Dark Bros by willowfall Dark Bros by willowfall
Sneak peak of my Skyrim Dark Brotherhood (Astrid) costume. It's aaaalmost done!! You can see the two little flaps on my side aren't tacked down, in the real thing those will be stuck down with split pins.

Wow your cosplay looks so awesome! I'm probably going to be a dark brotherhood assassin next year, but I'm worried that I'm going to end up doing really bad since I've never actually made a cosplay before lol. Was this hard to make or pretty easy?

Thank you so much my friend!! The most difficult part was probably sewing the red parts to the black parts. This is tough because A) There are many curves involved (ie, the shoulders) so you can't just lay it out on a table and pin it - I had to make a duct tape dress form (do a google search, very handy) in order to pin them properly, and then B) the actual sewing was quite difficult as well because of all the odd angles (the tips of the pointy red parts, etc). Besides that, it will just take time because you're going to want to make a few mockups first to be sure everything fits snugly (pretty much standard for any costume). I would say you should absolutely go for it, but be prepared to be patient with yourself - good cosplay comes from patience more than skill :) You can find my writeup regarding how I made it here: [link]
