Thanks! :D I made it myself. :3 I list details in my construction on my Cosplay FAQ page. Let me know if you have any additional questions!
I know this was supposed to be a complement but… Why would you hate cosplays, though? :[ Like, cosplay is for fun, we’re all nerds dressing up in costume, why the hate? I bet you would have hated my first version of the costume when I was 15 and didn’t know much of anything about making things like that. :[
There are different types of cosplayers and different levels in each type, but we’re all constantly changing and growing and getting better as long as there are people who support and encourage us to do so. *u*
And you know, maybe you don’t actually “hate” the cosplays that people do of her, maybe you were just indifferent to them and that was just a bad word choice, but that’s just something I don’t like seeing. :C
I am extremely happy that you liked my cosplay, though! But a lot of credit for that dramatic photo has to go to the photographer (prototypem.deviantart.com) who got the angle, lighting, and timing perfect in order to achieve that image.
I’m just a nerd in a costume. lol
Throwback Thursday: My Red-Raven costume from…’09 I think. The construction was pretty shoddy, but the eyes lit up with LEDs :)
SO COOL! I wanted to do something similar to this with my Raven, but just her white glow-y eyes.
I just made my cosplay faq this morning with pictures included. :] I believe your questions can be answered in that post! And let me know if you have any specific questions that I didn’t cover!
I made it. :3
I’m not very good at explaining things, so here’s a picture!
The cape itself is patterned as a quarter circle. If your fabric is wide enough, you can cut it out as drawn above. If not, you can cut it out as an eighth of a circle(where I drew the dashed line). In the end, the cape will be a half circle and drape nicely. :]
As for the hood, it’s pretty simple. The drawing shows the pattern drawn in profile. The dashed line is what most hood patterns look like, but for Raven you need the point, so just re-draw it to get the shape you want. :]
IT’S TIMES LIKE THIS WHERE I WISH I HAD A TIME MACHINE.(this post is already at 15,000 before adding this) OTL
I am entered for this year’s Otaku House Cosplay Idol with this image and I need people’s help! I don’t know if I have any chance of winning, but I want to get as far as I can!
You can also help by spreading this image more with this new text added. Or sharing here on facebook!

LOL person on facebook page telling me my body paint isn’t the right color for Raven because the lighting gives it have a blue-ish tint.
“You think you’re alone, Raven….. but you’re not….”
Day two at Wondercon, waiting in line for the adventure time panel!! :)
the internet at my hotel for wondercon is $12.99 a night. LOL NO. I’m in the lobby right now where it’s free, but I don’t see myself spending too much time down here. xD I’ll log on when I can from my phone, but otherwise I’ll talk to you guys after the weekend! :D
btw, here’s my cosplay line-up, say hi if you see me!! I’m horrible at recognizing people. orz
Did another night-shoot of this costume at AOD. It’s kind of funny that I only have night-shot photos of this cosplay. lol
Raven was my first cosplay back in the day and it was awful. It’s so nice to see how much I’ve advanced not just in costume quality but in posing/modeling as well. Even though I’m older, I think I pull off the Raven look better than I did when I really was 14. xD

Just messing around, thought I’d sketch out miss Raven from “Teen Titans”.
I loved that show.
BEHOLD MY GLORY. I AM RAVEN. I CAN FLY.
I’m still not sure why so many people are reblogging this, but you know what I’m ok with it.
SPREAD MY MAGNIFICENCE LIKE I SPREAD MY WINGS TO FLY
glad to see this is still making the rounds.
