Hi guys!
I thought it would be a good idea to go through and make a journal entry on how to make an Ahri cosplay. OR pretty much just how I did it:)

*** This is just a tutorial on her TOP. There will be another tutorial on her tails, hair, and shoes and skirt. ***

What you will need:
*3d model is GREAT. I loved having it, since I used her in game art that is! But keep in mind there are differences in the in game models and in the splash art! I use this one ---->
*About 2 yards of your choice of white and red fabrics. I used silk because I really liked the way they looked- it was a little harder to cut because it frays a little- but I like the way it turned out.
* Red and white thread.
* Sewing machine
* Red zipper

(1) You will start by constructing a pattern out of poster board. Allow yourself a few inches on the sides for cutting and for sewing. (You also have the option of making the chest a bit bigger if you feel like being over the top with it and doing cosplay boobs. - I didn't do this, but at some point I may remake the top with this in mind) Also cut out the pattern for your sleeves. They should be a little wider at  both ends.

After you cut out your fabric for the shirt, start by placing the inside part of the fabrics on the outside and than sewing the seems together about 1 cm from the edge. Make sure not to sew all the way to the top or bottom so that you can also sew the top and bottom of the shirt.

(2) You will want to cut a strip of the white and make sure once you sew the edges it will be about 2 inches wide. This should be long enough to wrap around the top of your chest. Start by attaching the white and where they meet in the center of the back cut a line as long as the zipper. ( don't mind the Velcro just yet- has to do with attaching the tails.)

(3) Once the zipper and white strip are sewn into place you can then work on the tassel hanging from the front of her dress. I found a lovely slightly large button at the fabric store which I attached using hot glue to a long strip of red fabric. I also used a white wedding key which matched her bow type thing as much as I could- I painted it red to match. (I sewed the edges) that I painted a gold strip on the bottom.

This completes the first step of Ahir's dress!

Do you have patterns for the golden drawings on the sleeves? I'm having a hard time finding out how to make them :(
Feoranna's avatar
I dont, but maybe I can make something to add along side this tutorial! I didn't use a pattern, I just freehanded them both is why I don't have one.

Also, sorry for the late reply!!! I forgot all about Deviant art, lol.

How did you keep the sleeves on if you didn't connect them to the top? And how long length of the top?  And where did u get the charm at the end or did u make it?

I just hold them up sometimes I double sided tape it to the insides of my arm. 
The top goes to my hip bones- but you just want to make it long enough to hit comfortably under the skirts.
The charm on my tassel part was a special beed I found at a fabric store and I took the other half of a bridal key that seemed the shape I needed, cut it in half and painted it red to match the outfit :)

First off, thank you for putting the effort towards this tutorial! Your cosplays are amazing. I have a question though: how did you make the template? Did you measure your body and transfer it to the poster board?

Do you mean how did I make the pattern for the pieces? 

I just measured myself and then sketched out the shapes needed and did some trial and error.

Honestly- this is the only cosplay that I actually used any patterns for, which is bad XD
