Rose Tyler: The Idiot's Lantern Costume Tutorial: The Wire Purse

ALL CREDIT FOR THIS IDEA GOES TO JESSPORTS IN THIS POST.

When I was looking for resources to make my Rose Tyler cosplay, the above link was one of the tutorials that I found. I really liked her idea of taking a Vandor TV lunch box from eBay and making it into the Wire, so I bought a lunch box and printed a picture of the Wire.


I cut out the wire, making sure it was the right size and shape to cover the picture of Elvis.


I painted a layer of Mod Podge onto Elvis, and another layer on the Wire's wrong side.



I then carefully smoothed the Wire onto the screen. Unfortunately, it wrinkled a  bit because of the curved nature of the screen.


Maybe the wrinkles are just the lightening-like face remover beam things she uses?

After drying, and now finished:




This concludes my Idiot's Lantern tutorials!
