Freya Crescent
Final Fantasy IX

Cosplayer: Mungojerrie

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

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

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!!!

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.

Mungojerrie avatar

Mungojerrie - 16th March 2009
Thank you! :)

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!

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 avatar

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

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 avatar

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! :)
