Franziska von Karma
Phoenix Wright

Cosplayer: Debbie Ella

Variant: Game. Decided.

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

25th October 2010: Wiiiig! Yay I just bought a wig! ^___^ I need to fix the fringe a bit, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with it! I went for a more greyish blue since I like it and it seemed to be the general vote by my lj. xD

24th October 2010: Well look at that! I actually went ahead and took the pictures! Yay! I also took an old white shirt and added the armpuffs, which still need a crapload of starching, and an old black vest. I need to go buy the trim for the edges, but I'm not sure what I'm going for yet. I want to avoid the neon-yellow-owmyeyes that most people seem to go for, but we'll see.

Still haven't decided what to do about the wig. I've got a load of the official artwork (and quite a lot of fanart xD) and the damn woman just keeps changing colour! >__<

23rd October 2010: Wigs wigs wigs... Why is it always so hard to find the perfect wig? I'm looking at white wigs, blue wigs, teal wigs, light blue wigs blah blah blah. It looks like I'll just get a longish white wig and cut it myself. *sigh*

I still haven't taken a picture of the skirt and shoes I have, I'm sort of slow. xD I might also have a shirt that I could cut the arms off and add the puffs, but I haven't found a good fabric for the armpuffs yet. Or for the vest. Now have I decided what to do about the cufflinks and brosch. Leaning towards resin or possibly mosaicbits, but it depends on the weight. I dunno. We'll see. :P

Do the real version, it'd suit you and it's a thousand times better!

I am considering it to be honest, I like the design better! Plus I'm a bit worried people might think it's just a fail version of the game design. ^^; I blame it all on Lauren!

Whenever you decide to do her, let me know and I'll happily pull out Phoenix again, ^_^ Or I could try my hand at Gumshoe... I love Mii-kun's version of Gumshoe so much... XD XD Though of course it depends if I'm going to whichever event you do her for. XD XD

When I added this I hadn't actually played the games, only seen the Takarazuka musical, but it turned out that Dennis had a copy of the game and I ended up spening lots of nights playing it. It's really good. ^^

@Steve - I wish I could help you, but I have nooo idea how to do Maul's puffs, they are so much bigger than Frans. xD But good luck! :)

And thanks guys! It's fun to do girly characters. xD (@Mike... lol xD)

Aww I know you would help if you could ^_^ Good news is I have finally cracked them today, YESSSSSSS. :) (Sneak peak in Maul journal - I have no idea what the name is for the forearm pintucks or pleats or whatever but a bit of creative guesswork and folding and ruled lines seems to make it all work. :P 5 days left still *_*

Oh, that's a great colour of wig for Franziska! It all looks really good so far...

Debbie Ella - 7th December 2010
Thank you! I fretted about the colour for weeks before ordering, since she has different colours in like every picture, so I'm very happy with it, thank goodness! The wig is a bit on the thin side though, but I did just get it off eBay so I'm happy with it. ^___^

Wig looks a lovely colour and so soft, and progress on the costume is looking good too. :)
