Horror pet shop
I joined Petshop of Horrors earlier this year and I wanted to dress up as Count D because he amuses me a lot because he is very greedy and constantly fights with Leon. Plus, he has nice clothes! I was thinking of making him a more normal costume, but then I saw an illustration of this costume in volume 8 and I wanted to make it because I love peacock feathers. * _ *
I choose the color scheme myself since the costume only appears in a manga illustration and I’ve never seen a colored version. I also extrapolated some things since there’s only a front view; I created my own feather pattern for the back of the dress. I also made an underskirt because I looked at Count D’s other outfits and noticed that he always wears either pants or a skirt under garments with high slits.
Dress: The dress was difficult due to the unusual neckline and the fact that it was basically a Chinese dress with a masculine character. (This was a tricky outfit to crossplay. I don’t think I completely succeeded. ._.;) Since I needed a dress that wasn’t closely fitted to a female figure, I started from a pattern for loosely fitting tops with mandarin collars. I’ve stretched the pattern so that the back is a little fuller near the hem. The element of the sleeve motif has been modified to include a slit and a curved hem. I cut out some of the pattern pieces on the right side to create an asymmetrical neckline, created the faces and added a side zipper to the design.
The peacock feather motifs were hand painted after the fabric was cut. Ho usato 6 colori diversi, comprese 3 sfumature di verde, e i disegni hanno impiegato circa 20-25 ore poiché ci sono così tante piccole linee ondulate nelle piume.
The dress was sewn after painting. I included a contrasting purple lining as the interior was brighter in the reference photo. For the first time, I threaded the eyelets along the sleeve opening and braided some gold embroidery thread to use for the lacing. The hem around the collar was hand sewn and I mounted the fringes. L’ornamento sul collo è in realtà una spilla che ho tirato fuori dalla mia collezione di gioielli quando ho esaurito il tempo e i materiali per fare più precisione. ^ _ ^ ;;
Petticoat: Petticoat is made from a rectangular piece of purple satin. I just sewed it into a tube with a French seam, added a rubber band to one end, and sewed the other end.
Glove: The glove turned out to be one of the hardest parts of the costume because I had never done one before. I couldn’t find the Vogue glove pattern locally and had to draft my own pattern based on an online tutorial. I cut the glove and sewed it from the fabric under the dress and lined the top to the lining of the dress. Then I added the eyelets and braided some embroidery floss into the lacing. Sewing was a little messy, but I was glad I just did. *doesn’t want to make another glove any time soon* x_x;
Wig: Count D’s hair is always changing colors on the manga covers but I decided to use black since that’s how it’s described in the text. (Plus, I don’t have to worry about it clashing when I make other outfits for him! 😀 *already has a second in the works*) I bought an Off-Black D. Boy wig and straightened the hair around the face a bit and trimmed it since it was a little longer than the rest of the wig. I also used a hair dryer to move part of the wig so that it faces slightly towards the left side of my face and train part of the hair to fall on the right eye.
Make-up: I based my make-up on manga covers, where Count D often wears pink eyes and his nails are always white. Since I generally keep my nails long, I decided to use my real nails, allowing them to grow longer than usual and paint them white. I thought about fake nails but was worried I’d forget about them being longer than normal and accidentally scratch someone or myself. ^ _ ^;
Q-Chan plushie: Although not pictured in the illustration the costume is from, I wanted to make the bat/rabbit that often sits on Count D’s shoulder. Q-Chan’s colors vary on the manga covers and I chose a yellow and purple version because I liked it best. I made a pattern myself and sewed everything by hand. Ci sono ossa nelle orecchie per aiutarli a stare in piedi, e le ali e i piedi sono uniti con lana di feltro per renderli rigidi. I put magnets in my feet and sewed more into the shoulder of the dress so it could stick to me. ^ _ ^

While it was actually supposed to be one of Count D’s ancestors, this volume 9 outfit was one of my favorites when I first read the PSOH manga. (Reference pic: http://img. photobucket. com/albums/v342/LadyoftheThread/misc/19thcenturyd. jpg) I was happy to finally have a winter con to make this costume for and it’s now my favorite of my D cosplays and my favorite costume overall. It was built slowly over 3 months and made its NYAF debut in December where it won the Craftsman 1st place indoor competition. I’m also really excited about the prospect of wearing it again at Anime Boston with a big PSOH group! ^ _ ^
Long-winded design considerations …
General: Since the only reference images were black and white, I chose my own color scheme. I started with a swirling tabard patterned fabric, and eventually settled for dark navy blue velvet with gold patterns. After selecting this I chose yellow patterned glitter, a turquoise piece to match both fabrics, and gold that I could use to finish it all off. I chose fine fabrics like velvet, brocade, satin and taffeta because in the manga the costume was worn when D visited a European princess’s castle in the late 19th century.
I mainly designed the models myself, although I copied elements such as necklines, shoulder seams and armpits from commercial models. Since the costume was floor length and I’m short, I opted to make my costume longer and wear heels to try to better match the very tall look of the reference pic. All garments are fully lined, except the petticoat which has a French seam.
Collar: I worked out the collar motif myself by making pieces in 2 sizes by layers. Il glitter è stato combinato con un panno ad ago in modo che il colletto mantenga la sua forma e i bordi siano rifiniti con un’applicazione.
Main dressing gown: I designed a turquoise dressing gown with a slit at the front (closed with snaps) that can be hidden under a cloak. The sleeves are made with a contrast cuff and a curved hem to match your references. I’ve also made them long enough to allow myself to hide my hands as no hand is visible in the main link. A glittery yellow collar is attached, followed by a stand-up collar. Like the yellow collar, the hem of the stand-up collar is finished with appliqués. The finishing along the side slits and the hem is made on one side of the diagonal strips sewn by machine and then fixed by hand. I did this to avoid visible seams on the outside and thought it was much better than my attempts to completely close the upholstery.
Tabard: The velvety part of the tabard was made first. Snap button closure on the right shoulder, thanks to which the closures are hidden under the collar. The gold trim was treated the same way as the turquoise robe. 4 pieces of yellow glitter were made separately and cut before hand sewing. The front and back of the tabard are also tied at the sides at the waist.
Petticoat: The petticoat was sewn with French stitching and inflated to keep it full before being gathered with an elastic. The bottom is finished with a narrow machine-stitched hem.
Band: The band consists of two long rectangles of fabric. Since it’s not completely smooth in the reference, I cut the piece of satin larger and pleated it at the ends and middle so that it would fit the smaller piece of lining and form some folds. The ends are secured with a hook and loop closure.
Necklace / Bead Bundles: The necklace is strung on the wire and the ends are attached to the beaded clasp. The link shows different sizes of beads in the necklaces, so I used 12mm beads for the shortest strand and 10mm beads with 8mm at the bottom for the longest strand.
The threads hanging from the belt are also strung on knitting needles with a huge lobster clasp at each end. Fasteners allow me to attach wires to a metal ring on a belt hidden under the sash. Since the strap supports the weight of the threads, it prevents the costume from slipping off at this point. It’s actually a replacement bead set as I found my original crystal bead set was too heavy and made skirts plummet too much.
(The beads were actually one of the most aggravating parts about this costume because I really wanted colored pearls but couldn’t find anything large enough other than glass and crystal, which were too heavy. Plus, it was hard finding a color that would go with all the fabrics and photograph well. >_ @LadyoftheThread

Introduction: Phoenix and Gryphon in “Shop with horror movies”
All better careful! The Shop with horror movies is open for business. Gryphon plays the role of Seymour, a young florist who comes across a very unusual plant he calls Audrey II. Phoenix plays Audrey II, a man who eats a plant from space and wants blood. Seymour puts drops of blood from his finger into Audrey II’s open, serrated mouth. Ciò fa sì che la pianta cresca e cresca e i suoi baffi continuino a diffondersi finché non prendono il controllo del negozio del fiorista e possono semplicemente conquistare il mondo.
Step 1: Make the Audrey II headdress
White rigid felt
To make Audrey II’s headdress, we started with a plant headdress meant to be a human costume. We cut off some of the hood, and used dental floss and wire to shape it to fit onto a dog’s head. We added sharp teeth which we made by cutting triangles of white hard felt and gluing them inside the mouth with a glue gun. We also had a crown of leaves to extend the leafy look, which were twisted branches with intertwined artificial leaves.
Step 2: Create tendrils and leaves
Jumbo stems in green chenille
We had to make it look like the plant was spreading everywhere, with the whiskers crawling out all over the place. We made a mustache with green jumbo chenille buds. They could have been folded and formed into wavy arms and vines. We cut the artificial leaves into a pointed shape and glued them along the chenille stems for a prickly look. We also added some large leaves to make them look like the hands of the plant. To do this, we cut the green felt into the shapes of the leaves. We then placed pairs of shapes on a thick wire that was folded into shape and applied to the glue. We decorated the leaves with green glitter, drawing on veins and lines.
Step 3: Make a flowerpot and attach the mustache
Large garden pot
For the plant’s pot, we found a garden pot that was very large and light. We cut the bottom with scissors, which took some persistence. The pot was then able to slip easily over the dog’s head. Then, we attached the mustache we created, gluing them that protrude from the inside of the pot in different places. We also glued some pieces of green felt cut into a leafy pattern from the bottom of the pot, to hang over and cover the dog’s paws.
Step 4: creating the language
Swollen black paint
To make Audrey II’s large and curvy tongue, we started by cutting a very long tongue shape out of red felt. So we painted it with a fabric reinforcement. Aby uzyskać falisty kształt, pozostawiamy go do wyschnięcia, zwinięty w górę i w dół nad plastikowymi kubkami i zabezpieczony spinaczami do papieru. After it dried, we attached it to an ice cream stick so the dog could easily hold it in his mouth. We also decorated it with soft black paint to outline the tongue and draw a line along its center.
Step 5: Decorate the leafy nose
Fun green fur yarn
We wanted to add a little more leafiness to the dog’s face, so we created a ring of leaves to go around his snout. We did this by creating a circle of a thin rubber that fits very lightly and loosely in his mouth. Then we glued together pieces of leaves and a fun green fur yarn.
Step 6: padding and securing Seymour garments
Argyle sweater vest
For the Seymour costume, we had to pad and match the clothes to match the type of dress Seymour is wearing. We used a man’s button down shirt with an argyle sweater vest over it. We filled the shoulders and shoulders of these pieces, gluing the filling in place. For the hands we used leather-colored gloves, which we padded and glued to the ends of the sleeves. For the pants, we used grayish pants that we padded completely. We then attached them to the front side of the shirt, so they would hang down over the dog’s legs. We used old shoes and pinned them to the bottom of our pants.
Step 7: Beautify Seymour’s hands
Red permanent marker
We wanted Seymour to be cutting off his fingers to feed plant-based drops of blood from his hand, as in the story. That’s why we decorated one of the light brown gloves with plasters and bandages. We also created blood that he dripped from a finger. We squeezed the glue from the glue gun into droplets onto the aluminum foil. When they dried, we peeled them off and colored them red with a permanent marker. So we glued these droplets on one of the fingers.
Step 8: Seymour accessories
Light brown baseball cap
To finish off Seymour’s costume, we found accessories to look like the character. We added a short dark wig and a beige baseball cap to his hair. Finally we added glasses, which are Seymour’s signature look.
Step 9: Create a background for a small shop
Wooden gift wrap
Facade of the plastic door
Toy cash register
We wanted to create a background to match this scene, take pictures and show them to people. We wanted to create the florist shop where “Shop with horror movies” takes place. We found some old shelves and added plastic pots with fake flowers. We have also created a platform that Seymour can sit on. We used a solid box, which we covered with wood grain pattern wrapping paper. We added an inscription on the dirt, which we printed in a fun font from the computer and glued it on. We added the door that we made by attaching the plastic facade of the door to the foam board. We hung a small open / closed sign and attached the cabinet knob to the door handle by pushing it through the foam board and screwing it on. We also added a table with a toy cash register.

While Dragon * Con is generally light-hearted, costumed, fun for the average passenger, there’s a threat of creeping (simulated) danger and horror at every turn thanks to the multitude of horror fans who are on hand with their blood-soaked costumes that I honed for hours right after it was to send a shiver of terror down my spine. Join us as we continue our Dragon * Con 2012 cosplay coverage with some costumes that make a weaker creature lose bladder control if it happens in the dark, AND some unusual freebies from a horror movie!
These faceless nurses from the Silent Hill video game series terrified us as they shuffled towards us in the game as our humble flashlight flickered in the darkness. Obviously, in the game, we blew their cursed heads off, but here at the show, we just stand still, anxious and take pictures of them. The best part about this outfit is that the lack of vision will definitely make it a pain to wear all day. Good for brave women who decide they want to curl up in a ball, it’s worth it!
The pig theme was huge this year! We attribute this to people’s natural fear that bacon will eventually kill them, one way or another! Personally, we’re going to get a heart attack every day from a blackbird-throwing maniac, but that’s just us.
Here’s another pig cosplay. When we took this photo, we observed this freak of nature and really wondered how messed up our imaginations were. Then we realized this guy was just a drop in the ocean and got back to our day! Wearing a costume that limits the use of arms and hands is certainly a commitment, but it seems worth it to achieve the effect. Dude, blue denim overalls don’t look good on anyone, do they?
This Akasha costume from Anne Rice’s “The Queen of the Damned” is more towards the escalator “sexy” than “terrifying”. The costume is very well made and very reminiscent of the one worn by Aaliyah in the original 2002 film. Normally we would have made sense here, but the thought of Aaliyah depressed us a little. So technically Akasha broke our spirits a bit – that crafty vampire temptress!
Not a scary costume, you say? You see, this is a case where everything revolves around props, aka Audrey II. Yep, this cosplay comes courtesy of “Shop with horror movies” complete with Seymour’s bandaged fingers from feeding his own blood to the toothy plant. Fortunately, we were able to take this photo long before Audrey II appeared in “Feed Me The Bloggers!” growth phase.
Finally, we have a man who can take any form of evil and, after a maddening madness, cleverly teases him and cuts him in half with his trusty chainsaw: Ashley Williams! This Ash costume from the ever-spectacular Evil Dead 2 adds just the right amount of blood, ripped clothing, amputations and a chin to bring the iconic Bruce Campbell character to life. There are always a lot of them on Dragon * Con, and hell this was our favorite!
Stay tuned with MTV Geek for more information on Dragon * Con 2012 cosplay! Also, if you’re at Dragon Con this weekend, be sure to stop by our green screen photo booth Marquis(awning level) and take a picture on one of our 16 backgrounds!
