Serina - Magna Carta


AmeCon 2007




I decided a long, long time ago I wanted a challenging costume so I stupidly thought this was somewhat achievable. I was wrong. At the time I had no idea what I was doing so although I somehow managed to make a fairly good skirt the top just failed. I did try again a few times after that but I never finished in time, until Amecon when I was determined to get the stupid thing finished!

I'm not completely happy with it but it's done and I'm never going to do anything else to it and I plan to never wear it again because it is SO unvomfortable.

You make a great Serina and the wig looks so natural on you! The gradient dying on the fabric looks fantastic! How did you do it?

I wouldn't have left the room if I didn't have it on XD With the skirt, I just dipped it in the dye and hung it upside down. I think. It was a while ago XD The sleeves were not fun since my first attempt last year stayed purple no matter how many times I put it in the black dye. So I had to paint it on with fabric paint ^^; Which isn't great because the sleeves are stiff and if it rains it will probably be the end of my costume :P I've been lucky so far. Thanks both of you :D But way better than you, Mark? Sorry, what!? Don't think so! :P

I love this costume! Ever since you first painted the skirt, that's been my favourite bit - it's so pretty and perfect! You did a great job with the gradients, and that detail at the back too. Very much awesome.

You look beautiful!! Serina has such a lovely dress!!! <3 Come to the October MCM! I'll even wear my Reith costume! <333

Thank you! :D Unfortunately because it's quite uncomfortable, various things would need to be remade and I've already worn it a few times I don't think I'll be wearing it again ^^; Your Reith was absolutely amazing, though! I was going to get a photo but I didn't have my camera when I saw you.
