Elizabeth – Bioshock Infinite
Cons: Indiana Comic Con 2015
Since I’ve already cosplayed young Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite, I felt like I needed to do another version of her. For some crazy reason.
Corset: I started with a base white corset that I got on eBay. And since the boning was in line with the lines on the corset in her design, I used that as my guide. I sewed strips of black bias tape all around it. Since this was a cheap corset, the boning was not metal, so it was somewhat easy to sew it. SOMEWHAT. Still a bit of a pain overall.
Bolero: I bought royal blue velvet from fabric.com and followed a bolero pattern. I made my own sleeve cuff pattern, which took a few tries to get them the right length folded back. The collar miraculously stays up somehow.
Skirt: I used a simple circle skirt pattern. Okay, actually, Josh patterned this out for me because math. Math and I do not get along, haha. But I put it together and all was well. I ended up not using a zipper since the fabric was quite stretchy, so it’s super comfy.
Hoop Skirt: I knew that the velvet might make my skirt feel a little limp, despite it being a flowy circle skirt. So, I decided to get a hoop skirt to really accentuate the design. I got mine from Amazon.
Choker: Etsy purchase.
Wig: eBay find
Shoes: I used the same shoes as in my young Elizabeth costume. I found them on Ebay and love the old timey look to them.
Skyhook: This was an awesome Christmas gift. I believe my dad got it from ThinkGeek. Anyhoo, I need to mount this sucker on my wall soon because it’s so cool and detailed.
