17th February 2010: [17/02/2010] Everything is finally complete on this cosplay! About time too... XD Really excited to wear the updated version this weekend with my FFIX group <3
1st January 2010: [31/12/2010] I completely reamade my hat today! Here's a comparison shot of the two - the new one on the left. It doesn't look much different, however I've finally managed to find a way of closing up the hole on the top (it annoyed me so much...). The major changes for my new hat is that it's completely covered in red material, rather than just being made of foam. This weighs it down a little bit and there's also some wire in the ears to add weight as one of the major problems of my last hat was that I didn't even notice it falling off! Some parts of the hat are bigger too (e.g. the front mask part) There's just one thing left to do on this cosplay then the entire thing will be complete <3
2nd August 2009: [02/05/2009] I've finally sorted out the leather harness for this cosplay! The third strip sits underneath the crest, but it's out here just for the purpose of a progress shot. :)
20th June 2009: [20/06/2009] I'm finally getting around to making improvements on this cosplay! Originally I left out the leather harness so I bought the material for that today. I'm hoping to get this done in time for a summer photoshoot, then my Freya cosplay will finally be 100% complete! :)
10th September 2008: [10/09/2008] After my Grandad heard that I'd run out of money for paint, he gave me £20 so that my spear would be finished in time for Midlands. So kind! Here's the finished result :)
10th September 2008: [06/09/2008] I procrastinated so badly with this... There's still quite a lot that needs doing, I know that the spear definitely won't be painted in time for Midlands. I don't really have the money to buy the paint in the first place, so Cat and I are skipping masquerade entry this time round and entering when our costumes are the best they can be.
I've finally got a photo of the updated coat now. Cat did a lot for me because I got stuck, and it looks awesomeeeeee. My sister's been making me a lot of stuff as well, so I owe her quite a lot of props in future... xD

I'm stealing your hat. Ears are TOO CUTE.
Anonymous - 16th February 2008
Freya is amazzzing :D I'm such a fan of this kind of strong woman character, but everytime I dress womanly people think I'm a drag queen LOL so I stick to guys cosplay ;3 I wanna see your Freya!!
Ichigo-Chan - 18th February 2008
I love the hat (I don't blame Crazedteensie for wanting to steal it lol) and as Amine Angel said, your making great progress with the costume so far and it's going to look awesome.
Can't wait for our FFIX group in May (hopefully I can finish my Garnet dress in time)
GunstarVixen - 10th April 2008
Taking it out of the pack might not be such a bad idea, that way you can brush it, and do all those other really important things we all say we'll do, when in fact it's a great excuse to take it out and prance round the house in you latest wig!
(Oh and take piccies for CI!) Bring on the FFIX!!!
CrystalNeko - 26th May 2008
Aww, thanks so much for the lovely comment! ^o^
And yeah I really hope we get those Freya and Garnet photos, that'd so rock! x3

Emzone - 3rd October 2008
Yus we must!
That would be epic =D
Freyarule - 4th November 2008
Just realised, you're Mungojerrie on the ROER board, aren't you! I thought I recognised you xD
Emzone - 25th November 2008
Hey Freya are you going to London Expo May 09 ?
Mungojerrie - 25th November 2008
Not that I know of =( There's a [very] slim chance, but it's not looking likely at the moment.
Anonymous - 10th March 2009
Did you bring this Freya cosplay to Birkenhead Recon? XD I think I remember see you there lol
Mungojerrie - 11th March 2009
I did indeed! Some of the photos here were taken in Birkenhead Waterstones. XD
Anonymous - 16th March 2009
Ehehe, I knew it! XD Your cosplay was awesome!
I was Dorothy there, but no one recognised who I was. Aahaha. Looked more like a maid then anyone.
Oh, that was you! XD I knew of Dorothy, but I was a little hesitant about going up to you, seeing as the only thing I would have been able to say was "I know you're Dorothy, but I have no idea what The Big O is about" Haha. It was a great cosplay though, you looked just like her!
Lil-Samuu - 17th April 2009
This is a really good costume. :) The hat, in particular, is great. ^_^
MikeJenks - 13th May 2009
Woah! That's amazing!! :O
Hannah-Kiwii - 18th June 2009
Fantastic costume, you've done a really good job of this
Well done =D
Anonymous - 12th July 2009
freya is one of my favs from FFIX... nice job on this!!!
letmelive - 19th September 2009
Awesome! You look just like her, are sure you aren't her?
Freyarule - 17th February 2010
yays! The hat looks so good :D well done!
Mungojerrie - 17th February 2010
Thank youuuu <3 I will have some decent photos of the entire finished thing this weekend :D
Freyarule - 18th February 2010
yaays! I can't wait!
I really must think about starting my own Freya costume, but I'm so scared that I'm not good enough and I don't do it justice :(
Mungojerrie - 18th February 2010
Awww Mel, don't doubt yourself! I thought I couldn't do Freya at all when I first started her costume! Your cosplays are coming along brilliantly recently so I'd say just go for it! :) Throw yourself in at the deep end and go with trial and error (that's what I did haha... I had such simple cosplays before I finished started Freya) - you can't know whether you'll be able to make it until you try ;)
I have faith in you, my buddy Freya cosplayer! :D
Anonymous - 19th February 2010
can't ait to seeya there
CrystalNeko - 21st February 2010
FFIX GRUOP WAS EPIC <333333
WELL DONE HOLLEH 8D
Mungojerrie - 21st February 2010
Thank you so much Fi!! 8D
Freyarule - 21st February 2010
nyaaaagh you has given me hope >w< I was waiting for an event to do it for, but I think I might just do it anyway and then it's done :) *huggle*
Mungojerrie - 6th December 2010
Aww thank you very much :)
cowiee - 6th March 2011
This is amazing!
I love it!
Raye-chan - 21st July 2011
Wuuu! Cool Freya :D I'm currently making her for London MCM Expo in October 2011 ^^
birds-hate-flying - 3rd November 2011
Your baggy pants are epic. They look comfy! Hopefully this won't come off as sounding strange but I like how even though you're not wearing a mask your face reads as right for what Freya might look like if she was human. It's one of the most effective non-mask Freya costumes I've seen. Also your hat is very cool. Crazy Burmecian hat respect.
Mungojerrie - 4th November 2011
birds-hate-flying: Thank you so much for such a sweet comment ;__; I think this entire costume is actually the comfiest one I own with the huge pants and feet :P You have no idea how much I appreciate that comment about my face haha! Once again, thank you very much :) The hat took a bit of trial and error but I'm very happy with how I managed to get it looking in the end. Yours is coming along really nicely, I can't wait to see how the rest of your costume progresses! :)
