Here it is, my first ever cosplay! I've been interested in cosplay for quite a while now, and as soon as I saw that my now cosplay hero Megan had started making costumes, I knew I had to give it a shot too. At first, I wanted to make an Elsa costume for my first one, but as I was trying to make it, I decided to give up and try something a bit easier, so I chose Briar Rose. The costume is actually based on Megan's Briar Rose cosplay, as I thought hers looked sweet without being too hard to source materials for, so I ordered some pink fabric and waited to start.
The top half of the outfit was all bought, not made. I saw the blouse in a charity shop for 50p, so I snapped that right up, and the top is a simple Primark vest that I altered (I can't wear corsets because I have quite delicate kidneys, and a corset would be too tight around that area). For the skirt I made a simple circle skirt, which I found in this tutorial, and then added a zip. It was so easy to make, and has definitely got me itching to try some more cosplays.
ps. Sorry for my extremely awkward posing, I'm not quite used to posing in character just yet, it was my first time after all.
