Ivy by srsRazzmatazz
Ivy
My 2013 Halloween costume!

Made a bunnysuit  and covered it in face leaves but didn't have time to bone it so I cheated and wore an underbust corset underneath for support so that the leaves wouldn't wrinkle. Didn't work terribly well, would not recommend for more than a couple hours wear as the leaves start wrinkling anyway without sewn in support. No specific source on this Ivy outfit, just an amalgamation of some of her wardrobe.
No better photos, sob sob sob.

Daenerys by srsRazzmatazz
Daenerys
The Boyfriend and I had the opportunity to meet George RR Martin in March 2013 so I made us costumes! AND IT WAS AMAZING.

I've been a fan of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels for years and, while I like the show, I prefer the characterization of some of my favorite characters from the novels far more. That didn't stop me from following the show costumes primarily for reference though, as I prefer to be recognized by fellow fans so that we can gush and talk theories.

I actually spend a massive amount of time working on her Qarth dress but when I tried it on, the day before the event, I hated pretty much everything about it (but mostly my rushed attempt at the gold print design on the fabric). I had purchased the textured fabric for the Red Waste outfit months back as it was on clearance and I didn't think I'd find it ever again. I packed up that fabric and some of my pseudo-suede scraps, took it all with me on our 4 hour drive down and made the costume pictured in the hotel room the night before/morning of meeting GRRM. Not at all very good but I was still happier with it than the Qarth dress. I wore it again on a whim (right photos) and refitted the top somewhat but I think I over did it: it went from baggy burlap looking sack to waaay too much boob for a lass of Dany's age. Oops.
I also didn't have time to style the wig the first time and didn't bother to do so the second wearing. Double Oops.

Perhaps after I man up and weather everything I can attempt to seek out a photoshoot; not sure which will be more challenging.
I also made a Targaryen banner to carry around as Dany....and to hold behind the both of us (Boyfriend as Snow) to display my support for my dearest R+L=J/PWWP endgame.

I really wanted (and still do) to make blue rose circlets but then the Tumblr Flower Crown Cancer erupted and I don't much want to be associated with that crowd.

Jon Snow
The Boyfriend and I had the opportunity to meet George RR Martin in March 2013 so I made us costumes!

I've been a fan of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels for years and, while I like the show, I prefer the characterization of some of my favorite characters from the novels far more. That didn't stop me from following the show costumes primarily for reference though, as I prefer to be recognized by fellow fans so that we can gush and talk theories.

I wish I'd had more time on this. Excluding that ugly last-minute sheath, the materials are all expensive top quality (real leather, real fur and legit linen) so I was deathly afraid to attempt to weather with snow textures and possibly ruin the whole thing before meeting GRRM. I've never really done any weathering so the whole process causes me considerable alarm. I need to get over that though, and do it! It would make these outfits a million times better.
I replaced his wig already, with one less like Kit Harrington and more like the lovely lithe Lord Snow in the novels and book-based art (like the board games/calendars/covers). No photos though, sadly. Perhaps after I man up and weather everything I can attempt to seek out a photoshoot; not sure which will be more challenging.

Snorlax Kigurumi by srsRazzmatazz
Snorlax Kigurumi
I made this for my boyfriend for Christmas last year! I meant to make slippers too, after the fact, but I guess it slipped my mind.

The colors aren't super accurate because I wanted to use the ultra cuddle fabric and the color range was limited...on the plus side this thing is ABSURDLY soft and warm. Too warm, in fact, since we live in Texas.
It is also HUGE, in proper Snorlax fashion: He is 6'0 and I made it extra baggy too. There is probably more fabric in Snorlax than there is in Ice King's gigantic robe.

The Phoenix by srsRazzmatazz
The Phoenix
I made Phoenix for Sci-Fi Expo, February 2014.

I actually started back in October (??) of last year but the spandex I bought ended up being too thin....which I only realized after I'd made the green part of the leotard and tried it on.
Long story short, I had to make another entire unitard in black to wear under this one so that the patterns on under things weren't entirely visible (yes, the green was that absurdly thin and I suppose I'm am a bit of a goof for not realizing this before purchase).

All the gold bits are sew directly to the unitard for a seamless look. I spent a ridiculous amount of time repatterning my boots/gloves in order to reduce the seams (as I feel seams are incredibly visible on the metallic). I probably shouldn't have take then time for that, however: although I started this costume last year most of the actual crafting was done within a little over a week, working full time, in late January, just before the convention.
No matter how hard I try I can't seem to escape procrastination, sadly!
Aside from my seam shenanigans, the outfit isn't complex: the black spandex is spliced in and the gold chest logo is an applique (using this technique as a guide: crashcult.blogspot.com/2011/01… ).

I'm not wearing any corsetry/shapewear here, only the carefully tailored spandex of the unitards. I'm pretty proud of this fact, though I know folks seem to find this dubious!

I love, love loooove this shot: I look so loooong here! Yes, I realize that probably seems like a silly thing to be gushing about but as an incredibly short and compact lass this is truly an impressive feat!

This photo was taken by the stupendous Chiaroscuro Cosplay (www.facebook.com/ChiaroscuroCosplay)! He's a friend of a friend and this was my first time meeting/shooting with him and, lemme tell you, it was a treat! He was incredibly nice during the con AND was super-efficient about showing me the great shots he took swiftly afterwards (which really is quiet something as many photos tend to take ages!). AND WHAT AWESOME SHOTS THEY WERE/ARE! :D (Big Grin)

Hey guys, I caved.

I've made a cosplay facebook.

Razzmatazz Cosplay

I'm terrible, as I'm sure you've noticed, about maintaining my dA and I find that tumblr is great for up to date progress though horrid to try to sift through to find anything older than a week (my tumblr is srsRazzmatazz too, by the way).

So, yeah, cosplay facebook.

www.facebook.com/srsRazzmatazz

I'm giving it a trail run til after Akon then I'm gonna decide if I want to keep it.
I dunno, it kinda feels too attention whore-y to me (says the cosplayer who cosplays comic book ladies with all of the bosom).

We shall see.

Oh yeah, that would be awesome! I don't do cons very much anymore, but hopefully we will cross paths at some point in the future. :D
