Immediately below the main illustration, there’s a row of small images. These show the individual components we used to put together the costume (or comparable substitutes). The pictures are actual product images from vendors, so sometimes they’re weird. Bizarre facial expressions on models, blurry eBay photos, that sort of thing.

Below the images there’s some introductory text about the costume, then a list of the items you’ll need. The numbered items refer back to that row of product images, from left to right. The links go offsite to stores where you can acquire the item in question:

There may be a diagram to explain any special crafting:

If we’ve included a digital illustration of the costume, as with the Morrigan example above, you can click on it to embiggen. It’ll open in a new window and you can expand it to the largest size we’ve uploaded.
