I'll be searching for this one. Marina was always in my squad and really stood out for me the moment I saw her character.

Oh wow, Marina is one of the coolest VC characters! Awesome job so far :D

looks awesome, really accurate. I've actually been looking this morning for fabric for a VC1 costume. What fabric did you end up using?

best sniper of the game great costume :P

@Yami-no-neko: I used blue cotton drill. Very pricey fabric, £10 per metre O.O" I bought it from The Cloth House in central London. (the fabric colour will wear off after a wash and creases; which is very bad!) D: @FFGamerGirl: Right you are =D Although she misses some of the time *rage*

Nice costume, especially the detail on the gun.

Progress Journal

1st August 2013

Officially completed!

As of today I'm finished repairing and adding extra accessories to this costume. I also upgraded the sniper rifle to a different look.
The only things that still annoy me are the spats and the wig, though the problem is minor. However, two weeks until the final Ayacon will commence, I think I can fix them in time =)

9th July 2013

Repairing Marina

For the final Ayacon 2013, I decided to repair Marina's outfit and her rifle. I've been gathered by a fellow cosplayer a year ago to do a group. Unfortunately I only just started on it and I can't find a better black turtle neck top to replace the old one (it's summer right now, so finding turtle necks at this time is impossible).

There are so items that I've labelled as retired and grouping items but still have them on the shopping list. Just wondering how much I actually spent on this cosplay back then and now.

I have about 5 weeks to polish up, so I'm not far from finish. However, I can no longer wear contacts as I fear that my right eye will have problems again.

11th August 2010

Fail

I managed to make the extra parts for the gloves but I didn't have enough time to add the blue/white buttons on the front or those tiny bags on her belt =/

4th June 2010

Still incomplete!

Yes, although I wore it at the Expo, I had more things like spats, gloves and more bags to do =(

I will complete it for Amecon!

19th May 2010

Final week and two days

Got two guns completed, 2 sniper rifles to go. We haven't got any spats, gloves or bags done xD Whee~ Stress kicking in nicely...

4th May 2010

4 weeks left!

I haven't got ANY guns finished yet >__< I'll need to dedicate my time to do those otherwise we're all gunless!

17th March 2010

=/

Well, the leader who's knows what's doing is actually making all six costume by herself O__O" The others would like to help out! Alas, the Easter holiday has arrived and she'll be away for the holidays.

I've decided to do make the guns during Easter, it'll be my first time doing this!!

10th March 2010

Wigs needed ASAP

I've bought 20 metres of cotton drill yesterday and it was a bitch to carry! Muscle pains indeed! Also got some red cotton too.

Just as we getting cracking onto making the costumes, I realise some of the wigs on Fantasy Sheep ebay are not there anymore, I will have to use my own pocket money to get these wigs >__<

17th February 2010

Battle strategy - Fabric and wigs

We're now onto buying the fabrics and most expensively, the wigs from eBay. Oh mai!

1st February 2010

Commence battle - Greaseproof paper

Soldiers are ready to start on measurements and draw panels on greaseproof paper. Wigs will be required for everyone, but not everyone would want to pay so much for a completely awesome wig from Fantasy Sheep.
Sir, I demand another group trip to a fabric store. Once we have these panels on calico, we will and I say we will start drawing blood on 'ere!

2nd January 2010

Pattern and materials

Currently drawing up the costume and seeing what are the possible materials can be used. So Denim or Khaki are the suitable choices to get that nice army like outfit.
I'm also looking for leather gloves xD This is going to be another expensive outfit to make. Probably more than my Rhys one.

Gathering Allies

Montblanc is recruiting the Gallian army from the MAGS. We currently have a few members wanting to cosplay the side characters from VC. Anyone is willing to be a Jann, Montblanc will love you forever xD
