Cosplayer Akarui > Costume of Mercedes from Odin Sphere
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- SOOOOOOOOOOOO much work went into this costume, seriously. The wings and the crown of flowers both took a lot of work and pain. The crown is made up of 3 different kinds flowers torn apart and put together, as well as painted about 6 times each, and the wings have 2 layers of matboard that had to be exacto-knifed, as well as two more layers of foam to protect the matboard. Plenty of blisters ensued. the wing material is 2 different chiffon colors and the sleeves and shorts are made of taffeta. The ornament on the leotard is actually a christmas ornament XD and the wig USED to be an innocent wig from Amphigory and the choker is made from light green ribbon.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I...LOVE..THIS...COSTUME! I love the game,the music, the art EVERYTHING. I REALLLLLLLLLLLY need to finish that BOW! Ingway is Kodoz ^_^ and the AMAZING Gwendolyn is Ayako Mono. Finished in time for Anime Expo 2008, then worn for AWA 2008 costume contest.
