What I wore at expo

Edea Dress 1

WIP - Backpiece 3



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?

SilveraDestinova posted on 28 April, 2010 - 17:22
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.

Ranma1-2 posted on 6 June, 2010 - 17:20
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. :)
