Celsius (Summon) - Tales of Symphonia


AniMedia East - Cosplay Picnic - Spring 2011

Featured in MyM Magazine Issue 4 page 45


Celsius is the Summon Spirit of Ice and appears in Tales of Symphonia. I loved the game and loved her attitude!

Worn at our AniMedia East - Cosplay Picnic - Chapelfield Gardens, Norwich, UK, April 2011

I made the costume from scratch, there is a base body suit dyed blue and I hand drew the markings. The skirt was a simple wrap round, the halter top was hand made, the ribbon detail was hand templated and the cuffs are made out of felt (I plan to re-do the cuffs another day as I would them them more detailed, the costume was rushed for a picnic!)

Celsius, the Disciple of Everlasting Ice, appears as a short-haired, pale woman. Appearing in the Temple of Ice, she is the Summon Spirit of Ice. A proud being, she challenges the party with her wolf Fenrir at her side. The flower capable of freezing anything it touches, the Celsius' Tear, is named after her. She herself can be summoned through the arte Summon: Ice.

In battle, Celsius fights using a martial-arts based style. She will use Swallow Dance and Beast, as well as cast ice-themed spells such as Freeze Lancer and Ice Tornado. Celsius can also use 'Ice Spear', where she slams her fist into the ground and causes icicles to erupt around her.

Looking good, Tales of Symphonia is probably my favourite JRPG along with Tales of Phantasia =D

Raye-chan posted on 17 January, 2011 - 09:24
@LemonPanda ^_^ thanks, i could not decide whether to make the skirt with one or two splits >_< I like the idea of two but i also want to get the costume accurate - I think i need to dig up some more concept art if i can find it!

I finally finished this cosplay (yaaaaaayyy!) It took ages but I think the finished article is pretty impressive ^^ I may re-do Celsius with more markings on the gold pieces at future events :)

15th April 2011

Final hurdle

Almost finished, skirt is done, i need to finish the top, belt and final markings tonight! ^_^ Hopefully I will have it done ready to wear tomorrow!

13th April 2011

Lots and lots done but still lots to do..

Okay so I have a few things left to do... Finish skirt, stitch remaining velcro and sew button and button hole - attach ribon Top - sew all together with newly purchased lining, add choker and edges Markings on bodysuit - still all to do Bracelets are done now and the choker is getting there.. Will I finish before this Saturday??? We shall see..........

28th March 2011

Skirt and top

The skirt is now 80% complete and the top is now in progress :) the skirt has been made to wrap round and has been darted to fit my curves :) I'm very pleased with it so far all done today by myself (yay!) and the hemming is so straight!

14th March 2011

Ribbon and other progress

I have almost finished the detail on the ribbon and the top and skirt are ready to sew. I have some new leggings to dye and i have started the cuffs :)

6th March 2011

Working on the skin tone

At the moment i am getting the body suit, tights, and gloves dyed. There will be the skin for Celsius as she is a light China blue colour. Once it is all dry i will do the markings :) i also need to do a face paint and make up test with the wig and alice band so lots more pictures to follow!

2nd March 2011

Bit by Bit

I am still working on the ribbon - I need to get down and do alot of sewing this coming weekend and also dying!

20th February 2011

Productive weekend

As i could not get my skirt to dye i have now purchased some dark blue material to make the skirt from scratch. The material is the perfect colour and has a great texture which should fall nicely. All i need to do is make it up like a wrap around skirt then make the leg slit on the left side. I also now have everything to dye with the bodysuit (which counts as the skin) so lots of work to do!

19th February 2011


My gloves arrived today so I can finally get to dying all the bits I need light blue (body suit, tights, gloves). Then I can paint on the dark blue markings!

17th February 2011


I got some light blue ribbon today so I can start work on the detail with dark blue fabric paint :) I just need to make a cardboard version of template i made then I'm ready to start work on it! This ribbon goes onto the front of the skirt.

16th February 2011

slow progress >_<

Going to buy some material to make a skirt now as the other will not dye >_< Also i got my gloves today, so once they arrive i can get dying the bodysuit stuff!

2nd February 2011

Annoying skirt..

The dye didn't work, I think its the material (which has no label!) so I will be buying some material and making the skirt from scratch (like I always end up doing >_<) Had an attempt with some light blue felt to make the long ribbon detail on the skirt, but I think I will be happier if I get some long material rather than sewing each piece together! Oh and I need to sort out some gloves before I can dye the bodysuit and tights...

30th January 2011

Loads of progress ^^

Okay so lots of progress to report! Wig - arrived this weekend - very happy with it ^^ pictures now uploaded all prices are on my shopping list Bodysuit - Also arrived this week, now tried on - fits like a glove! So i need to dye it a china blue and do the markings Tights - Got this weekend - need to dye a china blue and do markings Skirt - Still need to dye blue, cut left slit and add detail Boots - All ready to wear, may add some loop detail Halter top - In progress, i now have my own sewing machine and bought my material this weekend, i already have a halter pattern to work with (from making Fina - Skies of Arcadia) and i will then need to add gold detail All other areas are still to do (lots on my to do list to complete!)

29th January 2011

Wig arrives!

The amazing wig arrived today so i have added a picture from my phone please excuse lack of makeup heh :) will get more pics uploaded with make up and wig plus body suit!

23rd January 2011


My bodysuit arrived and fits really well ^_^ I will have to dye it as well as a pair of tights. I also need to work out if I can dye my skirt as if I can't then I will have to find something else to work with! My wig is on its way so as soon as that arrives I will test the face paint with it ^_^

20th January 2011

Halter tops

Been looking everywhere and can't seem to find a high neck backless white halter top - Think I will have to make! Should be working on the skirt this Sunday!

19th January 2011

Wig, bodysuit

I have now ordered my wig and body suit! ^_^

19th January 2011


Go my brand new boots now! They only cost £5 ;) Also progress on the skirt is on hold until Sunday to re-try the dye - if it doesn't work i will need to sort out a new skirt

15th January 2011

Skirt progress

I have today found the perfect base for a skirt! Just need to dye it, cut slits then add detail! Still its a good start XD Horray for charity shops! Pictures to follow once i have made a bit more progress with it :)

12th January 2011

Body painting

Had a play with the blue and silver body paint i think the light blue looks the best :)

12th January 2011
