About this Costume
Construction Details:
I saw Tamber's costume on the cover art for the game Children of Mana and was taken aback at how beautiful and interesting it was. After playing the game, Tamber is a very strong and determined character, which I really like. This costume was so much fun to make! I had to gradient dye the skirt fabric, which came out beautifully. I also love my headpiece - it's my favorite part ^.^

I made the bag from scratch using a CD case template, and made the belt from the same material for the bag. There's a real belt buckle for the belt, but I did make the "decorative" buckle out of hot glue and cardboard. A lot went on with this costume that I had to make - the arm covers, the sleeve caps, the leg ties, the collar, the shoe covers, the headband, the wig (which I added more wefts to and cut long layers into and styled), all the hand-painting on the skirt/top/head scarf, etc. It was really interesting to figure out all the little quirks of the costume and how to go about making them, but, like I said, I really enjoyed making this costume.

Also, I didn't want to make the bow and arrow that Tamber is always pictured with, since the main weapon I used in the game with her was the flail. And here it is! It's mainly seen with Poppen, but I loved the design and decided to make it.

It's made out of materials I had around my house: plastic water bottles, a wooden dowel, a floral foam ring, clear plastic tubing, a plastic ring, a teardrop decoration from a shower curtain hook, jute twine, a styrofoam ball, batting, fabric, Paperclay, a small wooden ball, Gesso, and paint. I had to buy the beads for the rope, a 4" eye hook for the ball, clear Silicone caulk, and 5/8" wooden flower pots for the crystal sets.

It's my lovely little Pineapple of Doom ^.^
