"Are you ready for this? I don't think you're ready for this... ARE YOU READY?"
For Acen 2012 I have decided to cosplay as Mad Moxxi from Borderlands. Here is where i will post my progress and ask for opinions and criticism on what I have completed so far. I will update this thread regularly with my progress and photos of the costume.
"And pop goes the weasel. I love it when things pop!"
I just started this costume, and I need to go out tonight to buy fabric and hit up some resale shops in search of bits and pieces. This will be my most expensive cosplay to date.
For Moxxi's ringleader jacket, I am going to use my corset, and build the jacket over it. I am using the corset to keep her figure and so nothing looks bulky.
Red Hat with striped trim - $7
Queen of Hearts playing card
Red Ringleader coat with missing button and striped cuffs, collar, and yellow trim - $60 Corset underneath - $125 Boots - $60 Striped Stockings - $10 Ripped fishnets - $10 Black Fingerless Gloves - $10
Megaphone - Lampshade and hairdryer - $15
Gun holster - Rubi <3
Black Velvet Choker
Black and White striped
Brass buttons (blue, 2 sizes)
All has been purchased.
Need to sew 4 white buttons on the cuffs of the jacket.
Need to add the Queen of Hearts and feather to the hat.
Need to assemble the megaphone.
* I have decided to buy a with this year. I found this one, and it looks pretty close, but I feel there might be something better. If you know of any online wig shops that have good reviews please let me know ASAP. Also what do you think of my current wig choice?
* Any suggestions for making her holster? I don't want to buy a cheap dress-up one. I am already spending an arm and leg on this, so I might as well go all out.
