Last Minute Cosplay for Katsucon 2015

With Katsucon being next week, I've decided to do the crazy thing and make a last minute cosplay from scratch: Chel from El Dorado. Surprisingly, the construction is going a lot easier than I anticipated. After spending almost 3 hours in JoAnn Fabrics ( lol ), the fabrics I finally chose were linen, and the pattern was hand drawn based off of my body type, and TONS of references from the movie.

While I had some help from my good friend who has a sweet aspiring career as a costume maker, we were able to get a lot done with the loin cloth skirt, while watching the Superbowl. By day two, I had my top cut out, hemmed, pinned, and sewn. I'll definitely post some more pictures on the construction as the convention gets closer; I have more work to do with sewing, plus painting my wooden bangles (when they will arrive though the mail).

The zipper I purchased was too short, so I'll have to try again with a 12''-16'' long zipper.
