Hand made, I did the bodice while my mom and friend Sue Kelsey did the ruffles, which really made the outfit unique. :D they're great at it. I wish I was good at sewing.


:la: Yup, and I really need to lose at least 20 lbs before I do THAT again. Though I gotta say, Snafu Dave made it SO worth while :D And next time I wear that costume I'll have a gun and some better poses too! :la: and by then I also hope to conquer the use of fake eye lashes lol, I brought some but couldn't put them on.


And I'm honestly dissapointed with the photography, so much so that I may replace this one some time with a better pic of my own. :/ I mean, you can even see the green screen in it, and i had to pay for it. meh. I also don't think I photograph too well. But I'm glad I was the only Mandy there :D it makes me feel special. :la:

Ok, the bodice I bought in the underwire department in a store, could probably be bought in other stores but I went to jcpenny. I had to make sure it fit, and since the fabric stretches and clings tight(good for makin me look thinner and provides support, lol)it was sort of a leotard with no sleeves and some clear detachable bra straps. I then put it on a dummy so that I could draw the red pattern onto the outfit. I pretty much eyeballed the pattern and masked it with some masking tape and then covered the rest of the bodice(not the pattern part because thats where the paint will be sprayed x) with paper or you could use what ever you'd like as long as it protects the rest of it from the red. I then sprayed the blood red spray paint(try to be sure it's rubber based so that it stretches with the fabric). Then sewed on a small red jem that I found at a fabrics store.

Anyway, that was my part, then I helped out with the rest some what. The "buttress" type thing in the back was done with a layer of light, thin, silky black fabric with a layer of red and black tule fabric over it(try to get the lightest in weight), sewn together in a bunched pattern over a slightly stronger, belt like material- the fabric strip; it becomes the buttress and has button snaps on each end that attach to the bodice(also hand sewn is the button snaps) the buttress I made detachable because it's not stretchy in comparison to the bodice. But, if you could find another way to do it that's easier by all means, do it. It was a delicate process sewing on the bunched red and black tule fabric >: / Anyway, then you can cut/rip the fabric carefully to give it that edgy look that Mandy's outfit has.

The armlets, I bought a pair of above the elbow lengthed black gloves and cut the fingers off. After doing that, added the tule and thin red fabric to the tops of the gloves the same way it was done on the buttress.

The rest is pretty simple stuff, wig, black head band, contacts, and some plain black slippers. Oh, and red nail polish c:

I'm not sure if I explained it too well but I hope it helps. If you find other ways to make it by all means have at it. If you have any questions as well feel free to ask. Thanks for asking before ^u^

Oh, wow, that's pretty awesome. I could be wrong, but I can't imagine there's a ton of Bleedman-specific cosplay out there. Kudos on such a unique and relatively obscure choice.
