Costume Information

Description
Because I love the bad guys <3 Have you noticed yet? ^^

Serious obcession. Alexei is pretty awesome, and he has an entertaining evil laughter >:D

That and he has quite possibly the most EPIC battle music ever. I love it so! I need to masquerade to this just so I can flail at it's awesomeness XD

This is planned because I really want to do this one day. My obcession with this game continues to grow and after JAF + JCC I feel better about my costume making skills X3

I like the way you can get a 360 degree view of all enemies in the monster book :D SUPER helpful when trying to make sketches!!!! ^_^ What a handy feature in a game XD

I've put a youtube vid of the music because it's too win. Hope that's cool XD

Currently planned for October Expo but this is up for debate incase me and Bambi are Japan-ing XD

Indeed it does, the sword and stuff will have to have bits which appear to be floating O.o

Awesome! I kind of want to do Duke at some point, I have to say. Such pretty boys.

(but if I do another Vesperia cosplay, the next one'll be Yuri's True Knight outfit, because it is gorgeous. :))

Just found an Alexei ref~!(despite how it looks, it is from an official book^^;)

After looking at it a little closer, it's kinda different then the screenshots you have...so it might be more confusing than helpful, but I thought I'd show you anyway, just in case it's useful^^

YESSSSS!!! I've been waiting for someone to do this!!! We should definately try to do a vesperiary knight theme...I've been wanting to do either sodia or one of the twins from first strike (preferably a twin....not miss stabby)

And a Duke...oh my, too many awesome costumes planned....

Journal

Researching ^_^ (Posted 29th January 2011)

Starting to put together a research list on e-to-the-bay for this costume. Mainly finding the right fabrics and stuff *wishes she had a better fabric shop nearer her house DX *
At the moment I'm looking at a terracotta cotton drill for the majority of it, lots of interfacing and some paler drill or nice faux suade or something for the edges. The armour will probably be craft foam but will need ALOT of practice. Maybe this can be for October Expo if I'm not in Japan :D
Yayyy noone will know who I am XD
