Inara Serra - Firefly II by yayacosplay Inara Serra - Firefly II by yayacosplay

Happy Halloween! I wore this costume last night to a party and got these shots in this morning, so it seemed appropriate to share.

Costume made and worn by me at Dragoncon 2010. I am a HUGE Firefly fan and have wanted to dress up as Inara for years. YEARS! Finally for D*C I got a group together and chose to make the red dress from the Episode "Train Job". I used over 5 yards of red dupioni silk on this outfit - so pretty and luxurious. I altered a pattern for the main dress and drafted my own patterns for the sleeves. The dress is serged and lined of course. I ordered three gold jewelry belts from ebay (those are hard to find!) and made them into one. It was nice to be able to use my own hair!

I haven't seen Firefly before, but I can see this and say it's something completely different.

I seems quite natural, and lets the viewer give more relevance to the whole picture (at least in these takes). The fact that you're using your natural hair, along with the dress and jewels helps diffuse and distribute the attention through the whole picture. Even your makeup, poses and expression help capture the whole scene, like if every bit of your cosplay worked in perfect harmony.

This is one of my favourite of Inara's costumes, along with her gown in the episode "Shindig". You did an amazing job of recreating this piece.

This is stunning! I'm browsing around so that I can cosplay as Inara (with my boyfriend as Mal) for next year's MTAC, but I'm not having any luck with finding a credible costume. Do you have any suggestions short of making your own?
