Cosplayer Leah > Costume of Zafina from Tekken 6
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Dress modified from a qipao pattern.
The patterns on the stockings were painted on using flesh-coloured acrylic paint, and with the assistance of a very patient friend!
- Personal Thoughts:
- Possibly the only costume I've ever made that hasn't required a hundred fixes after wearing! I wanted to make the dress as soon as I saw it in the game, but didn't start work on it until one of my friends asked if I'd like to be part of a Tekken 6 group at London Expo. I'm really pleased with how it came out, especially considering how quickly I made it!
- Styling Notes
- I originally bought two wigs, planning to use one for wefts, but this one was so thick and lovely to work with that I ended up just using it! I styled the bun by separating out a small ponytail from the underside of the wig, and then rolling the rest into a large bun using a hairdini, which I then closed around the ponytail. It ended up being a bit longer than is accurate, but no-one seemed bothered about that XD
