This trapdoor is all that keeps me from stabbing you! Just wait till it opens again!

Beautiful cosplay! It is just so detailed and perfect!

I'm hoping to cosplay the Trickster, from Revelations MP soon...
I doubt it'll be anywhere near as good as this Smuggler costume though.
(or your Trickster. o.o )

Haha I'm sure you can do muuuuch better! ^_^ But if you need help, give me a shout, ok?

Awesome costume! It's so wonderfully detailed. I want to cosplay the Smuggler but I'm not so sure I could make it look this authentic. Great job :D

Thank you for your kind words, and I'm pretty sure you'll be able to, and it will be much better then mine! ^_^ If you have any questions I can help with, give me a shout, ok?

aww I dunno - yours looks pretty damn good! :worship:

I will rack your brains though - did you use any sort of pattern and alter it? I'm probably going to have the hardest time with the vest me thinks. Pattern maker I'm not, but I can alter a pattern accordingly I reckon. The shorts I've seen a pattern for, and I can probably figure out the cloak. I'll take any tips you're willing to throw at me!:blush:

Sorry, I don't use patterns so I can't point you to a good one. I guess any vest would be a good starting point, though.
As a tip, don't make the hood to small like mine (or well, I just wish I made it a little bigger)

I need your help! Oh allmighty successfull cosplayer. I'm doing a cosplay for a con in say...3 months.
I need help, how did you do the bodice,and other general supposibly leather parts? I don't think i'm doing the ordinary one as i have the underwhirt and it's a tunic, so i'll be doing the other kind, any help? pwease?

Haha It's probably quite obvious when I started making the Smuggler there were just two images! XD

I've never seen that artwork, and I can't remember her having those 'flaps' in game? Ah well, either way, the 'leather' bits are actually pleather (fake leather), which I came across once, years back, used for pants for Remus from Undead Knights, then cut up for Lia... weird, I know, but it was the perfect colour and look I was going for... I used ribbon and bias tape (?? Not sure if that's the right name for it in English, but it's what pops up if I google it!) for the golden details on it.

If you need any specific help, please shout. Sadly I never use patterns or I'd share them! ^_^;

Lol it's ok (english isn't my first language either, it's Portuguese) but yeah, i was thinking about doing it for a con and i saw your awesome cosplay and was all -bow-

But yeah, thanks! I thought the bodice was actually some sort of cloth because when i looked at it it had a slight shiny detail like satin, but it looks good anyways,so i'll try that, thank you!
