Cosplayer Alisha > Costume of Tear Grants from Tales of the Abyss
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Practically everything was made or sewn by me besides the white heels and the wig. The gloves (white and brown halves), tights, dress, and leotard underneath were all sewn by me! The daggers and staff were also made by me! I entered in the 2011 Sakura-con Costume Contest, but did not win =__=
I altered a dress pattern. I used Cotton for this dress. I had to do some taking away and adding to the pattern, such as adding the triangular point in the back of the dress and in the front. The side "petals" I actually used the sleeve pattern that it came with and cut it into shape. Although now I find that doing it that way doesn't give you the correct length. I cut long strips of Yellow and made my own trim with them. I bought white heels and made a tall sock like pattern to mimic her boots.
The daggers are made from air dry pottery clay. The staff it spear head and bottom design is made from "Paper Clay" and the handle is an old metal broom stick :)
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love Tear. She has a similar personality to mine I think lol.
