Costume Information

Cost : £100+
Time Taken : Many weekends worth of hard work

This is the very first costume I have made from scratch. I am very proud of this although I should mention I didn't actually make any of the clothes just bought them then sewed on any modifications.

I was a little upset with the armour as the leg parts started breaking and falling off :-(...... but hey at least I know better for next time.

Bought Items (Posted 4th December 2013)

This is the first costume that I have ever made, and I am mostly do this as there are no Pyrrha costumes out there to buy yet.

So far I have spent hours searching on the internet for clothes that I could use (and modify if needed) to make up the costume.

In her wikia description it says she wears burgundy shorts but later it is referred to as a mini skirt. For comfort reason I have bought shorts (it saves me worrying that people can see up my skirt). I have also bought a red shawl/scarf, long brown socks, long brown gloves, and a yellow boob tube.

I was originally going to make the brown corset armour out of craft foam but after reading a helpful comment I have decided to buy a brown corset as it is sturdier and will support me better. For the costume I am going to sew the front back on itself and then to the top to make one piece.

All that's left for me to do is to buy a wig and green contact lenses then make her yellow armour, shield and spear. I haven't decided if I will make the armour out of craft foam or worbla yet.
