11  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Three Eyed Raven cosplay on: August 01, 2016 07:13:13 PM

I have awesome friends. Let me just start with that. One of my friends just got married and when she and her now-husband were deciding how to approach their wedding day, they decided prove their awesomeness by making it a Game of Thrones themed wedding  Cheesy I, of course, had to meet their awesomeness by planning out some sort of costume...

A note: I really can't sew clothes unfortunately. It is one of my crafting blind spots. So unlike two of my other friends who are epic and sewed their costumes from scratch (!!!) I set about procuring items (much like a raven would) and making accessories to complete my outfit.

So I brainstormed for a while on what I could reasonably accomplish with my limited sewing skills, while staying in the theme of GoT. And finally decided to do a representation of the Three-Eyed Raven, slightly more glam than grunge since it was for a wedding...

I acquired a black skirt, black leather underbust corset, and fringe feather neck drape (for my top I just wore a plain black tank top I already owned). I decided I needed something for my hair and made a feathered fascinator for that. I also made a simple pendant necklace with a double claw focal piece and an eye inset in the middle. Honesty time: it was a super cheap plastic eye, but surprisingly looks pretty good. I'm never one to pass a bargin  Cheesy

Then to give the skirt a little oomph, I made a super super simple tulle wrap skirt to go over.

And lastly, just for fun, I bought a tree temporary tattoo and then embellished further with some red sharpie for the weirwood leaves  Grin

I love how it turned out - not literal at all, but still capturing the flavor of the character I think.

Here's a glut of pictures I have showing off the different elements. The first is probably the best overall picture of the entire costume (ignore the messy background)..

And here's a picture of some of my friends who were epic and sewed their own costumes!!! Left is Lady Tyrell and middle is Lady Sansa. Right is The Unburnt! Daenerys - she originally was going to try to sew her own dress but ended up buying this one instead - glad to know I was not alone in that boat.

And because I am a nerd I realized that I had all the perfect wrapping supplies to keep the wedding present wrapped on theme! Red and blue are the bride's house colors (Tully represent!) and the snow is because WINTER IS COMING!!!

The thing about this swap.

Hi sheepBlue Smiley

Haha, if it helps, you are not alone in this sentiment.  Cheesy

I'm not sure what I have to put in my shop, but I know there's some things kicking around my craft room. A scrappy handspun shawl for one. I love all the new folk that are going to join! It's always a much funner swap when it's lively  Cheesy
