For DragonCon 2010, a number of Jen’s friends decided to dress as their Shadowrun tabletop characters. Jen didn’t have a character (yet), but she wanted to dress up too. So, with the help of her friends, they were able to piece together this outfit in about twenty minutes on Saturday during the convention:
Jen had so much fun doing it, she decided to update the costume for DragonCon 2011!
Here’s the step-by-step process:
- Concept art
- Patterns and fabrics
- “Found” pieces
- Making and customizing pieces
- Putting it all together
1.Concept art. Since I had put this costume together already, the concept art was more what I wanted the costume to evolve into.
2.Patterns and fabric
Since I already had the majority of the pieces, no patterns or new fabric was required.
4.Making and customizing pieces
|I took the pouches off the tactical vest and attached them to a bodice I already had.|
- We used Airsoft guns, but I don’t have any pictures right now of them.
The finished product!
