Selene Halloween Cosplay

Let me start out with some honestly. The pictures of this costume suck. They do not do it justice... I spent hours embroidering the pattern into the front of the costume, and you just can't tell in my crappy bathroom-mirror-mobile-camera pics. Someday soon I shall update this with amazing photos of me looking like a total BAMF Selene, but for now... Ya know :)

Supplies List: ContactsWig (Lace Front)Boots, Catsuit (will be remaking my own soon), Corset SuppliesFangs, Leather (local fabric warehouse), Buckles (Joann's), Pattern (self made)

This is just one of the many reference images I used for my costume. I'll upload the whole album to Google Docs later, I found a number of great resources for this cosplay. UPDATE: Here is my Google Doc full of references and junk.

I actually started this with a generic corset pattern (I can't recall 100% which one it was) and used crap fabric to make modifications. I'm not good (like at all) with custom pattern drafting, so I made a ton just so I could make sure it was accurate).

The corset doesn't fit perfect, because I made it in such haste and with a custom pattern, but when I get some free time I'm going to modify it so it fits a little bit better on the sides/back.

Here is the design for the front of the corset. Mine is a little wider than the actual one,

Sewed right over the tissue paper, then picked out the rest with tweezers. (Yes, it took forever)


The seam on the front of my corset (chest area) is a little too wide, now that I see it side-by-side with the reference image, but it fits well enough and no way in hell am I ever redoing this costume :)

Corset+lining and hastily made bracers.

Final product. The zipper of the cruddy catsuit I purchased from Ebay decided to break minutes before the Halloween parties, so I had to sew a new one on last minute. Costuming sure is stressful...
