Natalia Luzu Kimlasca-Lanvaldear
Tales of the Abyss

Cosplayer: TheStarlightFairy

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

21st May 2013: Wig and stuff I'm getting the prettiest wig in existance for christmas, it's exactly what I wanted for this costume (and its variants!)
Also bought some white vinyl for the boots, it was cheap because it was a bit grubby, but the muck has washed off without a problem wooo

Edit:
Quick wig test! Typically awful photo haha

5th May 2013: Boots Of all the things I've made so far for this cosplay, the boot covers have been the least frustrating. Go figure!
I made them with bodycon fabric (pleather was never going to work WHAT WAS I THINKING), then added black jersey around the tops. I then hemmed the toe parts and put gold bais around the heels. The boots they go over are really comfy!

Have a bad and slightly awkward photo of them :)

I've started on the shoulder thingimajig but I'm not entirely sure if I'm happy with it.

24th April 2013: Ascot I currently hate this cosplay and want to burn it in a ritual, complete with Wicked Witch cackling and screaming
Mostly because of this ascot. I tried desperately to get it to look right and not like a napkin and failed with all the mock-ups and practices and failed. Sooooo I took a different angle and tried a variation on an ascot and I';m still not happy.
Sooo I dont know what to do. Do I go for the napkin look, or do I try using this awkward-looking rag :c
Sorry about the bad photo. I would get one with it and the dress on, but I'm having problems with my shoulders and trying on cosplay repeatedly aggravates it :/

17th April 2013: Dress Finally have a base dress! I've used the Love Ward pattern S-Lawliet made for me , then changed the top of the dress so it wouldn't have seams. I then gathered a loooong strip of the white cotton for the collar, and put an invisible zip in the back. Need to take in the skirt a lot next!

27th March 2013: Bow and arrows I bought a Merida bow from the Disney store (it;s actually quite big) and I'll be editing it to look more like Natalia's bow.
I've commissioned some arrows from inyourdreamsfx as the arrows that came with the bow are awful haha

UPDATE 2/5
The arrows arrived this morning and they are fantastic! I hope my edit on the bow looks as good!

31st August 2012: Plans and fabric Bought some fabric for the dress today.
After studying this outfit for a ridiculous length of time, I've finally worked out how I'm going to make it!
Also have my eye on a potential wig

Love this outfit! One question: where did you get that wig from? I am currently on the hunt for something similar.
