It's the second costume I've made entirely by myself, and it's the first time I've got to the final round of a cosplay competition!
En gang møtte jeg deg på innspilling,
Da hadde du en helt annen innstilling,
Til å mekke kostymer og sånn,
Du sa dine syskills var på bånn
Men nå har pipa en annen lyd,
Du syr nå din egen pryd,
Du lager alt fra bunnen sjæl,
Og nå har du fått ny og forbedret tæl
Jeg liker dette fordi det er drama,
Jeg liker dette fordi det er Italia-sama,
Uniformen er av en annen verden
Lykke til videre på ferden
The hat is basically just 4 square pieces sewn together and decorated. The pants is made from a pattern from 1950 that my grandmother gave to me, but I don't have the pattern scanned. It's just a normal pair of pants though with some extra space on the thighs
I love how accurate Italyīs uniform looks here, itīs simply cool.
First of all, thanks a lot! And that's a lot of questions!
- Yes I made the cosplay myself
- I made it with fabric and a sewing machin, good patterns and a lot of time, practice and patience
- I bought the boots from taobao, the gloves and belt from a local store, the lenses from pinkyparadise and the wig from ebay, oh and the crop from a store selling horse and riding-equipment.
- No I didn't pay anything for the set, because the photo was taken during a cosplaycompetition.
- I don't know exactly what camera as it belongs to my brother, but I know it's a Nikon DSLR type.
- To plan a photoshoot you just have to find someone that wants to take a photo of you, and a location, and.. done. I usually find a costume and a location first, and then ask my friends or family, and the poses are just improvised.
- The men in the background are the commentators, they tell the audience who I am, what I'm cosplaying and stuff like that.
So this is NOT from a photoshoot, but from a cosplaycompetition, that's why I'm on a stage and there's people in the background with a microphone
