Cosplayer Rie > Costume of Jenna from Golden Sun: The Lost Age
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- - The whole thing was actually pretty easy. I just used the old Halloween costume as a base, and worked from there. The most effort went into the vest. I learned that I have issues with doing mitered corners with bias tape, so I had to cheat that a bit and it doesn't look as good as it might. I sewed in some hook-and-eyes for closure, and custom-dyed the rope. It was my first time doing eyelets, and I used the hammer method with and extra-large eyelets... Of course I ended up hitting myself a few times, but it was totally worth it! I'm really proud of the end result.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I JUST LOVE THIS SERIES YOU GUYS. I first made this costume in 8th grade as my "final Halloween costume"--I wanted to go out with a bang. It was much simpler and was definitely more of a Halloween costume than a cosplay. I remade it this year because I couldn't get over the nostalgia. Next year my boyfriend will be joining me as Isaac, and I can't wait!!
- Styling Notes
- - The ponytail on the base wig was not very well-done--it was messy and the netting was showing in some places--so I had to take it to my cosmetologist friend to fix it and move the ponytail higher on the head. Even then, it hurt really bad to wear it...so I couldn’t ;-; If I can get some spare time I might wrestle with it again.
- Wig Review
- I'm only wearing the ponytail clip in the pictures—I got lucky because the Spanish Brown color that Arda has is apparently almost the exact same color as my actual hair! I had issues with the base wig, so that’s why the low rating. It’s really nice quality though and I wish I could wear the whole thing without causing myself massive pain!!
