Here is my little crafting and sewing walkthrough for my Dragon Age Origins Morrigan costumes. As you might know, Morrigan is my ultimate favorite character from the Dragon Age franchise. I already made the ball dress she wears in Dragon Age Inquisition, you can see the pictures here. It took me a while to be confident enough to dare make and wear her DAO outfit which shows quite more skin, but here we are 🙂
I started with her draped shawl, i had the fabric in my stash for years for this poject exactly, it is a heavy, slightly shiny jersey knit. I experimented without patterns until i had he shape i wanted and here is the result :
The skirt is made out of leatherette and every single belt is handmade. It was hell !! For the bra, i simply use a black bra from my closet and customized it with ribbons and beads. For the necklace i made the basic shape with eva foam, then i found pretty beads online and made the fangs with “patarev”, it is a clay that stiffens by drying.
Finally i made some bracelets with leather scraps and studs i had in my stash. I painted and assembled the necklace, i know it is not very good, but for me it was enough (i try to get better at painting i swear !). And for her scepter, my friend Hakkai let me borrow her Malificient scepter, and i customized it with whool, pearls and feathers.
And here is a little backstage pic of the result, with all the team we have gathered for the shooting !
