About this Costume
Construction Details:
The wig was made by Kira, following the tutorial in Cosmode and the top of the dress was made for me by Tokiyoh, since I really can't do proper measurement on myself.

The clothing part is pretty easy, the bling is harder. I casted some of the gems out of resin and the gold part is craft foam covered by gold vinyl and glued down.

The belt took the most time as I looked through the reference to count how many pieces exactly was in Nia's belt, calculated according to my measurements as to the width of each piece, made each one before sewing them all together. The gems also look a while because in addition to making border, I filled the back so that there are no chance of the gems falling out. They are then all glued together with industrial glue.

Personal Thoughts:
I got so high on glue fumes while making this cosplay it is not even FUNNY. I'm quite proud of this cosplay as this is my first time casting from resin and I'm pleased with how it came out.
