Sona Cosplay Help Please~ <3
Post By stocking_chan. 30/10/13, 05:20 pm

After much humming & harring, and going back and forth between ideas, I have (FINALLY) decided on my cosplay for next year:
Sona from League of Legends.


Here is the splash art:
 

I intend to handmake my costume so I can enter the cosplay competition.

But this is where my friends come into it.
I'm not the best at sewing, so any tips & advice as well as possible patterns for the dress are very appreciated.

I am planning on using Worbla to help make the ethwal (her instrument), but I am not sure where to get any from.
Also, I would love if anyone could help find pattern for the dress so I can go about getting the material for it.

This will be for Christchurch Armageddon 2014, so I'm looking at having this done my March -finger crossed-

I don't know about worbla, but I've seen people getting wonderflex from trinity treasures - http://www.trinitytreasures.co.nz/Products

would be amazing if you could get the strings Sona plays on to light up too!

I will definitely have a look at that.
I hadn't considered lighting up the strings, but that sounds like a great idea Very Happy

I have found 2 possible dress patterns, since the dress itself just looks like this.
Was thinking of using pattern BC from this or something similar.

If you are after worbla there are two places online where you can get it at a reasonable price

http://www.coscraft.co.uk/3-thermoplastics <-- this is good if you are after the large sheet, their shipping is very cheap (unlike most other places that sell worbla). This is where I have gotten my worbla in the past and their shipping is quick :)

http://aetasvitae.bigcartel.com/category/worbla-s-finest-art <-- if you are after and extra large sheet (or more) these guys would be more cost effective. I havn't ordered from them myself but I know others on this forum have.

Thank you~
How much Worbla do you think I'd need for a project like this?
I don't want to order too much or not enough.

For something so big, have you considered using expandable foam, perhaps with a paper mache or cardboard base? You can carve it after it's dried.

Here's a tutorial.

For lighting up the strings you can buy EL wire? :)

As for patterning & etc, how much sewing experience do you have? If you're use to using patterns probably just going into spotlight or something and flipping through the pattern books is going to be a lot more straight forward as you can see what is best for you. I would personally make her dark blue dress as a start and build the sleeves/wrap thing after getting that patterned. Breaking costumes like this down to layers really helps!

Good luck! KICK BUTT!
