Lulu (Version 2)
Final Fantasy X

Cosplayer: FusionRose

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

Ayacon 2011

11th August 2011: Bottom of skirt pattern unlike the other "lace" detail where i just drew it in a long line, for the bottom of the skirt i drew each part separately. So lots of flowers, leaves, sunshines, tyre things and squibblys. here is a picture i took when i drew half of the shapes to put on the bottom of the skirt.

10th August 2011: Top Progress Sleeves and Corset, before i put the fur on.

10th August 2011: finished top half It's 5:15am, i have been working non stop for 14 hours to get the top part (corset, sleeves and fur) finished and it's done, but now even the TV has gone to bed so i should too. Pictures will be uploaded tomorrow!

9th August 2011: More lace detail Added to top of skirt. Still needs to be painted over and add the little bit of gold detail. This is taking so long >.<

9th August 2011: Announcement! I would just like to take this moment to declare - that after this cosplay is complete - i do not want to see another belt ever! X_X

7th August 2011: Contacts Tested my contacts today and i absolutely love them! I don't have the lashes on in the picture because the ones i got were too big and lulu's lashes are really subtle so it would look a bit too stupid xD I'll be buying the lashes that i wore for my quistis v.2 as they were really purdy =D So no lashes for this picture xD

4th August 2011: Pattern WIP I've started drawing out the pattern on grey cotton with a blacl fabric pen. The one in the pictures is to go on the sleeves. I'm also in the middle of drawing the pattern o nthe top of the skirt and then i will start on the pattern at the bottom of the skirt. This has taken me 2 and a half hours so far and my back hurts so i'm going to have a break xD fingers crossed it will look good!

2nd August 2011: Adding grey lining I've added the grey lines on using a hot glue gun, thank you whoever invented the hot glue gun, you are a life saver =D I'm quite proud of the result.

2nd August 2011: Corset stage 1 complete I've done one side of the corset with the black material and here's a picture just to show the difference between the two sides.

2nd August 2011: Adding black fabric to corset. I decided to add black fabric to the corset as i hated how shiny the corset was. I pinned tha fabric on then sewed it using the sewing machine. I added extra fabric to the front bottom part of the corset to change the shape so it resembles Lulu's corset more.

1st July 2011: 1st July WIP Things i have and what to do for this cosplay.

In Progress stuff:
1) I have the Jewelerry from my V.1 however i'm going to re-bead them onto something that isn't wire as it really annoyed me last time >.<
2) Hair sticks, however i might shorten them down as they are a tad too long.
3) PATRICK! (For all of you who don't know, he's my Cactuar.
4) Wig, i hated that hair extension and it was a pain in the butt =/. I've already got the Wig now =]
5) I've already got a black petticoat which i will be working around.
6) I've already got a corset which i will be highly editing by putting a non-shiny black material over the top and then the grey detail also.
7) I've just ordered 4 metres of a beautiful black leatherette that looks like a very dark grey compared to the black material, an effect i really wanted as that what lulu's dress looks like.
8) Belts leftover from my old lulu, i'll also be buying some more and i will actually be putting this on my securely as they fell apart so easily from my last lulu >.>
9) Stockings i have from my v.1 - this time i'll use spirit gum so they actually stay up xD

What i still need to do:
1) Buy grey fur (I'm going for the in-game image of her this time to make it more different from my V.1
2) Buy lots of light grey fabric paint for the detailing. Or i might cut it out of a light grey fabric and stitch it on.
3) I must buy suitable shoes this time damnit >.< No bare feet again for me!

Must be hard work to make this costume ._.
Have you styled the wig by yourself?

FusionRose avatar

FusionRose - 17th May 2012
ooh no this lulu wig I didn't style xD Styling wigs up into ponytails are my weakness lol. The costume was very hard to make but so worth it in the end <3 and thanks! ^^ x.
