Cosplayer Celeste Orchid > Costume of Talho Yuuki from Eureka seveN
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I used kona cotton for the entire costume. I didn't find the right colors.. but I thought I had the right ones at the time.. apparently.. I'm an idiot so I'm off just a bit. The boot covers were the hardest thing after all. It was my first successful boot cover creation. But I like how they came out. Shirt: I had to make a tube top with three different colors: white, gray; and light blue. I couldn't find the right purplish color. Use wire to keep the shirt tied to the gray straps and add snaps for the gray part. ((VERY IMPORTANT)) reinforce the wire by wrapping it two-three times to give it extra strength otherwise it would rip the gray like crazy. Have excess wire coming from the little triangles to wrap on the leather cord holding the top up. Use eyelets in the back to tie the back closed. Skirt: Cut two pieces of white fabric for the skirt, cut two small strips of blue and two large blue pieces for the skirt. Sew a long strip done the center front, sew the four big pieces in alternating order. Sew the small blue one in the back. Add embroidery lines around all blue parts. For the belt, cut two long light blue strips. Cut out a small part in the back and then embroider the sides. Get a belt buckle and sew it in the front. Make two long bags and one letter size bag out of leather and then sew it onto the belt. Make sure to use snaps to keep the bags closed. For the gun holster, I used a long piece of light blue. I embroidered the entire sides with black string, and then I glued gray fabric and leather fabric on. I sewed two triangles to make the actual gun holster and I embroidered the weird circle design onto that. Then glued it onto the leather piece. The boots were created by stepping on a piece of white fabric and then Pinning it as close as I could to my leg. I pinned all around it then cut around the pins. I used invisible zippers and then sewed on light blue to tie at the top and then used blue tape for the bottom parts of the boot. Underneath it I wore black knee highs. When wearing the costume, I put a small red crosshair on my cheek and I had a friend draw a beta symbol on my right arm. Sad part is that I didn't have the right shoes and boot covers at Ohayocon. :(
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love this costume... it was a lot of fun to make and I just love Talho.
