    The Hunger Games costumes

    I'm getting very desperate now looking for this fabric... :cry All the pleats I found don't have the right pattern, and having a fabric custom-pleated would be very expensive. I don't want to go too far from the original, because the main thing I loved about this costume was the fabric - the...

    Hunger Games - Effie Trinket Backstage Dress

    Super nice! I have my eyes set on replicating this costume - did you take any additional shots, from the back or from some details of the costume? That would be very helpful... In any case, congrats on this great purchase, I'm drooling over it right now too :-D

    Mirror mirror on the wall... Ravenna build thread (Snow White and the Huntsman)

    Oh wow, I completely forgot I had opened a thread for this costume! :$ After some more research I started sewing early this year and finished by the end of September - yes, this really was the most work I've ever put into a costume... First I made a simple white dress and constructed the golden...

    Legolas and Tauriel: Desolation of Smaug

    Wow, I'm impressed! Love the details on Tauriel's costume (like on the bracers) and the vinyl scales for Legolas. Very nice, can't wait to see the finished costumes! Dragon*Con is around the corner...:)

    Mirror mirror on the wall... Ravenna build thread (Snow White and the Huntsman)

    I don't know if any of you have seen "Snow White and the Huntsman". Not the best movie, but the visuals and costumes were amazing. This was the wedding dress worn by the evil queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron). It stands out with the shoulder piece, and I love the details (lots of embroidery...

    Re: MadAlice's 2012 Halloween Costume Contest Entry - Lady van Tassel from Sleepy Hol Thank you! :) Yes it took me months to do this and a lot of nerves... I don't really have high hopes for the contest though, since it's "only" a sewn dress - no foam or fiberglass. :lol So most people probably...

    MadAlice's 2012 Halloween Costume Contest Entry - Lady van Tassel from Sleepy Hollow

    I'm still a costuming newbie (bought my first sewing machine last year), so this project made me a little nervous: It's Lady van Tassel from Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow". Katrina's stepmother and the villain of the movie - in a full-on rococo gown. :love I started by constructing original...

    The RPF 2012 Halloween Costume Contest - WINNERS ANNOUNCED

    Re: *** the RPF 2012 Halloween Costume Contest *** Hey there, quick question. :$ Can the background of the gallery pic be photoshopped? I can only find pictures of myself in the costume standing in front of ugly convention center walls. :lol Thank you!

    Titanic (Pink Coat)

    Oh nooooo, sorry for making you homesick - I'm not even living in the Bay Area anymore (have to update my profile). I only lived there last year and am now back home in Germany. I miss that area so much, it's beautiful and has a huge cosplay community. We don't really have that over here...:cry...
