Nurse Joy Cosplay

Hi Steffi! I want to show you how I made my steampunk Nurse Joy cosplay that I wore to Tucson Comic-Con. It took about a month to make and it turned out super awesome!

Nurse Joy Cosplay Supplies

You’ll need patterns and fabric, sewing supplies, and some steampunk bits. I used a simple dress pattern and made her apron as a corset top. My mother-in-law was a huge help here! I’m still a sewing noob.

Lots of sewing! We altered the sleeves of the dress by using a pattern for a different dress and we combined two of the corset options together, as well as incorporating leather; Yes, I was trying to make things as difficult as possible.

The gears on the eyelet holes are glued on and the buckles are sewed on. Everything is lined and beautiful!

Then I made spats. Aaaand I sewed my “brilliantly put together” ribbon and elastic frill on backwards. You’re supposed to see the pink ribbon, but it’s on the wrong side. So I had to undo it all. I ended up finding some pink lace later anyway so it worked out better 🙂

My hat was crocheted and I added some little dangly-bits to it. A vial of blood and feathers, you know. There’s just a simple hair clip attached through the yarn that was easy to wear.

Don’t forget a prop! I crocheted a fancy Chansey.

And done! It was a huge success at comicon and a lot of fun to wear, minus the heels which made my toes go numb after all day.

Brock found me!

Bonus: Grayson was Lt. Surge and here’s a couple in-progress shots of his cosplay.

He built Raichu’s cage and ran wiring to his hands to weaponize himself and I made Raichu 🙂
