Cosplayer Flaming-Goddess > Costume of Lucy Heartphilia from Fairy Tail
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I am so glad I managed to get this done! Lucy is probably my favorite character from Fairy Tail. She's so adorable and hilarious! The cosplay itself was pretty easy to make once we got the pattern all figured out. I used stretchy material for the shirt so I wouldn't have to put in darts, and dyed the same fabric for the blue stripes. (I still have to redye this fabric, as it didn't come out quite right.) The skirt was a basic pleated skirt that was also dyed for the right color. The keys were made as a present from a wonderful friend, and the boots were a thrift store find!
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love cosplaying Lucy, just because I find myself identifying with her a lot. We have very similar personalities, and frankly I think she's just adorable. So I'll definitely be bringing her to many upcoming conventions! :D
- Styling Notes
- First I had to straighten the curls out of the wig (Heat-resistance RULES). Then, being my perfectionist self, I had to get Lucy's hairstyle just right, which proved to be a little difficult with the wefts. Eventually after enough fiddling I got it.
- Wig Review
- The wig itself was pretty thick and photographs well, but trying to keep wefts from showing, the large cap, and the rough fiber was a little less than ideal.
