LeBlanc - FFX-2


AmeCon 2008

3rd Place at Amecon, Best Female - Neo Magazine Oct 08

Showcased 11th December 2011 What is this?


Made from stage satin (apart from the orange lining as it didn't come in the right shade of orange).

The collar was made from a wire frame with some stiff interfacing fabric sandwiched over the top to create the right shape, and then fushia fabric hand sewn over the top. the triangles were then stitched into place, again done by hand. Its then fastened on by 6 poppers, three either side!

The main body is made from three pieces, first a long peice cut into a swimming costume type shape, seams at the shoulders, then two pieces forming the sash across the body. Again triangles were hand stitched into place.

The sleeves had two shoulder pads sewn in the wrong way round (two on each shoulder) to give the right shape. The bottom sleeves were hand stitched with triangles and the lattice work was hand stitched to each half of the sleeve.

The leg straps were made from purple leatherette and added on last. The costume was stuck to me using industrial strength toupee tape! the heart was drawn on with red eyeliner and fixed with cheap hairspray (cheap always works best with this kind of thing)

Shoes: used a cheap pair of court shoes in the right shape, then made giant boot toppers which were stuck to the shoe and elasticated at the top. The blue detailing, just like the sleeves, was again hand stitched.

Gold ankle cuff were made with left over wire and interfacing from the collar and gold silky satin carefully stitched over to give the metallic look.

The fan was made from a large piece of card, some layers of papier mache and some paint! (several paper prototypes were made to get the shape as accurate as possible)

Finally hair ornaments were made from actually chopsticks and two plastic postage tube ends, some card and more papier mache!

This took three months of solid work (due to lack of job this was possible) and all bar two or three seams was hand stitched to make it look as shiny as possible!

I love this and intend to wear her a lot!

Professional photos will be added soon

"Industrial strength toupee tape!" Im guessing that was chosen because of strength, Im just wondering if that would have hart at all when it came to taking it off.
