Venus Versus Virus
DescriptionI started reading Venus Versus Virus based on seeing Lucia's outfit on the front of first volume of the manga and thinking "I love that dress, and would love to make it someday." Consequently, it was only a matter of time before it came to pass. ;)
I started Lucia's dress for Katsucon 2008, but ran out of time to finish it. The half-completed dress and wig sat in my closet for two years before I got around to working on it again. This is mostly since I was so intimidated by Lucia's physics-defying sleeves. I ended up having to pattern them twice, and use a combination of straps, shoulder pads, and fashion tape to get them to look right, but I'm really happy with how they turned out.
I need to touch up a few things, mostly involving the wig, but overall, I'm very pleased with how this one turned out.
