Happy New Years and good bye 2018

Another year and a bunch of more costumes. I was actually planning on taking it a little easy this year, but I think I failed. But anyways, let me present the costume projects of 2018

First up was Casual Brigitte. 
And I plan to make a more complete version of Brigitte in 2019, and I have already starting planning the build for her shield

Hermione Granger
I went to another Harry Potter in Concerts viewing and dressed up as Hermione (closet cosplay). Well, now I really want to make a full Hermione cosplay too. After my trip to London in October I bought a couple of official Griffindor merchandise, so this is happening in 2019.

Padme Battle Outfit
Padme was part of the 100NOK cosplay challenge from 2017, but I never got around to finish up December, but I finally finished it this summer :)

Max from Life is Strange
I really love my Max cosplay, it is so simple and so gorgeous in one. And I got to have a truly amazing photoshoot with Rojano Photo.

Holly Golightly
Another closet cosplay, this time the reason was fancy afternoon tea with A Diary of a Superherogirl and we would get a discount at local fabric store if we showed up in cosplay.

Dr. Angela Zielger
Or casual doctors outfit Mercy from the Overwatch comics. I had an amazing shoot with Pharamony as Moira.

Asari mom
At Torucon I was my sisters assistant on stage for her performance, and she needed me to be a feminine Asari. And we also took part in a really cool cosplay video project led by Katrix Media. check out the video here.

All aboard the Hogwarts Express
More Hogwarts, I got to travel on this old gorgeous steam engine train during a Harry Potter event, and since my house is Ravenclaw I put together a uniform for the occasion. 

Commander Shepard
Another closet cosplay. I was assisting my sister and Karing Olava during a photoshoot and threw together this casual femShep look. I really love to make freckles. 

One of the larger projects this year, I really enjoyed working on Symmetra. I started with it with no deadline and ended up wearing it at Banzaicon. And I won first place in their cosplay competition. 

Cruella DeVille
The theme for Banzaicon 2018 was Vaillains and I knew there were going to be several Disney villains present and I wanted to join the party. So I made a Cruella DeVille costume. Yes the fur is real, I inherited it from my Grandmother.

Princess Nuala
This years biggest costume project was Princess Nuala from Hellboy 2, which was the costume I entered EuroCosplay with. I love her so much, but this was an incredible hard costume to make. The writeup about how I made the costume and my experience at EuroCosplay will come later. 

Frankie Stein
Ah, Halloween <3 Every year I entertain at the childrens ward at Riskhospitalet (They arrange a Halloween party). And the kids actually like that I come in a scary costume (ofc avoiding makeup that simulates trauma wound). My costume is inspired by The Bride of Frankenstein.

And my other Halloween costume was inspired by vampires .

Marzipan pig
Every year I attend a pub crawl with my colleagues, this year I went as a marzipan pig. I will make a tutorial for the nose later (totally gonna make a Penelope cosplay)

Mary Poppins
And the last costume effort of 2018 was a new closet cosplay, this time of Mary Poppins for the premiere in Oslo. It was amazing, so many kids who commented that I looked like Mary Poppins, and now I really want to make a full cosplay of her. (well, she does have similar taste in fashion)

Happy new year! Look forward to make more stuff in 2019.

Cruella DeVille

This is my take on a lightly younger version of Cruella DeVille. The fur coat is real, I inherited it from my grandmother. And people started singing her theme song everytime all the time. 

Teleporter online - Symmetra Cosplay

I love sci fi inspired weapons and there is something about Symmetra's gun that reminds me of the Portal Gun. Portal always have a special place in my heart as it was the first thing I ever cosplayed from. And Symmetra's teleporter looks a little like a portal <3

So yes, I am making a Symmetra cosplay and with the release of the Peacock skin my choice was easy. I am also in luck as Kamui has made this costume before and has published a tutorial. Check it out more more information. 

The Gun

The Head piece

The Dress
This fabric is not stretchy at all, so I added several darts to make it form fitting (sorry that some of the photos are screenshots from IG) The patterns are heat transfer vinyl. 

The details on the chest are sculpted, molded in silicone and casted in resin. 

The Arm

To get the oil slick iridescent paint that matches the fabric I used three different metallic spray paints. 

The Stockings
I sewed the top in a skin colored spandex, so the leggings wouldn't slip down. The golden part is sewed from a less stretchable pleather, so I added a zipper in the back and made them as a separate part. 

The Shoes

Final look
