Celes Chere (Amano) - Final Fantasy VI


Amecon 2012


I LOVE this costume. It's such a shame that my wig came out so fizzy.
This entire costume was made by hand (without a sewing machine) and the embroidery took forever to do, but I'm so proud with how it came out :D I went with colours that seemed more...natural. The beige is a suede-y material and the purple a velvet (they seemed to be the best materials when looking at the refer. pictures).

I'm looking forward to doing her, but I need to figure out what material to use. However, first I have kita and minami to deal with.

That would be awesome, photos with someone as talented with you would be an honour! Can't wait to see how this turns out~

You downplay yourself, you have some costumes that far outstretch others I've seen of them :D...blah, not sure if that actually made sense...

Sorceress-Eiva posted on 14 November, 2010 - 18:28
Ahaha, no, it made sense XD I don't agree, but thank you very much anyway <3 Can't wait to see you either!

ohhh I won't be going to an England expo for quite a while I need to save up a bit more xD

Ah, sorry, I tend to assume that memebers on here are British. My mistake.

LekLek posted on 31 December, 2010 - 04:06
it's okay, it's an expected generalization. I really only made the account cause I was going over to england and well, I've sorta decided to keep it and leave it as my progress of costumes site and coscom for the completed outfit photos

I seriously admire your dedication to hand embroidering all those pattterns O.o this looks so beautiful ^^

j_mercuryuk posted on 12 December, 2011 - 14:20
Thanks everyone, it's good to hear that the effort I'm putting in is paying off :D Pandora: :D Well, I've had to hand sew the entire outfit (so far that's the jacket, top and trousers and half the belt), so the embroidery was almost a welcome break.

Aw wow, your progress is looking beautiful! When are you planning to wear this? I'd love to see it complete, I'm making Amano Terra myself ^_^

j_mercuryuk posted on 21 February, 2012 - 15:10
Thank you :D I'll be wearing it in England on the Friday at Amecon (and my CW will be doing Amano Garnet with me :)), but I'll most likely wear it before then for a Sendai Comiket. Cool, I've seen your other costumes and they are amazing, so I look forward to seeing what you do with Terra. Shame you're doing her for Kita though, it's be nice to find you and so I can have some photos with a Terra :)

Hmm, this gonna take longer than intended

I've actually decided to write a journal entry for a costume for once. Well, I found out that while my mini sewing machine doesn't mind three layers of material, it won't do four so I managed to finish hand-sewing the top together last night, now I need to do the eyelets so I can do it up and make any adjustments, and then add the bias binding to the top and bottom. After some 'leather' cord to tie it up, I should be finished with the top. I used a 'corset' top as a basis to make the pattern of the top.
