Freya Crescent (Modernised version) - Final Fantasy IX



Photos

 


Information

This was worn on the Sunday masquerade ^^ My first masquerade...I wonder if I did alright....*worryworryworry*

My inspiration towards this costume is that I wanted to express the personality of Freya. So as well as being modernised (you could even say this is a younger Freya design) there are elements that reflect on the idea of her sole purpose of looking for Sir Fratley. So on the shorts, there are some frays happening on the edges, especially in the material, but this is intentional as it shows the fraying of her roots and whatnot....yeah it's hard to explain >.>

This is looking great so far and I love your design! (Freya seems to be getting cosplay love which I'm so glad about! I'll be cosplaying her classic version at FuyuCon hopefully). Well done, I can't wait to see the finished costume! ^__^

Neat work on the T-shirt pattern, clever girl ;) I'm so pleased you now have a sewing machine! Sometimes things still don't go right with them, so don't throw it out the window when you are tempted - just remember your friends warned you ther'd be days like this ^-^ The wig looks cute. ^^

This is a great idea, and it's turned out really well. I love the way you put the shield as a print on a t-shirt.

Freyarule posted on 25 February, 2010 - 08:19
Aww thanks! I'm not sure when I'll be bringing this variant out again :) possibly when I need a back-up costume for an event. She won't be retired just yet though :D

DOOOOOOOOOOOONE

Finally! I have finished!!! 8DDDD

I'm so happy, and it looks so pretty!
Putting the whole costume on has taught me a few things.
1 - white body paint is annoying. I have decided to do only my face. ^^;
2 - wood varnish works well on spearheads xD (it was the only varnish we had on short notice)

Anyway, I'll look forward to seeing you all at Expo! TOODLES!

Freya is go go!

OK! So I now have started the waistcoat!!! *OMGSHEACTUALLYSTARTEDITGASPSHOCK*

It look so cool! I sewn the ribbon onto the edges I needed it, it look reaaaally awesome!
Oh, and I got the skirt done as well. The belt, my Nan surprised me with. Yes, she actually embroidered all those sequins!!!! O_O I admire her patience and goodwill to make me that.
I also made the ears (they look so cute hehehe) and the tail, which also looks awesome.

Hehe, I'm just giving off positive vibes about this so far 8D

New design

Well, the new design is up. Looks better, doesn't it? ^^
Going to make a trip to Hobbycraft soon, to get supplies. Whoop!

19th April 2009

AARGH

I can't believe I haven't done anything else yet!!! ;A;
Well, I've sketched out a revised version of the costume. Should be putting it up soon.
The problem currently is if I don't make 90% of the outfit (as in handmade) it might not be allowed into the masquerade. So, I've added a lot more handmade stuff, and have changed some bits on the jeans....I hope it gets in. I'm not too bothered about my Team Aqua not getting in, since that was just part of the Pokemon group for fun (ok, so it'd be really sad but I'd still be with the group for most of the day)...

Sorry for the panicrant =< now I need to convince my mother to hurry up and help me with this waistcoat Dx

Finsihed t shirt!

Finished the t-shirt transfer!! It looks awesome on the top. I was going to chop off the sleeves of the top, but my mum wouldn't let me T-T (she wants me to wear it as a casual top sometimes 9w9)
But that's one thing done :D and my sewing machine FINALLY CAME WHOOP! Now I can get to work with the waistcoat! *boogies*

28th February 2009
