Cosplayer Dokudel > Costume of Pretear from Pretear
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Firelily asked a lot of her chick friends if they wanted to join in on her epic Pretear group, I couldn't refuse we got to pick which versions we wanted and I chose Light. I felt the design was the best out of all of them.
Tiara was a white craft foamie I shaped with an exacto knife. Then painted it gold and made a resin gem for the top. Secured on with bobbi pins.
Wig was from Fantasy Sheep. I feel the wig is a little too dark but it compliments my skin tone as I am slighty tanned. I had Firelily help style the wig while I wore it.
The cape? Thing is made of casa satin for the salmon pink and casa crepe for the gold. Theres a interfacing in the center of it to try to make it stiff. I dont think it was stiff enough but it did the job. I also made the cape shorter to my liking. Then the edge of the cape is gold painted on.
The dress is white heavy casa satin. Only added to snap on the neck. I had the dress darted and fitted which I hardly do with my costumes. The designs were top stitched and hemmed.
Gloves I modified from my Steampunk cosplay gloves. I also just added gold fabric paint to the design.
The shoes were borrowed from Firelily.
Took 2 days of actual construction for this costume. I can see myself actually wearing this costume again. Worn to AUSA 2010 on Friday.
