Inspiration: Morrigan is so awesome and it helps that she's one of my boyfriend's favorite characters, this cosplay came about with him constantly reminding me that Morrigan has other outfits than just her standard fight gear. The choice for this outfit was a no brainier since we often would randomly watch the Darkstalkers Anime and it quickly became one of my favorite alternate outfits! It's super classy with the normal sassy Morrigan flair, plus I get to have cute batty bat buddies! ^_^

Favorite Aspect: My batty-bat clasp, he is made from resin. It was a joint venture between me and my boyfriend, Sephygoth. He designed, sculpted, cast & painted the head and I sculpted the body and picked out the attachments. He then he took the body and used his magical resin & casting skills on it. He was also responsible for the final assembly of the piece as a whole. ♥

Least Favorite Aspect: Making sure I'm fully secure in the shirt before stepping takes some time...^^;

Easiest Task: Trimming the wig since all I had to do was wear it wile my boyfriend Sephygoth trimmed it to the proper length.

Hardest Task: The shirt. I made a tailored "button-down" shirt without the buttons, fit to be worn with a gap in the middle. I drafted the base pattern, based off a bunch of shirt patterns I had, working on it until I was fully happy with the look and fit. The sleeves and cuffs I had to draft from scratch for the exact look. I did get some input from my boyfriend, Sephygoth, on the patterning of the collar and I combined both of our ideas into the look and lay of her collar.
