Enchantress by ChameleonCosplay Enchantress by ChameleonCosplay
Marvel's Enchantress at Heroes&Villains con, 26/08/2012.

Had a lot of fun with this one. Lots of firsts - my first comic-book cosplay, first corset I've ever made, first time using craft foam to try to simulate metal, first attempt at painting tights...

Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I think I would have liked the points on the top of the corset to be more exaggerated, and I think I'll redo the gloves before wearing it again, because it was very difficult to bend my arms and ended up damaging the foam.

Hoping to arrange a proper photoshoot for her at some point. I'd love to have photos with an actual background. :)

Hi there! I am currently trying to finish my Enchantress cosplay and have butchered one pair of tights. Could you give me some pointers please? Ha ha.

Hi! Sorry for the delay - I rarely check DA any more :/ Glad to meet another Enchantress ^_^
Mine are actually thick stockings - I cut a hole in the heel and sealed it with fabric glue so that I could wear them over a pair of platform heels. The circles, I'm afraid, I hand-painted with fabric paint while I was wearing the stockings so that they would sit right and not be affected by the stretch. It was the best way I could think of to do them at the time, but the whole process was a serious pain. xD I have plans to make an armoured version in the future, and this time I think I might try having the tights printed.

How did you make your crown?? I'm having so many issues with my amora crown....also, how did you get it to stay on your head? Because it does lay flat on her face, but I don't really know what I'm doing with that :P

Don't worry, I had no idea at first either. It's craft foam covered in the same fabric I used for the corset, and then painted with the same metallic paint. I used liquid latex to glue it to my face - it was the only way I could think of to have it fit the way it does in the comics. And the bonus is it's not that difficult.
Good luck! Hope it works out for you! :)

hi , i'm also working on a enchantress cosplay :)
Very nice work. I was curious, how did you attach/make the rings on the socks?
I'm having a little trouble with that part^^

oh, fantastic! We definitely don't have enough Amoras in the world! :D
Thanks! :)
Oh my goodness, those rings gave me hell. I tried to research other cosplayers, but I didn't manage to find any that had done the rings all that well. What I ended up doing was buying very thick dark green stockings (I think they were 300 denier, just off ebay) and cutting a hole in the heel so I could pull them over shoes with a 5" heel. Yay for extra height! :P
Then all the circles were handpainted in the same metallic green fabric paint that covers the gloves and the belt. I had to paint them while wearing them or the paint would crack when stretched. Thank goodness the pattern is only on the front. It isn't very comfortable painting your ankles for hours while wearing 5" heels, though, just a warning. Have a great TV show on hand to alleviate the monotony. :P

wow painted? :o
very nice effect! And i'll keep the warning in mind, although it is for a friend , so she'll have to deal with it :D
my first idea was cutting rings out another green fabric and attach them on black stockings. But sewing it on is hard, and i'm afraid glueing will not work out :).
Maybe i should paint them too. I only have 2 weeks left! Stress-time!
We're going as Sif, Valkyrie (me) and Enchantress.
ChameleonCosplay Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
yeah...pretty much killed me. I decided it was easier than cutting fabric particularly since I'd have to use something that doesn't fray, or sew a lot of weird seams, and get the circles even, and measure the right size on my legs, and then glue them all on anyway...
The painting only takes a day or two, and the rings actually look like part of the stockings, so I think it's a pretty decent system.
Oh, amazing! Looking forward to seeing a pic of you guys! :D I really hope to meet up with some other Asgardian cosplayers. Most of my other cosplays have been made to be part of a group, but this one I made just because I wanted to. I love her, but I did miss having some other characters around. Maybe one day. :)

the cutting went really well and quick^^ so luckily no problems on that, just the attaching.
I'll give a first try with the glue, if that doesn't work, i'll paint. :)
Nothing as fun as cosplaying in group! Normally it would just be sif and valkyrie. But another friend of mine wanted to join too :)and we wanted to do something more challenging then last year (supergirl and wonderwoman) so we ended up with them 3. I can't wait to wear it ^^
And for you there will probably be a lot more thor and loki cosplayers now? Hopefully you'll be able to wear it in group one day^^

Nice cosplay, don't see Arora done that often! All you need now is a suitable Executioner and Baron Zemo and you'll be set! :)
