Very in character, Gogomi xD It was a lot of fun, can’t wait to do upgrades!

Tail Begins

Unbent a wire coathanger for the tail support and wrapped it in wadding until it looked the right size. This way the stuffing won’t separate or let the wire end poke through when it’s being reposed. The wadding is cut down in a spiral from the top so it’s a little fuller at the bottom.

Wig Styling

It was trial and error getting the right place to put the ears. At this point I realised in the tutorial the bottom of the worbla gets cut off at an angle so they sit closer to the head, but it’s not made clear. Wig is an Ash from Coscraft in Dark Green. Straightened and layered in the front with a razor comb. Once in place the hair parting around the ears leaves it very thin just below. To make it easier to part and get more cover I threaded the first weft above the ears down inside the wig and back out just below the ears again.

Floof!

The felt was coloured with pink and green eyeshadows brushed into the fibres. The fur is a super plush dark green. I bought a 5mm fur for the tail and trimmed it down for the ears, first with scissors and then an electric trimmer. The fur wouldn’t go between the guard on the trimmer, so I had to free-hand it. Nerve wracking, but I’m happy with how it turned out.

Ear Pattern

I looked at a few ear tutorials and went with Kamui’s method as these are longer than the dog/cat ears I’ve made before and need a little more strength. Getting the pattern proportions right took quite a while, but then copying it to worbla and adding the felt inside was really quick.

Warriors of Light, Assemble!

Going to a few FF fan events this year, so I’m making a cosplay of my Miquo’te character in the game. Starting with a closet cosplay of the starter set for Kupocon, but doing the ears and wig properly so I can upgrade it for a full costume later.
