About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- 5 1/2 yards of $30 a yard satin faced silk chiffon went into this costume. The coin bra and belt were imported from an Indian seller and the jewelry was bought from a local jewelery importer. The circlet was made from gold plated chain, a light lavender swavorvski crystal and two cross findings. The belt was modified with gold plated chain, connectors and cross findings.
The wig is a medium brown Willow wig from Cosworx with two wefts sewn into it.
The Blood Sin rood was drawn on with a henna coloured Copic marker.
This costume was more or less a joint effort between my friend Maggie and I. She allowed me to use her serger to finish off the edges of the veil and then ended up serging it for me as well as helping me sew in the rest of the wefts due to time constraints. Mags also drew the rood on my back the morning of the con. &hearts
- Personal Thoughts:
- I am a complete whore for anything exotic, particularly of the middle east persuasion. Having played Vagrant Story years ago, I rewatched the opening AMV for the game back in January and decided to put this on my costume intinerary. With limited time as AMA approached, I decided it was the ideal time to get this cosplay together.
The fabric was ridiculously expensive for what I used it for, but when I saw it I decided I had to use it for something and after finding that the fabric I initially wanted to use for this costume was little more than a remnant, I sprang for this. It has such a lovely drape to it, thought unfortunately kept snagging on the belt.
I've finally outdone myself in the realm of jingling in costumes. Not surprisingly, I wasn't really that recognized at the con -- mostly the older crowd of con-goers knew who I was due to the tattoo -- but at least I wasn't mistaken for Slave Leia.
Hopefully, I'll have a larger group in the near future.
