Vi Cosplay revisited

Närcon was a blast and I got to enter NCC (Nordic Cosplay Championship) as a representative for Norway. I can get used to that VIP feeling, with back stage passes and free food. 

With only two month from the nomination to the NCC contest I didn't have time for a brand new elaborate costume, so I made my Vi even more awesome. 


And I have gathered shortcuts to all my Vi tutorials here
Now let's start some new costume adventures!

    1. Hey, the post about steam was not finished when this was first published, but it is out now :D if anything is unclear just ask away. And thank you, I think Vi is the best character to cosplay, so much fun being her ^^

  5. Hi Chrix,
    Awesome cosplay! I was wondering what you did for the stripped leggings? Thank you!

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. I bought striped leggings from ebay. Looks like they don't sell these ones anymore though.

  6. Is there a tutorial for her basic costume? the things she wears under her armor? :D
    I'm dying to do that cosplay but it would be my third cosplay and the most complicated so far ^^'
    IOther question: how long did it took you to finish the costume?

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. Hi, I don't have tutorial for the jackets or hotpants, but you can find photos of the in progress on my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Chrixdesignandprops

      For the corset use one of my other tutorials: http://chrixdesign.blogspot.no/2013/12/big-sister-corset-and-hot-pants.html

      As for how long it took: I first used four months on the first iteration, then I used two more months on upgrading it. So yes, a complicated cosplay, but keep i n mind that I had no guides, so you might be able to do it faster :)

      Slett
    2. okay, thank you :)

      I have a little less than 4 months to finish it, but I have (fortunately) a lot of free time lately, so I'm nearly finished wiith her hands.

      thanks for the guide it is really helpful! And keep up the great work!

  15. Hi!!! I'm someone that done Just 1 cosplay in life, and it was when I was 8 ( I was sooooo cuute people say xD), and i love how did you do The cosplay ( I read about The hands), but my question is: what can I do to change this cosplay? I mean, I'm a man, so I dont know what should I change to make a good cosplay about Vi, but man versión ( sorry if is hard to read this, im not used to write in English). Cheers!

    1. Hi. Love that you are going to cosplay again. To get ideas for how to change Vi to match a male appearance, you should search for "Vi genderbend". There's a lot of great fan art for male Vi online. Also check out what "Fakenerdeboy" has done, his male Vi is really good :) Good luck

  16. how did you make the jacket? i want to do a vi cosplay and the jacket is something im really concerned about making

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. I made a pattern and sewed it. But if you are new to sewing you should buy a commercial pattern and just modify it. Good luck
