|This was a dream costume which I went back and forth over for YEARS. Seriously. I decided to finally bite the bullet and made her for ayacon 2011. Eiko is my favourite ff heroine, even though I know some people find her annoying, I think she's quite lonely and missunderstood andadorable...so I was determined to do her justice and put my all in! |
The wig I wanted to dye a more purple shade..I attempted this and it didn't make much of a difference...so I may try again in the future but for now i'm happy with blue - it changes dramatically from reference to reference!
Horn and wings were made with model magic, sanded then painted. I had to sew a new weft in the wig to get the horn to sit correctly, bit of bother but totally worth it! xD
The jumper was quick and easy. Poofy sleeves were achieved literally by making tubes out of stuffing and literally wearing them on my arms! Very hot but I love the result! The dungarees were the hell for this costume. Lined with the same yellow fabric. I crafted the pattern from scratch cause nothing existed that was even remotely similar. Because of this (i'm guessing :P) they're almost impossible to sit down in! Yet alone bend over! But I like the overall look so...8'D OH THE LIFE OF A COSPLAYER.
I'd love to wear this some more! I even confronted my skin tight suit fear with this cosplay. x_x
Complete (Posted 14th August 2011)
Test run for Eiko (Bar the wig, horn and wings because I was just plain lazy. :P)
Apologies for my weird face. I was trying to get into frame lmao. xD
Anyway yes it’s done. It’s massively awkward to wear and I pretty much can’t bend or sit down without alot of adjusting so that’s…fun… :P And i’m not 100% happy but IT’S DONE IT’S DONE I’VE FINISHED EVERYTHING FOR AYACON WITH FOUR DAYS TO SPARE. \o/
Wig test. (Posted 9th August 2011)
Well the dying did...basically nothing. It's a teeny bit darker and look a little purple in some lights but otherwise it was pretty pointless. -_-;; It'll have to stay blue for now i'm afraid. 8'D At least I vaguely know how to dye a wig now.
Horn + Wig progress (Posted 6th August 2011)
Horn is complete.
For the wig I had to make a weft and add it to the front of the hole where the horn comes out because it looked very odd before. O.o My first time making wefts and it actually went pretty well!
Just gotta cut the fringe and dye it now. O.O
Top complete. (Posted 4th August 2011)
Yay the top is done. It wasn't really very difficult although I had hell with one of the sleeves...but the other was completely fine and I have no idea why. O.o Anyways it's done now, puffy sleeves galore. xD Just need to add the gloves when I get them. Also thats the pink undersuit thing i'll be wearing. o.o
Bow (Posted 31st July 2011)
Dis hair bow is so ridiculous. It was one of those moments where I found a ref for it and was like WHY. I WISH I NEVER FOUND THE REF. It ties together BEHIND her ears. It’s not secure at all. I’ll have to pin it to the wig cap as well. Would have been easier if it was an invisible floating bow. I COULD HAVE DONE THAT. X.X
Anyway Eiko’s bow is done. Man I cannot carry that off. :p
Shoes (Posted 31st July 2011)
Not perfect by far but it's the first time i've really made covers like these and i'm happy enough. They're also ridiculously comfortable so that makes a nice change!
Also socks! :D
