Cosplayer Aleera > Costume of Rydia from Final Fantasy IV
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume involved a lot of kelly green spandex. It was fun making the lesser known Nomura design (though I still prefer the Amano designs for Rydia). I remade the gold boots out of a gold spandex and strung beads onto the foam satin belt. Time consuming but not overly challenging since I had done a lot of kimono sleeves by this point. Gold fabric paint on kimono sleeves match the reference image. This costume was fun but nothing new in terms of costume construction for me.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Only thing I might change is the wig in lighter color and make the gold detailing more prominent. But I prefer to move on to other Amano projects that more challenge my skills to evolve.
