About this Costume
Construction Details:
Probably the most detailed costume I've ever done, and that's saying a lot considering Alexiel's wings are over 900 hand trimmed feathers. There's so many freaking little bead work details on this that I couldn't begin to describe, when over 40 hours of beading were put into the corset, crown, and drapery.
Shoulder armor was made of polyunthane, plaster, linen, and a satin. This made the plates more bendable, but that way I could accent the fabric with beads, and I always imagined white mages to be in leather armor rather than metal. The wig was ordered from Cyperous by Ringo, but I assumed it would be a more yellow-blonde shade rather than honey hue. So I probably have the darkest Rosa hair ever worn, deal with it.
Personal Thoughts:
I got the inspiration to make an elegant, Amano-inspired version with my own elements of Rosa after I started playing the DS remake, and realized the new CG version just did not do proper justice to the beauty of her original design. I started collecting fabrics, beads, and patterns 8 months prior to the finished product, and when I voiced wanting an extended deadline to better do all the little details, Yunie kindly joined in to be my beautiful (shrub) Rydia.
