Costume Information

Description
The Dragon Quest series is one my favourite video game series, and Dragon Quest VIII is the best of the lot!

When you meet Jessica, she mistakingly believes that the protagonists are the murderers of her brother, but after witnessing a vision that proves their innocence, she joins the party as a permanent member.

Jessica was born into a wealthy family, and despite her upbringing, she's nothing like the demure lady you'd expect her to be, she's a bit of a tomboy.

I almost got to the end of this game. And then I got bored and stopped... But that's beside the point. I can't wait to see this and I'm looking forward to seeing how you do the wig. :)

Journal

Slow progress is slow (Posted 30th May 2012)

That pile looks nowhere near as huge as it actually is. That's what I'm braiding around the whip. No photos of that because it looks like shit right now.

The fabric is "sahara" faux suede and you can see what it looks like closely. Didn't want to go for leather because of personal preferences. I bought a big sheet of the stuff which I had to cut into strips, but before that I had to go along the lines I'd be cutting with fray stop to avoid, well, fraying.

Whip progress (Posted 28th February 2012)

This is taking forever...

My brother had this rope laying around at work which he gave to me for "my costume shit", and it finally came in handy! It's a bit manky and covered in oil but that doesn't matter.

The rope was insanely long and too thin for her whip, so for the core, I did a four plait round braid to get it the right size, which I then covered in gaffer tape to neaten it up a bit.

As for what will actually be seen, I’ve got some “sahara” faux suede which I’ll braid like Yuna’s hair tail around the length of it.

Top (Posted 4th August 2011)

Finished the top!

Sadly I have no photos to show as I don't have any boob tape, which I NEEEEEEED because it's so low-cut and loose. Will have to line the entire top part with the stuff to keep everything in place.

I'm pleased with how it looks, so once I've got some tape, I'll get a photo up!
