Freya Crescent - Final Fantasy IX


London MCM Expo October 2011

Shortlisted in cosplay corner


"Despair - To be forgotten is worse than death........"

Very true indeed....

-I made this outfit and spear for the October 2011 MCM London Expo (FRIDAY AND SATURDAY)

-I was part of the FF Roundup on the SATURDAY of October 2011 MCM London Expo.

I loved having photos with Beatrix (SlimDefinition) as well as everyone in the FF Roundup!

Freya Crescent is a playable character from Final Fantasy IX. She is Burmecian, a race of Dragon Knights who live in two cities, Burmecia and Cleyra. Her face is often covered up by hair, and she seems to suffer from a deep pain in her hear. She hails from Burmecia, but left several years prior to the game in search of her lost love, Sir Fratley..... Zidane meets her in Lindblum just before the Festival of the Hunt.

I truly adore Freya, she is a deep and meaningful character as well as a skilled and powerful fighter, I have always loved the design of a red mage but Freya Crescent the Dragon Knight rocks. I want to make this for my love her the character and of FFIX, I'm more than happy to have pictures with other cosplayers who share the same adoration ^_^

Ultimately I want to get a photo with me standing on a very small pillar, a pose of the famous 'Jump' technique, lets see which photographer is up to the challenge.....

Perfect choice on the wig id say! Cant wait to see more progress i love Freyas design

Raye-chan posted on 2 February, 2011 - 23:38
@FairyPorchQueen - I agree! It's a great find ^_^ - need to buy soon... The hardest part at the moment is searching for the right material for the coat!

Freyarule posted on 3 February, 2011 - 08:24
Yay another Freya cosplayer! :3 can't wait to see this!

Raye-chan posted on 5 February, 2011 - 11:34
Yeah i really love Freya Crescent :) I finally got my own copy of the game today! Yay! :) Have not played this since it was released when i borrowed my brothers copy :)

Freyarule posted on 19 February, 2011 - 11:28
I'm going to take a guess that you got your refs from Realm of Eternal Rain? 8D

Raye-chan posted on 19 February, 2011 - 11:38
@Freyarule - Correct! ^_^ I think there should be more love for Freya Cresent though - need more pictures! I have started putting together a pattern for a dress now and tweek it into a raincoat but its hard to do detailing when there is limited artwork out there!

Freyarule posted on 19 February, 2011 - 11:52
Lol! I've been a member of that site for aaaages, it's what helped fuel my love for Freya :) Looking forward to progress! One day I'll start this too, probably after I graduate from uni though lol!

Raye-chan posted on 21 February, 2011 - 18:14
@Freyarule - I agree! I am obsessed too ^_^ I even got a new copy of the game to re-play all over again! I know what you mean! I just had to make Freya for distant worlds - I am wearing this for October MCM London Expo!

Raye-chan posted on 5 March, 2011 - 11:38

Sephirayne posted on 5 March, 2011 - 11:57

Progress is looking amazing! Keep up the good work x.

birds-hate-flying posted on 20 September, 2011 - 19:26
ooh, this costume looks promising and I'm going to watch the progress with interest. The coat material was a great choice: it looks right on that ambiguous not-quite-pink-not-quite-red shade of the game graphics, and raincoat material seems perfect for Burmecian Freya. The spear is also looking superfabulous. All the best with this! tldr: iz awesome, more plz.

Raye-chan posted on 27 September, 2011 - 13:37
@SD aka Mel - Thank you! I'm super excited doing the detail on this now ^^ @FusionRose - Aww I will do! Lots of bits to get on with now! @birds-hate-flying - Glad you like the material too ;) I spent so long looking for the perfect fabric and this defo fits her! Tehe - more progress to come on a daily basis as I'm doing the detailing now! Wuuu!

CrystalNeko posted on 27 September, 2011 - 14:52
I really adore your fabric choice for the coat. It has the right amount of shine to it. It looks like it fits perfectly too! I can see you being an amazing Freya!

Raye-chan posted on 27 September, 2011 - 17:17
@CrystalNeko - Aw thank you so much ^_^ I spent ages looking for fabric, officially I have been working on this since January! XD The coat is 100% made on my frame and I have interfacing in the collor, sleeves and base to add the flair that Freya has! I will try to be the best Freya Crescent I can :3 x

DefineImagineMJ posted on 27 September, 2011 - 20:23
Oh yes! That fabric for the scarf we looked at really WAS the right colour!

Manticore Arts posted on 29 September, 2011 - 23:59

Raye-chan posted on 30 September, 2011 - 13:48

26th October 2011


I managed to finish the painting and sewing last night so I am ready for expo!!!!

25th October 2011

90% There!

Almost there! REALLY NEED TO FINISH TONIGHT! Just the poppers to attach on the coat and paint the flag emblem!

23rd October 2011


The hat was made three times, first make a code shape, then a front facer which fits around the entire head. This attaches to the cone. The front is lined and has interfacing. The cone is stuffed slightly to get the bend. Then I cut out foam bat wings, painted silver and added to the hat by sewing. The eyes are sticky black foam.

23rd October 2011

Almost there...

Loads of progress done over this weekend :) the hat is made the spear is pretty much done. Just need to finish painting some pieces including the bat wings and attach everything including my straps. :) watch this space!

22nd October 2011

Finished Spearhead

Finally finished the spearhead!!!

22nd October 2011


Made by dying hand made feet and claws sewing to brown socks overlapping fabric plimpsoles and painting the claws white :) they are stuffed too!

19th October 2011

Bits and bobs

I am very proud of my coat ^_^ I have lots of detail bits to get done and I have not even had time for a make up test yet! *rushes* Putting my fabric material image here as lots more pics expected soon!

30th September 2011

Hat progress

Hat progress :) interfacing to be inserted into the front frame. Main hat to be stuffed and strapped on!

30th September 2011

Flag fabric

This is the fabric i decided on for the front flag piece :) just need to put it all together through the machine and add interfacing to the centre!

27th September 2011

Its all about the detail :)

Coat detail pieces in progress, lengthy process but well worth it! Shiny buttons ;3 The neck scarf will need shortening! You can see the bits and pieces in progress here!

19th September 2011

More purchasing XD

I have now go my fabric for the scarf and the front emblem drape as well as gold fabric paint and red rope for the cuffs - loads more progress pictures to follow once the spear head is finished. Today I got a end piece for the spear as well as some red paint and more glue and hot glue sticks (as I used up my supplies last night!)

18th September 2011

Spearhead progress stage 3

So this evening I have put papermache over the top, I'll need to use some grout to tidy some edges, then sand it, at that point its ready for painting!

18th September 2011

Spearhead progress stage 2

After creating the base i duck taped all over the surface, next is the papermache... which i have also done this weekend

16th September 2011

Coat base complete!

The coat base..... is finally finished! OMG that feels good XD Now I have this weekend to get loads of the spear done, I am fabric shopping tomorrow for the bits and peices to add to the coat too! I finally feel like I am making great progress, perhaps a make up test is well earned tomorrow......

12th September 2011

Weapons at the ready...

I've started to spearhead now which is going well :) building it up with card, corrugated card then foam, paper mache etc. Also the coat is 90% complete just the zip to add. I need to get to work on all the other bits once thats done!

28th August 2011

Coat coming together nicely

Worked on the coat this weekend, re-cutting the collar as its not big enough, I am also starting the detail peices such as the front scarf as I have enough interfacing, also I am working out how to do the hat and toes! My mum has been so amazing showing me what I need to do with this, I hope one day I can be as good a dressmaker as her.

16th August 2011

Purchases + stuff

Okay so I need to buy more mustard leggings to do the detail and the undersleeves, I also need another pair of brown ones just in case. I also need to get down and work on my spear, scarfs and finish that coat!

15th August 2011

Legs and pantaloons

The legs consists of brown and mustard leggings and brown socks. I just need to tweak the knees and add silver circles to the sides. I'm also wearing canvas plimpsoles which I can sew the toes into once I've started those :)

13th August 2011

Show some legs! XD

Now I'm working on the legs, I have brown and mustard leggings and brown Wellington boot socks. I just need to tweak the knees, add circles to the sides then get to work on the feet. I'm wearing canvas plimpsoles under the socks which I can sew the toes into :3

12th August 2011

Coat progress pictures!

As promised I have uploaded some pictures of the coat progress now ^_^

11th August 2011

Coat made up!

I've now put the coat together apart from one sleeve. I think a hoop might be needed for the base. Pictures to follow!

18th July 2011

Coat still taking alot of time......

I am still working on the coat at the moment, the sleeves are taking time and the skirt piece needs adding to the bodice

15th June 2011

Spear progress to commence soon

I just need to get a pole as I have had my corrugated card delivered today ^^

15th June 2011

Coat progress! Cut cut cut....

The cutting is almost done XD *dances* I cut out all of the lining last night for the coat, so I just need to buy some extra interfacing - approx 2 and 1/2 metres now (due to needing some for the hat, sleeves and skirt). I feel like I have been cutting forever, 5 metres of material, 5 metres of lining and what will be 5 metres of interfacing >_< I am hoping this Friday I can look at putting the bits together, however to put the final coat together everything needs to be machine sewed and therefore I have to get the last parts of interfacing cut out ready..... Other than that I feel like a make up test as a break! XD

12th June 2011

Coat progress

Had a very productive day yesterday, all my interfacing has been cut out but I have run out of it so I need approx 2 metres more >_< I am going to attempt cutting out all of my lining tonight (there is approx 5-6 metres of material for this coat and hat!) I have also now bought some corrugated card so I can start work on my spear, in the meantime I need to find an adjustable pole....

11th June 2011


Going to work on the coat today :) Hopefully will get a fair bit done over the weekend!

12th May 2011

Coat still in progress

I have my lining and interfacing now, so I need to get the coat together. I am also going to start on the hat this weekend!

4th May 2011

More bits in progress

I have just purchased some dark brown leggings for under £5 and I will be getting my interfacing and lining for the coat this weekend ^^ Need to look into starting the staff soon....

27th April 2011

Coat in progress

I have cut the main fabric now, I just need to get some interfacing and lining for the sleeves, colar and bottom of the coat ^^

Template of coat complete

Thanks to the assistance of my mum i have now finished the template for the coat (using an old lilac sheet). I used two patterns, one a jacket pattern and two a tudor dress pattern (big puffy skirt which will be the stick out bottom of the coat). So I'm now ready to cut the real fabric. I still need some lining for the sleeves and bottom of the coat which i will use interfacing on to stick out. The collar will be made separate as will the hat :) let me know what you think!

I have in the last couple of days been working on Freya's nose, lots of face gluing involved with paper mace, duck tape etc etc this will no doubt take me a while - Freya will be made for October 2011 ^^

Currently working on the pattern for the raincoat using an old bed sheet must upload a picture soon of my progress. Other than that I have been planning how to make the feet and I want to get started on the spear head but I need a pole first. Lots to do!

More purchases

I now have my dress makers pattern based on a stick out dress which I can adapt to make the coat ^_^ I have been looking for material's and have asked for some samples, I really want to try and make this with waterproof material. Also I now have some grey facepaint which I can use for my face where I won't have the 'nose mask' showing - such as the neck etc

Looking for wigs, whilst looking very close at the game graphics Freya Crescent has white hair with a grey tint (see in game images and CGI) only on the bright concept art does she appear to have white hair. So I'm going for silver ;)
