Princess Velvet of Valentine
DescriptionTotal cost: $16
I'll go from top to bottom with the costume.
All red is made of velvet given to me by my grandmother for free, and the black is a t-shirt my mom gave me that she bought at the thrift store.
Snood: My mom and I came to the conclusion that her hood isn't attached given some of the artworks. So we made a snood. this was a custom pattern. 90% of the snood is sewn by machine, but the band and ties are sewn by hand. The stars are made of wood, and hot glued into place and painted gold.
Cap: Made using scrap fabric from another cosplay and lace that I bought at Value Village. Beads and stars are hand sewn on using a wire to string them. The stars are wood, painted with gold and hot glued to beads.
Wig: Initially meant for Kefka. So I'm not including the wig cost here. Wig is just placed the way it should be.
Top: I took a top that my mom gave me and turned it into a crop top. I also took it in considerably for a nice snug fit. The ruffles are made of gold satin reused from Kuja. Sleeves are velvet and cotton stretch.
Skirt thing: Used the bottom of the shirt for the black. Sewn by machine to the velvet and it's made to lengths I'm comfortable with.
Tights bought at Zellers & shoes at Ardene.
Weapons are commissioned from my sister-in-law. She did an awesome job!
As an added detail, I hand-sewed beads to the snood, sleeves, and skirt for added sparkle. There are over 1,600 tiny Czech seed beads on this!!!
