Aya Gozen - Samurai Warriors 3


I haven't played Samurai Warriors 3 because Koei were silly and released it on the Wii *grumble grumble* However, I really loved their newest designs, and found that Aya Gozen appeared to bring a lot of elegance to the game with her simple yet stunning image.
I decided to use the best fabrics I could get my hands on, hence the large price tag. The coat is made from Chinese silk and lined with a beautiful purple satin. I spent hours searching for the right silk, trying to find a pattern that fit her's almost perfectly. I think it is safe to say my hours of searching paid off ^^ There are approximately 21 meters of gold ribbon on this, and attaching all that nearly killed me because I have to do everything by hand! The tassels were annoying as hell - especially the one at the front of the hood that insisted on irritating my nose when I was wearing it - so I won't say much about them. The detail on the boots are simply craft foam, however when I wore them the symbols kept attacking each other and one would often go flying across the hall *sigh*
It was my first time making a pole arm, and I think it turned out pretty well, however because of uni and life in general I couldn't get the most decent of materials thus the blade is made up of craft foam and lolly pop sticks! I won't lie, it is strong and survived Expo ^^
