Costume Information

Description
was mainly for Final Fantasy Distant Worlds- November 5th 2011


when i played this game i automatically wanted to wear this dress when i got married. I very much doubt that will happen (weddings are a lot off stress im getting hitched in Vegas.... if i find the right fella) so im going to wear it to distant worlds.

I'm going with my none cosplayer mate, but he knows all about my cosplay as he's my prop guy. I say i wanna make this prop he helps me achieve it. (glowing pendant, sword, bow)



its nearing the end of october and i haven't obtained my material and not even sure the idea i have in my head will work....i will have a low back dress !


youtube vid skip to about 3 mins i love this scene, it shows you what happens to Yuna when she recieves a Fayth and also how much her guardians care


worn to Distant worlds amazing going again next year prob wear this again as i loved it, one thing i got was people coming up asking me where i bought it :s

anyway now going to Doki Doki in manchester 2011

Doki Doki Cheerleader XD

sending back into remaking XD cos i want a longer train XD


hmmm cos we are going out after i think this may not be the best costume but i am still going to remake it for expo maybe the sat if i can get the day off

Top looks great for this!! For the skirt part maybe do it in panels? Might be easier to figure it all out! ^_^

by FuriePhoenix on Wednesday, 30 March, 2011 - 19:58

i thought along those lines 3 panels at the front and side then make a separate skirt, not sure it shall be on hold for a while though :P

by J-Po on Wednesday, 30 March, 2011 - 23:29

Oooh I bet this will look really good!!

Are you going to leave the top like it is, or make the front straight across like hers is? It's a tricky dress to make!!

version 2 for distant worlds (Posted 14th June 2012)

i wasn't too happy on the outcome of this dress i love the low back but i want the longer train and to have it seem more...well more lol ill be reusing the wings however the dress i will be remaking the dress from scratch but using the same fashion as the previous one

dun dun dun duhhhhhh (Posted 30th May 2012)

okay i have fully decided to redo this for distant world 25th ani. i am going to fully remake the redress longer train lower back and a hell of a lot of feathers

so i recon i will need about 15 meters of fabric .........

game /costume flaw (Posted 4th November 2011)

in the FMV's yuna wears long white boots but in the cutscenes she wear white heeled shoesssss ....... ¬.¬ just one for you all even game makers don't agree lol

also the guy who voices Wakka voices Bender too!!!!

complete!!! (Posted 4th November 2011)

finalllllly its done. It was done last night but i still wasnt happy with the front so i went away and came back and sorted the front out and now it holds itself up XD. but boob tape will still be used just for security :)

this costume is also going to doki doki if its survives london to go with Stu's Tidus so yeyyy now to pack

thank you (Posted 2nd November 2011)

thank you to megitymeg for the final piece, she has made me the cute earrings im so happy this has finally come together and cannot wait to have pics with everyone XD and to hear the fantastic music

version 2 (Posted 1st November 2011)

the bodice, as the last one was just failing ive used satin and stiffner, then added a lining (as it was still a bit see through and its worked a bit better its not the best fitting but it looks the same as the first.

now im going to sow up the sides and attach it to the back skirt and add the feathers

ekkkkkkkkkk again (Posted 25th October 2011)

okay my original dress is slowly turning to epic fail,tried to add a zip and well it looks silly,

so while trying to fix this im currently creating a new one, this time using satin, but i've purchased some stiffing glue thing and well lets see what happens this time

hilarious (Posted 23rd October 2011)

so after spending the whole day stitching the sides then unpicking it cos i have stitched it wrong, i finally tried the dress on......... i could get it on...... i couldn't get it off lol so i had to unpick it as i was still in it, lesson learn t.so i need to buy a zip

i also still need to alter the boob part im still not happy with the shape looking at cutting a bra up and using that as the inside so all in all a bad day lol

front wip (Posted 21st October 2011)

okay the one thing i really wanted was the low back...... why..... so it all starts with the front, using my fav material lycra im going ot use its own elastic property to hold the front up. however it is thin so i need to add extra support.

To give my bust support, i used one of the thick stffners formed a boob casing and sown it together (it creates like a bra boob tube effect). However placing this under the lycra you could see the folds in the stiffner ahah i thought i had some bra padding so i ve had to paint that white so it matches and stiched it to the stifner and just under the lycra. Up close you can see them however from a distance its not too bad.

next step creating the panels front panel straight down with daring and triangle edge and then added a double layer as the fabric is thin. at the min the dress back is pins and a bobble holding it.

so next stage ekkkkk, but not all is lost once i lose a bit of fabric the dress will be lighter and will want to stay in place XD

wings complete (Posted 16th October 2011)

so the wings wip picture was the first layer used 100 feathers they were the base feathers. I wanted to give a fuller looking wigs so i wanted a base layer just incase you see under the top layer you see a bottom layer. I've used 2 types of feathers the base are smaller more sturdier(not going to malt) the top layer is pretty feathery and does malt but it looks more natural.

I have to say its been a nightmare, i knocked pva all over the carpet :O and now you can see the obvious marks so ekkk

hair and make up test (Posted 3rd October 2011)

i was thinking a wig but that was a lot of work, however my hair is pretty long if you know me you've prob seen it full length. Anyway i have managed to twist into a circle and clip it up kso it looks like i have short hair XD i didnt think it was too bad for a 10 min fix up. the make up is pretty light except the red lips

omg im running out of time (Posted 29th September 2011)

I'm really running out of time, been waiting over 2 weeks for some material samples for the dress :(.

One lot of my feathers arrived, I'm still waiting for another 200 to arrive.

however not all is lost I have completed the flower part on the back, and the base for the feathers to be stuck on.

Also the base for the dress is all pinned together just needs sowing, but i learnt of some fabric spray stiffner, so i might end up using that instead. However i still have a long way to go and not much time :(

base top (Posted 12th September 2011)

well what a bummer, ive lost weight since buying this top ..... so boobage area not so good, so ill think of another way.

in other news i have featherssssss but i need more feathers. I'm also waiting for my fabric samples to arrive to choose the right one for her dress and then on with the making XD
