Day 5 of #31DIYsTilHalloween: Blair from Soul Eater! I wore her to #ottawacomiccon in May and it was so much fun to bring her back out for Halloween!

For this cosplay I wore black spandex bike shorts, my favorite black velvet shrug, that faux leather crossover halter top you guys have seen a million times, my Venus Cage Bra from @agashibychristinao (thanks again babe!), my crescent moon choker from @sixfeetdeep_ (use coupon code “SCREAMQUEEN” for 13% off your order!), @pleasershoes @demonia.shoes PVC thigh high platform boots, my 20" Petite Josephine corset, and my DIY Blair hat!

I’ve gotten tons of questions about how I made the hat and I wanted to do a tutorial but there’s no way I’m taking that thing apart and putting it back together. I’ve been making giant witch/scarecrow hats for different cosplays for years and it becomes really easy after awhile! I made it almost exactly the same way I made my scarecrow hat from Day 4 (see earlier posts for that one).
I started with a wide brim black felt hat and built a base with newspaper and plastic bags, duct tape and pins. I wrapped black cotton fabric around the outside and pinned it in place. The spiral is made from gardening wire and duct tape, it took a couple hours to get it positioned the way I wanted it. You really have to just mess with it and keep reshaping everything until it looks the way you want! The white band is white scrap vinyl and black paint, pinned in place. And that’s it!

Let me know what you think of Day 5!

Becoming Blair

Don’t let ANYONE tell you that you can’t cosplay something.  That you are too short, too ugly, too fat, or have the wrong body type or face shape. 

I was told all these things when I decided to cosplay Blair from Soul Eater.  I still did it anyway.  And I look badass.

Don’t listen to those voices that tell you you can’t.  If you love a character and want to cosplay them, screw body types and just do it! You will be glad you did.

Made a cosplay tutorial! 

There doesn’t seem to be any other tutorials for Blair’s boots so I hope my video can be of some assistance ^_^
