Cosplayer Anti Ai-chan > Costume of Ymir from Queen's Blade: Rurou no Senshi
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The dress is just basic cotton that laces in the back and hooks at the top of the neck. I also made the white bow the the top of the dress which slips on over the hooks. The bra part does have swimsuit padding in it to maintain the shape and keep it from being too sheer. The stripped pattern for the sleeves was made by me and semi attach to the dress' straps. The underskirt has two layers and both were gathered and hand-ruffled. I used my old hoop skirt from Rachel and simply cut it because I was too lazy to make one. lol The glove is made of vinyl while the arm warmers were from extra lycra I had lying around. The gauntlet is actually two pieces: the glove and the rest of it. lol The glove is two-way stretch PVC and I added interfacing and craft foam for the finger pieces with Model Magic for the spikes. The rest of it is made from pillow foam and craft foam covered in the same PVC. The boots are mostly craft foam and PVC that attach with industrial velcro. The tops of the boots are separate pieces made from the same white vinyl as the glove and head piece. The necklace is craft foam with PVC and the earrings are Model Magic. The belts are made of thin vinyl while the gold hoop is a painted shower curtain ring. The pouches on the belts are soft leather (that shed everywhere!) and actually snap open to hold something tiny. Since Ymir shows her underwear, I bought white bikini bottoms ans added the ribbon to them. The axe is made from wood and comes apart in four pieces to make transportation a bit easier.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Holy balls, this outfit! I was convinced to do this outfit by a friend and after seeing her in the show I fell in love. Ymir is so ridiculous and herp derp that I can't help but love her, plus she's effing adorable and carried a jumbo axe. This has probably been my most daunting task to date and I'm so proud of how it came out. This is definitely my best work construction-wise since everything either lined or serged. I also had no idea what I was doing in terms of just about everything with this costume, so imagine my surprise when it didn't turn out completely awful! lol
