Costume Information

Cost : £150+
Time Taken : 2 weeks

;) Surprise costume.

To be done with SunsetDancer, with his surprise costume, it will be replacing our 'Draw with me' cosplay's that we were doing on the friday :) So excited!

EDIT: 14/08/2012

So back from Amecon! All worn out and got this done so I can add a proper desc.
I love Asuna! She was 100% my girl in the light novels and the manga, I was a little dissapointed she wasn't in the first few eps of the anime but now she's in it I'm hoping others will really like her too! She's super smart and beautiful and definitely in my category of awesome cosplays.

The cosplay itself had to be done within 2 weeks so its heavily rushed and the appliqué is horrendous but i am super happy with how it came out because of how much time and money I had to spend on it- It was my first crack at armour too which sunsetdancer templated and cut for me I just painted and added detail- He also did my sword for me and the sheath which is heavily rushed.

Asuna ranks in my top favourite anime girls, without a doubt.

Le outtake! (Posted 17th August 2012)


full costume! (Posted 15th August 2012)

Taken by Dan!

almost done. (Posted 15th August 2012)

I didn't get a picture of the belts or arm harness or socks being made- I didnt get time as i started to panic as it was 2 days before leaving, The socks here are just pinned as they had to be glued onto me on the day and sorted out, the skirt is 3 metre's of red polycotton with a thin white bias, and goes from my waist. the arm harness isnt in the picture but is in the final pictures- it is made from red suede with a custom pattern and gold ribbon along the outside, the smaller inside line is painted with gold acrylic and the whole thing has thick sew in interfacing on it.
