Nightlight armor!

These aren’t nearly all the pieces but I do officially have Nightlight completed! I’m so happy I got his lights to work! I wanted to wear him for SDCC this year, but the morning of I found out that attaching the armor to the torso piece underneath made it too hard to breathe. Lesson learned! At least now I know the issues to fix for our next convention! [And maybe now that I have the time, I can add lights to the wig as well >u>]

Another post that’s massively late! We don’t have any photoshoot pics of these costumes yet and we don’t know if we will be fixing these costume up and wearing them again to get some, but here are some shots of our ROTG Yule Ball costumes worn to Holiday Matsuri 2013! All the photos are by tigershotproductions from the Costume Contest.

The Jack and Tooth designs were based off of the-guardian-of-fun’s designs and then we tried to mimic the style by designing our own costumes for North and Nightlight! We had a lot more detail work that we wanted to add to all of these costumes and simply ran out of time, hopefully we can fix these up one day and get some proper pictures of them.

This was our first time cosplaying as a full, cohesive group and tackling such extensive designs. The ball gown, feather bustle (full of about 200 hand dyed turkey feathers), feather headdress, wings and jewelry were a definite challenge for us. The rest of the costumes were also entirely handmade by each respective cosplayer. We won Best Group in the contest which was so amazing, we were so happy to receive that and to see fans excited about our costumes!

My Nightlight wig arrived today. It is in much need of styling, and I won’t get to it for a while, but I’m pleased with what I have to work with.  It’s a the “Diamond Pants Hurt Feelings” style from The Five Wits.

The shortness of the back and bottom layers are perfect for Nightlight’s non-wispy hair, while the super long top layer nd bangs are perfect for making the wispy twirls. The fibers are also very nice and soft and wonderful to touch.
