Final Fantasy XIII
DescriptionBudget Cost: 15$
~REDONE~ 4th attempt
(knit ponte, broadcloth)
I drafted the pattern from the original. The shirt is lined with a cream colored knit fabric. The cutouts are chiffon.
~I used bias tape for the contours on the hips and zigzags. The closure is held with velcro, because my sewing machine's button hole feature sucks.
*SKIRT* - dyed with red acrylic paint
~taken from a quilt. The skirt is lined with black coat lining.
~used left over lace from another costume- it was dyed black.
~The gold ornament is a belt that I cut up. The circle things are metal.
~REDONE~ 3rd attempt
*SWEEPER* -dyed with acrylic paint
Had to redo this because the other sweeper was to short.
-I drafted the pattern with the old sweeper and surged the edges, before hemming. The ties are hot glued onto the back. I left out the circles because it is hard to manipulate chiffon.
~the belts were painted silver.
~The chain was reused-I redid the necklace with Dry Crayola clay. The swirl around the base is fun foam.
~ I made the earrings bigger so they would show better in photos.
~I traced over a blown picture of the earrings, filled in the outline with hot glue and extracted them with an exacto knife. They were attached to clip on earrings.
~most of the glass diamonds were found at home. I improvised and threw some metallic pearls in to break up the diamonds, because it was too plain for me. =D
*SHOES* -painted with interior paint.
~they were just chilling in my closet.
Bought new wig from eBay. I usually buy from this seller:
It's a great wig and came styled perfectly, aside from the bangs which were left long.
I cut the bangs with thinning sheers and held the style with GOTB glued hairspray.
Gummibar Mao Melissa: Thanks! I think it's better to be creative, when you feel it and it comes naturally. Forcing it just burns you out. But I am glad this is a source of motivation. I look forward to your projects. :)
Mao_Melissa Your Serah is so lovely! You really make me want to push forward in my FF & Resident Evil cosplays. Creativity doesn't come as easily to me as it once did, so I thank you very much for inspiring me to keep the dream alive!
