About this Costume
Construction Details:
This was my very first costume, completely sewn by me. I was only 13~14 when I made this, and I taught myself how to do it all. I even made my best friend a Freya costume so we could cosplay together for our first time. This costume is what got me into everything that I'm doing today. Not only cosplaying, but it helped me figure out what I wanted to do as a career(working in costumes for films and what not) This costume may not be the greatest, but it has a very special place in my heart. :D /end cheesy-ness. I hope to one day remake this just to show how far I have come and to compare the two. It would be pretty funny. Plus I still love the design and the series(Haters gonna hate..) ...ok, now for some actual construction details! xD The top is a 'corset' style as in it just laces up the back. The arm warmers slide up the arm and the ruffles inside was just a panel sewn in a triangle shape. The skirt has three box pleats in the front and three in the back, and ties at the waist with a ribbon. It also has an underskirt so I wouldn't flash anyone. I also made a...er..petticoat..yeah, it was bad..to help give the skirt some shape. As for the wig..we were too afraid to even touch it, much less cut the bangs in. O_O The ears were made by my best friend and Freya out of craft foam. :D Holy crap I can't believe I remember all that. @_@
