I made a Cersei Lannister costume for a friend to wear to PAX. She looked great. Here’s a picture:
(Gone with the wind style) the red fabric is old curtain. I bought them a million years ago, and didn’t end up using them. The gold is new satin. It’s a pretty straight ahead version of Simplicity 1487.
I was really happy with how the neck trim turned out, here’s a super grainy phone pic:
I built it up out of a band of the gold satin, a purchased trim, and the selvage from the gold trim.
(Who knew there was a part 3?)
A couple of weeks ago, I spent 3 awesome days at PAX East doing what I do best: playing Pathfinder and looking at hats. No really. Who would have expected a gaming con to sell Awesome Adventuring (well, if you’re from Taldor, anyway) Hats?
The folks at The Blonde Swan were selling (along with their fezzes and steampunk goggles) feathered hats in fashionable colours. They have better pictures on their site so go check them out (NAYY), but here’s a super grainy phone pic. Pretty close to the original, no? Except the colour and the small brim. Luckily, they also had a mauve one, like the wizard’s.
It was definitely the most unexpected thing I saw at PAX.
