Wig from Ayanamisatoru
I really wanted to remake my Leon costume from 2013, and it finally happened! With much nicer materials and a bit less rushing this time.
The jacket is made from a lush blue cashmere mink wool, with red wool and cotton for the collar and blue anti-static lining. The amount of fabric I had was limited, so it was patterned very carefully to match the seams in the artwork. The sleeves are finished with off-white crepe, black cotton, purple chiffon & matching bias made from gold dupioni. The cape is made from a heavy linen blend with a separate cowl for volume.
The silver choker & accessories are made from foam & worbla which is primed with glue & painted, attached to the costume with hooks. The blue gems are made from resin, finished with worbla edges which help fasten the cape in place. The belt is made from off-white faux leather with punched eyelets and a modified buckle. The trousers were bought, and the boot covers are made from matching blue wool.
