So I figured I should get started on my Sybil Reisz cosplay (anything to get me to stop playing Disney Magical World. That game is way too addicting.) I figured I would start with the hat since that looks like the hardest to do.
Stopped by Kohls to get the hat and Hobby Lobby to pick up supplies. Here they are:
I started with the easiest part: painting the top part of the hat red. I used red fabric paint and a brush just to spread it all around.
Now to leave it to dry and work on the hardest part: drawing the Camarata symbol.
Fun fact about me: I can’t draw to save my life. Seriously. So I took a couple trial runs on the symbol.
Told you I suck. Let’s try again.
Well, this is as good as it’s gonna get. Time to color it in.
I used normal watercolor paint because it was just a dollar!
I got these empty button pins from the store too so I cut out the symbol and put it inside.
Final part: the “feathers”
For this part, I simply used black foam sheets and cut out 4 “feathers” 2 big, 2 small.
I used 9001 glue to stick the “feathers” and the button to the hat and volia!
Left it to dry for a couple minutes and started flaunting it!
Will work on the dress and belt later. Much later.
PAX East is in 2 days, 22 hrs and 48 minutes. I’ve had dreams about every cosplay disaster imaginable over the past couple weeks. So naturally I’m freaking the heck out. But here is Zero Suit wig and some props. Today shall be spent doing last minute prep.
