A Costume of Resolve.
Myself as Erza Scarlett from Fairy Tail. Photo taken by Lionel [lionboogy] at Katsucon 2009. This was the other new costume I made for Katsucon, which also did not get entirely finished for its first outing. There are many other versions of Erza that I'd like to construct eventually, but this "armorless" version was fairly simplistic, plus I just can't resist blood, guts, and hakama [even pseudo-hakama]. The flames are a hand-painted applique, and the pants were self-patterned. The Misty wig from Cosworx is one of the nicest I've ever worked with [despite its length, it came back from the convention with only a few minor tangles], and I would definitely recommend it above the Enchantment or Godiva wigs. There is much left to be finished on this costume, and I'd like to do a more detailed makeup job with the wound across her stomach red contacts, so please ignore the semi-complete state of the cosplay. Oh, and it was totally below freezing and incredibly windy the evening we shot these. XD The silly things we do for cosplay!
Please no critiques/criticism. I'd like to keep this gallery happy! <3
