Bustle Cage Tutorial by fangirlasylum Bustle Cage Tutorial by fangirlasylum
hello everyone!!!! since everyone enjoyed my other tutorials so much, i decided to make another one. I took the pictures for thing a loooooooooonnnnnngggg time ago when I was making my Queen Chrysalis costume for fan expo. I have been really busy since then and never got a chance to make it. Be careful when using an exacto knife because I cut my fingers a lot. If you use this tutorial plz credit me or leave me a link, I would love to see what you come up with ^^

Oh this looks fantastic!! We've been debating on trying to buy one for a stock shoot, but making one would definitely be easier (and lord knows I spend enough time at home depot lol). So yes, thanks so much for this!

Can you drape fabric over this? I'm trying to make an open front cage skirt and I think I'll use this as the method but I'm not 100% sure yet

it is possible to drape fabric over it, but I recommend that you make your starting point closer to your tummy, that way it is easier to see the fabric more from a front view

Amazing and thorough tutorial! This is so easy to follow, which is much appreciated by someone who takes forever to understand things like me! I'm not sure if I would be brave enough to wear anything with a bustle cage although I absolutely *LOVE* them and the one you have made here. Maybe I will gain some confidence and do this - it just looks so tempting not to! If I do, I will definitely credit and link.

You must have looked phenomenal as the queen of the changelings! Being this innovative with the cosplay must have made for an awesome time! And congratulations on the very earned DD! I cannot wait to check out your other tutorials and hopefully a picture of the Queen Chrysalis costume!

don't worry I know how you feel, most of what I know is self taught so sometimes when I look at tutorials, I get easily confused. I wanted to make them easy to understand so that everybody could make them. I also love bustle cages they are so fun to wear, but I am going to warn you. If you ever wear these try not to be in a crowded area because they take up a lot of space and you don't want to hit anybody. Other than that they make a lovely addition to one's ensemble :D
