Cosplayer Larxenne and her group put together a BioShock Infinite cosplay group, and she decided to be Elizabeth. The character wears a blue dress with a white corset and has a distinctive choker and pendant. Larxenne made that first with ribbon and lace, and she crafted the pendant from air dry clay that she painted and protected with vinyl latex.
She made the corset from a medium satin and used a standard pattern to make it. She had to attach the black ribbon strips and used adhesive to do so rather than sewing them on. Adhesive and fabric do play nice together. The skirt is a basic circle skirt and the dress is a bolero jacket. This is definitely a costume you could put together from found pieces if you can’t sew – white corsets are relatively easy to find and you can choose a bolero jacket that goes with your everyday wardrobe.
