Cosplayer Kichara > Costume of Saber from Fate/Stay Night
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
This costume was REALLY TOUGH TO MAKE. I had so much stress prior to even starting it about making the dress, and I was right to worry because it was really hard to figure out. I drafted all the patterns myself, using a costume dress patter for reference for the top.
I couldn't actually find any suitable gold fabric for the trim, so I hand painted a LOT of bias tape, and then stitched it twice to have perfect stitching on the top layer. This was my first time making mitered corners, and it took me about 4 and a half hours just to put the bias tape trim on the skirt to get them figured out right. o___o
To get that "anime lace" look I actually appliqued white cotton together for that clean look on the bottom of the white skirt and sleeves. The gold "dots" on the skirt were put on with a stamp I made out of foam to give it a cool textured look, with the same paint I used for my gold trim.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I have such a lady boner for Saber. *___*
- Styling Notes
- I LOVE this wig. Arda is such an awesome company, and they offered extensions, as well as a premade braided bun in the same color! The "ahoge" has a wire base, and is atually detachable to make travel and storage much easier. For the "ear tails", I used layered extensions, and sewed them on for a nice thick look that would fall flush with my face. I was inspired by my Saber nendoroid figure, which had an extra layer above the ear tails and gave it a really cool "anime" look.
