Paine (Black Mage)

Final Fantasy X-2



This was my first Paine costume. Not all of her outfits are wearable... but I loved the cheesy, colorful design of the Black Mage dressphere in FF X-2.

I put a lot of effort into making the sleeves: the black "scales" are hemmed with golden pleather (bias tape), one by one; then sewn together so they overlap, attached to a stiff lining and finally sewn to the sleeves on the blue bolero jacket. I really like how it turned out, I think it looks a lot better than sleeves that simply have the golden designs painted on. But it definitely was the most time-consuming part on the costume so the whole thing actually took much longer than i thought.

I just LOVE the hat, though it was rather easy to make, and the mage's staff...! These are my favorite parts. - Oh, and the wig... but you can't really see it under the hat.
