Edea Kramer (Finished version) - Final Fantasy VIII





I've always loved this costume and have wanted to make it for some time now, Upon going through so many different ideas on who to be for the MCM in May I settled on all 4 lol: Edea, Rinoa, Siren and Shiva a lot of work but so worth it =D.

Originally I wanted to be Phoenix (FF8) and Sun Shang Xiang from Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce but finding the correct fabrics and the time scale needed was a bit too much so I went for the other costumes instead - I love Final Fantasy 8 and actually feel more comfortable with the characters I chose in the end XD.

I know I will find this costume a lot of work and effort but I know it will pay off in the end and so far i'm enjoying making the back piece ^^

Tab was going to be making my head piece originally but I decided to make it myself instead. She's nearly complete EXCITED! =D

Very excited to see this! I'm planning to cosplay her myself so I'm interested to see the methods you'll be using for the backpiece and headpiece :)

The dress looks really lovely. Is it a spandex fabric? I find that spandex actually does wonders for dresses and such. -Tab

Progress is looking great. :) Have you found a source for feathers?

Thanks guys ^^ Tab - Yeah its spandex fabric, I figured it would hug my figure better to give a better shape :) I can't wait to finish it i'm so excited about this costume =D Ranma1-2 - Yeah there is a local fabric shop to me called Abakhan and they do pretty good quality feathers for reasonable prices :) I was going to go to Hobby Craft but their products can be a bit too pricy :(

Fantastci Edea. The back piece is epic.

Aww you looked FAB. I am kicking myself now cuz I saw you in the masquerade queue behind me and I didnt go to say a quick hi. We were saying how your back piece (is there a name for it?) looked spot on, finely detailed but not too fragile, and wow you have the right curves to give that dress the right shape. Great cosplay. :)

I'm at 20% completion with this. I was going to have Tab make this but i've decided to make it myself instead - I'd feel a better sense of accomplishment having made everything myself =D
