Winning at Cosplay
I’ve always loved this film but was never a big fan of Buttercup’s main costume, the orange/tan affair that she gets herself kidnapped in. But a couple of years ago I had the job of making a shirt for a Westley cosplayer I hang out with, so when I noticed this dress on a recent rewatch I decided I’d have a look at it!
Fortunately this piece, along with Westley’s costume and Inigo Montoya’s, are currently in the EMP in Seattle. Museums are great as they usually have hi-res photos on the catalogue sites or in the museum’s publicity for new exhibits, and if they don’t there is usually a photographer who has taken them.
The colour is another one where it changes beween how it looks in photos and between scenes in the film, seeming to change from ivory to silver to blue. Personally I’m going for a very light blue if it’s achievable with the fabric I have, and if not ivory will do.
Bodice – cotton pipe on the centre line and edged with narrow silver piping. Mine comes up slightly higher because I’m somewhat larger in the bust. Fit comes first!
