A few convention photos of my Bayonetta costume!

Photo credits are divided between: (Top to Bottom) :iconmvsarno: for the first two, :iconaragashi: for the middle three, and :iconobsidianoverlord: for the last one.

This costume was a huge undertaking for me and I was very happy with the results. I designed the pattern for the suit and use a combination of 3 differing spandex vinyls: 4 way shiny black, 4 way black pleather, and a 2 way in grey gunmetal. There is roughly 14 yards of chain on the entire costume.
Each of the 6 hanging moons (2 small, 4 large) were made out of craft foam which was sealed and covered in several layers of acrylic paint.

The guns were my first attempt at a serious weapon prop (Yoko's gun was mostly made of cardboard and duct tape so I don't count that lol) I used a thick foam for the base handle and foam board for all the large details, the barrels are PVC piping (from my Yoko gun!). Joint compound was used to fill in any holes or uneven surfaces and then they were sprayed red. I made all of the smaller details using epoxy clay and hand painted everything either gold or black as needed.

The shoes were also designed by me. I bought a pair of basic pumps and cut off the sides. Then I covered what remained in the shiny black vinyl and made the straps and ankle bands.

My wig was made using a medium base and by constructing a foam core for the beehive, which was covered in loose hair, chain, ribbon (with all hand painted symbols), and sew/glued on to the base.

Please feel free to ask questions of the construction if I left anything out! I learned a lot from this project and plan to apply it to the Bayonetta2 costume I will start in the fall :D

Happy Cosplaying!

Hey, its Mark Sarno (of M. Sarno Industries). I noticed a couple of those shots might be ones I took. Did you want the full size files for those? If so, message me on FB with an email address and I'll shoot them over to you. Or a link to them in DropBox, whatever works.

It's ok, it's a rinky-dink phone, so it's to be expected. It was just annoying that I lost one of the best cosplays at ACE lol A.K.A. yours.

how do you put the bayonetta pistol on the shoes?
xsakichanx Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
There are screws going through the barrels into the shoes
