I made a flapper dress out of the cards :) Yea I know some of you are probably pointing at me and screaming "that's not cosplay". Let's go back to the definition that had previously defined back in an earlier cosplay post. Cosplay Week #1 - Melissa Seraphy
Old definition of Cosplay: Dressing up as an anime (japanese cartoons), manga (japanese for comic book), or video character from primarily the Japanese culture
New definition of Cosplay: Dressing up as any characters or persona
Thus this is a persona cosplay
So how did I make it? (feel free to yell at me, I deserve it)
- I made a quick bag dress using stretchy material. This served as a frame
- Then a took cards from about 36 different anime and video game series and made a tab off of the trading card using scotch tape (using scotch tape means I could remove them cleanly later
- Then the hot glue (eeep, i did get some on the cards ~sniff sniff~) and glued each card onto the dress, starting from the bottom up.
