|Simple, yet kick ass and recognisable. And Faith is a kick ass character (even if she is annoying at the same time to control like Lara Croft! lol)|
UPDATE: THIS COSPLAY IS FOR SALE!
Tattoo (Posted 2nd September 2010)
Okay, so i tried doing the stencil for her tattoo the other day and it failed epically. The paper just ripped apart, so I've decided to do her tattoo from the animated cut scenes where it's simplified.
It's easier to do and less hassle for my mom to do on me as I'm not left handed. lol. But it will still give the same effect
Just Realised last night (Posted 22nd August 2010)
That I still dont have a red glove or the black thing she wears on her right arm.... WOOPS!! Ah well.. they're relative minor things I can look for, but I'm not sure what type of glove to buy, as hers are all red and they;re bloody hard to get (and no way can I make gloves!)
So I'm pondering between two options: 1) Buy a pair of satin wrist length gloves and cut the fingers off one so it's dead accurate OR 2) Buy a pair of red leather fingerless gloves that have little holes cut into the knuckles: but I'm vegetarian and wont wear real leather so preferably dont wanna do this, but i feel the red/black cycling gloves aren't correct enough- but the material is accurate for photoshoots so I dont slip off anything!
I'd really appreciate some opinions on this!! PM me with ideas please?? I have 3 weeks until Alcon and Im doing this on the Thursday of it which means travelling up in it.. so I need something quick and cheap! (Im not forking out £10 for a pair of gloves when she only wears one!)
I'll attach a ref pic on here of her glove if it helps!
COMPLETE! (Posted 21st July 2010)
I managed to get more white thread today, and I managed to finish the stitching on the top and stitch the poppers on the black elastic for the elastic that goes round the bottom of her trousers.
So I can pretty much say this cosplay is complete!
I just need to wash the trousers still and pull out the string in the waist band.. but if I can't it's no big deal because the vest top will cover it anyway.
Now to concentrate on Ariel and Serah
Trainers done, trousers bought 13th July 2010 (Posted 13th July 2010)
I managed to get a pair of white combat pants today from H&M of all places in the sale for £7 from £20. So I rather happy. Okay, they;re not the EXACT design (pocket wise) as hers, but considering I only plan to do this cosplay once for Alcon this year, I'm not too fussed to be honest ^.^ They're still pretty damn close to hers!
I did actually finish the trainers a little while ago, but haven't got round to taking photos and putting them up on here. But the eyelets have been covered with black fabric marker luckily.
I have enough black elastic left from my songstress Yuna cosplay that will go round both my ankles for this cosplay! I seem to good at recycling scraps of materials/old wigs.cosplays for new ones! haha!
Now all I need to do is get some white trimming to put on either side of the boy beater top (vest top) and it's complete!
vest top bought (Posted 11th June 2010)
Okay so I managed to get the black vest top today. I just need to get some wide-ish white trimming now to do the lines down each side of the top
