About this Costume
Construction Details:
Version 1 (worn at AI 2012) - The whole thing was actually pretty easy. I just used my old Halloween costume as a base, and worked from there. The most effort went into the vest. Mitered corners are hard... 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!!
