|Time Taken :||Just under a week|
|My Halloween costume! 8D |
I have loved the Skull Mages ever since I saw them~ Being a Blue Mage since I can use my blueish Mikuo wig for it...Not that the Blue Mages have hair that blue, but we can pretend they do.
It's compreted! Well, it's complete as it's going to get for a while. I decided against some of the details for now, but since I have the fabric to make them with I'll probably add them when I get bored or something. I am very happy with this! 8D I also feel more like a true cosplayer since this costume made me need to stay up till 2:30 more than once to work on it, and also it was made in less than a week only because of those late night workings. I feel like I've leveled up.

I am exite! (Posted 25th October 2011)
YES I AM. I just finished making the shirt and I gotta say...I am very proud of it. It's probably the best one I've ever made as it fits perfectly and the zig-zag blue part turned out pretty neat. I'm very pleased!
I also need to fix the hood at the back...an idea I had while I was really tired turned out to not be so great, and the result is the hood making me look like I have a hunchback xP Hopefully the fake ties will be useful for fixing that up, but we shall see.
6 hours till the anime/game/Japanese society's Halloween party! xD
Asymmetrical in the best of ways (Posted 22nd October 2011)
Phew, I have been working on this since like...10! It's now 1:40 in the morning. Granted, it was work-pause-work-pause, but still. I got the majority of the hood AND the cape done! 8D Exiting stuff! I like the freedom I have with these parts, they don't need to be symmetrical at all.
The hood! Lemme tell ya, the ears were hard to place correctly xP Everything else was fine though, after getting the shape and such figured out (which too longer than I would have liked) All that's left to do on it is add the swirls on the eyes and possibly add the extra brown "ties" to the back. I don't think I'm going to get around to making the rings for it by Halloween.
The cape is all cut and stuff, it was lotsa fun to do! All I need to do is thread the ribbon tie through.
