Astrid Hofferson cosplay patterns and tutorial


Digital PDF tutorial and pattern set to help you make your own cosplay costume! Do you want to use the exact patterns that I drafted and used for my own Astrid Hofferson cosplay and read a detailed tutorial book about the whole process with lots of pictures and tips and tricks? Now you can! Read on…


Please choose in the drop down menu if you want the patterns, tutorial or BOTH.


A set of digital patterns (PDF) that you can print out and use to make your own cosplay costume AND two digital tutorial books of a combined 62 pages in which the full creation of the costume is described with lots of pictures and tips and tricks. These are digital files, so there is no physical pattern or book that I send to you. You will need to download the files to your computer and work with them from there

If you buy these PDF’s, you can immediately download them, print the patterns and scroll through all of the tutorial pages on your digital device to help with making your own costumes and props. Some basic crafting and sewing experience is advised when working with the patterns.

All pattern pieces are drawn without seam allowance. So you can choose your own preferred amount of seam allowance.

The pattern is in my own size (I made it and used it for my own cosplay. I’m putting them up online to help as a guide for other cosplayers to make their own cosplay). My size at the time of this costume was M/L. If you want to use it for another size, you can adjust the pattern pieces. I always suggest making a mock-up first and then see if you need to adjust any of the pieces to make it fit perfect for you.
