Vampire Cosplay Never Goes Out of Style

vampire-costume-1

Methyl Ethyl Cosplay, a.k.a. Morgan, has crafted a number of complex and detailed cosplays, but her Halloween costume this year was pretty straightforward. She made a vampire costume over the course of a weekend and shared it to show that it is possible to put a unique costume together at the last minute. She used a lot of materials she already had on hand, so it’s also great inspiration to be resourceful.

She already owned the base dress and corset belt, and she made a bustle skirt and lace train. She used scraps from a red dress to make the sash and sleeves. Craft foam played a part in much of the costume:

The bracers are craft foam covered with fabric. The side panels have beads and chain sewn on, and the bracers are worn by lacing the chain loops together with ribbon. The collar and crown are made from craft foam with beads sewn on. The red portion of the crown is fabric covered foam. The middle jewel is a spare resin gem I made for my WD build and the gem’s gold rim is foam. The hanging chain portion was sewn into the crown.
