After attending SDCC (San Diego Comic Con) this year and meeting Garrett Sander, creator and design manager of Monster High I knew I HAD to do this group cosplay for Fan Expo Canada 2011. Initially the friends I usually do a group cosplay at Fan Expo Canada were all going to join in this Monster High epicness (I'm the official costume maker for the group) but a large number of them couldn't attend this year! Regardless of that, we represented with a group of 3 and I don't think it could have be more epic Smiley  

This is the lovely Draculaura in my original Fearleading uniform costume design. I made the uniform from scratch, even hand screening the trims. Many many many yards of trim! I also created a vector logo in Illustrator for the MH logo on the uniform chest. Draculaura made her own wig and did her own f/x makeup, all for her first time. I think she looks great!
I made the earrings from scratch too, free-handing the design on shrinking plastic and then making them into earrings. If you've seen any of my work before you know how much I like to play in the area between 2 and 3 dimensional props so I liked the idea of using these for her costume instead of real safety pins Smiley

No, it was really simple just using different store bought pieces (skirt, black longsleeve, pink tank made to look like her vest) and we made a lacy jabbot, so I didn't think it was worth posting.  I really like the monster high and have spent way too much time (and money) searching it out for her.  I re-did a barbie house to be a monster high house, but forgot to post any pics on here
