Costume Information

this maybe the hardest costume i will make as it is a mix of materials im tempted to use a body cast for the front panel and umm all the other bits. yea this is going to be hard lol

mwhahahaha i think my head might explode with the thought of making it yet the planning has begun and the materials bought

velcro?... Velcro .... VELCRO!!! yes i used a lot of velcro lol

video 2mins 25 are you a fan of J Po :D

if i go to expo in october ill bring her out as there are a few star ocean cosplayers going i might make a group closer to the time, i think ill just do touch ups rather than remake this costume as it did cost a lot but the bow i might redo if i have time :P


so worn at may expo 2011 and october expo 2011 XD

I returned home last weekend and went through my cosplay wardrobe and i saw this costume, it had been placed under a lot of weight and it caused damage beyond repair, so i am sad to say this costume cannot be worn again. It is the end of an era :(

edits (Posted 7th October 2011)

so one thing i really really hated about this costume was the shoes gah they are just crap so ive started remaking them and building layers with craft foam so they should look a bit better hopefully i dont want to let my edge down :)

if i do it again huge possibility (Posted 3rd June 2011)

if i do this agoin maybe for october cos there are a few Star occean characters, im going to remake the bow but leave it flashing and alter the costume maybe make a new bust piece

complete (Posted 24th May 2011)

the costume is complete, it was done a while ago but i just added a few things, and also needed to try it all on. So im just hoping it lasts lol or i shall be at the cosplay fixing desk before i go on stage lol

the weapon the weapon is epic, its 4 ft. and has a lot of foam hahaha

my costume is extra special but shhhhh

expert (Posted 23rd May 2011)

as im in expert ive decided to add loads of little details and ive really tried to up my game on the bow, only tiny bits left to do and that is mainly trying to keep it from falling apart lol

hopefully on the night it will look a bit better than the 90% photo i have up. i would put up final pictures but i broke my laptop and my cameras SD card so you will just have to wait till saturday pm / parade :D

90% (Posted 28th April 2011)

so i wanted to finish it tonight so i can get on with my yuna 2 outfit, however life doesnt go to plan.

what needs to be finished,
emblem needs to be added,
shoes need to be glued (again)
maybe highlight a few areas to make them stand out
ive lost my white gloves and pink ribbon
and i need to do the hair piece
oh and sort out the right upper arm

this cosplay has been an epic challenge i started it back in october can you believe, ive cried ive torn things up and ive spent a hell of a lot of money lol but its a dream cosplay i had to do it.

just on a little note i burnt myself with a glue gun so im now in a bit of pain :( but thats it for tonight im tired and im up early tomo byeeeeee

left to do (Posted 28th April 2011)

shoulder guards
leg guards,
one shoe lol

arughhhhh (Posted 10th March 2011)

i dont know how many times ive started this but ive really started today, having done the shin protectors but i need more material if that is even possible it prob dont look liek a shin guard but in a trying lol

make up test (Posted 12th December 2010)

so wen i went to expo i joined in with a make up class and one of the products was star gazer, i was like wow that looks ace so i finally found some and thought id have a go with it :)

Also as you notice Reimi doesnt really have much make up on however she is naturally pretty being a character lol and her eyes are huge so i thought id use the colours of her outfit to make my eyes look a bit brighter, it seems though i may need to buy some brown contacts.

im also a bit gutted i wanted to try this with my pony tail extender but its not appeared :(

oh and no spots yeeey :D
