About this Costume
Construction Details:
Version 2 (worn at AI 2015)
- Vest: All new. Made out of a random knit fabric I had lying around. Single-layer, unlined, trimmed with bias tape. The eyelets are the XL size, and I put some iron-on interfacing underneath where they are just to keep the fabric in place a little better.

- Props: Both the sword and the Mars Djinni plushie are new. I'm also not sure where either of them are from because they were both gifts from my husband.

- Skirt: Same as in version one, with some edits. The main brown part is broadcloth, and the lighter brown part is twill. Closes with snaps, and it's actually just a partial closure this time instead of a row of snaps that go all the way down the back.

- Cape: Same as in version one, with some edits. Two colors of purple broadcloth. I did some handsewing to get it to lay the way I wanted.

- Boot toppers - Same as in version one, with some edits. The same tan twill used for the bottom of the skirt. They also have sew-on snaps on the inside so that they can go around a hole in the boots--I didn't put the hole there, but figured it would work great for this purpose!!

- Boots: Same as in version one. Purchased from Amazon--they're Sebago Women's Groundswell Boots in brown.

- Buttons: Same as in version one. Made out of model magic clay and spray-painted gold. They attach to the cape via safety pins on the backs.

- Shirt: Same as in version one. Was originally a white turtleneck shirt that was a size too large. I dyed it pink, chopped off the collar and sewed on a new one with some random white stretch fabric I had, and sewed up the sides to fit me better.

Version 1 (worn at AI 2012) - The whole thing was actually pretty easy. I just used my old Halloween costume as a base, and worked from there. The most effort went into the vest. Mitered corners are hard... I sewed in some hook-and-eyes for closure, and custom-dyed the rope. It was my first time doing eyelets, and I used the hammer method with and extra-large eyelets... Of course I ended up hitting myself a few times, but it was totally worth it! I'm really proud of the end result.
Personal Thoughts:
I JUST LOVE THIS SERIES YOU GUYS. I first made this costume in 8th grade as my "final Halloween costume"--I wanted to go out with a bang. It was much simpler and was definitely more of a Halloween costume than a cosplay. I remade it this year because I couldn't get over the nostalgia. My husband is joining me as Isaac this year!!!

Styling Notes
Literally just wore it out of the bag. Probably should have cut it because it's so long that it hits the backs of my knees, haha. Oh well!
Wig Review
I'm only wearing the ponytail clip in the pictures—I got lucky because the Spanish Brown color that Arda has is apparently almost the exact same color as my actual hair! I had issues with the base wig, so that’s why the low rating. It’s really nice quality though and I wish I could wear the whole thing without causing myself massive pain!!
