DescriptionI had yards of a gorgeous purple microsuede lying around and wanted to make something from Chrono Trigger or Cross for Youmacon, so this costume came to fruition! Plus it would keep me somewhat warm in chilly Detroit. I used a Lord of the Rings Simplicity pattern for the top half - it was almost identical to Schala's outfit, with the addition of princess seams - though in retrospect I should have modded them out, Schala's top is a bit too loose to warrant them, but what is done is done! The skirt is a very simple three panel skirt and the waistband is elastic. The seams are all finished on the inside and the overlapping collar piece is interfaced. The earrings are craft foam attached to clip ons (no pierced ears for me lol). The pendant is a resin gem I cast backed on model magic with a silver rope attached.
This costume is super comfy and very easy to get into/out of. Love it! Also a good costume for cooler/colder conventions, especially since I can layer up underneath the garments to stay warm (and trust me I can get cold VERY easily ;_;).
