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 🙂

Harley Quinn – Batman Arkham Knight

  Photographer: Charlaine Kreuning Photographer Unknown. Is this your photograph? Please contact me asap! Photographer: Bas Eenink Photographer: Bas Eenink I started construction on this costume somewhere late in 2014 and finished it in March 2015. I have always loved the edginess of Arkham Harley, the pleather and obvious BDSM references in her looks. When I saw Jessica Nigri cosplay the Arkham Knight version, I knew what I had to do 😉 Everything, apart from the corset, was hand made or adapted by me in some way. The bra is a Marlies Dekkers bra I repurposed by covering both cups with different fabric. The harness is made of two layers of pleather glued together, stainless steel rivets and O rings. The wig is a Chibi by Arda Wigs, dip dyed with markers. The skirt is hand made and features 3 layers and loads of lace that was hand sewn to the bottom. It’s made of a very thick and heavy cotton blend. The leggings were two pairs of regular leggings I cut up and sewed together. The diamonds on them were made with DecorFin fabric dye. The studs were attached by hand. —————————————————– Character: Harley Quinn Series: Batman Arkham knight Estimated construction time: Over 100 hours.
