|Every year I cosplay, I do at least one Kozi cosplay. Not wanting to break tradition, I wanted to choose something cheaper to make considering how much my other cosplay cost! Also people have been telling me to do this cosplay for ages!|
This is one of Kozi's simpler costumes; I took some liberties with it (e.g. I made it out of cotton rather than acetate satin because acetate satin is more expensive and less comfortable--and it's only when you watch a high quality version of Verte Aile that you can see it's made of shiny fabric!)
A problem I ran into with this costume was the boots--simply because I can't get bronzey-coloured platforms with a curly horned toe (nor can I make them). So I'm just using plain black platforms instead. I made the pompoms with fake fur since I couldn't find large ones of the right size (and it worked out cheaper than buying wool and making them that way).
Most of this costume was pretty damn easy to make--baggy trousers and a baggy tunic top with ruched sleeves. The ruff and the pompoms on the tunic top took most time because I had to hand-sew most of them!
