my skintone. I also shaded the ears for more realism. I made the belt out of leather hide, and the resin gems were cast by athena-chan and I backed those bad boys up with foil (though you really can't see the effect in photos, sadly). I did some custom patterning for this costume, I ended up taking a lot of measurements for the pieces, especially the sandals, so I could just slip them on and off (they have no zippers, snaps, or velcro). The button for the cape is just one of those furniture moving discs that I painted, which strangely enough worked out really well, lol.
