Wow, I think this is the only costume I've ever had that has taken so long to get around to finishing. I was supposed to debut Penelo with Jaina Solo's Fran and Sana-Chan's Ashe at last year's Anime Expo...it finally debuted almost a year later at Fanime >.>
Better late than never I suppose!
I can't believe I finally have this costume. And I certainly wouldn't have it if not for the best boyfriend in the world, Jinyo, who made my jumpsuit in four nights and was sewing the armor in the car on the way to San Jose D: Needless to say because the costume was so rushed, parts of it are really amazing, and other parts are pure crap XD There's great detail on the shin part of the boots, and the arm cuffs and most of the jumpsuit...but there's a severe amount of detail lacking on the armor because we had to be picky about what we could finish on time. Needless to say there will be lots of updating before AX in another month!
One reason I adore this outfit so much is because the jumpsuit is made entirely out of leather. The armor pieces are pleather. And I actually somehow styled a wig semi-decently! There's fabric rope in the braid to make it thicker ^^
