Jurassic World! My Cosplay…
My friend Amanda and I did a little cosplay at the Jurassic World premiere. The movie was incredible!
I altered these pieces which were all found at the thrift store. I wanted to sort of resemble Chris Pratt’s character (teal shirt, brown leather vest) but then make it look like a park employee so it was a little more obvious.
The shirt I altered to my size and dyed it a darker, almost turquoise blue. Then I added a Jurassic World security patch on one sleeve and an Isla Nublar Veterinary Services patch on the other.
The vest started out as a khaki jacket. I removed the sleeves, one of the front pockets, and the collar. Then I hemmed the armholes and around the neckline. After this I dyed it a few times; it didn’t get as dark as I wanted even though it was 100% cotton. I even added black to the brown dye mix, but no luck. Must be a strange cotton :) And apparently the thread is polyester because that didn’t dye — even when I used iDye Poly to try and darken it. 100% cotton, oh please. *shakes head*
After that I added a Jurassic World patch to the place I removed the pocket, and I had a hole to cover up, so I sprayed some silver stars and added them there.
I spent some time in Photoshop making us IDs and printed them on photo paper, then attached them to lanyards. I did a really quick 5-minute scar makeup because I was running behind on time, but it worked from far away :)
