Painted Lady Cosplay SDCC by Ethereal-Glutton Painted Lady Cosplay SDCC by Ethereal-Glutton
I wore this to San Diego Comic Con 2008. I was not one of the great cosplayers originally asked to join the cosplay contest, but Bryan spotted my costume (kinda hard not to...I was all white ^_^) and asked me to come up.

Again, I was just happy to be up there with all the excited fans. Thanks Mike and Bryan! :hug:

Awesome! I was gonna go Bellatrix this Halloween but this might've made me change my mind... and yes, I do plan that far ahead.

sorry for the late reply :(

did you still dress at her for halloween?

if no, next time tips: use only the very best theater make up you can get a hold of. practice patting and buffing the white makeup instead of slathering it on...

hi! thank you!

the make up was VERY hard to apply. i did 4 test runs before i wore this cosplay for sdcc. i did not paint the shoulder stripes all the way around to keep them from smudging on the back.

the gown is in three parts. there is an under layer that i did not make. it is a white shirred bridesmaid sheath dress i had from a wedding i consulted. the top layer is a very simple gown pattern with an elastic around the shoulders and bust to keep it from falling down. To expose the dress underneath, I purposely shirred the fabric shorter on the top gown. I could not find a cream fabric for the top gown, so I had to hand dye the material a few times to get an antique ivory color.

the accessory on the front is a piece of a nylon sash that i also dyed and attached later. The shell is paper mache molded and painted and attached with a badge backing.

the hat was the biggest labor. i made so many hats! i wanted a light but huge hat like the spirit's, but instead ended up finding the largest coolie i could find and spray painting it white. also, the veil is indeed a veil that i bunched and sewed to a headband like a bridal veil. the hat lays on top of the veil to hide the headband :)

there is a pic of me putting on the white makeup in following set

Oh wow, thank you! This will definitely help me make my own. All of your hard work definitely looks like it paid off. I can't wait to see what my work will come out to be, but I know it won't be as good as yours, haha. This really is an amazing piece of work. :D
