Costume Information

Time Taken : All in all, a week on and off

Awesome hair. Awesome weapons. Awesome outfit. And she can ride a Pegasus! It just has to be done! :D Though... I'd probably not manage to conjure the pegasus... *sniff* :P

This cosplay ended up being SO rushed! I had to order some new fabric online, because the black I already had wasn't too stretchy enough. The eBay seller was really slow at shipping it out, and apparently used Snail Mail to get it here. Resulted in me getting the black fabric the evening before I left for London. So everything is sewed that night, plus a night in the hotel room the night before the Expo. I'm surprised it got done at all! XD Luckily I had made the weapons/spikes a few months before, so I didn't have to worry about them XD

Doesnt it suck that we Rider cosplayers cant have the Pegasus? xD

Oooh awesome, I plan to do Archer and/or Assassain at some point to so the three of us could be the foundation of a Fate/Stay group =D XD.

by MysteriousFayth on Saturday, 11 October, 2008 - 11:34

I'll be wearing it this expo actually XD
But I haven't made the armour yet, so I can just pop out a more complete version at a later date, I'll try to co-ordinate it with your Rider and *reads above* possibly Fayth's archer/assassin :D

Hehe, yeah, I know that.. But I don't think I'll manage to make a Rider cosplay in just a few hours XD So yeah, let me know when you want to wear the armoured version, and I'll make Rider for then :D
