Cosplayer: cosrai

Variant: Season 6 Coronation Dress

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

Showcased 3rd October 2019

30th October 2017: Finished look. Mirror selfie on the Saturday morning of mcm! (Bonus sunglasses and swag) I love wearing Cersei to events because people love to hate me haha the amount of 'shame' and 'tell Cersei it was me' comments were great. I struggle to stay in character because I'm always laughing as Cersei XD

25th October 2017: Complete ...but still waiting on wig (which did eventually turn up!)

24th October 2017: Finished dress It's quite messily thrown together but I'm happy. Managed to start and finish in a short amount of time, which is very unlike me lol.

23rd October 2017: Finished armour The difference a bit of weathering makes. These aren't screen accurate I know, but when do I ever make anything screen accurate lol

22nd October 2017: Shoulders and crown Made from foam and worbla, painted with silver rub n buff and acrylics :)

21st October 2017: Cutting pieces I decided on the Herringbone fabric for the under layer of the dress. I laid out both fabrics on top of each other so I could cut them at the same time, and used the pattern pieces from the test dress to cut around.

20th October 2017: Fabric and odd parts I've made some foam + worbla pauldrens and a worbla crown. Just waiting on the wood glue coat to dry before I paint them. I'm only using one coat as I think the rough worbla texture looks good for this armour. The top fabric (faux leather with laser cut holes) is from Etsy, and the underneath layer i'm still deciding between 2 different textures, as shown in the photo. I've also ordered a long petticoat to go under the dress to add the desired volume :) Wig is on its way from Arda wigs, I hope it gets here on time!

2nd October 2017: Patterning Now begins the hell of trying to modify a pattern for this beast of a dress.
I'll be using a cheap cotton to make a test version of the dress, and to see how much fabric I will need overall. I have found a good fabric on etsy for the top layer of the dress, but am still searching for a good black+white patterned fabric for the underneath part. I will also need some sort of petticoat for this to. As for the crown and pauldrens, I think they will be quite simple with a bit of foam and worbla work!
