League of Legends – Jinx build-up

League of Legends – Jinx build-up

For Banzaicon 2014 I wanted to enter the contest with my Jinx cosplay~

I´m no big player of LoL as I play Dota 2, but I really like the characters and the lores behind them in every
of these types of games.

This is rather a easy costume to make and it´s one of the cheapest I´ve made too haha

Costume first

Materials used:

– Two different hues of pink, fabric type: Strechy jersey.
– Skai/faux leather/imitated leather
– Belt buckles I was lucky enough to find at a thrift shop in town.
– old shoes
– toy ammo belts I bought from Ebay
– bandaid
– Body-paint Kryolan
– colorful eyeshades
– Pink shoelaces

These are the images I managed to take during my super stress periode before Banzaicon.
The costume is easy and it´s pretty much just a bikini-top with shorts. Most patterns on making
these parts are on the internet or you can trace your own clothes for a easier reference.

*In this image I have made the one stocking that Jinx has.
It´s pretty forward and I used thights-pants to make my pattern.

To make the stripes the stocking has, I decided I just wanted to
paint them on. Thus you need something to hold the stocking up and also
strech it out to the approximate size of your own leg/thigh.


























Here you can see how the Bikini-top fits. The opening is in the front and is held by a

giant belt buckle I found at a Thrift shop. I always save tons on just scavenging their belt sections

and buy cheap belts for their buckles.
The Ammo belt was directly sewn onto the belt.
Belt is made out of faux leather which is a bit strechy.

The leather sleeve and gloves are made out of the same fabric as the belts and the one
part of the Bikini.
The pink is all the Jersey fabric I found at the Norwegian store: Stoff&Stil for the Norwegian
cosplayers who might wonder.














The shorts was the thing that took the longest to put together, but was rather easy.

I used one of my own shorts to trace onto some baking paper and made the different stripes
for the two pinks I was gonna use.
I cut them all out from the original pattern, so remember to number them and keep them in order.
it might end up very wrong and uncomfy if you cluster the order and get a part wrong.













And this is how it looks after you pinned all the bits together.

notice that all the pieces are somewhat different, so that is why keeping them in order is really important.
This is only one of the sides tho.

Sew both parts finished before sewing them together : )














The shoes were easy enough. just thread in the pink shoelaces.

I bought mine at a 100Yen shop in Japan, but they are usually easy to
find everywhere.


















The wig was the hardest thing to do(in my opinion, because I´m still learning how to do wig-work)

It´s a long wig which I have extended by buying several long extensions from ebay and
local glitter stores.
The bang was done by spraying it to death with different kinds of hairsprays, some gel
and hairdrying.

The length of the wig is about 160cm 😀 and I´m only 158cm












Shock gun

Her shock gun was very questinable while trying to find good references.
Even the in-game and concept arts didn´t really show it well and appearantly for
many other cosplayers it was a bit up to our own imagination how we did it.


– Gashapon ball
– Non-transparent plastic sheet
– hot glue
– hair curlers
– Leds
– a toy gun/revolver
– pizza cardboard
– fun foam
– Eva foam

here you can see that I have opened the toy gun and modded in some Leds and some wires actually
going into the handle and made a push button so I can activate it easly while «pretending» I´m using the trigger.
The Leds are stuck in a piece of EVA foam.



The hair rolls were cut apart and I tried my best to push them in with the hot glue (also without buring myself),
so that is why it looks a bit messy on the inside (sorry)…




Making fishbones was a both fun and a bit frustrating experience.
It learned me to work with the cheapest materials ever existing.

Free Cardboard!

Yes! Cardboard is magical and so underrated 😀


– Cardboard(a lot of it)
– Masking tape/paint tape
– Glue gun
– wood glue
– water
– torn up newspaper bits
– PVC pipes
– fishing nylon(I think this is the right word for it? no?)
– transparent fimo
– small flashlights or leds
– Cardboard tupe from hardware shops

First of I make the basic shapes for the bigger parts and gets the
length I want before I start properly, fitting the bits and fixing minor things.
To make smooth curves on cardboard, just bend it carefully until the surface is the wanted shape.

This is mostly how I buildt the different parts up.
It helped to get the 3D feel of the parts instead of them just being
plain and flat.



I covered all the pieces with a mix of wood glue and a little bit of water.
Brushed it on with a unwanted paintbrush and let it dry.
When all the pieces are dry, do the same over again with a mix of the glue and water
exept this time you don´t add on the newspaper bits.
the glue mix works as a type of coating/gesso for your project and makes it easier to paint and work
with afterwards.



















































The paint work took overral about 30 hours to finish. one session lasted 16 hours of only painting,

forgetting that I´m just a humanbeing and need food and to visit the toilet. Watching a serie worked out really
well for once and of course I watched Moomins as it was on about 70 episodes 😀 yay!






















When it all was done, and hinged together we could install the lights inside the eye sockets.

The eyeball itself is made out of transparent fimo which I bought off from ebay.
The lights started out as Leds, but is now changed with 2 small flashlights : )

CaveStory – Quote headset tutorial

At the moment I´m working on a cosplay for Alcon which is just around the corner, 5th of september to be exact in England.

Since I´ve promised myself to make more «lighter» cosplays for better transportation and easier access I decided that I wanted to make one of my favourite pixel game characters, Quote from CaveStory from both PC and 3Ds.

His headset has different versions, all depends on fanart, game versions and concepts. So I decided that I had to borrow some designs and twerks from both here and there to make it somewhat interesting.

The materials you need is the following:

– 6mm foamboard/Funfoam/Craftfoam(Norwegian = Mosegummi)
– Gesso paint, white
– Acrylics: Green & Yellow
– Gluegun and glue
– regular paper – for pattern making
– headband(this part I didn´t include as it is pretty much to glue the finished pieces onto the headband as they will fit you.


Quote headset

1. Use 2 glasses in different size

2. Cut out the templates you need.

3. I chose to do some fancy detailing on mine, so I cut the smaller circles in half.

4. Cut out all of the bits you need and perhaps some extra in case you need.

5. Glue the thin foam part around on the edge of the biggest circles you made.

6. Glue everything on as you want.

7. Put dat gesso/heavy acrylics on and let it dry. Do this at least 2 times or maybe 3. Depends on how thick you apply.

8. When dry, paint them finished with the base color. Yellow is a part of the design sometimes as i mentioned how different the versions could appear. On mine I chose to paint the edges on the half circles yellow.

9. Glue the pieces onto the headband. Make sure they hang on comfy before gluing them on.

and VOILA!

Quote headset!

Bowser Shredding [30.09.12]

I will be jumping a bit in time and post about this one thing I both hated and enjoyed doing.

Shredding up some of my costumes to make space.

Bowser have been laying on top of my closet for about 2 years and only taken space.
I needed to do something about it, and not by sending this huge thing back home to my mum´s place XD hahaha

This gave me the oppurtunity to open up my old creation and see what I´ve been using to assemble it, as I could recall myself stuffing this one with a lot of different materials.
You can call it at… backwards progress line as I have tried to take as many images as possible while carving this up like a Hunter from Monster Hunter X)

pulled off some of the spikes to reveal the fabrics true color hue. As you can see… This have gotten dusty over the years XD 


The chestplate. This was basicly foam glued on to a cotton sweater and covered with fleece fabric.

Bowser coming out of his shell!
A pillow and some scrap fabrics inside to make the shape. wow… I don´t remember this, or these colors since I made Skullkid and Zidane :O

Scrap foam inside the while ring around Bowsers shell.
ewww, forgot that foam turns yellow after some time.

The entire backshell carved and ready for the garbage bin.

Foam inside the chest plate.
I carved the «muscles» into the foam and pushed the fabric in while gluing with a gluegun.

Carving done so far. Now for the lower part.

And here is the lower part!! TA-DA! Best packing ever XD

The legs were pretty much boots I´ve made which I covered with the trouser part.
These were actually quite comfy to walk around in : ) 

This is the insides of the trousers.
Pretty much a jeans, with glued-on foam parts to make a more monster-ish feature on my legs.

the legs after carving the fabric off 

And now we will go for the head! I really regret how I made this.
It could have been SO much more human friendly than this XD


The horns were originally from a prop viking helmet which can be bought from funny stores.

hair, underjaw and horns removed and this just looks really nasty D:

More fleece removed.

This is the back of the «foam shell» which I start with before covering it with more foam bits
and shaping. Making it like a bucket over your head.

ere is the inside of this monster. I dunno how I survived in this during Desucon 2010


Here is the entire head spread out. *shudder*

So this is the carving progress of Bowser I buildt during 2009-2010
and won the second prize at Desucon 2010.
A remake of my first costume I made in 1998 which got burned by an accident
while cleaning out our basement XD




I hope you enjoyed reading and looking at images : )
