Costume Information

Description
Most likely for Kitacon next year as part of a Graces children group with Sisceal and Kirarayumi as Sophie and Asbel (TWERPFACE).
I don't think I'd ever cosplay Richard as an adult but I really love his child variant so would love to do this.
NOTE: I am using in-game references for the colour shading as I'm not too fond on Richard's platinum blonde hair tone in the anime references. Therefore there are also colour deviations to the clothing too such as his collar which looks more of a cream/ivory colour in the game rather than white as in the anime reference.

EDIT: 05/02 - Putting this costume to complete now as it's only small items left to finish that I may or may not get round to before the convention - just painting the sword and making his hat.

No worries hun - if the costume comes out okay, i'll gladly wear it again (especially as it's likely to be a while before I get around to making Asbel!)

Journal

hat complete (Posted 25th March 2014)

Sorted and put together the hat today though it's not perfect. It'll hopefully do though for the con - I've cushioned it out to try and get the puffy effect his has and made the gold ornament from clay.

Hat progress (Posted 24th March 2014)

So I started making his hat yesterday though am doubtful I will finish it in time for the con (also the design is kinda tricky so not sure it will work either!) I've cut out the green fabric though ready to sew together as cushiony segments to cover the base hat with and made the decoration from clay. Hoping to try and put this together mostly tomorrow if I have time!

Props (Posted 25th February 2014)

Painted the detailing on the sword today - just need to add on the strap to attach to the belt once it's dry.

Boots complete (Posted 5th February 2014)

Did the custom work on the boots today - they're just a pair in the right colour I bought from Primark which I've cut down to the correct height. added the buckle detail and added on the beige parts. There's actually more beige around the heel area on the official design but I honestly didn't like that much as I prefer to have more of the colour contrast with the brown so I've missed those bits out (plus they'd only get muddy anyway!)

Wig cut (Posted 3rd February 2014)

Spent about an hour or cutting the wig - mostly just the fringe and a bit at the sides and back. It's still a little long at the back but I didn't want to cut it too short and his style is fairly all over the place anyway in terms of length. (also added photos here of the finished shorts and the brooch - the shorts only look good on a person though due to puffy look)

Last bits to go! (Posted 3rd February 2014)

Sewed on the bias around the collar today - it still doesn't look as neat as I'd like it to be but is fine unless you look close up. Finished the shorts too and started cutting the boots for customisation - just need to sew/glue on the beige detailing on it. Hooray for being almost done - once i've cut the wig, i'll no doubt do a full costume test. Photo shows top half only, minus brooch.

Collar progress (Posted 1st February 2014)

I cut out and sewed together the puffy decoration bits for the shorts yesterday, ready to be handsewn sometime sewn. Wasn't my original idea to make them seperate as I originally had planned to make the shorts actually puffy so I could put holes in them for the perfect look but in the end I decided to go for the easier option due to time constraints. Made the collar yesterday which went fine apart from accidentally making the back too small and having to add an extra panel. The triangular edging also frays a little currently so I'll be getting some bias later to sew around the edges - doubles up as pretty decoration too I guess! Next week, hoping to get this totally finished - just need to customise the boots and cut the wig really. Leaving the weapon and hat until a later date.

Progress (Posted 28th January 2014)

Eventually managed to sort the leg holes out today on the shorts so it's all in one piece now. Just need to add on the slit details. I'm not happy with the overall shape of them but I have neither the time or the material to redo them sadly - at least they don't look ridiculously large like they did before. Also hot glued the cravat pin together. Just the short detailing, collar and shoes custom to do which I should hopefully finish this week. Going to leave the hat until the end in case I run out of time as it's not a vital part of the costume.

shorts almost done (Posted 27th January 2014)

Had to handsew on the waistband as it was too thick for the machine but only realised once i'd put in the elastic that i'd made the waist far too wide so it looked ridiculously large on me, like clown trousers :P Live and learn I guess. Took in the waist after that and readded in the elastic and it sits a lot better now - just need to sort the leg holes and white slits on them and complete! Aiming to get these, the collar and the brooch done this week so hopefully then only just the boots and weapon to customise.

shorts progress (Posted 26th January 2014)

Mostly sewed the shorts together today - they look ridiculously big at the moment as I'd had to allow for the puff effect. Halfway through sewing on the waistband, which I've had to do by hand sewing, rather than machine as the material is far too thick, with the pleating added in too. I'm hoping once it's sewn on and the elastic has been put in there and at the bottom of the legs, it will have the desired effect otherwise I'll likely have to take it apart and redo it.

Top half almost complete (Posted 23rd January 2014)

Finished sewing the trim onto Richard's tunic today and it thankfully behaved this time! Made the cravat too which was nice and simple. His brooch is also in progress and I just need to hot glue the various parts together now and hope it looks okay (I sadly had to buy different wings that what I originally wanted which is a shame as these ones don't look as pretty). Should make either his collar or the shorts over the weekend!

Progress (Posted 21st January 2014)

I accidentally didn't buy enough trim as I totally forgot about the front side details as well as the edging so will have to buy more 2mos. Otherwise I made the collar today and fitted the zip. Also sewed on what I could of the trim - it's a hella pain to work with as it frays really badly and ended up wrecking the needle on my machine. Hopefully I should get it done during the week though! Also hot glued on the gems to the front. Aiming to totally finish the top this week and make the cravat and detachable collar so I can start the shorts next week!

Tunic progress (Posted 19th January 2014)

His top/tunic is almost complete now - Just need to add on the zip and decorative details. Still shocked how fast this came together, despite the sleeve cuffs proving to be a bit of a pain. Pretty sure there was probably a better way to do them but my brain couldn't figure it out with le elastic being put in before I added on the flowery cuffs.

Started sewing... (Posted 18th January 2014)

Started on Richard's tunic yesterday - going surprisingly well so far and it's almost complete now - just need to hem the front panels, add on the cuffs and collar and do the decoration (which will be next week due to not having bought it yet :P). Hoping to get this totally finish this week and most of the collar/cravat too so I can start on the puffy shorts!

Wig arrived and START (Posted 17th January 2014)

The wig arrived this morning (ironic, considering i'm going to start sewing his tunic today). I wasn't sure if it was too dark a colour at first as it looked more browney than blonde but after taking a quick photo and checking with my Asbel and Sophie, we agreed it will work. His hair is such a strange one to match and it seems to change colour within the game constantly. Photos are uncut and unstyled so this will look much better at a later point!

progress (Posted 21st December 2013)

Made a pattern and started cutting out fabric today. Decided to cheat and make the shirt and waistcoat into one piece as I don't have enough if the really nice shirt fabic to make more than the sleeves with.

the start (Posted 6th October 2013)

Bought the base fabric for his shorts and waistcoat today (already have the under shirt material)
