SHAMAN COSPLAY - FIRST UPDATE

After two weeks I've got the first update for you!

 

If you follow me on Instagram you already know that I changed the whole design after the first three days. Why?

 

Well, as planned I started with the red dress and when I finished it, it looked better than expected and I was so surprised and happy! But when I added the black sleeves and the tabard I didn't like it any longer. The whole dress, the handwork and love I put in this dress got lost, so I decided to change the design of my cosplay.

At first I couldn't come up with anything - I had no ideas when I started to draw. I looked for inspiration but nothing convinced me, so I asked myself: what have you always wanted to do? What haven't you ever dared?

 

I wanted to bring the forest into the dress, as it was planned from the start but I just couldn't get it right because I was too cramped. But Ashley Rose Couture inspired me with her designs to break out of my comfort zone and dare something - so I did! I stopped drawing and started to craft: wood piece after woo piece after wood piece...

 

And what it looks now, you can see in the photos! I'm so happy how it turned out and I'm so glad I was brave enough to do this! There are still some things I would change but I think that's the curse of a perfectionist.

 

Is the cosplay finished now? Hell no! The madness has only just begun!

    Wie hast du das mit dem Holz gemacht. Mit Holzleim aneinandergeklebt?

    Hallo D1sk! Danke für dein Kommentar! :-) Nein ich habe Kontaktkleber gebraucht, da der Untergrund nicht aus Holz ist. Ich werde ein kurze Tutorial Video dazu machen und es schon bald auf meinen Youtube Kanal laden - es gab schon einige Fragen dazu :-D Würde mich freuen wenn du meinen Kanal abonnieren würdest (falls du nicht schon hast), dann bekommst du auch gleich von Youtube eine Benachrichtigung wenn das Video online ist! Ich wünsche dir bis dahin noch einen guten Wochenstart!
