1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: MORGANA - League of Legends ++PICS++ on: November 05, 2011 09:37:20 PM
I love this. I am such a huge fan of non-conventional costumes for children and this one takes the cake. I love, love, love the wings!! Your daughter looks like she was really working this costume!

I agree about the non-conventional costumes, we always shoot for something different each year. And thank you so much about the wings, I was really nervous since it was my first time making them. And yes you have know idea how my daughter was working the costume, she loves this character very much and has studied her for the past year it seems! lol

That is realllly fabulous! Great job..  I love the wings, I think the cheese cloth totally worked and you should be proud of those gauntlets cause they are fantastic! well done!\

Thank you so much! I think the cheesecloth worked very well too since I was looking for that tattered and torn look with out all the weight. I normally buy cheesecloth and dye it for my Halloween decorations and I liked the look of it so that is how I came up with the idea. Thank you once again!

Hello fellow craftsters!!! This is my entry, Morgana from the League of Legends online game.  I made this costume for my daughter this year and she absolutely loved it. I will be honest, I was hesitant about making it, but glad I did. I think my little girl did a fine job of picking out what she wanted to be. I did my research on the internet and only found 2 others that has made a Morgana costume. So I consider it an original, a nice choice.

Items I crafted:

Bra - Constructed from a recycled woman's dress that was bought at the good will. Had to deconstruct and cut it to fit properly for a 10 year old. Added gold piping, elastic, and fasteners.

Gauntlets - Made from scratch. Complete with detail stitching, eyelets and ribbon. (These are my favorite item in the costume)

Skirt - Made from scratch. NO PATTERN! It has three layers of twill fabric in order to capture the same look that Morgan had. Distressed with paint to give that tattered and torn look. I also has to starch the bottom area because when Morgana walks, her skirt does not flow like a normal dress would with a train. Its very stiff and intimidating as she is almost floating across the floor.

Belt - Made from scratch. I had some black material in my stash that had a leather appearance, so I chose this and had to paint it with a dry brush technique with some green paint. It was my best option since I looked everywhere to find a green faux fabric with no success.

Buttons - Bought 50 cheap buttons on ebay. Filled the holes, painted, distressed, and sealed them. These took a while to achieve.

Headband - Braided red leather from the jewelry section in wal mart. Not shown in the last picture since that was taken on a different night and I forgot to put it on her.

Wings - My first ever! Made from scratch too.  Made with gauged wire, foam core board, elastic covered with ribbon for the shoulder pieces, a velcro elastic strap that was attached underneath to balance out the weight. And then some hand dyed cheesecloth that I glued on with a handy glue gun.  They came out exactly how I wanted them too since they are a key item to her look.

Things I didnt craft - The leotard, the wig, and the hoop skirt beneath the Morgana skirt.

Anyway, I hope you guys like it and crossing my fingers it will be an inspiration for someone else try in the next year to come. Hope everybody had a wonderful Halloween too and please have a nice day! Thanks for looking!!   Smiley

(Oddly I made this Morgana costume for my daughter Lauren, but I also have a daughter named Morgan. Assuming I was destined to make this costume? I think so! Cheesy)







This one shows the bra better:


And the true Morgana! (My only picture reference)

I think its a wonderful idea. I too had the idea of doing this but with a cheap baby doll. I have seen zombabies on halloween sites at 20 bucks or so and I thought I could make one I liked so much better. But.....when I went shopping for a baby doll my 8 year wouldnt let me buy one for this purpose....lol! She had a fit! But your doll, is very nice, and creepy. Homemade is so much better, its awesome when you put so much time and love into it in order for it to look so disgusting! lol Great job!!!!  Grin
