REGINA // ONCE UPON A TIME
CHARACTER BUILD PROFILE
Character: Regina, the evil queen
Show: Once Upon A Time
Photographer: The Variant
Developing Time: 15 hours
Date Completed: February 2016
I spent approximately 13 hours working on this costume, and spent a total of $74.01
What you see as the cost of the fabric is micro suede, 7.5 yards, at 12.99/yard retail. I used my 40% off and only spent 59$. For fabric, that's a pretty good deal.
Even though if only took 13 hours to prepare everything, it took almost a year to get it to completion. Why? Well ... just procrastination I guess. I think I just needed that final push to get accessories done.
Some things that aren't really addressed above are all of the things I already had in my closet such as pleather-look leggings, lace-up boots, and pleather corset. If I were to include these in the total it would go up something like 70$ more. And let's not talk about the cost of makeup and hairstuff, since I didn't buy anything specific or extra just for this cosplay except the rigid collodion.
