Almost There!

My Stephanie Brown Robin cosplay is almost finished, which is great, since I need it this coming Sunday.

Here you can see my first try-on of the dress and cape.

Re-winding a bit, last time I posted, I left off with a dress that had no sleeves. I started on the sleeves by constructing the little arm pads that Robin usually has. These are probably one of the stupider parts of Robin’s costume. They protect such a little area of the arm, but are a pain to sew. Grr…

Sewing the pad.

Moving on to the cape, here I was draping the cape body.

Embellishing the belt. I sewed a strip of cotton sateen edged with piping for the belt itself.

The last sewing part is the gloves. I have one glove finished, just need one more! I also need to style the wig, and that’s it.
