Information

Most Grandia cosplayers in one place ever! It was so much fun being a group from such a bright and happy game.

I Love the sleeves and I got to have a fully functional hobo bag ^-^
After much searching I finally found a photo where I'm not hidden behind a fringe. I could see perfectly, so I was a bit suprised it always looks in the way. On close inspection I think I cut too much hair into the fringe.

Adventurers don't have time for fancy materials, so everything is cotton or natural looking fibres with rough weaves. I used a thick fleece/felt-type fabric for the belt and covered it in the orange and ribbon details. The felt is really versatile; super bendy, easy to cut, sews end to end with itself and is really strong. I'll be using this so much more in future.

I made stencils for the sleve, bootcuff, headpiece and bag designs and then used spraypaint for a really neat look and crisp lines.
The hipbag had wadding and boning inside to keep the shape and I used rivets all around the outside and added ribboning as I was going for a mix of the in game and concept artwork images.
The headpieces and whip handle were all made of sprayed funky foam with a curtain braid for the whip line and some small metal details glued on.
For the necklace I ended up using a mirror tile coated in glass paint and hung on invisible plastic thread and all the beads were pearl-effect plastic which makes a really great effect with one coat of red nailvarnish (the pearling shows through like a tint).

Finally a costume I wasn't pinned into, I managed to get all my poppers in place and secure well before the Con!

Warning: When not trying to comple a dissertation, leave time to try on headpieces before the con weekend...I never measured the head triangles and they are far bigger than I wanted, door hazzard! XD
