Cosplayer Aelynn > Costume of Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- LOTS of pattern drafting and improvisation. Armor is craft foam.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I always seem to choose my costumes for Anime North with little time to work on them and without being very passionate about the ones I choose. Why? I have no idea.
Anyways, I settled on this one and instantly regretted it. It was SO HARD to get it to be a decent translation from 2D and look good in person. I hated it and regretted choosing this costume basically from the first hour of working on it until it was almost complete.
I hate making halter tops, which of course this has. I hate going pantsless ( though luckily it was cold so I wore fleshtone leggings with nylons over that ) and I hate ponytail wigs. So...I don't know. This costume made no sense for me to choose other than I thought it was cute.
The collar... I don't know why I laid flat for the con, 'cause it stands awesomely. My bad.
