Costume Information

Description
Very little good hasd come out of SC4 but there are a few gems hidden in there. Despite how horrid Tira's default costume is in SC4 I completly fell in love with her 2P outfit and I think it definatly suits her character. Plus I like that it ties back to her default costume from SC3 :)

I'm definatly going to take my time over making this outfit and have a feeling I'll be buying a lot of leatherette and purple spray paint xD

[EDIT]

Wearing this costume at Aya con was much fun! ^^ and especially being part of the awesome Soul Calibur group.

My only regret is that I didn't manage to 100% finish the costume before the con u_u I was missing armour and a few minor details, but I'm stil very happy with the outcome and it was MOSTLY finished afterall (and that I also forgot my body-tape to glue the costume to my body in areas because it's a non-stretch material...thus is was a bit bulgey and flappy at the back.. which annoys me in the photos). Next time I wear this costume it will be 100% complete instead of 95% complete! LOL

Thanks VanillaMoon ^_^

The ringblade is mostly made from foam-board :) (with layering of segments for the inner ring details finished with paper-mache and painting)

Feeling achievment (Posted 16th July 2009)

I feel like I'm finally getting somewhere now as I&amp;#039;ve found a spray to colour the leatherette and also I finally have skulls! OMG they were really hard to find o_O oddly. I thought finding 9 small skulls was going to be the easy part...I was wrong. So I've got the green body of the dress done and I'm feeling achievment!I've also done most of the hat and about 50% of both the neck collar and the big drapey shoulder collar.

Also not long to go and still so much to do! Need more time~~

Though I&amp;#039;d post some WIP&amp;#039;s :)

It does begin! (Posted 9th June 2009)

Recently I was finally able to get some material in the colours I need so sewing was able to start! I'm so relieved. Not long left now to go to make this costume in, after all.

The hat is 2/3's done and I've begun work on the dress. I'm still lacking the leatherette I need though..Might have to paint some.

I might even post some WIP's soon :)

It begins? (Posted 3rd May 2009)

I've finally begund buying bits of things I need for this costume (trims, lace, cord, clay etc). Much later than I would like! and not for lack of trying either! It has proven harder than I originally thought to find the materials I need in the colours I need - which is still an ongoing process... So for now I'll start on casting and making all buckles and skulls, I guess; do what I can while I can.

I'm very much itching to begin sewing on this though...! (Especially seeing as Aya Con is creeping closer very fast >_>; eep!)
