Costume Information

General
Cost : £108
Time Taken : 50 hours

Description
Pascal is one of my main recognised costumes (even by the PR guys at Namco Bandai Games! Love you Hollie for jumping me!) so I am wearing Pascal to many cons over 2012 and 2013 to spread the Pascal love!

Worn:
Sunday parade at MCM London Expo October 2012
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-K1k6l6Hs0) 1 min 37 seconds in

At GemuCon 2013 (Sunday) (www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8kJxwlCr4g)

MCM Expo May 2013 (Saturday) in the Graces group (bar Malik)

Ayacon 2013 (Saturday) and masquerade

Originally made for October 2012 MCM Expo! :3 Made with great care and quality material ^_^ Thus the cost being what it is (no skimping here!) I will make the staff for her at some other time!

Remember....... 'Never, never, never give up!'

This costume was not 'Easy peasy nice and breezy!' but I enjoyed chasing people yelling 'Let me touch yoooou!'

Pascal is an Amarcian, a tribe of engineering prodigies and appears in Tales of Graces f. She has a hyperactive personality and is fascinated in mysterious technology and in Sophie's origins....

Oh and I LOVE bananas!!! Potassium FOR THE WIN! XD

Thanks hun! ^_^ after all cosplay is about being the character right as much as possible in both appearance and personality :3 x

by Raye-chan on Wednesday, 17 October, 2012 - 22:33

That's right, especially if the character you feel very close to you, people see the love you put into what you do, and the result will be wonderful ^^
Or at least, I think so ^^

^_^ Totally agree with you there! Its a passion that I hold very dear to get it right and to be true to the character :) roll on expo and fingers crossed I finish everything by the end of this weekend :3

Your pascal was awesome <3 and it was a pleasure to meet you too :3 lol though I admit I spent a lot of te looking at your costume feeling very envious if how well it was made :D you were so cute in the masquerade!

InfiniteJester - Thank you so much! It was fantastic to meet at Aya :D it was a great con ^^

Kamiko - Awww I thought you made a really cute Pascal - Some people think this costume is easy, but it really isn't, is it! XD I still can't believe I finished it in a month to be honest - I was very lucky to find the perfect fabric and took so much time on that wig >_< good thing I'm planning other Pascal outfits to make use of it! I loved the masquerade!! Butt-flap gallop with Hubert was fun!

by Raye-chan on Wednesday, 21 August, 2013 - 13:58

hehe I enjoyed your butt-flapping with Hubert :D You were super cute ^__^b lol yeah I know XD I had stupid amounts of trouble with the pouches, I really shouldnt had ¬_¬ stupid pouches. I hate them with a passion. I gotta admit I loved the fabric you used, the one I used was a bit too bright yellow. I wanna use Pascal again :D if we're ever at the same events we should take photos! It was a shame we didn't get any clone photos at Aya. I know last year Natsumi (Cheriya) wanted to do the kimono versions when we went to Japan XD Obviously we totally underestimated the time we had before we left, but I would still love to do them one day. I think I'll have to re-do my wig ^^; I was lazy and cheap and recycled two old wigs. But I love the hairstlyle, Natsumi said she'd wanna be Pascal's sister, so I'll probably make the wigs at the same time to get the exact same colours. I noticed you're gonna do a school-girl variant <3 so cute! I cant wait to see it <3

Awww Kamiko - thanks, it was so funny XD there's a pic of me in mid air lol! OMG those pouches tell me about it! I had to make each individual pouche from scratch all those mini's by hand... then the two sides... and the large butt bag XD so much effort! We shall defo have to have photos together next time ^^ I would love to see those kimono versions under cherry blossoms!! The wig took me about three weeks to colour it right >_< why do I love Pascal so much haha! Yeah I hope to do the school version soon then the others :D x
