Information

I have been planning this costume for a few years now and all I have to show for it is a pair of pantaloons. I really think it's time to actually finish it and cosplay Freya.

I've entered the Amecon 2012 Masquerade with this so I'm hoping that it gets done.

*update*

I'm completely redoing the hat, the mask and feet. Parts of the armour is going to get redone aswell.

This shall all be done for Ayacon 2013.

I think your oversized collar works out; it'll look particularly dramatic with Freya's pointy hat. And now I hit the 'watch costume' button. Yup.

Looking great! Especially impressed with the mask work, it makes such a difference and you've got the oversized proportions worked out really well.

Awesome Freya cosplay! I especially love the mask, I've not seen many Freya cosplay's that have done a mask :)

You really make an amazing Freya, I love how you've re-created her face-shape with the mask you've made. I wish I'd got some pictures of this ^^

Amazing! Totally amazing. The mask looks especially great but the whole outfit is brilliant.

Progress Journal

18th July 2013

Done

Everythings pretty much done and the new lance remade, YAY!
I was never happy with the Javelin prop from last year and it feel to bits after a few hours since it was made so quickly.

I was originally going to remake it buuuuuuuuttttt I don't really like remaking things so I decided to make Freya's ultimate weapon for fun.

8th July 2013

Edits and props

So all the edits to Freya have all been done so that's a plus and now I'm working on the prop
Originally was going to remake the Javelin but after making one last year I thought I'd do something a little different and instead started working on the Dragon's Hair.
So far I have the bottom bit made and parts of the lance bit made.
Bit worried about the bottom being too sharp so I'll probably blunt it even more. Added alot of random detail because it was just so plain and bland without it.

7th June 2013

Major edits

Freya's getting some major edits for Ayacon 13.
Hat wings are being remade
Pouldron/grates are being remade
Mask is being remade
Leg details are being remade
Spear is being remade
Velcro is getting added to everything
An underneath shirt is being made
and I'll possibly edit parts of the feet.

testing

Supposed to put this up about a month ago, progress has slowed on this cosplay so I can work on ones for Kita. Decided to try the coat and the trousers on together. I've got boning in the bottom of the arms and the bottom of the coat to fan it out a bit. Not happy with how it's falling at the back so I might make something to go underneath like an underskirt the same colour as the trousers.

Coat start

Started the coat last week but got some pictures today.
Made a huge collar for it, probably too big but oh well, adds to the effect.
Tempted to add wiring into the bottom of the coat and the bottom of the sleeves to give it the fluffed out shape.
