Lilith Cosplay Front and Back by pixiekitty Lilith Cosplay Front and Back by pixiekitty
This costume was made along with my friend Catsiy as Morrigan. Both costumes were based off of my ideas on construction, and were planned out by me. Catsiy and I bought the same fabrics and materials, and worked very closely together so that they would match as much as possible! These costumes were a literal nightmare. Everything that could of gone wrong during construction DID go wrong I think. I tried a few different fabrics and designs. We definitely wanted the leotard to be one piece, and we did not want to have clear fishing line holding up our wings. We accomplished those two things, and thus were very pleased! The wings are a mesh base that are covered in the same fabrics used for our costumes - they are attached to a really sturdy corset underneath the body suit - so they do sort of stand on their own enough so that we can pose with our arms and they don't fall to the ground. We put a lot of detailing into our wings - we even have veins/bones sticking out on the backs!

I painted both sets of tights as poor Catsiy wore them for long periods of time! XD The feather trims were also made by me, because we didn't have time or money to buy expensive feather trims (why they cost so much, i'll never know). I dyed stretch white cotton for my sleeves to match my tights, and costume colored, cut, and sized my boots (doesn't seem like it was that much work when you look at the simple design of these things). Catsiy's Morrigan wig started out as a white godiva wig that I custom colored with various colors of sharpie and cut up. It was originally for my Terra costume, but never got used - so we got to save money on that, and it happened to work out well!

Thata must have been one hell of a task! xD You clearly have a talent for constructing costumes....but looking at you frame your upper body doesn't seem to match up with your legs...the top part of the leotard flattens your frame and looks bulky in the photo(did you wear a corset under the leotard?) A clinched waist would have suited the character you're portraying better, but its understandable that you had a few issues with this costume and these types of projects don't always work out perfectly . kudos on the effort, though.

I think the reason my proportions are looking weird in the left picture is the angle i'm leaning out. I actually made the top part of the leotard to do that - I wanted it to flatten my chest since Lilith is a little girl. And it's my body that's the bukliness you see there XD lol. And yes there is a corset that holds the wings up under the leotard.

sheesh you made it! =) I'm sure this was annoying as you describe. I hope you still like the costume... after all trouble.

Do sharpies really die the wigs well? I had thought to do that once and I also though getting dyes for them would work too. :) Im glad I got to see some of your process! you did an excellent job!

So much construction went into this, it's really impressive when you get down to every detail accurately hit!
