I confess: I haven’t actually worn this costume yet. It’s finished and has been sitting on my cosplay rack for almost two years. I was going to wear it but the wig I bought was three different colors. I am either going to purchase a new wig (that comes in one piece and therefore one color) or borrow my friend Ali’s wig.
I’ve cosplayed from Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler before, but it was always as Ciel. At some point I got tired of cosplaying males and decided to do more female costumes. At first I didn’t like Elizabeth’s character but I loved her clothes. This one stood out the most for me.
The original image I used made the dress look more teal so that was the color I went with. I made this costume purely for the cuteness factor. I love the frills and ruffles and all the little details. The hat was so cute, and all the crown designs were pretty. But I hate the fabric I used. It was the perfect color and the perfect weight; it did really well on the screenprinting. It drapes nicely and flows when I want it to.
It broke 4 needles. FOUR.
Again, I don’t remember the patterns I used since I did a LOT of modifications. I think the end result came out really well. It fits well but I haven’t really worn it around.
And the hat.
After all the work I put into this thing, I hope I get to wear it soon. Maybe at Nashi Con 2014.
