I mentioned on Twitter last week that we were in the process of creating some fun costumes and doing a photoshoot for one of my all time favorite classic books. Well, I just finished up editing the photos and can now proudly display them!
My sister and I went with Susan Pevensie in her green dress and older Lucy Pevensie from the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.
I absolutely loved getting to create these costumes. Over 50 hours of work went into making both of them, and we visited four different craft stores in the process of obtaining the right materials. We also ordered some items online (such as the trim for Susan’s cape, which is actually the exact same trim they used in the movie). The hardest park of my costume was figuring out the best way to make the sleeves for my outer dress. The hardest part for Cassy’s was the creation of pretty much all her props because she had some complicated designs haha.
Right now we have no plans to create another cosplay, but I’m definitely open to the idea. Let me know what you think of the costumes in the comments below, and tell me if you’ve cosplayed before!
