Group Masquerade Prize

3rd March 2007: So many Grandia cosplayers in one place! It was so much fun being in a group from such a bright and happy game.

Adventurers don't have time for fancy materials, so everything is cotton or natural looking fibres with rough weaves. I used a thick fleece/felt-type fabric for the belt and covered it in the orange and ribbon details. The felt is really versatile; super bendy, easy to cut, sews end to end with itself and is really strong.

I made stencils for the sleeve, boot cuff, headpiece and bag designs and then used spray paint for a really neat look and crisp lines.
The hip bag had wadding and boning inside to keep the shape and I used rivets all around the outside and added ribboning as I was going for a mix of the in game and concept artwork images.
The headpieces and whip handle were all made of sprayed funky foam with a curtain braid for the whip line and some small metal details glued on.
For the necklace I ended up using a mirror tile coated in glass paint and hung on invisible plastic thread and all the beads were pearl-effect plastic which makes a really great effect with one coat of red nail varnish (the pearling shows through like a tint).

Warning: When not trying to complete a dissertation, leave time to try on headpieces before the con weekend...I never measured the head triangles and they are far bigger than I wanted, door hazard!
