About this Costume
Construction Details:
I've been a big fan of Rule of Rose since it was released in 2006. It's a really interesting concept for a horror game with a very deep storyline and some really creepy and haunting visuals. In early 2009 when I was considering going to Otakon, I was contacted by Avianna and she asked if I would be interested in being a part of a Rule of Rose Cosplay group with her and Leesers because they're both also huge fans of the game. Of course, I was thrilled by the invitation and readily agreed to go to the con and be in the group. :3 Pan patterned out the dress for me and cut my wig which I can't thank her enough for that. I'm a little unhappy with my fabric. I bought it as a backup because I thought it was a little too orange but I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to find better material before the con. I tried tea staining it a couple of times which only slightly helped. The flowers were a pain in the butt to make. I made 18 of them to correspond with the 9 that I could see in the front of her dress in the one official image that was released for Eleanor. They were made out of felt and each one looks unique because I fail at being artistic and consistent. XD Sewing them on was also a pain. It required using invisible thread to avoid sewing the tops and bottoms of the flowers separately with different thread.
Personal Thoughts:
This turned out to be a really fun costume and being in a RoR group with Avianna and Leesers is what made Otakon a memorable experience. We're all still a bit in shock that we were able to find each other and do these costumes since RoR is pretty under appreciated. I was recognized twice at Otakon while wearing this costume but the people that recognized me were so happy to see RoR being Cosplayed that it made it totally worth it. (^^) We did a private shoot with Elemental at Otakon which really was the highlight of the con. Being able to capture the essence of the series through Cosplay and in photos really made me happy that I was able to join the group. Leesers, Avianna and I re-wore our costumes at Ohayocon 2010 and we were joined by Miri as Wendy, Bonk as Meg and Devious-Tofu as Joshua. It was a lot of fun to be a part of a big group and everyone looked fantastic! We did another really exciting shoot with Elemental. Along with the wonderful Silent Hill shoot on Saturday night, this RoR shoot made Ohayocon really memorable. :3 Other photo credits: Daguru (http://realdaguru.deviantart.com/)
