Rydia (Final Fantasy 4)

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.

Forest Fairy costume Wip

This coming weekend is Texas Renaissance Festival 1001 dreams so I have been working on a fairy costume, something I have been wanting to do for a while.  I didn’t have much money to spend on this costume so the entire thing is made of scrap fabric, green tulle and old clothing  that I cut up. The shoes are also some old shoes that I just painted and added flowers and tulle.  I think the only thing I spent money on was the wig, which is from Arda wigs. Also this is my first time making fairy wings and although I was a bit frustrated and had to rip them up several times, I am feeling a little more confident about the way they turned out.

Everything is original design for this costume.
