Lehas - Magna Carta: Crimson Stigmata


This Expo's theme is organised teacher-types ^^ Lehas is a great character, keeping everything running while the others flounce off to beat things up. When will they stop spending all the money, honestly.

I finally finished Lehas! I've had the rough dress hanging around for a very long time, so I'm glad to finally see it finished. I love this costume for my book prop :D It's cardboard and hollow, so I could carry my phone and wallet with me for the first time ever! It was also the first thing I made for this costume, so I'm suprised it's still in one piece.

A huge thanks to RachelMei for the glasses, and to Tak for taking the best photos ever :D

I chose faux suedes for the over-dress and neck strap and a super floaty peachskin cotton for the petticoats. If I wear this again, I must shorten the petticoat at the front, it seems to be just showing beneath the dress all the time.

The petticoat was flat across the front with lots of triangle inserts at the back to make it fuller. The lace front was a pannel of black mesh with three rows of scalloped lace sewn on top.

I really enjoyed painting the design on the back! I used acrylic paint on interfaced black cotton with a card stencil and lots of blending. I did want to do all the metal studs down the back, but because I put the zipper in the front I couldn't get the rivetting tool further than the top set. I might move the zip to the back for a second attempt.

The hardest part was getting the seams at the front to curve away from the centre without actually flaring the skirt. Much pinning and very slow sewing, very frustrating.

Lehas, one of the absolutely sexiest characters in MC, in my opinion. Very well done, it suits you perfectly :D
