Cheria Barnes - Tales of Graces





So another 'Tales of' game has captured my love....

As most of the cast seem to have bright hair Cherias I think is probably the most suitable given its a touch darker. Her standard costume is very cute, the sleeves will be 'interesting' to make. Also pulled toward Cherias design because it looks like a nice little challenge. Did I say I'd never make a pleated skirt again? I don't think so. XD

..and I'd be tempted to lengthen the skirt just so I dont blind people. XD

Pleates defeated.

Another thing almost checked off my list today! Day of productivity, joy joy.
The skirts been relatively problem free so far, the purple sections more or less complete, I need to make a black underskirt with a possibly layer of netting in between just to give the skirt the extra lift it has on Cheria. Also need to find or make the decorative gold hoop on Cherias belt/skirt. Guess I'll just have to keep my eyes peeled for things of that size and shape.. x3

...So in theory this might work as long as I've got my measurements correct.
If the holes still distort the bodice shape I might try putting a panel of white fabric behind the criss crosses to at least give the illusion there are holes.

Finally made a start orz

So today I actually made a proper start on this costume. Pretty bad considering I put this up as in progress a year ago... welp..
Anyway managed to get a good chunk done. Here's my progress on the bodice, the main challenge I've found is trying to figure out a solution to stop the crisscross cut out pattern from distorting the shape of the bodice too much!

I have a few ideas of how I can go about it... So fingers crossed. I've found lining the bodice to work out pleasantly well, makes for a neater edge for the appliqué patterns.

Nothing to see. :p

Since I have no fabrics at all, I'm starting with the more solid pieces. Basically the only thing that's solid... being the central brooch... looks the most fun to do so....

(I've made a start! Joy. XD)

Will probably make a set of throwing knives, just not sure what type yet. :)
