Gambette Cosplay & Modeling
Since I've been clogging up my personal blog with cosplay and modeling posts, I figured it was about time I made a separate page for that. So, there we go! A page for my collected modeling and cosplay works.

I just finished hand-painting a Targaryen banner for our Khalasar at the Elf Fantasy Fair Haarzuilens 2014.
Remind me to never do this again.
My fingers are cramped up, but yay, results!

Danerys - Ariel

Game of Thrones

Colossalcon 2013

Ariel and Jeremiah make such an amazing Khal and Khaleesi! I missed shooting them at Midoricon because I hadn’t read Game of Thrones yet… and have been kicking myself for it ever since. We fixed that at Kalahari.

This is a set of characters where you really need a lot of confidence, and the right height difference - and these two are right on the money! Just… very, very pleased to get these photos. It’s fun to work with costumes from my pet series! (Despite all the sneezing - Apparently I am allergic to Savannah grass!)


Well that’s cute as hell

I haven’t reblogged an awful lot of other Daenerys cosplayers actually maybe not any at all because I haven’t seen many good photosets but good grief, this one’s amazing. Not just the costumes and makeup (and Daenerys’ wig, I see a lot of people with amazing costumes who didn’t get the hair right), but the setting and dynamics are incredible. And last, but not least, props to the photographer for camera angles and use of light; I find that outdoor shoots have that extra bit of a challenge to them, but these are wonderful.

oh, one last thing

Slowly working on my next costume project. I’m really going to take the time to get all the details right for this one as if I don’t always do that aherm since there’s a lot of tiny details. But it’ll be fun, no doubt :3

First look at my finished Daenerys Targaryen - House of the Undying outfit, worn during the Galaxy Masquerade at the first edition of Imagicon. Since the light wasn’t all that grand for taking pictures, the dragon on my shoulder isn’t very visible and the con band around my wrist isn’t very flattering either, but hopefully there’ll be loads more pictures after the Elf Fantasy Fair.

Had a test-run of my Daenerys ‘House of the Undying’ costume for the Khaleesi Project at the Elf Fantasy Fair at Imagicon yesterday and things went pretty smoothly, despite the fact that my cats had wrecked my shoulder dragon the day before and I had to improvise. Received a lot of compliments, and came in second in the masquerade! 

For all of you who are going to the Elf Fantasy Fair in a few weeks: feel free to drop by our camp or stop me if you spot me, my horse and my Khalasar.

And with that, I’m happy to announce my new costume project! Lagertha from Vikings. This’ll be multi-functional as I can totally use it for LARP, too.

So just to reassure everyone here that my costume work hasn’t fallen off the face of the earth, I’m working on the final bits of my Daenerys ‘House of the Undying’ outfit. The armor’s nearly finished! What an adventure. Stuck my leather needle in my thumb earlier so I had to make sure I didn’t bleed all over the leather. Anyone who calls me skilled or a handywoman is wrong.

Hello! I am just getting into cosplay, and I have always had a love for Fantomex/Cluster. So, as soon as I can conjure up funds and such, I will be pursuing the costume. I have just about everything planned out, but I’m struggling with how to apply the zig zags. On other questions you have briefly touched how you applied them, but I was wondering if it’s simply applique or something else. Anything helps, detail is greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance.

Hey there! First off, I want to give you a small warning, not to discourage you but to be realistic: this can be a very time-consuming, detailed and at some point frustrating project, and not one that I would recommend if you don’t have an awful lot of experience. All and all, however, it’ll all be worth it, so that’ll be your mantra throughout this project ;)

Having put that behind us: I didn’t use any applique techniques for the simple fact that it’s a stretch costume, I used different fabrics for the white and the black parts and applique is definitely not recommendable if you have two different fabrics with different amounts of stretch. What I did was cut out the basic costume in white and made sure it would fit properly on all parts of my body (it takes a whole lot of taking measurements all over your body and making sure you know how much your fabric stretches to make proper catsuit-patterns for that, you might want to ask someone to help you there) and then started drawing the stripes on the pattern I had previously made for the catsuit. 

Next, I pinned the pattern to the white suit and cut out the parts where the black stripes would go, giving me loose straps of white to discard, but also the cut-out pattern for the black stripes. Placing those on the black lycra I would use for the stripes, I cut those out, making sure to leave enough seam allowance for them to fit back into the catsuit properly. I then proceeded to sew them into the suit itself, which is the most time-consuming part of the whole ordeal.

The mask is the most challenging part, since you don’t want it to wrinkle and it needs a proper ponytail and eye hole. Make sure to fit the mask first before you cut out the parts for the ponytail and the eyes, or better yet, have a friend help you draw the outlines of said holes, as it’s much more efficient to pinpoint them when you have the mask on. I was on my own, though, so I goofed around a bit until I managed to pinpoint the exact location of the eye hole and ponytail gap. I’d recommend sewing the stripes onto the mask rather than into it like I did with the suit, but you’d have to really keep in mind that the amount of stretch between the two fabrics can vary, so if you stretch one too much, it might wrinkle up your mask. 

Also, if you look at my choice of fabrics for the white parts, you’ll see that I didn’t use lycra, and I wouldn’t recommend using it either. Cluster’s suit doesn’t seem to be as shimmery as a lot of other superhero suits, but it does seem to stretch around her body, and since she’s got a mask that covers her mouth and nose, you’ll want to get something that actually allows you to breathe without being a sweat-snot-and-tears-covered mess at the end of the day. And even with those breathing fabrics, I couldn’t keep up my mask for an entire summer climate convention day :’)

I hope this was helpful! If you have any more questions, feel free to pop on by again :3

The Adventures of Tintin

I realized the shoot kinda added up telling a story. Not sure what that story is, but neither the less, a story.
