I've been starting to cut out some of my Caterina cosplay and hope I can share some progress soon, but I have a question I wanted to ask others that have cosplayed her (or anyone that might have suggestions). I'm a bit stumped on exactly how to make her cape. The back is no problem, but how it drapes over her shoulders to the front is confusing me on how I should pattern it out. Any suggestions?

I got some work done on my corset for Caterina and thought I would share. I have been referencing pretty much every picture there is of her, and decided to wing the design and to do it as applique. I will probably add some beading and other detailing later. I still need to do the boning channels, bias edging, ruffles, grommets, and lacing and then it will be done. I'm hoping I can progress quickly.

So I get to cosplay my second favorite Trinity Blood character, Virgil Walsh, for otakon this year!

My friend can attest that I am pretty much the president of the one-woman Virgil Walsh fan club, so this makes really excited,

Quinn, I am really looking forward to seeing your Virgil. Love the character and he is so under cosplayed.

Question for the Lilith cosplayers. I'm currently on the hunt for her wig. At a loss in the UK and was wondering where did you get your wigs from? I'm after a more cherry red rather than a bright red as I prefer the colour. Any help would be great. Thank you.

hey guys... I'm starting to plan my Esther (finally) for Katsucon and I kinda want to do embroidery (hand) for the patterns on Nun esther's outfit.

would that be too ornate? I haven't been able to do a test yet because I have another outfit i'm working on,
but what do you guys think?

Too ornate for Trinity Blood?! There's no such thing! But I seriously think embroidery on the costume would be gorgeous. And it would make you stand out some over other Esther cosplayers.

I have a quick question for anyone that knows about good Sateen. I plan to make Schehera's cheongsam based dress and currently debating about what to use for the best quality. I was thinking Shantung Sateen, or stretch sateen but do you think I should use something else or are either okay?

It's a matter of personal preference, but I think shantung sateen would look a little strange on that dress as the dominant fabric -- to me, it says sleek and smooth and that means without the slubs present in a shantung. A good medium-weight stretch sateen seems like a good choice, though.

Ah i see what you mean, thank you for your help! I was a little stuck between which one to go for that would work best. Now i guess my quest for finding the colors in that fabric area will be my next quest.


@Beni, YAY for Esther!!! Can't wait to see how it will turn out. Which version will you be doing? Her Nun outfit or Queen Gown?

The Virgil cosplay looks great! Such fun to see that character cosplayed.

Not a Caterina or Esther cosplayer, so no help on the cape design, but embroidery would look good.
And I'll agree with Myalchod on Schera that a smooth-textured look for that costume would be best, with maybe some contrast with textured fabric in smaller sections.

Hoping after I move to get more work done on Empire Abel over here....

@ Benihime, looking forward to seeing your Nun Esther.

My plans have changed some what since I last posted. I've become quite ill (again) and need surgery so a lot of my bigger plans like Lilith have had to be put on hold. I'm thinking of doing Lilith's Red Mars costume as I love the design so I still need to find a wig. Any help on that would be awesome. I'm also adding Sister Paula and Red Gown Astra to the list. I would love to finish my Abel costumes at some point but at the moment I'm not sure when.
