Persona 4 - In Heaven's Dungeon by y-o-s-s-i Persona 4 - In Heaven's Dungeon by y-o-s-s-i
Here's the first shot of my new costume: Margaret from Persona 4.

I had already decided to cosplay her last year and was happy to find great Velvet Room siblings in my sister, who cosplayed Elizabeth and Videros, who was Theodore. We debuted the costumes last Saturday at Bookfair Leipzig. I will post pictures of our whole group soon!

About the costume:
The most difficult part was propably to find nice fabric and I ended up using quilted lining. I like the result, but, well, wearing a fully wadded and lined costume on a warm and sunny day certainly wasn't the brightest idea. (You can't see the quilting on this picture and the blue fabric also looks pretty much black under the artificial light, but I promise you'll be able to see everthing just fine in my next deviantion. I just wanted to submit a full body shot first.)
The next problem I faced was the pattern, as Margaret's costume is something between a coat and a dress and I've never sewn anything like it before. Once I figured everything out, it went rather smoothly, though.
The big buttons are actually wooden weels for model making which I painted and attached to the coat with velcro, so I could easily take them off for washing and ironing.
The tarot cards were scanned from the artbook, then printed out and laminated for more durability.
The wig was also styled by myself and was actually sewn together from two seperate wigs.

I was about to inquire about your wig. Is so perfect for Margaret!! Great job. 
The button idea is also great. I never thought about using wooden wheels. I was going to cast them in acrylic, but is a lot more of work xD

Great Margaret all the way <3

Thank you very much!
I sewed together two seperate wigs for my Margaret wig:

It's been two years since I bought them and they were from a German ebay shop, so I can't give you any links, but if I had to redo it today, I'd get a lace-front wig and cut and style it myself, I guess.

To be quite honest, I was just lucky to find those wheels. I was (and still am) too much of a chicken to try out casting and found them by accident in a children's store...

Good luck with your costume!

Vielen Dank! Ich selbst find's noch ein wenig suboptimal, vor allem wegen technischer Mängel, die sich aber nun mal nachträglich schwer beheben lassen, aber prinzipiell bin ich auch sehr zurfrieden mit den Bildern, die wir dieses Jahr gemacht haben ;)

VERY nice costume. The hair kinda makes you look like Marylin Monroe. (Which is NOT a bad thing, mind you.)

I remember Margaret having... longer hair.

Yeah, that's how I rembered her hair, too, until I took a closer look at the reference when I cut the wig. Her hair actually is somewhere between chin and shoulder length ([link]). Browsing through reference pictures now I can also see that the lenght varies on every artwork... The wig really does look a bit too short in this picture, due to the lower angle and the bright lights in the background ;)

Those are tarot cards for three of Yu's S-Links. I'm seeing The Emperor, the Lovers, and.......I can't make out the last one.
