Costume Information

I'd been toying with this idea since about 2006. Freya is my favourite character along with Amarant in the game and I've been looking for a costume that can challenge me in every aspect of its construction.

This costume will have some nice prosthetic work in the face, hands and feet. It has structural work in the coat and hat. I dont want that coat hanging on me like a limp fish, I want it to flare out like it does in the game.

Theres actually chain mail UNDER that heavy leather coat. Saying that, I wouldnt call the coat leather either. to me it's more of a heavy waxed material much like the really old turpin coats you got.

Either way, this will be one of the costumes that I will take as long as I need to on. I'm not rushing this, it's been a dream cosplay for a while now and I feel if I take my time, trial and error it and develop my techniques so I can make it work and make it last then it will be good.

This is going to be my next big project. I know it's a final fantasy character and theres LOADS of that about, but tell me, how many Freyas have you seen to the many Garnets and Zidanes? it's time to give the lesser cosplayed characters some love!.

Thanks Moonlilly. Yush I think she would be something for next year I think. More likley to be one of the mid to late year conventions. Who knows, maybe I can convince Junta to do Amarant for then.

Yay! Have you any idea when you're going to be making this for? Or is it going to be a 'when it's done' costume like my raziel XD I've been looking into making a Sir Fratley costume for years but I've never got my head round how do it XD

Manjou: it's a "when it's done" I'm afraid. I will be aiming for 2011 though. Fratley would be amazing!

Saw this the other day

and thought you might want to see, it's a pretty neat solution for freya's digigrade feet without building some stilts or having a weighted toe which can both be pretty hard to walk on

I don't think I could do it this way for Fratley though, I can't walk in heels XD
