Description
Haven't played Ragnarok in FOREVER, but I've always loved some of the character designs~

Not really sure why I chose the Archbishop job, but I'm doing it so there we go!
There's so many different art references for the classes, each with different variations on parts, but the one I've chosen seems to give the most detail.

Excuse the awful coloring of the photos - crappy indoor lighting + camera phone.

Ok, so I've been really slow with this costume - just a little bit a day, but it's getting there!
I've had some drama with the corset not fitting - - so the alterations have made the front look a little iffy - including the fact it was too short. This has been remedied with the strip at the top, which will thankfully be covered by a gold strip from the design!

The trailing tail.. things are all but complete - the white ones need the little crosses, and I'm tempted to make the gold ones a little thinner, but they're ok for now.

Jacket needs sleeves and collar, so that's all good.

Skirt needs the front panel and the lace & sheer butt skirts to be completed.

Bodice just needs to be sewn up completely and gold details added, then should be good to go.

Definitely on track for Gemu~!
The wig and shoes are both here, the wig is more yellow than I hoped, but I don't have time to replace it now! Thankfully you can dye stuff in game, so I'll just claim that ;P

So today I've been getting on with the Archbishop costume. I've made up the corset, just need to cut the bones to size and edge it before adding the chest details and then moving on to everything else
Everything from the white thread downwards will be covered by the waistband and skirt pieces, but I don't want to cut them off as they help keep the shape of the rest of it.
The corset isn't waist reducing, purely fashion, as I'm too lazy to sew in more bones and when I do use them I like to add them in using channels which I don't think would look good on this particular costume. It has two spiral steel bones down the bust to keep the shape along that line, but they're sewn into the seam itself.
