It starts! Ren Faire and NYCC 2014, I’m working on a Lady Margaery Tyrell cosplay.
My sewing skills are limited to buttons and holes in seams, so I usually piece together found garments for my cosplays. In the past, this has worked for Aerith Gainsborough, Wendy Testaburger, and whatever mishmoshhash of a costume+corset I have for ren faire (which is realy a mishmoshhash of about 20 different time periods, so I fit right in.)
The dress is the first step! I actually ended up going with a different infinity dress on etsy. Next step: either commissioning or finding a blue/gold/brocade top, and working on some serious makeup and hair test runs before September 6.
