Hello all!


This board is in conjunction with my Standard Draft!
http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=96632&start=0


I hand build my Enfys nest costume! I am cleared and I want to show you all how I made this costume.

This thread will detail the steps I took to build this monstrosity.

Let me start off by saying this was the most intense costume I have ever made. I currently have 55 ish (I stopped counting) approved costumes between the Rebel Legion and the 501st.

HEAD AND HAIR



*I do not have much info on how I did this..

* I used a eyeliner pen for my freckles.
* I used super curly hair for the back.

When I did the top I twisted my hair and pinned it back. I used to have dreadlocks so I also pulled out some of my old oil I used to keep it back in place.

* I used a professional quality spray on my hair AND the curly piece to keep the color consistent.

*I try to not do wigs. I dunno they always look fake to me, If I can fake it with partial fake and partial real I always try Very Happy



I used this!
I relaxed the hair using my blow dryer.




I changed the color of it by using paint. I strayed it directly onto the hair

CAPE





Cut your fur in this shape


Recolored with spraypaint with color as seen above




I took 6 yards of orange and 6 yards of wool and I sewed the top together. i just ran a line down it.



I folded the edges of the cape in and ironed and glued it down.



Heres the cape way to wide.


Cut a strip of faux leather. Heres how thick mine is. I think its about half an inch to thick on mine. Maybe make yours 1.5 inches?





Use ONLY Gorilla Glue Hot Glue. This stuff ROCKS! I couldnt find stitches so I glued mine on.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdKK6z7VE-c





I affixed the linen section on with my sewing macgine



Sew the cape parts together like so...




On the back of the suit I affixed 3 clips. This will keep the cape on me.
