My friend and I recently attended a new spy themed LARP game called; Aces and Operatives!
I was a body guard for the CIA, turned into an Assassin Operative working undercover for the enemy
It was a great excuse to dress up fancy, although I was already sold at the canapes and Poker!
I bought this Grecian style green dress for just £1 at a jumble sale
However, unfortunately it was much too big for me, so I adjusted it to fit me.
As you can see the dress was about double my size!
I discovered someone had let the dress out previously, using the added gold material at the back
I removed the gold added back piece and put darts in fit myself
I then added a zip as I had to remove the previous hook and eye fastenings
This was my first Cosplay, my mum helped me make the trousers!
I built the Katanas out of scrap materials
- Red trousers with yellow flames
- White belt with pockets
- Bandages crop top
- Red wig
- Green hair accessory
- Blue Fairy Tail symbol tattoo
- Duel Katanas
Fairy Tail – フェアリーテイル, Fearī Teiru, is a Japanese manga series by Hiro Mashima
How-to-guide: Duel Katanas
- I bought a long piece of plastic and cut it in half
- I created the handles out of cardboard and papier-mâché
- I used bandages as a top layer on the handles to create a more realistic texture
- I then painted it according to the original design
Here is a photo to quickly show you what face-painting materials I use

This beautiful long 18th or 19th century style dress, that reminds me of Jane Austen style costumes
I found it in a second hand shop called Traid, in Brixton
Rey (from the new Star Wars movie)
I love Reys feisty independence and bravery
