Cosplayer Envel > Costume of Leena from Chrono Cross
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I love Leena! Her dress vest thingamabob is so cute, and even if she's not the best character in the game, I used her UNTIL THE END. TASTE MY PRISMATIC COOKING UTENSILS.
Ahem. Anyway, the costume was pretty simple. The wig is a Tina (I believe) from New Look, it was bought second hand from a friend and all I did was straighten it and thicken the bangs, then add the purple laces. The headband is simple pleather I had lying around, the trim is a hand-made crepe back satin bias tape, and the jewel was cast from resin.
The vest was made from Simplicity's what I call the "Jesus pattern", because it makes all of the stereotypical bible costumes. All I did was alter the sleeves and add the eyelets for the lacing.
The belt is made from pleather, and the apron is attached, made from twill and crepe back satin applique. It laces up the back.
The dress was made from a strapless prom dress pattern that I shortened at the bottom and painted the designs onto. The little arm bands are just suede bands I put some beaded trim on.
The socks were bought, then hand-dyed to that tacky shade of purple, and the frying pans magically appeared in my friend's basement, and they were just perfect for the pictures since they were worn and old looking! :D
Shoes were simply bought. I know they're not super accurate, but they're soooooo cute!
