Series: Attack on Titan Worn to: Katsucon 14, Acen 14, ASTL 14, Kumoricon 14 Status: Active Difficulty: 4/5
After just one episode of Attack on Titan, I became utterly and embarrassingly hooked. I loved everything about the story, especially Eren. When choosing characters to cosplay, I usually gravitate towards the sweet female characters but in this case, I was dead set on cosplaying Eren. I later went on to cosplay Petra and Armin as well!
I started my costume in 2013 and completed it over the span of several months.
The jacket is Tobacco colored twill from JoAnn, and was made using a Kwik Sew pattern with only a few modifications (the length, and adjusting the lapels). Patches were from Seraphita on Etsy. My Eren shirt was made from a thick linen with shoulder pads installed to create a manlier silhouette, my Petra and Armin shirts were purchased/borrowed. The pants were purchased from Aeropostale and are grey-wash skinny jeans. I replaced all of the belt loops with brown elastic, to help my belt blend in more. The brown hip-wrap piece is made from a stretch microsuede from JoAnn, and is permanently sewn together with slits for my belt loops to come through -- this helps hold the wrap, and other pieces of my harness in place by anchoring it to the pants. The boots were purchased from GoJane.com (no longer available) and modified to more closely resemble the uniform.
