Costume Information

Because I love this game so! Hooray for Tales of!
Taken a while to actually upload any photos of this costume, I forgot I hadnt classed it as complete yet!

This costume wasn't that hard to make, thankfully there's no armour construction involved mainly pattern modifying and sewing. :D

So yes, Rita Mordio genius mage is by far the best character in the game! ;D I love her personality, how she interacts with the rest of the group and her costume was just far too cute not to attempt making! It turned out a lot better then expected! I've added goggles and other bits that I havent yet taken photos of, but probably will in the distant future whenever I decide to wear it again. :)

Whoa, I don't know the source material but this costume looks fantastic. The jacket is beautifully made. Googling the character for context I like how you went with more intense, higher-contrast colours than the original design; your version is crazy energetic looking. What did you make the choker/pendant out of?

...and that arm ribbon was just asking to get trapped in a door, surely? :P

I made the choker out of a bit of gold ribbon I had left from my Yuuko cosplay (because I still have about 10 meters left! Effing CLAMP and their gold trimmings! XD) and the main part is just orange(?) Fimo painted gold, red gem stuck on top! Simples! :D

I've dodged such incidents so far but I'll wear it again once it's 100% complete so it's only a matter of time! Thanks for the warning. XD
