Cosplayer Cosplay Kitten > Costume of Pirotess from Record of Lodoss Wars
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- While the costume itself is fairly simple looking, it actually took about three days of tailoring the dress to get it to fit just right...without having anything, uh, fall out. =P The gold trim was also a bit time consuming to do, as were the boot covers since the leather I used was very difficult to work with. But I'm very happy with how it all turned out! CJ/Sozokureed, my boyfriend and the Ashram in my photos, made Pirotess's sword for me, and the finishing touch was a spray tan at a salon.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I've been wanting to cosplay Pirotess from Record of Lodoss War ever since I first saw the OVA back in 2005, when I rented it from the local Hollywood Video. She's a strong, sexy character who is fiercely devoted to Ashram, the Black Knight, and I was just so drawn to her...perhaps it was the appeal of her tragic love for him. Sadly though every time I would organize a Lodoss cosplay group it would fall apart due to tight schedules and budgets, and I didn't want to be a lone dark elf, so the wig and fabric I purchased sat in a bin, collecting dust and waiting to be made into a costume. But fast forward five years into the future! :D After learning that my boyfriend, also a cosplayer, had an amazing Ashram costume, I dusted off my Pirotess supplies and set to work.
