Brisbane Supanova 2013 - Daenerys Targaryen - season 3 episode 7
Cosplay Tutorial [x]
Side note: The wig is sooo annoying. Too thick and tangles into a ball of nightmare. Its so hard to deal with.
Wow I am currently sewing a dress, and i just can’t use patterns for my life. Everything I’ve ever sewn I have usually just cut material and put it together! Patterns are so confusing!
Hi guys, Another tutorial from me! This practically completes my daenerys cosplay [just have to rebraid my wig] so today I’m going to show you how I made the belt shown here:
Alright cool, so the first thing I did was go through my scraps, I found some cheap vinyl that I once bought in a scraps bin that was gray, all I did was put some brown acrylic paint on it. From the photo it looks like its kind of braided somehow… I decided just weaving it would be fine. I don’t really know how they made that belt, but it looks so cool.
I started off with cutting long, thin pieces which would go the entire way around my waist, and then cutting short 11cm strips for the sides. Then I started cutting longer pieces, the longest being 13cm, to go in the middle diamond. I then started weaving from one side, making sure it was as tight as possible.
I had to keep pulling on them to make them as tight as possible so there was near to no gaps between the strips. Then I got out my hot glue gun and began gluing the edges on to the back. It got a bit messy, as hot glue guns are. But at the end just pick off all the dried strings of glue that stick to the piece.
As I kept this process up it got very easy. However, when I reached the middle it was definitely not a walk in the park. The middle requires extra length way pieces, and to be kind of made like steps with the weaving. My problem is I kept underestimating how long I wanted the lengthways pieces and I had to keep gluing extensions on. It was a mess! But It turned out alright and I hid all the places I went wrong.
Once the entire length of the belt was weaved, I cut a long piece of the vinyl to shape of the belt and hot glued it to the belt as shown below, to neaten it up and make it more comfortable to wear.
Below is a picture of me wearing the belt, I don’t think it’s too bad! Not exactly like the belt she wears, but I think its quite close don’t you think! And sure it’s a little messy in the middle, but it serves the purpose hah
That concludes this tutorial for the belt Daenerys wears in the respective episode. Now to rebraid the wig, and then the entire collection is done ready for Supanova in two weeks!!!!! So excite.
Thanks guys for any support you have given me, I know its support cause I have never gotten as much likes/reblogs on my tutorials as I did in my white dress tutorial! So thank you!
