About this Costume
Construction Details:
Completed May 2011 This was a pretty basic costume, fun to make as well as wear! I based this off of the chapters which Lucy is running away from Blackmore, I think that was the epitome of her cuteness throughout the manga. Everything on the costume was custom patterned. The pink dress is made out of stretch knit fabric that was originally going to be used for Lina Inverse but I have since found a more suitable color fabric to use for her, so I decided to use it for Lucy instead. The black underskirt is made of four-way stretch spandex. The stockings were custom made out of standard 2-way stretch spandex that was sewn together as stripes then sewn up along the side seam. The bootcovers were made out of stretch knit, as were the gloves, and both are decorated with some nifty tinsel pompoms! The wig was purchased and styled, a lot of excess was trimmed off and layered to look like Lucy's particular hairstyle, I'm pretty happy with how the trimming came out.
Personal Thoughts:
Lucy Steel is a pretty amazing character who goes above and beyond, placing herself in dangerous situations to save her husband's life and aid Gyro and Johnny in their quest. I'd say more but that would involve major spoilers - needless to say she grew to be one tough cookie! I admire her and really enjoy being able to cosplay her! Plus the outfit is incredibly cute and fun to wear (and soooo comfy)! Also, it was a challenge cosplaying a character that wears something so cutesy, but is portrayed in the manga as being mostly sad, serious, and bawwing her eyes out whenever possible, haha. It also doesn't help that Lucy is literally half my age (she's 14 and I turn 28 this year, egads!) so that was...interesting.

Styling Notes
Wig started off a good deal longer than it is now, I trimmed it up and layered it and trimmed up the bangs as they were originally quite long.
