Here’s my Evil-Lyn from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe!The design is my take from a lot of different artists takes and the original show. Photo by the wonderful ocwajbaumLocation: Fanime 2014, Friday nightI’m sad that I didn’t get to wear this for more than a few hours. I had a very busy weekend between graduation on Saturday and premiering three new cosplays!That being said, it turned out really well but somethings to be redone, snaps added here and there maybe some repainting. I really want to build on this one.The major issue I had was the ram horns around my boobs kept breaking (air dry clay is really brittle, don’t use it do something high stress). So I am in the process of remaking those right now out of a different material. I really wish I had like an extra week to make my staff but that also needs to still be made. Which I think I finally figured out my approach to. Construction Notes:Made from Purple stretch satin and 4 way metallic foil spandex. The boots are made from base heels, craftfoam, and satin hot glued on. The collar was the most difficult piece to make. I first heat formed craftfoam and then used contact cement to add spandex over it. It was the same for the other silver pieces. The helmet is made of craftfoam sandwiched between worbla. I built the base in four pieces connected them together and shaped it by hand. I built the crest thingy separately.It was a lot of gesso and sanding from there. Then tons of spray paint. The cape was single piece of velvet hemmed and then hand sewn on. I also hand sewed the collar on and the custom u-plunge bra I made into the leotard. I am wearing Capizo plush band dance tights in Nude.

I was W.I.T.C.H.

keeperofthetongatooth asked:

Hi there! Sorry to bother you, but I was just wondering... For your W.I.T.C.H. Cosplays how did you create/where did you get the stockings? I'm trying to create a Cornelia cosplay and I'm having so much trouble with the tights. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hey there. No problem! You are actually my first message on tumblr so pretty cool!

I bought tights from WeLoveColors.com because they have a large selection of options. I selected the microfiber ones because they are the thickest sturdiest of their tights.

I tried one of the pairs on and marked how wide I wanted the stripes. I took them off and remarked using an average length of the other marks. I would recommend putting on the other pair just so they are stretched out the same. Mark the other tights in the same way. Cut the tights into round strips all the way up to the waist band.

Stack the tights alternating colors. And start sewing. I used my machines tricot stitch. You could use a narrow zigzag stitch if you don’t have that. The hard part about this method is that as you go up the leg it gets tighter. The stitch doesn’t stretch as much as the fabric and you end up with the michelin man look. So to address this I pre-stretched the upper rings by hand. I also put my presser foot at full pressure. Additionally I stretched the as I was sewing. In the end when I tried them on my sister I ended up ripping some the seams when I pulled on them but that was fine because of nature of the stitch is a triple lock stitch. So if one stitch breaks the whole thing isn’t going to come apart. *This does not apply to zigzag stitch

The only additional thing I have to say is watch the height of the tights on the waist you won’t need as many stripes as the tights were originally tall since the waist on the skirt is so low.

The key to this method is being super proactive about stretching the tights as you go. Stretch them way more than you think you need them to.

Thanks for asking!
