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 )

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!

You made the entire outfit yourself? Mind giving me some pointers? I plan on making one for the Chicago Comicon next month and need to get started soon! And yours looks so good.

This is an amazing cosplay, I love the detail!! I love the Smuggler, shes my fave too :D But I'm curious to know how long it took to make and how difficult it was to do? (bcz I'm thinking of cosplaying her for a con, which is a few months away). The cosplay world needs more Lia's! XD

Woah! Thank you so much! Yes Lia is awesome!

This took me quite a while, but if you still have some months left I'm sure you can do it! I guess it was 50+ hours or so in the end. I wouldn't say it's difficult, but it's not a walk in the park either. If you have any questions, let me know.
Sadly I don't use patterns, or I'd share them.

Thank you so much!

ElizabethEmily Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011
Oh~ Hellequin is my second favourite~ I wish that I could make her costume, but I kind of fail at sewing. So far I've made a vest similar to hers, but otherwise, I'm kind of failing.

I shall. I have to get a camera first, 'cause mine broke, but I'll post a picture of the whole costume once I get it done. I'm starting my work on it in about three weeks. But I have to sew it by hand, so it will take a while.

could you maybe give me the total cost of your outfit? like how much you paid to make it? im thinkning of making either the smuggler or the hellquin and id like to know how much cash i have to save up
Reply
:iconorochimarisu:
Orochimarisu Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Both costumes can and probably will be quite expensive (as I'm in the progress on making a Hellequin as well)

I think for the Smuggler (without boots and wig, as I already had those) the total would be.. somewhere between 80-90 euros 110-125 dollar (give or take)
Hellequin has been a bit cheaper, but still at a 70-80 euro (90-105 dollar) and this all depends on if you find fabric as cheap as possible or not.

I hope this somewhat helps you save enough money! ^_^ (please keep in mind, it all depends on how much fabric usually costs in the USA compared to Europe! >.<

I was in total awe by it. :love: Now I really want to make an Assassins Creed cosplay as well. xD Everytime I see you walking with one I'm just stunned by how awesome it looks and how much it seems like you just came walking out of the game. xD It's amazing!!! :D
