|Everyone wanted a headdress|
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was exactly as much fun as you'd expect. Our costumes look great. To make it even better, at least 15 drag queens were there in full and beautiful Regency ball gowns. We reached out to the Greater Bay Area Costumers Guild and had a couple extra people show up.
The black Regency dress is from the Simplicity Regency costume pattern. Cut a little extra full in the back, higher at the front neckline, and lower in the back. Someday I will trim it. The jacket body is from a McCalls blouse with a mandarin collar from a jacket and the long sleeves from the Regency pattern. Cheap lace scraps in the collar and $5 of fancy lace from eBay for the front. The front lace had to be coaxed and clipped into going around the bust, and hand tacked. Added eyepatch from the drugstore. The sword is $3 and painted (which has mostly flaked off) and the harness is made from belts left over from our Attack on Titan cosplay. I think I'm going to bring this to Costume College because it's super comfortable (no corset!) and fun.
Missy from Dr Who was a bit more work, but less than I planned. Hoo-raw! The costume changes every season, sometimes just a little so it was a challenge to decide where exactly to put the trim. The best part of cosplay is that mostly people don't notice as long as they recognize who you are. I used a pattern from the 1912 project for the skirt and added pleats where the trim should go in front. I didn't do the fancy period accurate closure. Just a zip in the back. The jacket is a frankenpattern mashup of these two patterns.

And finally, I helped out in the tiniest but with the High School musical, Cinderella.
