Alicia
Valkyrie Profile 2

Cosplayer: visiting_wizard

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

12th September 2010: Progress The skirt is sewn and painted now and looks pretty good. Pleasantly surprised at how well the purple fabric paint shows up on the dark green fabric.
Have cut and hemmed the skirt tails as well now so moving on to painting them and the pattern on the top next. :)

9th September 2010: New Machine! New Mechanic! I bought a sewing machine! This means I can actually finish my cosplays, woo!
Anyhow, I've cut the pattern for my skirt and I altered the top I'm using as a base. Just need to paint the pattern on it now.

29th August 2010: :O Eeeek! I am so screwed! I nearly finished making my Hakama for my Suki cosplay so I could start on the skirt and top for Alicia and now the sewing machine isn't working! What am I going to do!?!??!?! O_O

14th August 2010: Wig! I was beginning to despair of finding a suitable wig on ebay when I went to the local fabric/fancy dress shop today looking for ribbon and zips and found this one! It's surprisingly nice quality and only cost £12.50! Yay!
May trim it into style a bit so i can have shorter front bits over my shoulders.
Lucky find has made me happy! :)

27th June 2010: Work begins Since i bought faux leather for my Suki cosplay, I'm using the left-overs to make accessories for Alicia as well. So far i have arm band things and head band and i have enough fabric to make the belt too.
Tonight i finished both the headband and the shoes! Yay for progress! XD

I'm going as Hrist in May (I flipping hope!), and my friend is doing Alicia too. Two Alicias would be odd. Which one would I intend to kill first? ;-)

Nevertheless, don't worry about it too much. When you do get it done, let me know. I might even do Hrist again for the Saturday in October (not sure yet though). My friend is also planning to do Silmeria, so perhaps we could do a group when she's done that?

Oh cool! That would be awesome! I'm going to have to leave Alicia till May anyway as I realized I don't actually have time to make two costumes alongside my uni work at the moment. I'll let you know when I'm done though. :)
p.s: sorry, i only just read this comment. i wish they'd tell you when you get new ones!

And I just read this comment! Heh.

If you ever plan on going a valkyrie costume, don't announce when you're going to do it for until it's nearly done. That's my advice. I've been really struggling to get Hrist done!

Are you going to the May expo this year?

visiting_wizard avatar

visiting_wizard - 18th May 2010
lol, thanks for the advice! I'm planning to make my costume/s for October during the summer since I'll be in my final year at university and probably too busy to manage it nearer the time.
I'm going to May expo both days as Zed from Kiba. Think it's going quite well. Just the sword and locket-thing to finish now. How about you?

Hey hunny, when you do alicia let me know k? I am planning val alicia lol.

My one went rather well, she got some nice reviews.

visiting_wizard - 19th June 2010
Will do! I bought some materials yesterday but since I'm also making Suki I'm not sure if I'll have both done or not. Haven't done much work on either yet but when i have I'll let you know if It'll be October or may. :)
I'm not looking forward to wearing a wig again but it's unavoidable when my hairs so short!

Lol if you get her done for oct I'll deffo look for you! Shes an amazing character to do. My wig was annoying after a while but you get so into character!

I don't recall Alicia ever calling Dylan "PERVY SLAVE!" though Nightmare. XD!

Dammit...I want to do an ultimate UK VP group with you guys!

visiting_wizard - 21st June 2010
that would be pretty awesome! there isn't enough interest in non-ff square enix cosplay! all their games have amazing elaborate costumes but you just see the same ones over and over again - oo look its ANOTHER yuna and cloud, lol!
i've been playing star ocean recently and i really like peppita's outfit. :)

DefineImagineMJ avatar

DefineImagineMJ - 27th June 2010
Funnily enough, I started a new file of Star Ocean: Till the End of Time the other day, heh.

Great progress on Alicia so far. Looking nice.
Heck, I really want to do Hrist with you. :-( Gah! Too many things I want to do with costumes with people. *Sigh.*

visiting_wizard - 28th June 2010
Thanks! Still got a long way to go yet though.
It would be awesome if you went as Hrist again but there are lots of other awesome things to do too. Unfortunately it's impossible to do them all at the same time lol!

I must take a picture of you at the expo~! > < Valkyrie Profile is epic! (I'm still stuck at some point on VP2 but whatever xD.) If you see a Chrona (Soul Eater) running towards you then, that'll be me. :D

DefineImagineMJ - 25th August 2010
I'm liking your progress Wizard. ^_^
I SO want to wear Hrist again asap!

visiting_wizard avatar

visiting_wizard - 27th August 2010

Let me know when your wearing your Hrist again Mel! Would be awesome to get photos together! XD

Zelda - 26th September 2010
Oh the progress is looking epic!!! I will be doing Freya Next may =D, and lenneth at some point o.0 god knows when?

visiting_wizard - 28th September 2010
Thanks!
I'm up for May! It's probably a good idea for me to wear a costume I've already made rather than do a new one anyway since I'm in my third year and uni now and really should concentrate on my work around then. Luckily all my work is due 11th May so I can still go to expo!
Gah! Haven't done any work on this for weeks because I've got work to do! :(

DefineImagineMJ avatar

DefineImagineMJ - 4th October 2010
Sounds good! And yeah, it's hard to work on costumes when there are a lot of other things getting in the way.
Hope you get it done though. Good luck in finishing her.

NightmareWings avatar

NightmareWings - 4th October 2010
Wow...its looking better than mine! I love the skirt and boots!

visiting_wizard avatar

visiting_wizard - 5th October 2010
Thanks! Boots not finished - they're a bit of a pain so I keep putting it off! I've finished the pattern on the skirt but still need to do sleeves and top pattern. So much work left to do! No sword yet either! :/
