C.C.

Character: C.C.
Variation: DVD Cover Illustration
Series: Code Geass (Anime and Manga)
Debuted: Metrocon 2010

Construction Notes:  Another big fancy puffy dress!  I can’t help it, they’re kind of my thing.

I used Baby Silk for the large majority of this costume (and chiffon).  I loved the way the Baby Silk flowed like butter, and it didn’t have an obnoxious shine to it – in fact, it was nearly matte.  I used lace on certain parts of this costume to add interest, like on the bodice and the sleeves.

The pattern I used was for a fairy costume, but I altered it drastically.  The skirt is a full circle skirt, since I wanted to be able to get epic sitting-down shots where my skirt was all fanned out around me.

Personal Thoughts:  So, Mattissimo talked me into making these outfits (the counterpart to our Euphemia and Suzaku costumes), but I was hesitant because I didn’t want to be repetitve with cosplaying as different characters from the same artwork.  But in the end, I really wanted to cosplay as C.C. again, and I thought these costumes would be good to wear to Metrocon of that year.  And I’m always a sucker for a big fancy puffy dress.  I also made Matt’s Lelouch costume so that we could enter the costume contest as a duo.
