Well I just realized I have done a horrible job keeping up my cosplay blog and have many completed costumes to share so today I am making it a goal to start getting this page updated. I left off with progress of Rydia (Final Fantasy iv) which I wore last year to A-kon 26.
As I probably stated in my previous post, the fabric for the corset, arm pieces, and belt pieces were all constructed from an old prom dress that I found at the $2 goodwill. As always, working on a budget while still making things look good is my goal, along with putting my own personal touch on each character. Corset is made with steel boning, and lined with heavy twill. Each star is hand made by cutting out fabric stars and gluing thousands of tiny tiny gold balls/beads) and then lining with gold trim. All the beads on this costume are hand painted gold.
