About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume has been a dream cosplay of mine, ever since I first played the game, when I was in middle school. I took a great deal of care in considering my material choices, so that they would be reflective of the Legend of Dragoon aesthetic, but also reflect the fact that Meru is a dancer. I used a combination of vinyl, faux leather, and casa satin. All of the details are satin stitched on to create a more polished appearance. This cosplay was my first adventure in learning to satin stitch and I learned quite a bit, while doing it. The large bow also contains a wire support and a system of snaps, to help it retain its shape and stick up.
I ended up not being very pleased with the red contacts I received in the mail, and thought they were too harsh/fake for a whimsical character like Meru. I found a nicer pair that I plan on ordering. My hammer is also currently in the works, so hopefully next time I wear this cosplay I'll be 100% wingly-fied ^_~
