Costume Information

Cost : £73

"Only you can hear me Summoner, what masterpiece shall we play today?"

I had a real Lack of inspiration to work on another Guildwars cosplay despite really wanting to do it. After falling in love With League Of Legends i decided i would Cosplay Sona instead as not only the inspiration was high and my enthusiasm rekindled but i love playing a support and my friends wanted me to cosplay her, which is a real first for one of my cosplays i think. so inspiration is even higher now! This is my first all Fabric costume I will make her Etwah and maybe some wards too to go with it, i mean what's a support without wards?! lol

I'm pretty sure I told you how much I loved the wig and hair-thingys, but I thought it needs repeating. Plus the whole thing looked fab :)

Wig =3 (Posted 29th April 2013)

full page of how i made my wig =D blog and update on etwahl xD


oops (Posted 25th April 2013)

I have been so busy I've negelcted my journal DX but


I did write that step by step on how i made my Etwahl =3 Im so proud of how its turned out, there maybe a few minor hicups but its all in the learning, if i had the money i maybe woulda coated it in worbla.

The wig i am super proud of because when it came in the post it looked like this:


I had to detangle it, cut it and straighten it before doing anything else, then styled the bangs, added in the yellow wefts (which are removable incase i want to use the wig again) the i made the hair pieces which attatched to them are more wefts! so they can be removed if wanting to use the wig later too =)then i spent 3 hours trying to get the ponytails to blend together xD by vertically cutting the wig at a slight angle.

the ups and downs. (Posted 3rd March 2013)

had a fair few ups and downs the making of the Etwahl is going really good, but i ran out of expanding foam. I thought i messed up the dress big time, but i am so happy about how it is turning out now. my stencils i made are the right size <3 and i don't think i have anything wrong on the dress... YET! i realised that i cute the patern for the pale blue fabric wrong.. DOH! but this can be fixed YAY! i have enough fabric to redo the part that is wrong. so all is well.

It Starts here. (Posted 22nd February 2013)

Started Cosplay yesterday, Made a pattern cut out the fabric (all for the base dress only) and pinned it together with a few hitches like pins digging in and getting a really bad cold, I put it on hold until i could have more hours to myself doing it when no ones around, So for the time being onto the Etwah and cutting out the base from card.

Fabric and patterns (Posted 9th February 2013)

Already started to buy the fabric, I have a really nice Taffeta for the main dress as Satin or silk would just be too shiney and some blue netting to make a peticoat to go underneath, i still have to buy the pale blue and gold fabric and a few other bits n bobs but is getting well underway! also thanks to a freind i have the fishtail pattern i need to alter slightly to make the base dress! So excited! I have also decided to use EL wire for the Etwah because it glows when she plays musical notes so thats my plan =)
