Cosplayer Saiyora-Saga > Costume of Yuna from Final Fantasy X
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Where to start?
Timeframe... over a few months. The original skirt (which I sold because I recently made a new one) was a ponte knit. I painted with Lumiere textile paints and had pleated with the traditional female hakama style as shown in the CG videos. The obi is actually a thin brocade with a slight shimmer. I purchased the fabric from denverfabrics, and wrapped it around the heaviest interfacing I could find. The obi is also painted with textile paints, and the cording is sewn into the obi along with the ornamental flower which is leather, tooled, stamped and painted. It snaps on by snap fastners which are hidden under the bow that is separate from the obi. The long tubular beads are PVC pipes found at a hardware store and the other beads were provided by shipwreckedbeads. The top is made of a silk blend and patterned out so it would cross my chest appropriately without bunching near the neck. The sleeves are a sort of stretch blend fabric with a slight shimmer that I found in the clearance pile at Joannes. I dip dyed to get the gradient using dylon. All of the jewelry is 925 silver, the necklace I made as a replica from findings on Etsy.
The wig is cut and styled by me.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I had made Summoner Yuna when I first started cosplaying sometime back in 2005. Thinking back I have certainly come a long way since hand stitching everything and using cheap fabric paints to get details. It makes me proud of what I have accomplished with this costume, and it makes me feel like I can continue to make amazing pieces.
