Perfect as an 8.5" x 11" print out, this diagram is intended for the corset lover looking to learn how to lace themselves up independently. Practice makes perfect, and a visual aid makes practice much easier.

Today I donned the completed corset and headpiece for my first attempt at cosplay: Portal character GLaDOS. It required a number of nearly sleepless nights, but it was, I believe, worth it. In fact, I only finished it this morning, a mere hour before departing for Denver Comic Con for the afternoon.
Many thanks to my husband (always my “stalemate associate”) for helping me to cut boning in order to get it done in time. And to the 30 or so people at DCC who stopped me and asked for a picture, let alone the countless who I heard whispering about me while walking by.
