The cloak looks great! I love the fabric's subtle pattern.

I love the flowey look of your cloak!

Pretty! I like the drape, it looks good! I just watched the first 10 episodes of the first season today while I worked on costumes, and I noticed that in the Pilot, Red's outfit/cloak was TOTALLY different.

Check it out!



I really love this look, do you guys think anyone has done this outfit before?

::EDIT::

And to contribute something actually useful to the thread, here is some progress on my Rumple cloak.

@Medhia/Touchmon/Arlette - Thanks guys!

@Arlette - Whoa. I completely missed that. Solid red cloak, and what, a red turtle neck under that? Looks like she's got long black leather gloves instead of her red. Huh. I guess when it comes to pilots they haven't full established the character yet, so maybe this was an in progress look? (Probably easier too. Tracking down the long red leather gloves was special, and yet their black counterpart were so much more readily availible.)

The details on Rumple's cloak look great. Are those studs on the arrow bits?

You are a god for finding that fabric. I've been running searches for days and apparently I'm not entirely great at finding fabric online.



Since Snow's war council outfit is one I fell in love with when I saw it, I have to do it. I'd LOVE to get it done by Nan Desu Kan 2013 but I don't know how well I'll stick to that timeline especially since I recently just got back in cosplay. I'm sure I've nearly forgotten how to sew. xD

In terms of Snow's war council outfit though, I managed to snap a few(albeit blurry) screen shots of the Entertainment Weekly video and while he was holding up Snow's jacket I noticed that it has a bit of a split and what I coined 'cheat snap' on the bottom of the jacket before it flares out and it's cleverly hidden under the belt. You can also see that the shirt that is oozing from her sleeves is a separate shirt, and previously I was going to make it a pull over top until I found out this. As for the lining, it looks like a satin sort of material, judging by various shots of the sun having a tendency to 'shine' off of the material.
Screen1
Screen2

Her sleeves make my life a lot easier. As a general quirk, I hate attaching sleeves to anything and this is basically making tubes and attaching them with what looks, strangely, like twine with more Swarovski crystals at the ends.

Here you can also see another snap holding the top of her jacket together where it meets, the fabric pattern of the belt which seems to be a shiny crisscross pattern and the detailed piece in the middle, and you can also see a bit more of the pattern of the accompanying cloak. I'm thinking it's a lightly furred flower or vine pattern but I haven't found any really good images to compare that idea to. The lining of the cape you can see is a type of satin, or at least shiny satin-esque material.

Cape Side-Zoom
Cape Bias
Cape Inner

Another thing I was struggling with was trying to figure out if the draped skirt was one single piece or if it was split into four panels. Turns out it is four different panels attached to the inside of the jacket and flowing from there. In terms of figuring out what the skirt is made of, I figured I'd just go with a nice Egyptian cotton in a cream or color as close to the Robert Allen color swatch as I can get.

The EW interviewer said her pants were made of leather but the more I study screen shots of her outfit, the more I'm convinced its just the front of her pants that have the leather while the backside of her pants are a more breathable material in keeping with the practicality of riding breeches. One could simply buy a pair of riding breeches rather than construct them as it seems to me they are made almost identically.

The most frustrating part to me are her boots. Knee-length and light coffee brown, they seem to have only a small buckle on the back side of the boots They are plain leather flat boots with an almost non-existent heel and have a zipper running on the side of them. I'm currently hunting through various websites for a similar or exact pair and if I find them, I'll definitely post them.

I should be sleeping... So, uh, yeah, and that's my breakdown for anyone else looking to do this costume. We can swap info and whatnot. Wheeeeeeee....

Well done, comrade, well done. Now that's a costume breakdown. And sleep? Nah, sleep is for the idea-less.

Man, I love that outfit so much. I just want that jacket and tails for my own mad purposes, heck with the costuming.

Thank You for the break down Dance Floor Doll. That's awesome. I especially love the back views. I didn't think of the scene where the soldiers dump her on the ground. Perhaps I get too angsty seeing that beautiful white fabric in the dirt.

I'm all too good at fabric shopping. The 20 boxes of fabric that had to be moved from my old house to my new house last month are a sad sad example of that.

It is a great fabric!
http://warehousefabricsinc.com/Merch...&range _high=


For Regina's dress I'm still looking but found to potential ones. Except that they are $50 per yard and i need 9 yards. >_< I'll link them once i have a swatches in hand. Damn you Mood fabrics and your high NYC/LA prices.

I feel like they purposely cut the scenes specifically to never show which boots Emma's wearing with which outfit. ...Unless it's a night scene, then it's okay to show them... when you can barely see them

Here another option fromt he same site.
http://warehousefabricsinc.com/Merch...w=&range_high=

And this I'm just bookmarking for me.
http://warehousefabricsinc.com/Merch...w=&range_high=

If it come down to it I'm willing to paint on top of the texture pattern to get the colours I need for Regina. I just hate the look of a flat pattern fabric for her and have a full arsenal of Jacquard fabric paint locally at my disposal.

I actually found a site that sells the fabric for just under 20$ a yard, (click hurr) and since I can't find it cheaper (anywhere!), I'm definitely buying the bajeezus out of it with my tax return. XD And when I get a chance, I'm actually editing my previous post about the under-doublet shirt.

After staring at the video some more, I realized that my pet peeve will be realized, I'm definitely going to have to attach sleeves since it's a faux shirt. I'm going to guess that the piece in the front that acts as more of a modesty panel than an actual shirt. Or maybe its a tank top made of the same material as the fabric peeking from the sleeves. I'm not sure but either way, me no like. But I want it so bad, it's so pretty.

Very sad to find out that my OuAT group is falling apart. Both the person who wants to cosplay Belle and the one who wants to be Rumple lost their jobs. And my Snow is having trouble too. I am going to be a lonely Red. T_T

Soo.....incoming Jacks, anyone? Was having one of those "you know you're a cosplayer when" moments, during the episode, when I found myself with thoughts like:

New character. Break it down.
Green. Green is good.
Bodice is kinda low for me.
Good layering, though.
Leather? Or some sort of silk?
Plot, Moofy. There is a plot. Not just costumes.
Snirk. James and his evil black puffy shirt.

On my end, Red's skirt's almost done! Just need to create that tack up point and it should be good to go. Next up will be petticoat, when I have a chance to monopolize the dining room table for fabric cutting.

Ugh, that's no fun. Maybe you will luck out and you will run into other cosplayers, though! What con are you debuting it at?

What I was most intrigued about was the teaser for next weeks episode. I think everyone guesses where right about Baelfire.


I also thought it was brilliant watching Rumpel freaking out with a direct sense of his lose of power.
