Costume breakdown time!
Pictures by @ordinaryobsession​ Cosplay and editing by me
I am terribly impatient when it comes to sewing, so I thought “I’m going to buy the base clothes and do some stuff that forces me to do slow work which really requires patience” and... I didn’t hate every second of it, but many seconds of it haha 
So first of all I looked at many existing Nina cosplays and tons of fanart to see how other people interpreted the Kefta. The rule of thumb seems to be base dress + an added long-sleeved coat/Kefta and a black belt. After some trial and error I found just the combination I wanted online. Then I looked at a lot of high fashion and traditional slavic (military) clothing and decided gold embroidery, fancy trims and soutache is the way to go. 
I wanted to keep the base dress relatively simple because you can’t see most of it, so I only added the gold trim to make the neckline more interesting and some wedding-dress lace for the aesthetic. 
For the outer dress I really wanted to emphatise the whole heartrender thing without it getting too tacky. Enter the giant tacky heart consisting of... I think around 10 different kinds of beads I added to the back based on this heart brooch I found on etsy. The soutache hearts were more of an afterthought. Speaking of soutache: It was my first time doing something with it and turns out pinning it down was an even bigger challenge in patience than the big heart. I originally wanted to sew it all down by hand but decided even my patience challenge has limits which is why it looks a bit wonky in places but whatever. 
The last big thing is the hand embroiderered leaves on the neckline. They go all around the collar and took some time to do as well. 
Overall my whole plan was Red! Gold! Fancy! Feminine!  and I think I definitely succeeded with that

We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third
We’re shooting Nina tonight

I took my Nina cosplay on an adventure over the weekend and I lquite ike the results. This is more of an outtake. But I’m slightly obsessed with this one.
Are you ready to get your hearts ripped out and stepped on a second time in the Netflix series?

It’s not natural for women to fight.” 
“It’s not natural for someone to be as stupid as he is tall, and yet there you stand.”
Nina is an extremely expressive character and I didn’t want to just stare blankly into the camera while looking pretty but transport some of that expressiveness. So have some more of my “sitting in front of a beige wall with weird shadows” series - pulling faces edition

Today is the release date for King of Scars!! To celebrate the end of a long wait I actually did a full makeup and costume test for my girl Nina before Katsucon!! 💕
I have never been more in love with a character, she is just so good and important to me 💕I was a little nervous about how this would turn out because it kind of highlights everything I'm self conscious about in regards to my face and body, but I can't even begin to describe how happy I am with this whole look and how comfortable I feel in my body for once!
Thank you so much to @lbardugo for creating Nina Zenik, and I hope your tour for KoS goes well!!! 💕
❤️ @pearlybae

Someone please stop me from buying wool for an Alina cosplay
I wanted to cosplay her so much after reading the books and now after watching the show I want to even more but I still have fabrics for other projects lying around 😅
Also this close to ordering wool for Nina as well 😅 She's my fav Grishaverse character after all

"I'm the devil's worst nightmare."
Shot some stuff for Nina the other day, and took some updated pics, too! The sun started to set as I took these, which lead to some gorgeous lighting.

Depression? I don't know her. Could a depressed person do *this*?
I loved the Shadow and Bone Netflix adaptation so much I had to go and make a cosplay of everyone's favourite heartrender, our queen Nina Zenik 👑

Also the character I'm portraying is plus-size and is white but I'm not! I'm just cosplaying my queen, it does not mean anything at all
Also like a fancier kefta? A winter fete kefta? I-
