Cosplayer Pixie Kitty > Costume of Edea from Final Fantasy VIII
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Pain the butt remake of my Edea costume AGAIN, because i'm weird like that. I could have literally made at least 3 new costumes in the time span it took create this thing. A lot of stuff went wrong along the way, but I learned some pretty good lessons and new skills from it. This was my first time working with resin for a costume. My husband Neon Genocide was a big help with all of that! The backpeice actually melted/warped in the sun while sitting outside drying. This was the day before Otakon! So it was a panick to get it to a wearable condition in time for the convention! This thing is soooo uncomfortable to wear! I usually can only bear about 3 hours or so before I give in to the discomfort!
- Personal Thoughts:
- I both hate and love this thing. The backpeice must be re-made for upcoming wears, because it slants back waaay too far which makes it look smaller than it really is. At least it doesn't hit my horns when I turn my head! I also learned how to get INTO the headpeice at the convention, it was also a pain in the butttt!!!
