I am a huge "Supernatural" fan so I wanted to do a "Supernatural" cosplay taking advantage of rule #63 (or as you put it changing the gender) and to make it stand out even more we added a steampunk twist. I will be Sam and my friend is cosplaying as Dean. I made 2 corsets-- one completely leather-- and made the patterns for the corsets, made two steampunk style skirts making the pattern as well for one of those and greatly altering a store bought pattern for the other, I made one of the shirts (and the pattern for that shirt), and finally made many of the accessories (including a leather shoulder holster) to go along with the costumes.
The costumes are made from a cotton twill, polyester satin, and a lot of leather.
I also made my brother a costume to go along with our theme (he is cosplaying as Castiel) , but he isn't gender bending just adding the steampunk twist. For his costume I made a turn of the century suit, a cravat/tie and some spats. His suit is made of a brown cotton corduroy, the shirt is a lightweight cotton (I didn't make this, my mom did, but it is also period correct), and the spats are a cotton twill lined with a blue cotton fabric. I made his tie out of a blue taffeta.
I am very excited to show off all my hard work in just 20 short days!
