Kallen Code Geass by HoodedWoman Kallen Code Geass by HoodedWoman
First let me thank the person who took the photo itself: Mab @ RisingSun.net

Second, my costume. It was a lot of fun to make. I've never attempted to make shorts before but luckily the pattern was easy enough to make so I had no trouble!
Kallen is a really strong female character that has her own share of problems. I really love her as a character is concerned and was excited when I my boyfriend suggested Code Geass cosplay.

Code Geass is one of my favorite Clamp series. I love the politics in it. To be honest, I was a little afraid to make this outfit. I was worried about the actual fit. However, I was more than happy to find out, as I went along, that it was a lot of fun to make and wear.

I learned a lot from this costume:
This was my first time sewing shorts, so that was nice.
Also, make sure you buy the right bias tape....so you aren't hand sewing it all on. >.< I got single fold instead of double because that was the perfect color.

I love Kallen. Until the middle of the last episod my heart could no decide between CC or Kallen. Just to say i'm very very difficult on Kallen cosplay...
And you're just perfect.
I named you "official Kallen for now and forever".

This is simply amazing! You are actually my Kallen-role model. I plan to cosplay her this summer but I'm just not quite sure where to start. I seriously hope that my costume will end up at least a bit like yours. (:

What a beautifully made costume! And it sits very well on your body as well.

Do you mind if I ask what materials you chose for it?
Reply
:iconhoodedwoman:
HoodedWoman Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2009
Thank you kindly, I really appreciate the kind words.

Oh no, no problem at all. For the beige body suit I used a canvas or duck cloth, since I wanted something with little give and body to it. I figured it was the heaviest material I could go with and still be happy with the fit.

As for the burgundy seen lining the arm warmers, leggings, and undershirt I went with a knit. I double layered the leggings to add body since it seemed a little thin with just one layer.

Then the white arm warmers I made with some left over duck cloth I had from another costume. They were too big right until I lined the inside with the knit, then they fit quite nicely.

Wow, that was a lot more detailed that I expected! Thankyou for the response. My friends are doing a Code Geass group and have asked me to cosplay Kallen, and this is the only version of her costume I like! After a serach of dA, your cosplay seemed the most well made so I figured you'd be the best to ask ^_^

Thank you for the details, it will really help :)

Yeah, sorry after re-reading it...I see I just kind of went on a small rant there. Still glad to hear that it might be helpful. If you find you have any questions while you are making yours let me know. I'll try and help all I can.

Good Luck and I will look forward to seeing yours!

You should do it! Her pattern is quite easy to modify from others...such as the shorts and top patterns!

I would supply you a pattern if I had one. Unfortunately, I use Muslin to supply myself patterns. I would be more than willing to explain how I went about sewing it if that would help!
