Final Fantasy IV

Cosplayer: Violet Kestral

Status: Complete

Condition: Retired

7th August 2013: . Marking as complete. The paldrons are half done, and I may get around to finishing them at some point, but I feel in no rush now.

16th July 2013: ECG I found out there were still a couple of places left for the ECG prelims, and in my great wisdom I decided to enter Rosa (since I had considered entering her before). That gives me just over a week to finish. Oh dear.

1st April 2013: Leafing Cosplay progress on my birthday!

And I don't have much else to say =p

16th March 2013: Moar progress Some of these still need sewing and they're all just pinned into place, but you get the idea.
Clearly lots more detailing to go still, but I wanted to see how things we looking so far.

27th February 2013: Capes capes capes! Making a start on the painting on the longest cape.
The flowers are all done now. Need to do the swirly leaves beneath and the bit half way up.

There is still a fair way to go, since I have to do the same for the upper cape and various bits of detailing elsewhere.

26th January 2013: Beading Scavenged some bamboo beads which I chopped in half and sprayed gold.

Found some faceted clear beads which I painted pink with nail varnish.

Scavenged the other beads as well.

And there you go =]

26th January 2013: Crotch shot Did some painting today and it's all swirly and pretty =3

Also bought pretty much everything else I still need for this. I think boots and a bra are the only things left.

2nd January 2013: First cosplay making of the year Raided my mum's stores to find bits for these. Found gold hoops which I sprayed silver and black beads which I sprayed gold =p
But they very much work as earrings =]

Also raided for some beads for the belt thing. Have all but the pink ones, which I assumed I'd have to make (or buy if I'm very lucky in finding some) anyway.
