Another year of cosplay documented - 2016 is over

Every year I write a sum up of what I have made and experienced through that year. This is mostly for myself, as a diary, because after a while it is not always as easy to remember which year I made what costume.
What a year!

Fallout upgrade 
This is not a totally new cosplay, but I ended up creating a whole new look with the shaved head so I still think it deserved a spot on my "highlights of the year".

  • I was a guest at both Advik and Geekcore
  • Visited the childrens ward at Rikshospitalet
  • I made a Birthday sword
  • I was on the NO/DK team for Overwatch all stars

Game Developer Barbie

I loved playing with Barbie dolls as a kid, and I was encouraged to design and sew my own clothes for the dolls, making them everything from princesses to jungle and underwater explorers (we had a huge garden). 

I also love that Barbie is now a game developer. Both the style and "life style" of this dolls matches me irl pretty good. So closet cosplay it is.

I even got photographer Ice of Tin to shoot some laidback cafe photos.

Ice Queen

When you have a lot of leftover Polymorph you need to make up new projects, or I do at least. So I though why not make a glowing Ice crown. The Polymorph was sculpted around LEDs to make it glow :)

And since I now have a crown, why not make an entire Ice Queen costume. I have a feeling I have named a lot of my OC characters something Queen, that seems to be my style ;)

Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite

A few years back I made a cosplay of Elizabeth from Bioshock, but I never got around to do a proper photoshoot. But during Metrocon I got together with wonderful photographer Tom Vidar Johannesen. I also haven't made a proper tutorial for this costume, as I had no idea what I was doing when making it (it is not well made). So all I have of tutorials are for the Brooch and Salt bottle.

Summer version. 
I also did a summer version of Elizabeth, No jacket and a "tie around the waist" skirt. 

Summer Salt bottle ;)

Bombshell Wonder Woman

There was something about the design of this Wonder Woman that caught my attention. She's sexy, but not vulgar and has a kick ass attitude. It also seemed fairly simple, making it a perfect Sunday outfit for a convention.
Official art from DC Comics. 

The head band was just sewed from two pieces on interfaced cotton, with the red star sewed on. The stars are embroidered appliques I found in Japan. 

I had an old red shirt which I never use (expect this one time when i cosplayed Poison Ivy). So I added a white collar and an emblem in front to change it into my wonder woman shirt. 

Emblem was made by sewing red stretch fabric over a yellow felt piece.  

Shorts were sewn from a modified Burda pattern, with zipper in the back.

The belt buckle was laser cut from plywood. Glued together with wood glue, spray painted, airbrushed and highlighted. It is attached to a elastic belt. 

I made a vector file with the pattern for the bracers and then laser cut it into worbla. 

The worbla was wrapped around a foam piece.

Heated to shape

Silver basecoat.

And black acrylic weathering. 

I actually had the perfect shoes for this cosplay, except they were white. I have never tried to dye shoes before and took this as a challenge. My first attempt was with synthetic leather spray color. Too bad one can wasn't enough. Good news, the color held really well once applied. 

I finished the coloring with my airbrush and acrylic paint. The white parts were glued on.  

The final look
