Saber Cosplay dress

Added Nov 13, 2008

Adelaide, Australia






this is a dress i made for a friend to resemble an expensive costume on ebay:p

it consists of three different items, including a corset, the actual dress, and the underskit which had to be wired to give it shape. it was also made a wee bit longer then the one in the picture because we thought it wa too short.

Material Notes

i used white shees and black cotton, aswell as a zip and some plastic pipping for the under skirt




Garment Type


ebay for having all the pictures i copied

    I love all the looks. Can you teach me, please??? Especially the skirt to help me with a project I want to start. I want to sew a dress in the design of the 18th century. Your skirt will give me the volume. Topaz

      hey hey there. the under skirt is just a large rectangle gathered into the waist, and then with layers of ruffles where the skirt sits open. i also made a crinolette to give it that much fullness (i made it with just lightweight tulle gathered at the waist and a wire circle through the bottom). i hope that helps somehwat?

    Good job for the Dark Saber (Fate/Stay Night) costume. It would have been great if the cosplayer posed for your picture in her full regalia, stockings, boots, hair, and sword. But over all, Good job! :)

    I prefer your version to the original. Especially the neckline.

    Looks really good. Cosplay outfits can be tricky and I think you did a fantastic job with this copy. The skirt length you chose still goes will the the style of the dress.
