Alice certainly did Eurogamer and saw my favourite cosplay of the day, Little Sister!
The fake blood is on and I think it really makes the dress, a lot happier with it now 🙂
Nearly at the finish line! I quickly knocked up a simple pinafore pattern using my dress as a guide. I then cut out my pattern and stitched it all together. I made the pockets and created the design using a … Continue reading
I had already made my skull brooch, so now I just had to make a bow to attach it to. The bow was made out of white cotton and I put some craft wire inside to hold its shape.
I got some black boots from eBay and made some buckles from mouse mats and silver spray paint. I used a glue gun to stick some ribbon round the boots and glue on the buckles.
I used a couple of red shades of nail polish to make the blood effect on the blade.
I then cut a triangle piece of foam and painted it gold for the handle.
I then glued this to the handle along with some string and used a gold pen to paint the string and draw on the rest of the design.
The finished Vorpal Blade looks like this – i’m chuffed 🙂
The spray painting commences. I stuck the transfer on to the blade one side at a time with prit stick and masked off round the edges.
Well while I wait for the blade handle to be well glued before spray painting I decided to move on to the actual blade.
I made the template by getting an image of the real blade and importing it to Photoshop. If you don’t have Photoshop try Pixlr I created a new layer and used the pen tool to trace the outline of the design, I used this new layer as my template.
I then cut out the design using a sharp knife.
I will stick this plastic template onto the blade and use silver spray paint to create an etched look (hopefully).
