Freya Crescent
Final Fantasy IX

Cosplayer: BabemRoze

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

17th April 2011: Version 2 Yep I'm thinking of a version too XD This will include:
● New hat includ. Ears
● A Mask (I'll risk suffocating xD)
● Added wire to the tail so it's more upright
● A better frilly bit
● Rat Hands
● Rat feed that look like the leg shape but not in those heels D:
● Better trousers
● Better Sleeve Armour
I dunno when I'd do Version 2 but these are all the things I really want to tweak. I'm even tempted to make the head an actual rat had instead of using my face XD but I wouldn't know where to begin! Anways fun fun :D

4th April 2011: Hat Ears Baaaaaaaaasically I never got the hat ears in the end =[ long story, but hopefully I can get them off Silvera :B when I get them I'll add them on but since I consider her complete that's where she's going ^^ Pics up soon! THE SHOES HURT!!!

28th March 2011: Tail Tail is finished! Fusionrose helped me cut it and she sewed it with her sewing machine, we then spent ages cutting up pieces of black material as substitute for stuffing. Then I put the cat tail at the other end for the wire base - I finished it tonight so that's done :D woo!

26th March 2011: Coat Progress The coat is near completion, Fusionrose made the front panel and I made the frilly bit at the top and have attached it to elastic so I can have it around my neck under the collar. I'm half way through the tail (which fusion also helped with) and so I just need to add the armour to the coat sleeves, add the circles to the feet. I'm waiting for my ears to arrive, made my Silverdestinova so I can finish my hat, then she's done :D eeee

23rd March 2011: Armour and leg progress I've painted the legs circles and sleeve armour so just waiting to dirty, then imma put some silver model paint on the armour to make it shiny and then I'll be attaching to the socks and sleeves =]

13th March 2011: Feet Completed! plus other stuff I've painted the shoes and they're now being left to dry I'm pretty pleased the stitching is mainly covered :D For the socks/shoes I've just got to do those circles on her legs and they're completely done. My trousers arrived but they were a size 14 not 16 -.- so I've cut off the bottom and used some of that material to make them bigger...now they're too big *headdesk* but I can always stitch them again or safety pin them :D...I'm having trouble finding my red thread to sew the sleeves a bit more and to sew the rope *growls* I'm going on a massive man hunt for it in a mo >.<

7th March 2011: Sleeves My mum was a star and worked out how to put the eyelets on and so she's added them to the sleeves. Then I've got to do a bit of sewing on the sleeves and then I'll be adding the rope. Then the coat is more or less finished apart from the sleeve armour which I'll start soon (hopefully). I need to work out if I'm going to do the straps

7th March 2011: Feet 90% Complete The feet are almost complete, I've made the shape, sewed them on and I've just got to paint them and let them dry :D The stitching is awful but hopefully they look better once the paint blends everything in. Once I've done the leg decoration the socks are complete and that can be put to one side x

3rd March 2011: Feet Progress So I've sewn two strips of foam along the top and bottom and using more strips I made the toes. I know she has 4 toes but they won't fit on so she can have three :D I'm hoping they're small enough that I can walk easily and they won't break =[ I've gotta sew on the middle toe, paint them and then do the other foot :D

2nd March 2011: Tail Well it seems I have a little bit of money left over this month (dunno how o.O) I'm gonna buy some material, wire and stuffing. I'll make the shape of the tail with the material, fold it inside out and then put the wire in with the stuffing. Hopefully it won't be too expensive D: I don't think it should be but I wanna see if I can get some reeeeeeeally thin wire (like for puppets) to make the tail hang correctly so it's attached to my coat D: Gah, I hope this will go well I'm running out of time T_T

27th February 2011: Whiskers I don't want to wear a mask to make her rat face since I have trouble breathing with things over my nose and mouth >_< damn sinus problems. So I've decided to try and make my real face look rat like. I'm not gonna wear horrible rat teeth or anything. But I'll use make up to give my face a "furry" look, I'll try and whiten my eyebrows a bit and I've bought these whiskers (You can't see that well in the pic) to stick on my face with eyelash glue. I hope it's not windy coz I'll be terrified about losing them xD

27th February 2011: Front Panel Progress The front panel is being made by Fusionrose as she has loads of scrap material and said she could do it for me =D I was hoping to help but I dunno when I can visit her so she started it for me =D I'm actually in love with it so far. It's the true centerpiece :D and I can&'t wait to see it finished! x (also colours are a little different to the picture XD)

26th February 2011: Legs/Feet For the Leg's I've got thigh high brown socks. I've put them over my shoes and although the heel is obviously still visible it's meant to create the illusion of rat feet. I've got to figure out the best way to add the feet since they must be sturdy for me to walk on. And I want them to look like hers @_@ it's hard to find a good idea >_<

26th February 2011: Spear Progress 3 Right then! Yesterday I Papier Mache'd it with newspaper and kitchen roll. It's now really sturdy and ready for painting. It is dry but I've got a cold atm and can't be bother to get out of bed haha
Sorry for uploaded the same sort of pictures due to the 12 pics per costume I've put them all together so there's more space. The same with the journals. I deleted the old ones and reuploaded them but this time with pictures :) Sorry for the spammage x_x

25th February 2011: Trousers I won these trousers off ebay =D I'm gonna cut them and use the left over material to put them inside the sleeves as well and wrap some around the tail. These are the closest colour I got compared to the ref :D I'm kinda proud! Eep!

25th February 2011: Spear Progress 2 I've covered both sides of cardboard with the Pipe Insulation foam and they're very thick and sturdy. Tomorrow (my back's hurting too much to do it tonight) I'll be coating them in a couple of layers of papier mache so there's a more even coat so I can paint. Once that's dry I'll paint the pole the darker colours (as seen in the ref pic) and then paint the points. After the top's finished I'll do the bottom which (hopefully) should be a LOT easier XD This is a lot of work but I feel so accomplished :D

24th February 2011: Spear Progress I've spray painted my wooden pole gold. And using cardboard I've cut out the shapes of the pointed bits. I've now used pipe insulation foam and cut out chunks for the notches and painted them silver. It doesn't make much a difference to the colour but it gives them a nice shine. I'm waiting for them to dry and then I'll be placing them on pole and then using the hot glue gun I'll stick them and the cardboard on. Then I'll probably either add more foam or papier mache so it's thicker. Then paaaint =D

22nd February 2011: Wig Arrived! But the problem is the hat can barely fit on my head with it on. So I need to find a way to edit the foam base so it can slide on easily and to the position I need it to. It'll be hard because I've already sewn some of the red material on. I'm sure I'll find a way :}

2nd February 2011: Shoes Arrived! EEP! They arrived this morning :D I'm uber happy coz now I can have SilveraDestinova's help with editing them. They're soooo tall X_X the heel is 5.5" tall O_o and when I wear them I worked out I'm about 5'11.5" tall @_@ I was like gawd. So I'm going to be wearing them for an hour everyday and going out in them leading up to Kitacon so I'm used to walking in them AND they don't hurt my feet XD looking at them now the thought of walking in them all day at Kitacon scares me :{

22nd December 2010: Hat I was really bored today and thought I should work on this costume. Since it's probably the biggest cosplay project I've done I want to know I won't run out of time. I found some foam tubes and cut them up. I was gonna use an old cap and cardboard but it sooo didn't go according to plan. So I decided to make the frame myself. I hope it holds O_O I have a hot glue gun and red material on the way and my friend had an idea for the big ears made from rubber mats in a 99p shop ^^

aha! Very nice fit and detailing on the coat-- the rope on the sleeves looks particularly effective. Respect for keeping your balance in the 'dance for Cleyra' photograph, looks tricky.
