Second up for this Halloween celebration is Stocking Anarchy from the anime Panty and Stocking. Panty is my cosplay partner in crime, BlackKrystel.


This cosplay I almost entirely made by myself.

The top I found at vintage shop in Manhattan. But the make is pretty simple here’s a link to how to make princess sleeves. I decorated the end of the sleeves with white fabrics and white lace. I decorated the collar of the shirt with white lace.

Under it I wore a regular white button down and tied a blue satin ribbon around the collar to make a bow.

For the skirt I used one of my skater skirts as a stencil. I used a thicker fabric than the normal cotton fabric I usually use to match the thickness of the shirt.

For the stockings I bought them from Amazon ($9.95). The wig I also bought on Amazon ($18.88).IMG_3507.JPG


I used Sugar Pill Pressed Eyeshadow ($13) in ‘Poison Plum’ on my eye brows. On my eyes I used ‘Poison Plum’ and different shades of purples from the BH Cosmetics 120 Pallette 1st Edition ($16). On my inner corner I used ‘Dust’ from the Naked 3 Palette ($54).

I used the Kat Von D Tattoo Line in ‘Trooper’ ($20) and for mascara Benefit Roller Lash Mascara ($24). I topped it off with Ardelle Demi Wispies fake lashes.

My lipstick is NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream ($6) in ‘Istanbul.’

Honekoneko Walkthrough:

fotorcreatdI made Stocking’s cat, Honekoneko, from scratch. I used cotton fabric for the body and felt for eyes and circles on the body.

jkn.jpgI started off my drawing a stencil and using different reference photos to get a good idea how the cat looked all around.

I cut all the pieces using my stencil. I started to attach the decorations, i.e. the eyes and the design on the front and back. I sewed the black design and the non-circular eye. The circle black eye, the two black circles, and the inner triangles of the ears I glued using Beacon’s Magna-Tac 809, which is my favorite fabric adhesive.

After doing the details I attached everything (note when attaching the ears, tail, legs, and arms make sure they are in-between the front and back piece right side out, so when the bigger pieces are turned right side out they are on the right side.)

Sword Walkthrough


I used insulation foam to make the sword, which I got from Home Depot but it can be purchased at any home improvement/hardware stores. (Example) I drew the shape of each piece of the sword; the blade, the handle, and the guard. I cut the shapes out and carved the the rounded edges with a sharp knife. To make it smooth I used fine and coarse sand paper.

I covered the sword with gesso to prime it and then painted the design using acrylic paint.
