Tira (P2 ) - Soul Calibur 4




Worn at Manchester MCM Expo 2011 & Kitacon 2012

My second costume that I have completely made from scratch, I love Tira and I love this costume :) I'm proud of it though it is far from perfect. The shoes, hat, and sleeves were wonky, and everything is a bit messy with this costume but I think it works with Tira's personality anyway lol.

2 days to go

And again I have left most of it until last minute lol. I have spent hours this week working on this damn thing, im about 90% done? I was meant to upload pictures of each part of the costume when it was finished but ive only just completed most of it, here is a photo of the explosion of Tira cosplay parts on my bed haha.
I basically made this all months ago, just left it uncompleted until today lol. I still have the hat and small collar to finish, then add the metal plate things to the skirt and boots.
A lot of this is rushed, im not happy with it >.< plus, my sewing machine broke a couple of days ago and a lot of the cosplay is glued, or hand sewed, which im shit at D8 I do like my ring blade though :) its the only part im pleased with, thanks to my Dad for helping me make it <3 (he basically did it all lol)

Bits and Pieces

Here are some parts of the jewellery, like the silver charm and spikes for her tail thing, and some skulls for the collar and gold bits for the jester hat (All made with wire, clay, paint and glue). They are kind of messy but I like them. Also shows the ribbon I've got for the skirt and stocking trim, I will paint part of it darker as Tira seems to have 2 tones of pink ribbon on her outfit. Shoes and stockings nearly done, will post progess this week maybe. This costume is taking ages and I only have a couple of weeks until expo (is lazy) >.<

Gauntlet Progress

These have taken a long time, but thats because I started them a long time ago and only work on them for like an hour a week or something lol. The picture shows 1. After I bent the foam into shape, 2. The raised design has been added and 3. The paint job is finished and most parts are glued to the gloves. All I need to do is add the green staps and the purple ribbon (which I lost so have to buy more T_T) and add a few thick pink stitches to the underside of the glove.

slowly coming along

Made a start on the boots (pain in the ass), the charm and spikes for the tail thing, and styling the wig. The gauntlets are nearly finished, just waiting for some leather gloves to arrive in the post then I can glue it all together. The skulls for the hat and collar I am going to make out of clay, as I can't seem to find any small plastic ones to buy from anywhere D: Overall, I have so much to do on this costume as it has lots of little details, I hope I can pull it off. (oh, and heres the picture I was meant to upload to my last journal entry >.<)

Made a start

Basically started this a while ago but stopped to work on my May expo cosplays, but now this is my priority costume as it needs to be completed in 2 months for the first Manchester expo. I drew out all of the different components of the costume and wrote down how I was going to make them and what material to use etc, will start doing this before any costume I make as its proving to be really useful lol.
I have the base of the hat complete, just need to glue it all together, stuff it, and add the details. The gloves/gauntlet/claw things are in progress as well, made with foam + muslin, just need to be painted after the many coats of glue I have spammed them with haha. Will paint them today and make a start on the shoes, pictures of the hat/gloves should be up by next week hopefully :)
