It looks lovely so far! I really like the stripes on the front, and the fabric for the cape. :)

Have you been using a stabalising fabric behind the embroidery? I also suggest making smaller stitches to cover larger areas, that will stop the issues with the thread looking wrong when you remove it from the hoop. Using such a thin material can be troublesome when embroidering (I try and stay away from satins unless it's duchesse as they can be a bugger to sew and don't look great...), you need the stability of a straight grained material behind it. You can then cut away the excess stabliser material around it and you will be left with a nice solid piece of embroidery. The effect of the gold on the green looks fantastic though, I admire your patience ^^

In response to the comment on Reborn, that's not me but my brother, and I bent wire intu curls and sprayed it black. The wire then hooks around the back of his head and ears so they blend in his black hair. As for Rydia, I saw it at the Travelodge when the fire alarm went off and it looked great, even though most people were half done lolol.

Thank you! That sweet of you to say! Old costume is very old though! x) I'm hoping to do a third version at some point. ^^

Zelda posted on 22 March, 2010 - 00:12
Omg, i would love to see that, that would be so amazing ^^

BlusterSquall posted on 22 March, 2010 - 00:15
Haha, well, I did start a third version, but it got put on the back burner for other costumes for a while. But I hope to resume it later this year maybe! So watch this space! ^__^

Shiro Hana posted on 26 March, 2010 - 15:42
I'm liking it a lot :) Would you be alright if I made a version of Rydia to go with your (3rd) one?

BlusterSquall posted on 31 March, 2010 - 00:44
Yeah sure. I mean, I don't know when I'm going to get it finished for, and it certainly won't be for this year, but by all means! ^^ Final Fantasy IV can always do with a it more love. :]
