Lulu - Final Fantasy 10

In Progress

CosXPo 2019


 


Just realsed It’s been 3 years since I have made a costume. I don’t really count the ones I throw together last minute. Anyway, I have been replaying FFX and forgot how much I loved Lulu as a character. Decided I must cosplay her <3

No comments received.

Onion Knight skin

Started embroidering the face and stitching the pattern pieces together. Still don’t know whether to make the sword and shield out of polyester filling, or whether I should use fimo clay. Still tonnes more work to do anyway...

Making the Pattern for Onion Knight

Ok, so I have finally got the shape I want. Today’s task was to cover the shape in cling film and create a pattern by cutting the cling film into segments. Maybe this way is very long winded. But it ensures I get the exact shape and size I want. Tomorrow, I am going to start cutting the fabric and finally getting some skin for the little onion man ;)

Painting Faux Leather (for Onion Knight)

Recently I have been doing this thing where I am recycling as many fabrics as possible for making future cosplays. Having been at it for over 10 years you can imagine how many boxes of fabric I have in storage. Rather than buying some orange faux leather I have chosen to paint some old black faux leather. The process was done by using primer for the base, followed by 3 coats of orange acrylic paint.

Onion Knight Shaping

More progress. Unfortunately there aren’t any good quality photos of the Onion Knight. Because of this I am having to guess how the hands look. I am pretty sure they are Lego man hands lol. I have opted to use wire for the arms as they are too thin to just use polyester filling. They need to be able to support a small sword. It probably only needs a bit more plumping out, then I can move on to the pattern.

Onion Knight Plushie

I have taken a break from the other Lulu bits to get started on Lulu’s Ultimate weapon, the Onion Knight. I have only made one plushie before, but I feel more comfortable by getting the shape and proportions first by sewing together Polyester stuffing. I will then create a pattern from this shape.

Earrings

I remade these. Wasn’t really happy with my first attempt. I am such a fimo clutz.

Many belts later...

Keep thinking I have made enough belts but it’s never enough....my aim was to get this costume finished by the end of October. There is still time...

Attached fur trim to corset and sleeves

All I have left to do with this is figure out a way to hold it up better and trim the excess thread from the embroidered sleeves. I had to hand sew most of the fur to attach it.

Necklaces

Made using Fimo clay and beads. Actually got a cookie cutter to shape the purple beads. I couldn’t help but choose the glitter option of clay. Probably not appropriate, but I am such a hidden glitter queen.

14th October 2018

Making and attaching belts

I am planning to make a crinoline to give the belts some much needed support. Currently attaching each belt to fabric.

23rd September 2018

More trim

All nearly done now. Just finishing the bottom edges.

2nd September 2018

Trim

I think I have given myself a lot of work to do with these, oh well! Combination of paint and Embroidery.

21st August 2018

Corset

Just the back of the corset I made.

14th July 2018

Chopsticks

Chopsticks. Will probably have to attach these to the wig permanently due to the weight of them. Made using knitting needles, Fimo clay and wire. I am trying to make this costume as cheap as possible without it looking too cheap.
