Cosplayer Peachy Keen Cassie > Costume of Colette Brunel from Tales of Symphonia
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The costume itself was purchased from eBay seller coscoseyeslee and the tights were purchased from Forever 21. The wig was purchased from eBay seller divine-bijou and then styled by me (see Wig Information). The shoes were made with items I already owned (a pair of white socks over a pair of flats with the boot cuffs from the costume I purchased).
- Personal Thoughts:
- The first time I played Tales of Symphonia, Colette wasn't necessarily one of my favorite characters. It wasn't that I didn't like her, she just didn't really stand out to me. However, a couple years later, I replayed ToS and fell in love with her. Now, she is one of my all-time favorite video game heroines. She is so much stronger than she first appears and she always keeps a smile on her face, despite the situation. I hope that someday, I could be as courageous as her.
- Styling Notes
- The styling for this wig was pretty simple and did not take much time at all. First, I cut the bottom to even it out. (Originally, the wig had more layering on the bottom. However, Colette's hair is straight across and curled under.) Second, I cut and styled the bangs to match Colette's bangs.
- Wig Review
- The color was a little more yellow than I originally wanted, but overall it is a very good wig and looks beautiful in pictures.
