10th August 2009: 090809 - Headdress Complete And the headdress is done! I can wash my hands of it and focus completely on the other factors.
Still working out the mathematics for Pronyma's waist high leg slits, but answer goes on backburner while tomorrow is spent dedicated to wings. Rub n buffed two today, and the holders are being strengthened with fabric and glue. Painting to begin tomorrow.
8th August 2009: 080809 - Started work on shoes/wig Got Ricky to paint the body symbols, but need to do them again. Also started work on the leg covers (to my dismay, I found the ONLY pair of leggings in the world that AREN'T skin tight. Good thing I'm stitching them to the body).
Started styling wig since headdress is nearly complete. Didn't go too well but I'm hoping I can spruce it up once the headdress and co are finished.
Wings are coming along too. Need to put in some 3d designs and another coat, then I'm going in with the rub n buff. Will be starting work on the holders tonight to.
3rd August 2009: 030809 - Headress heading for EPIC Fail I should never glue early in the morning - I've only gone and glue two parts the wrong way round. Admittedly its not a terribly large mistake but given how difficult the foam is being in just going into the shape I crafted...Its causing more than a few tears.
Tomorrow all the foam gets put away and its time to bring out the sowing machine again.
1st August 2009: 010809 - Painting is my Bane Hokay, spray paint hates the carpet tape/Primer that the wings are now wrapped in - so unless it dries unbelievably well that's another £6 down the drain and I need to get my hands on a TON of acrylic paint next week.
Headress - looks GORGEOUS even in 5 pieces. I've put on some of the 3D designs and tomorrow I can finish it off and put it together hopefully - so ONE part of it will be complete.
29th July 2009: 280709 - Getting too Close Headdress - still in 5 pieces getting its third coat of glue - the main designs look great and cant wait till its solid enough to paint and see if its going to work as well as I hope.
Wings - On their third layer of paper mache. Will get protruding designs glued on tomorrow and the penultimate layer of mache will go on so I can start working on the harness.
Body - Base is made, need to modify leotard for the high legs (just discovered that this costume means no underwear, joy of joys -_-), and need to shape and trim leg cape.
Still to start:

headdress looks great ^^
Odd-One-Out - 18th August 2009
Flying cupcakes, the dangling props look amazing. What was it like wearing it?
Luki - 19th August 2009
Deceptively comfy. The only downside was that it wasn't particularly poseable. They just droop at the front no matter what you do.

Hi! I was behind you in the Masquerade queue ^^ Your cosplay looked awesome!

Epic! I love Tales of Symphonia and this was a costume I never expected anyone to pull off. You did it really well!
Luki - 19th August 2009
Thanks - I'm really happy that it turned out as well as it did considering the problems I had. I loved your Kirara! Can't imagine what it was like to travel with.
JakeX - 11th September 2009
Holy C*** how did i not notice you around at aya!
I LOVE PRONYMA!!!! Seriously, attention to the detail weldone indeed :D
Luki - 11th September 2009
^_^ Thanks - maybe you'll see it at another con (spent WAY too much time and money on it to retire it yet).
Kacela - 11th September 2009
This is fantastic, i love it ^^
Amy-Lou - 11th September 2009
Such a great costume, your gravity defying wings were really impressive.
Anggul - 12th September 2009
That's amazing, I've only ever seen like, a couple of Pronyma cosplayers, it's really well done. I'm probably gonna update my Kratos cosplay with his blue angel wings soon, but not yet, might be doing a ToS group at expo next year ^_^
Larxene - 26th January 2010
Ok I have to admit I haven't played ToS, but I clicked a link to this on random costumes and it looks epic. You've obviously put alot of work into it.
Harajuku-Guy - 4th February 2010
wow its so cool
i love the floating wings, that must of been a lot of work
Luki - 5th February 2010
GODS yes...for 2 months they were the bane of my existence. Still can't believed they worked out in the end. ^_^
Exelia - 6th February 2010
I still love this costume, ever since the first version. I wish I'd seen the re-make in better detail at AyaCon - something about it just looks so.. impressive ^_^
Love the colour of the wig, too. Mind if I ask where it's from?
Luki - 8th February 2010
Thanks a lot - Sadly the headdress got destroyed when I moved so unless I want to spend a few weeks remaking it I'll probably never wear it again.
The wig was from ProfessionalOnly on ebay.
