Alys Brangwin
Phantasy Star IV

Cosplayer: DefineImagineMJ

Variant: Hunter

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

7th April 2012: Alys goes to Kitacon IV I have repaired what has needed it for Alys, and she's just about ready to be able to attend Kitacon IV (2012). It's been a while since April and May 2011 when she was last worn.

The greaves and pauldrons are almost sorted, the wig has been washed, and the boots have been tidied up.

13th April 2011: Just about done! It'll certainly be finished for the Chapelfield Gardens cosplay picnic on April 16th! It's one of my expo projects, but I'm just wearing it a little earlier as a good test run. Don't tend to get those!

3rd April 2011: Well on my way to finishing! Greaves and boomerangs 90%, just need painting (and I need to make the back of the greaves so they don't flap about), pauldrons about 80%. Afterwards, painting, varnishing and attachments!

29th March 2011: Armour and weapons in progress! I have constructed most of the armour and slashers now, I just need to do a few more bits of craft foam and gaffa tape sticking. Then it's paper mache and painting!

The dress is still in ribbon progress.

19th March 2011: Ribbon Slow and steady wins the race. zZzZzZzZzZzZzZz

11th March 2011: Velcro done! I have just finished sewing the velcro to the jacket-dress, and also have the belts and pouches in my possession as well!

Now for the long haul of sewing the white ribbon all around that jacket-dress.

22nd February 2011: Most Main Parts Assembled All I need now is a belt with some pouches, then there are six things to do: slashers/boomerangs, knee guards and pauldrons to be made, and the hemming, velcro and ribbon of the hunter dress.

I've now bought my boots for her, so it's all the heavy work to do now: ribbon, slashers/boomerangs, pauldrons and knee guards.

DefineImagineMJ - 25th March 2011
Don't worry, I'll be adding pictures of the finished dress soon!
I just have the front and the collar to do with the ribbon.
After that it's just the knee-guards, pauldrons and slashers/boomerangs.

Thank you for both comments. ^_^'
If I work hard on them over the next two days, then it'll look awesome.

I think I should be ok with the boomerangs...they don't "look" like weapons do they?

Raye-chan avatar

Raye-chan - 13th April 2011
No the boomerangs dont ^_^ you'll be fine with them... and overall... this cosplay....is.... EPIC! ^_^

This is looking fabulous! I'm blown away by every single one of your cosplays.

Aw thanks R0cket. Means a lot. ^_^'
I hope a few people will recognise her and Zio at expo (I intend to get Zio finished for then). I mean, those other than the commentees on here. ^_^
It's such an old RPG but I hope there are more of those who still love it.

I know what you mean, I cosplayed Nel Zelpher from Star Ocean 3 (2003 release) and only one person recognised me, haha!
Phantasy Star IV is an oldie but it's also a popular classic, so fingers crossed! Though whether they recognise the characters or not, they'll definitely notice the talent and effort put into the costume =]

DefineImagineMJ avatar

DefineImagineMJ - 14th April 2011
Ah, it's a shame I only started cosplaying in 2009. I'd have known you as Nel Zelpher as well!

Not many recognised us in Legend of Dragoon gear in October 2009, but a few did. So I hope SOME will know who we are at least. ^^'
Thank you again too.

looking great in this! :D That hair suits you so well. *_*
Very nice work on the costume, it's so rare to see good Phantasy Star cosplay.

Thank you very much. ^_^
It's one reason I'm doing her and Zio at May Expo.

In-fact, that wig is somewhat close to my natural colour (but naturally mine is darker but I have it dyed red).
