Cosplayer Rie > Costume of Jenna from Golden Sun: The Lost Age
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.
Version 2 (worn at AI 2015) - New vest, made out of stretch fabric so it fits a little better, and also doesn't ride up like the other one did. Remade parts of the cape, and fixed the skirt closure. Also added snaps to the boot toppers so they wouldn't move around so much. This was also my husband's debut as Isaac!!!
- 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. My husband is joining me as Isaac this year!!!
- Styling Notes
- I originally started out wanting to wear the Jeannie wig, but that got a little complicated... 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. I'm wanting to put wig clips on it or get one of the new smaller Jeannies!
- 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!!
