It looks lovely so far! I really like the stripes on the front, and the fabric for the cape. :)

Have you been using a stabalising fabric behind the embroidery? I also suggest making smaller stitches to cover larger areas, that will stop the issues with the thread looking wrong when you remove it from the hoop. Using such a thin material can be troublesome when embroidering (I try and stay away from satins unless it's duchesse as they can be a bugger to sew and don't look great...), you need the stability of a straight grained material behind it. You can then cut away the excess stabliser material around it and you will be left with a nice solid piece of embroidery.

The effect of the gold on the green looks fantastic though, I admire your patience ^^

In response to the comment on Reborn, that's not me but my brother, and I bent wire intu curls and sprayed it black. The wire then hooks around the back of his head and ears so they blend in his black hair.

As for Rydia, I saw it at the Travelodge when the fire alarm went off and it looked great, even though most people were half done lolol.

Haha, well, I did start a third version, but it got put on the back burner for other costumes for a while. But I hope to resume it later this year maybe! So watch this space! ^__^

I'm liking it a lot :)

Would you be alright if I made a version of Rydia to go with your (3rd) one?

Yeah sure. I mean, I don't know when I'm going to get it finished for, and it certainly won't be for this year, but by all means! ^^
Final Fantasy IV can always do with a it more love. :]
