Aloy – Horizon Zero Dawn

Aloy was a special project to me. It was the first project where I started making tutorials from the very beginning and had people actually follow the project step by step! Turns out that that was super inspirational and what kept me going when this costume made me want to ragequit 😉 The skirt is made from 6 flaps of real hide. The bags are also real leather. This costume took between 250 – 400 hours to make (I’m serious, I lost count).   I am currently working on her spear and might even attempt her bow in the future 🙂

Video tutorial: Aloy’s bracers from Horizon Zero Dawn

Well, my first project with worbla is officially happening! Back when I started working on Aloy, I picked her outfit for multiple reasons. Partially because I just loved the overall look, but also because it presented some nice challenges for me like working with leather and making armour. After putting it off for 2,5 months because I was so busy on the costume, the time had finally come for me to start working on the bracers! Click here to see the video 🙂

Yennefer of Vengerberg

Photographer: Peter Krul     My Yennefer of Vengerberg!   I LOVE The Witcher and I have the biggest soft spot for CD Projekt Red, the game’s developers. When I played The Witcher 3, I was pretty much on team Yen ever since she first showed up. I love her strong personality, intelligence and obvious beauty. I just love how she never makes any excuses for who she is and does whatever she thinks is best, even if people will hate her for it.   When I saw the DLC costume, I was sold. I HAD to make this. I made the skirt and the corset from scratch, dyed and altered the blouse and made the feather trim. This is one of my favourite costumes to date, mostly because I love this character so, so much.

Aloy necklace tutorial – 8 stranded braid

So, I recently started working on Aloy’s costume from Horizon: Zero Dawn. I am in love with her design and her costume provides some nice challenges for me (working with EVA foam and leather, mostly). I figured, seeing as not many people have made this costume yet, that it’d be nice to post a tutorial every now and then. Today I will be going over Aloy’s braided necklace. This necklace is made from braided blue suede. This is what you’ll need: 8 strands of suede or fake suede. Each strand should ideally be about 2,5 m long. I bought four packs with 5 metres of chord and cut those in half. A jump rope or cable. You’ll have to braid around something. The cheapest available option for me was to buy 3 metres of jump rope at my local toy store. Pick something that’s not too thick and that has plenty of flexibility. A fastener. Now, I was lazy and used key rings I still had lying around. On the plus side, I think this is actually something that Aloy herself might do as there are probably no jewelry fasteners where she lives 😉 It doesn’t matter though, your hair or wig will cover it. TIME. The finished braid (without the leather accents) took me 8 hours. Yes. 8 HOURS. This will take a lot of time, even if you’re faster than me. Now for the actual braiding. Tie the chords to the key chain and section them off onto two…
