Red Like Roses Fills My Dreams by Sasha-Dee Red Like Roses Fills My Dreams by Sasha-Dee
Photography: Martin Wong
Series: RWBY by Monty Oum
Model & fabrication: Me
Scythe: Jeremy/Arcdragon224

A HUGE thank you to everyone who was apart of this process. Martin was a dream to work with. Thank you to Jeremy, Remi and Robyn for assisting him. And to everyone that gave advice on how to achieve this end look. Sky too high for recommending Martin to us and giving me advice on the corset.

We still want to make the scythe even more complete. But as far as this cosplay is concerned... Martin is a wizard! And through all his efforts Monty himself has already seen the picture! I feel so honored to have worked with Martin and everyone, and I hope this gets him more exposure because his work is stunning.

xoxo

-- Sasha

Nice cosplay. Great pose, too. Might I ask how big the scythe is in comparison to you? I'm trying to make my own model of it. Thanks! ^^

Thank you! I'm 5'1" so... the Scythe is actually much bigger than me haha. I think we made it a little too big. Its probably about 6ft and the staff was 7ft we sized it down to 6ft now. I would say make it your height. its very hard to maneuver at the size we made it.

I looooooovvvee this :iconlove--plz: teach me your ways!!! I'm super new to cosplay. What kind of fabric did you use for the top and bottom?

: > thankk you so so much! <3

The Shirt and Skirt are a black satin. Which photographers beautifully but can be a pain to sew since it puckers if you're not careful with it. So just make sure you pin everything well and it will come out nicely! Otherwise, I would recommend a light wool or a thick cotton in a very rich, dark black. Those fabrics are forgiving and hold their shape very well... The corset is a black pleather.

I really love the costume for Ruby :heart: It's simply stunning~!! I was actually planning on cosplaying her next year :D If you wouldn't mind me asking, how did you make your skirt and top? I can't seem to find any ideas for it... :(

Aww thank you so much! : > This costume was a lot of fun to make.

I actually made a custom shirt and top, I couldn't find the right pattern. The skirt is essentially a circle skirt, folded over several times to get the width and body, then I paced 2 petticoats underneath it. The shirt is more or less a fitted jacket, there are darts on the sides of the bodice so that it is fitted, and then an invisibile zipper down the front. The sleeves are thin at the top and open up towards the bottom, so I did a custom bell sleeve for that. I had a lot of trouble with the skirt and for the fix I'm going to remake it and attach it to the shirt so its all one piece. Everything kind of bunched up around where the corset was. But yes, I would look at fitted jacket and circle skirt patterns. Circle skirts have a handful of tutorials online and youtube! I hope this helps!

Hi Sasha-Dee. Im from the Uk and im planning my own Rwby cosplay in october. I was just wondering where you got the boots from (or how you made/altered them) as im finding this the most difficult part of my cosplay currently.

Thankyou for your help in advance. Your costume looks amazing!

Hey there! The boots actually took me a ton of time to find... I actually scoured Ebay for weeks to find them. Someone was selling their black boots and I was so lucky they were the right size, I believe the company is... "Bongo!" Although I think they were the only ones the seller had : < But as for the modifications... I painted soles with red oil paint (I didn't have acrylic but I would use that instead) as a base and then spray painted over it with Red to get a richer color, and finally gathered red ribbon to give the accent on the top, its just hotguled! (in the event that I ever wanted to use the boots outside of cosplay haha). The laces are a thin red suede and then the buckles on the ankles are a thick leather with just a medium sized silver buckle.

I hope this helps! Ebay is great for things like this, but perhaps Amazon might have something too : > I use both when I cant find the boots at stores in person

Thank youuu! Yes, it was kind of a last minute decision... I fell in love with the character and wanted to show the new series some love! My friend, Jeremy, made the scythe -- still a little incomplete, but we will finish it 100% by Otakon!
