About this Costume
Construction Details:
This costume was a lot of headaches. Most of the issues was with the armor. I decided I wanted to go the craft foam route because it would be lighter then wonderflex. This was all good until I couldn't get the craft foam to stick to the vinyl I used. I tried five different glues until I got my hands on liquid nail, and THAT finally held. There really wasn't much sewing involved with this outfit. All the jewels are resin that I spray painted because the color wasn't coming out right with the dye. All the details are vinyl that I used fabric glue to attach so that there wasn't any needles marks in the vinyl. I hand made the gloves and the smaller jewels are actually christmas ornaments that I painted the same color as the resin. I actually made the shirt 3 seperate pieces to make it easier to wear. So the white long sleeved shirt is seperate from the yellow shirt which is seperate from the white and red piece.
Personal Thoughts:
Ferio is my favorite Rayearth character and I have always wanted to cosplay him. When I saw the Prince robes in Rayearth 2 I KNEW I had to do them first.

I reworked the armor and the belt flap for Otakon since I wanted to get pictures with my friends in their MKR outfits. I am slightly happier with it now but I still really dislike it -_-
