1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Han Solo Cosplay on: February 18, 2015 03:56:47 AM
I recently went to a convention, and a group of us decided that it was about time we did a Star Wars cosplay. So I decided that I would be Han Solo and my husband should be Leia.



You can see the stripes better in this one:



My husband is the one on the right!

I made the waistcoat, trousers and holster from scratch, the shirt was one of my husbands. What you can't see is that I used some Star Wars fabric to line the waistcoat with too!

Thank you!

And it was his idea to do that costume! Unfortunately the zip broke, so I'm going to have to see if I can repair it as I'm sure we'll be doing this again sometime.

A group of my friends decided to do a Kill Bill costume theme for a convention recently. Unfortunately I didn't get many photos, but here are a few from some friends:





And a group shot:



This was a completely new experience for me - I really had no idea about kimonos or how to wear them, but I think it turned out pretty well in the end!

Oh, and the lovely blonde in the PVC catsuit is my darling husband  Wink

That is stunning, and it fits you perfectly. You are an inspiration!  Smiley

Thanks for all the lovely comments!  Smiley

I got the fabric from J&O Fabrics: http://www.jandofabrics.com/

I'm very impressed with their service - it only took the fabric about a week to get to me in the UK from the US, and their shipping charges are very reasonable too.

A convention I went to recently had the Saturday night theme of Marvel vs DC, so I decided I needed to make myself a new dress:



And an action shot:

This is amazing! I love all the details you have put in to it, and your sewing is incredibly neat - that looks better than a lot of professionally made hoodies  Smiley

Thanks for all your lovely comments!

The front is closed using swing hooks, and the back has lacing loops. Here is a photo of the corset in progress which shows these:

I made this outfit for a Vampire Ball I went to. The skirt and jacket are from the Simplicity 2172 pattern, and the corset is from the Laughing Moon Dore pattern.





And with a friend:

Hi mangajude,

It did take me quite a while to finish it, but that's because I was being lazy, and hate doing hand sewing! It's a reasonably straight-forward pattern, although sewing the fabric for the frills was a complete PITA, which is why I put off finishing it for a while.

You might want to consider adding shoulder pads too - I put mine in before I completely sewed the lining to the main fabric, so they are in between the two layers. Otherwise I felt the shoulders just didn't sit right. I guess this depends on what fabric you are using though.

Last weekend, I started on the corset I'm making to go with it, but I've only got three weeks now before the Vampire Ball! I'll post more pictures of the completed outfit after that - I'll try to get some decent pictures taken too.
