Princess Lily - Legend by FireLilyCosplay
Princess Lily - Legend
Costume made and modeled by :iconfirelilycosplay:
Photo by David Dunn.

This costume was a long time coming - I've been growing my hair out for about 5 years now just to make the costume!  So happy I finally made this!  "Legend" is one of my favorite movies ever and it's a big part of my childhood.  I absolutely love the story, the music, the setting, the characters - it's just an amazing movie.

I am so grateful to Andrea Schewe for designing the sewing pattern through Simplicity!  It helped make the process of making this so much easier :D  The under dress is made from a really neat slinky fabric with a slick texture and great drape - I am so thrilled I found it because it's perfect for the costume.  The neckline is sewn over with a blanket stitch, and the sleeves feature hand sewn eyelets and hand stitched gold cord trim along the edges.  The over dress is made from a gorgeous buttercream yellow sateen.  The shoulder straps are decorated in tiny white and iridescent pearl flowers, leaves, and rhinestones.  The sleeve straps are decorated with some sequin and bullion trim I've had for several years and rhinestones and gold cord.  The long sleeves and bodice are lined with a straw colored lining fabric to match.  The bodice features hand sewn gold cord, beads, and various flowers and hand cut leaves.  The lacing holes at the bodice front are also hand sewn.  The belt piece is hand beaded with smooth and rough purl gold bullion, sequins, and beads.  The dress also has two lengths of sequin trim at the front with two gold diamond-shaped tails and fringe.

I hand beaded the necklace using bugle and seed beads, and a heart button with hanging pearls, and the earrings with pearls and bicone beads.  The crown/snood is made from a length of flat ribbon wire coated with hot glue for shape and painted gold.  The netting portion is gold embroidery floss and each intersection is hand tied.  I then added some super sparkly gold flowers with rhinestone centers to the front and back barrette.  Not seen in this picture are the shoes - red suede with gold design painted on using glitter glue.  And I have the ring, but it's also not pictured here.

I am so very happy that I finally got to make this costume - it's another mini-dream come true :love:

Phew...I'm finally getting back to editing pictures and updating sites after a very long rush on cosplay throughout the spring and summer.  Let's start with one of my newest costumes: Dejah Thoris from Disney's "John Carter" movie!  I hope you enjoy :D

After seeing Disney's "John Carter" movie, I was absolutely hooked on making this dress (designed by Mayes C. Rubeo, worn by Lynn Collins).  This was probably the most extensively draped/flat drafted costume I've made yet.  I was actually beading and rhinestoning at the convention because there was just so much to put onto the dress!  

I resin casted all the dress, bracelet, crown, and necklace filigree pieces and pieced them all together to match the dimensions of Dejah's costume pieces.  The crown is made of wire that I beaded and adorned with chains and rhinestoned pieces.  The body tattoos took around 5 hours to complete and is a combination of water-slide tattoos and hand drawn ink.

Making and wearing this was such a little dream come true!!  I had a wonderful time at DragonCon and had such a great reception in Atlanta :D

Welcome to Fire Lily Cosplay and thank you for visiting my space on Deviant Art! I started cosplaying in 2004, and I had no idea what I was getting myself into! I really love making costumes, as well as clothing, and I'm always coming up with new and more ambitious ideas. I try very hard to remain true to the spirit of the characters I cosplay and recreate them as accurately as I can.

Your tutorials are very nice, and I can't wait to find a use for them! :D
I was actually considering doing one myself for some armor related cosplay pieces, and couldn't help but wonder if you had any suggestions for making tutorials...? (specifically programs for creation, methods, details, etc.)

I use GIMP for my photo editing and layouts, and LightBox for color correction.

Hola, ?como estamos?
I am very interested in military subjects, and am thinking of doing military cosplay. Mind you, I am not talking about US Civil War reenactments, but rather about other wars, such as the one that started a hundred years ago. Is there such a thing as military cosplay?

There are lots of people who dress up to reenact wars and skirmishes, as well as for founding villages and towns, parades, events, etc.

Thanks for the tip.
Are there places where I can commission an outfit to be made, since I don't know how to sew? There is a website dedicated to military insignia around the world where I can find the rank insignia that I need.
