Today I’m sharing my newest cosplay venture, Aurora from Child of Light!

If you haven’t heard of Child of Light, it’s a beautiful game (for PlayStation, XBox, and Steam) from Ubisoft. According to the official website,

The duke’s daughter Aurora is dead… and yet, she lives. Join Aurora across the mysterious kingdom of Lemuria on her quest to return home. Helped by Igniculus the firefly, Finn the Capilli and many more, she must defeat the Queen of the Night who has stolen the sun, the moon and the stars.

COSTUME DETAILS:
Dress: Cream jersey knit, and the trim is a gold spandex. I used heat n’ bond on the cut-out shapes on the bottom.

Sword: The base was foam core, held together with glue. I then papier-mâchéd it, used a few layers of gesso to prime, and painted. It was weathered using a sponge and wateredd-down black paint. I used about three layers of mod podge to make it shiny.

Crown: This was my first adventure with worbla! The base shape was foam, and I molded the worbla around it. Then it was primed and painted, and I used sequins and pearls for the details.

Ignigulus: I decided to make Igniculus into a pouch for functionality. He was made out of some scrap blue fabric into a drawstring pouch, and I put LED lights in him to light up.

Wings: These were shaped of wire, then covered in gauze. The wires at the end bent into an “L” shape, and stuck in a little fabric-covered foam. I looped ribbon around the foam, and the wings attached over my shoulders.

I’m really happy with this, and walking around Boston Comic Con with the massive sword was definitely fun. Don’t forget to follow along on my Facebook for all of my progress shots!

    my favorite part of these posts is googling the character you are dressed as because I don’t know and then comparing your costume and looking at all the details you’ve captured :)

    Amazing cosplay. I love the light-up Ignigulus! One of the highlights of my trip to PAX Prime was seeing a little girl dressed at Aurora. So. Cute.

    Holy cow! Looks awesome! I came to know about this cute game a few months ago, when I fell in love with the main image of the princess facing the kingdom. I’ve since then decided to slightly modify the image to make it resemble my daughter a bit more and make a tattoo of it. ♥

    Totally love the cosplay! The sword is aaaaaaaaaawesome!!!!!

    My daughter wants to dress as Aurora. Do you have a pattern for the flowers on the dress?

      Hi Heather! I don’t have the exact pattern that I used, but here’s a link to something I just drew that you can absolutely scale up or down for the size of the dress: http://kylaisinspired.com/images/cosplay/childoflight_pattern.jpg

      Good luck! :) I’d love to see a photo once the costume is complete.
