Nymphadora Tonks Costume by Durnesque Nymphadora Tonks Costume by Durnesque
I decided last minute to go as Nymphadora Tonks for the HP premiere tonight. Not wanting to spend any money, I cobbled this together from pieces and fabric I already owned. (It's good to have a large supply of scrap fabric and old costumes)

She actually does have a second pocket on the right that's not visible in this picture, because it's lower and further to the side than the right pocket I put on. But because my jacket is more symmetrical than hers, it would have looked funny if I'd placed the pocket the same. I decided not to cut the hem like hers because I don't have as many fabric folds so it wouldn't have worked as well.

I've figured out a way to rig my hair (which falls to the middle of my back) into a short style like hers and will spray it purple and pink. I'll post a deviation in costume tonight.

Here's a deviation of the costume WIP: [link]

EDIT: Added myself :)

What sort of fabric did you use?
Also, I'm a huge fan of your hair color here!

Thanks so much! I haven't the foggiest about the fabric. It was done on a rush and I cut up old costumes to make it. :/

I'm going as Tonks for a cosplay event I'm doing security for, and I'm doing the outfit that inspired yours, though I've no idea what to do for her necklace. How did you set yours together?

Mine's strips of fabric with gold buttons attached. It's fastened with a snap in the back. Her's appear to be leather straps, but brown fabric works just as well.

Well thank you very much. Unfortunately, I only have the time and resources to costume by commission or for specific projects. So unless I'm commissioned to make an Elsa, I will not be making her costume.
