Was wondering if anyone has or plans to cosplay any characters from this series of games? I did see there was a thread about this over in the AX forum awhile back, did it happen at all? I've been wanting to do Rutee for YEARS. Unfortunatly she falls into my 'I'll do that as soon as I loose enough weight to feel comfortable in it' costume catagory -_-;;; But she is one of my all time favorite characters, so SOMEday I WILL do her!!

AX had a good turn out for Tales based cosplayers! Unfortunately not at the same time!

When I was there I did see Eternia and Destiny!
From Eternia there were 2 Meredies, Marone adn I think there was a Keele....and I was Reid Hershel!

From Destiny there were 2 really good cosplayers on Sunday being Stan and Leon.

As for Phantasia there was a group a long time ago..I think they were call iPlay who did a whole battle scene for a masquerade skit...

Well, some of us who were discussing it decided that next year's Akon would probably be a good time for Tales cosplay. We wanted to try Tales of Phantasia- but most of us haven't played it yet, so this way we'd have enough time to try it out. Also, nobody yet wanted to do Cless, and it'd be sorta silly to have a group without him. XD Yeah, iPlay did a huge group from it a few years back with great costumes!

I love Rutee too! I wish someone'd cosplay her, and I've thought about doing her myself. Basically, since Atwight would be a crucial prop (in my mind), I haven't done her. Sword-making is not one of my skills! hehe... I never knew you were into Tales of Destiny! That is so cool!

*is confused* Is that the group I am supposed to be part of?
I should stop procrastinating and play the game already. LOL The only problem is that my PS1 is unmodded and my PSX Emu does strange things to Japanese games. Then end up sped up with the chipmunks providing the music and it drives me nuts. But then this emu was optimized to run on slow comps and I'm running it on a 1MHz, so I might need to slow down the computer first.

>___<

Anyway, I am ranting, but keep me posted as to the status of said group. Not that I can get ANY work on my costume before Katsu, mind you, but still...

> Sword-making is not one of my skills!

I'm going to have to make three detailed swords before Katsu so if I get the hang of it I can probably give you tips. ^___^

I'm planning to go as Farah from Tales of Eternia at AX 2003. I enjoy her character much more than Meredy's, and I think the costume is more flattering- (though orange, pink, red, and green are a strange color combo.) *cheers* Buying fabric on the weekend. Go me!

I'm realy glad to here people like these games! Tales of Destiny has been my favorite rpg for quite awhile, but it seemed to get so little notice in the US in general.

Nietsche, have you seen any pics of those AX Tales cosplayers? I'd especially love the see the Leon!!

Celine, I doubt I'll make Akon, but never know! Yeah, I'm glad you're a Tales fan too! Though not surprising we didn't know since we only did meet that one time and didn't get to talk too much. I am definetly looking forward to getting to know people better at the next CT2 meeting.

Atwight is definetly a nessacity for Rutee cosplaying in my mind, too. The swordians were such an intrical part of the story in that game. I kinda missed them in Eternia. But I can't wait to play Tales of Destiny 2 now!! The REAL TOD2, not the American version of Tales of Eternia. Have you heard about it? It's a direct sequal, the main character is Stahn's son!! There's pics up at rpgamer.com in case you haven't seen them.

Celine
08-08-2002, 12:11 AM
Rosiel- Yes, that would be the group to which I am referring. Between you, Erin, and I (the only people who I have any faith in actually going through with the idea), no one has actually played the game! I got a SNES rom, actually... I know I might miss out on some stuff that way, but at least I trust my SNES emulator!

Alexeil, I have a pic of thoseToD AX cosplayers (http://meteo.rydia.net/cosplay/AX/tod.JPG) ... I sure hope I can make the meeting now. ^^

Nietsche
08-08-2002, 06:45 AM
Yup...i have been to the namco site many times.....and yup i would like to play TOD2 too! Have been hearing exciting new stuff about the system too!

Oh yeah..did you want a Cless, Celine?
I really like those Phantasia designs! mostly because they were done by AH My Goddess and Sakura Taisen designer..(name escapes me..)

Nietsche
08-08-2002, 08:42 AM
Oh yeah..I want Tales of Fandom too! Now to get my grubby mitts on it!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TOD COSPLAYERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have Philia and Mary costumes! *bounces* Although Mary is in shambles. *cough* I HAVE PHILIA! EE! EE! I haven't even read this thread through yet, but Tania just showed it to me, and AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TOD COSPLAYERS! *dies repeatedly*

Celine
08-09-2002, 01:40 AM
Nietsche- Tales of Fandom! Totally!!! And.. Cless!!!! *dies* Cless is soooooooooooooooooooo cute.... we HAVE to have a Cless. He's the main character. Argh, I guess we have time to find someone to do it.

I'm officially doing Rutee for Animefest. Erin will just have to bring Philia. Whee!

Alexeil
08-09-2002, 02:30 AM
Ah, wish I could go the Animefest to see your Rutee! You must take tons of pics!!!

Okay so now I might do another Tales cosplay- not sure what yet....maybe Cless maybe Stan...I kinda see now about the toilet thing in Destiny! :o

eee! *fangirl scream* i love tales of phantasia so much. :D i really want to play the follow-up games, but can honestly say i had a blast playing my spiffy little rom of top. i want to cosplay as chester or klarth- both of them are hilarious~!

you definitely have to post pictures when they're done.

INDIGNATION! :3

i just posted a thread about help with a keele zeibel costume before i noticed this thread. that was scary, and creepy.

i hope to have my keele costume done for fanime 2k4. that gives me lots of time, but i already have the wig! YEah!

Back in the day that time...I woulda just missed AX2000....and hit Otakon 2000..I would have recognised ToP!

Okay then how about Tales of Symphonia?
or ToD 2 (not Eternia!)

I'd so be down for that...I'm already planning for Anime North 2007, and I'm making a Loni costume from Tales of Destiny 2, we need more Destiny and Destiny 2...I love them to death!

Issu
06-26-2006, 05:05 AM
Heck yeah.
There's been no shortage of Symphonia fans around but the other Tales really don't get much loving D: (my Otakon thread definately showed that)
Especially for the older ones-- Good going for Loni, Muse~ :bigtu:
Nice to see other Destiny 2 cosplayers~

I'd love to make a Chloe for Legendia (Jay would be fun too, but firstly, I'm not small like he is, and secondly, my parents would be afraid of me). Tear from Abyss might be nifty, too. Currently I'm working on a Lloyd -- Symphonia, of course -- to wear to CNAnime 06. ^^; I have a Sheena already, which I wore to Anime North last month. <3

And agreement on the ... uh, four-year-old posts celebrating the cuteness of Sir Cless Alvein. He is indeed extremely cute. <3 (Chester rocks too! And Klarth! teh w00t!) I would make a Cless costume in addition to all these that I dream of, but I have no money, and am afraid of accidentally killing said Cless costume with my n00b costume-making skills. That armour...x_X

Tales of Symphonia, Kratos FTW!!

Issu
06-26-2006, 05:11 PM
I've been working on Nanaly from Destiny 2 a while to wear to Otakon. ^^ *is a little more than half-way to finishing* ...And futurely maybe Sink from Abyss? Though now that you're mentioning Phantasia, Klarth isn't a bad way to go either~ Gotta love classics. <3

Nothing wrong with Noob costume skills xD *hasn't even been cosplayin half a year yet* What is a big problem though is money D: I can relate. I really need a steady job to keep up with all the purchases...
Especially when it comes to making Nanaly's huge-arse bow. ^^;

06-28-2006, 11:32 AM
I want to crossplay Jade or Peony some day. I'm so looking foward to TotA! I might make a decent Grune, too, but her dress... :eeek:

Tales series makes for lots of cool costume opportunities!

Zelos_Wilder
06-28-2006, 12:23 PM
The only "Tales of" cosplay I've completed is Zelos Wilder from Tales of Symphonia.

I'd really like to do a Senel or Norma cosplay one day though, their costumes are just so exotic ^^
Andddd~ prehaps some Chester cosplay ^_~

Tifa_Lock
06-28-2006, 12:35 PM
I've only cosplayed Sheena Fujibayashi, but in the future I want to cosplay Genis Sage and Colette Brunel from Symphonia, Arche Klaine from Phantasia and Tear Grants from Abyss *_*

FeelLikeRain
06-29-2006, 12:40 PM
I did consider Norma, too, but the thing is that I'm just not small and cute like she is ... Chloe would suit me a little better, and I would feel really cool in that dark brown body suit. But maybe I'll cosplay Norma anyway, and dance around blowing bubbles at people. ^_^

Tales does provide a lot of fun opportunities for cosplay, doesn't it? Fujishima's designs are just a little plain, that's all ... but I love the character designs for Tales of Legendia. Senel has so much crazy random metal stuff all over the place...

They do have a lot of opportunities to them. I'm surprised people don't cosplay the rest of them more often oo-
--Though funny you say that about Senel, Rain, I actually don't like his clothing for the same reason! xD I find it really busy and the metal IS random! Oh sou random!

Saa, has anyone started anything?
With as many plannings as there are, it'd be cool to see progress pictures when people get to their costumes~

I would LOVE to do Reid one day. :3 He's one of my favorite Tales characters ever.

However! I'd like to cosplay as my favorite Symphonia character sometime soon- Botta <3

Haha, I've never seen a Botta cosplayer (much less a FEMALE one XD), and I can't wait to start on it. I have a feeling my biggest challenge will likely be his beard. :D (Any help will be readily accepted XD) <3

I can't wait to see everyone else's Tales cosplays! It's one of my favorite game series.


~~~ Roy <3

Issu
07-06-2006, 04:51 AM
*loves to see lesser cosplayed characters* A Botta will be awesome~
Haha! I'm in planning to do Kambei for Samurai7 and am also going to have to get a beard going somehow xDD I'll definately give you any tips if I get anywhere with it either. I think I could use some help with that too :3

Yay for Reid! I'm still more of a Destiny2 fan, but how I do love Eternia~

Oooh we have a huge ToS cosplay group here~ I was Colette last year but i plan on being Kratos this year (We're all doing the alternate outfits)

Oh, so you're doing Kratos's Judgement outfit? o.o That sounds tough, but no doubts it'll be worth it! Good luck with it! =D And be sure to post pictures. I'd love to see it. XD Your Colette is awesome, by the way. XD

07-10-2006, 12:46 PM
Hahahaha, oh man, I forgot about this thread XD

Anywho, I'm currently making good ol' Jay for Otakon. I know I got my one friend interested in doing Senel, but more for either Ohayocon or Katsucon next year.

I still want to do Philia Philice from ToD2 at least one time in my life.

Now Anise looks too adorable....Gah! The Tales series has the most awesome collection of characters ever! *_*

07-11-2006, 08:11 PM
Kazzi -- Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! The, uh, two pictures in your Photo Gallery are so cuuuuuuuuuuute! =D


*cough*

After thinking about it some more, I'd actually love to be Mint. I love the pure white that she wears, and just how pretty she is. (Plus she's a good character who can actually handle herself well, rather than being the stereotypical Helpless Maiden.) My eldest sister just bought me a book about healing and medicine in the Middle Ages called "The Wisdom of Nature" as a gift, and I find it fascinating how religion and healing were so intertwined in that time. ^^;

I would play Destiny, Eternia, etc., but they're always expensive whenever I come across them online. x_X I'm kind of new to Tales -- only started playing Symphonia in the spring of 2005. >_>;;

Issu
07-12-2006, 04:36 PM
yeah, I kinda bought Eternia and Destiny on fluke before they got expensive, sou I'm lucky. Its great they're considered classics and all but its always disappointing that you have to fork over your life to play these games ><

Anywho, I'm currently making good ol' Jay for Otakon.
*waves* ^^ Which day are you going to be wandering around as Jay? I'm still gonna find you for a picture when I can. I'll probably start another Tales thread for Katsucon when that comes around oo- Hopefully that'll have a little more attention than Otakon's~

Then I can't wait to get started! I'd appreciate your help and if you by any chance want mine, I'd be happy to brainstorm with you. XD I already have an idea... but it will probably suck REAL bad. XD Kambei?! HOLY CRAP aaawesome <3 And uh... yeah, good luck to you. XD
xDD Thanks, good luck to you too! Its gonna be a lotta work of course, but I'm looking forward to it~ *would be also willing to brainstorm* eh, I don't like the sound of 'is really gonna suck' >< What were you planning on?

I've kinda been tossing the idea of cosplaying as Luke with his short hair. Seeing as how lazy I've been with other costumes,I'm not going to have it planned for one of the cons I go to until it's actually done.

Yay for brainstorming! XD I had thought my idea had merit, but it probably won't last that long '_' Ever hairsprayed your chin? XD Yeeeeah, I have to get my hair cut for Botta anyway (I have this thing about wigs XD)... I had thought of hairspraying some of my own hair to my chin, but that also sounds disgusting. XDDD Or maybe some spirit gummy stuff and wig hair? *goes crazy* And I haven't looked through ALL of the crossplay board, maybe there's something there? (I hadn't found a topic concerning female>male facial hair o.o...)

Back to the drawing board, eh? XD

@Rin: Awesome :D I'm definately bringing Nanaly for Katsu, sou thats three of us sou far. I'm hoping for an overall-general gathering for Tales like on this thread instead of how it worked out where there was a Symphonia gathering and then a Tales gathering. Hopefully I can make it fast enough to do that. x3

@Yagami: ~_~ I think we all suffer it... Its cool you're still considering it though~ If you get around to it, best of luck to you.

@ RtoP: Eh, my ideas weren't too different ^^, I was thinking spirit gum too only with some furry cloth (like fur-trimming??) in the shape of a goatee. But I'm not exactly sure how that'll work since I've never used SpiritGum and how hard that'll be to remove. I mean.... I don't want a goatee-print all day >.>,
*is also looking for a thread too*
If we can't find one, want to make a question thread about it?

Haha, a goatee print would SUCK. XD I also wonder how hard it'd be to get off, because I certainly don't want one either. And it would be horrible if it stuck so bad it took skin with it. XD *has frightened herself* ... O.O

And yeah, if we can't think of anything that'll work REALLY well, I've no qualms with starting a topic and asking away. XD

And I saw you on the escalator, Rinkun! D:
You were on your way up and me down when I noticed you in your costume and I totally cursed myself for not calling out to you. You were far away by the time I'd gotten on my way back up ><

For those who aren't aware of it yet, I've started an all-general Tales of thread for Katsucon for those of you who'll be attending it.
I know its a little early for it, but I wanted to have a general Tales gathering thread before anyone starts one for 'one' of the games.
Wish it luck for a good gathering ^^-

My favorite out of the series is definitely Tales of Symphonia. I've already completed a Sheena cosplay but she's just so over done from that game. ._.

I'm currently working on one of the summons though, Luna. I havn't seen anyone do this cosplay before so that makes me more motivated to complete it. I plan to do more from this game though, like Tabatha or Martel possibility. Atleast for those two I could use the same wig. :toothy:

Issu
08-27-2006, 11:02 PM
Aa~ Too cool! :D
Like you said, Symphonia is done a lot... but no one ever does the summons Oo- I think thats even more unusual than seeing characters from the other games!
That'd be brilliant~

Definately post some progress picks up when you can! :D

Psyposer
08-28-2006, 10:45 AM
Oh many Tales cosplayers *_*
so cool!

i cosplay Yggdrasil, from Tales of Symphonia!
and i'm planning to cosplay Veigue and Claire from Tales of Rebirth (me as Veigue and my sister as Claire)
i'd love to cosplay as Sennel and Shirley, but my sister hates ToL ;_;
don't want to be a lonely Senny ^^"
but i'll convince her~

whoa! good luck with your Luna costume Naxul! hope to see it when its finished ^^

Issu: I've actually seen some summons once, Udinie (http://www.usagichan2.com/Katsu2006/images/Katsu2006-259.JPG) and Celicus (http://www.usagichan2.com/Katsu2006/images/Katsu2006-258.JPG). Otherwise, I don't think I've seen anyone else try to do any of the summons. And I'll try to post them asap ^^

PsylockeKagura: Thanks, and I really, really like your Yggdrasil cosplay, it's the best I've seen!!

If anyone's going to Anime Expo 2007, look out for me- I'll be Luna one day ^^ (most likely 2nd day)

Issu

Hmmm, I might be putting Sink on the back-burner right now...
I don't want to, but I'm not sure if it'll be too soon...

Meantime I'm fixing some minour stuff with Nanaly's costume. The wig in particular. [was disappointed some that it didn't stay the way it oughta] It continues to baffle me how many small things can throw off her costume...

Anyone else making progress?

Rin, you are indeed AMAZING. I wish I could get enough people interested to round a buncha Tales people! No one in my group of cosplayers seems all that interested unfortunately enough.
:untrust: ... at least not 'yet'...

Aa, I've been lasy too. I'e started working on stuff recently though? Its a nice way to distract myself from school. Nothing to do BUT touch up when I'm too broke to buy new supplies x3

Edit: Oh yeah, mind if I ask what characters may be coming sou I can add it to the Katsucon thread?

The Tales games are indeed great! At last year's AX we had a pretty good Symphonia group (pic in my galleries), I was the Wonder Chef, I made a Sheena for my sister, and my partner went as Regal Bryant (in his chef costume varient).

We plan on doing Legendia next AX, so I can be the Wonder Baker Mimi and also possibly Shirley too (because I don't always want to be a NPC), and my partner Oniichan will be Jay (he's short enough and has long enough hair). I really want my sister and her boyfriend to agree to be Norma and Raynard, but I haven't sealed the deal with them yet.

Good luck to the rest of you Tales cosplayers, I hope you have a big group for Katsucon!

Almost all of my current/future/hopeful cosplays are Tales. XD

- Sheena - Symphonia: It's really not very good, though. I'm still fond of it regardless.
- Lloyd - Symphonia: I'm working on it and remaking a whole bunch of things to look a lot better. I also [can] look decently enough like him, and act with near-alarming accuracy like him.
- Farah - Eternia: She's so sweet! And again, I can look and act decently like her. I'll probably be wearing her and Lloyd at Anime North.
- Someone from Legendia: I would love to try Senel because his outfit is just so cool, albeit probably a very expensive project. However, there is also the issue of that I look absolutely nothing like him. (Perhaps this could be achieved with dark foundation and a white wig -- I really doubt I'll get green/blue contacts or anything -- but even so. Heh.) Chloe or Norma would be the more practical choices. But I'd feel proud of myself if I could pull off Senel.
- Someone from Abyss: Natalia or even Jade would be fun. Or Tear.

So whats your top five Tales of to do list?
1. Sink from Abyss - [To celebrate Abyss~ And bad guys~ And cause his costume is killer. I'll be playing the game by then anyway.]
2. Klarth from Phantasia - [Cause he's classic and I basicly wanna do his hat and tattoos]
3. Rutee from Destiny I - [I really don't like the tragic heroines in the later Tales sou she's definately a character favourite of mine. <3 She's sou spunky and coniving.]
4. Tear or Guy from Abyss - [Whoever I like while playing first.]
5. ? Maybe Leon from the Destiny 2? [It'd be him or Meredy but
I'd need to swallow my pride for those frills on either... xD We'll see.]

Who knows though! This is all ideal~ I wasn't interested in Legendia, but I'm really looking forward to playing through Abyss. Now that I'm finished Nanaly I'll probably start on Sink after Katsucon ^^

Its great to see people posting here again. Its too bad with Tales there are sou few of us ><

...Yeah! So ... ah ... anyway ... I still need to change that damn avatar. I need to actually go out and get pictures taken. I've seen so many places that'd be nice for that...

Other than that ... my next cosplays will be...

Farah Oersted from Eternia, because she's so sweet.
Senel Coolidge from Legendia, because I'm insane, and will probably be actually painting myself brown and stuff. I doubt Senel will get a lot of cosplay love, so I shall solve this by taking this noble task upon myself.
Jade Curtiss from Abyss, because Jade owns you. He's hilarious.

I'm also pondering a Raine cosplay~ :D

01-07-2007, 11:02 PM
Ahhhh, if only someone'd cosplay as Klarth... XD I've been wanting to cosplay as him for quite a while now. However, I'm busy with another cosplay at the moment... maybe another time...

I did a Sheena Fujibayashi cosplay for AFWcon 06, but it wasn't all that great... the ribbon I was using on my bootcovers wasn't sturdy enough, and kept slipping down, so on Sunday we went to a gas station and bought a box full of safey pins. Problem solved. XD That, and the heat/humidity just killed my giant, pink bow. It was all floppy and bleah... I should've used stiffer interfacing. ^^;

In other, random Tales of Phantasia-related news: the DVD of Tales of Phantasia: The Animation has been licensed in the US and is available on Amazon.com!! Yays!!! :D (XD Sorry, I just had to vent my enthusiasm somewhere.)

Issu
01-07-2007, 11:13 PM
Haha! I want to do Klarth too but am in the same boat. Too much to do to spare time on it. Hmm, and maybe Rutee. I think I'm moving Rutee up after I do Sync for AnimeNEXT.

Aa, I do know that Miyu is doing Leon though when she gets back from holiday~ I can't wait to see it :33

Hooray for the wonders of DVD :D

For some time, I've been thinking about cosplaying Jade Curtiss (Abyss) or Klarth F. Lester (Phantasia), but I've no idea when/if either would happen. And I probably wouldn't want to bother with Jade's hair or Klarth's tattoos.

01-08-2007, 05:01 PM

That's wicked. ^_^ I've never played Destiny yet, but oh how I want to. ;__;

Anyway -- yay for Anime North Tales cosplay! I'll be cosplaying, at least, Lloyd and Farah there for sure, and at MTAC. I -would- add Senel in there for North if I could manage it, but Senel = difficult + expensive. I wish I could, though. Or maybe I should do an Abyss costume for then... I can't decide...

For some time, I've been thinking about cosplaying Jade Curtiss (Abyss) or Klarth F. Lester (Phantasia), but I've no idea when/if either would happen.

Srsly? If Randi ends up cosplaying Luke for sure at CNAnime or something, and you perhaps ended up doing Jade then, maybe I should be ... Guy or someone, instead? (Yeah, I don't really want to cosplay any of the female characters...) Or Asch to Randi's Luke, but I don't think I could pull off Asch. But then again, if I'm cosplaying Senel, then there probably aren't many Tales cosplays that're crazier for me than that. <_<


You know what? We should organize, for a particular day of Anime North, an ultra-Tales-explosion-gathering in which we ALL break out our various Tales costumes at once. There was?/is? already a Symphonia gathering in the works for North, but all-of-the-Tales-series would be exponentially more awesome. It's a great series, so it's kind of a shame that more people don't know about it.

...*still feels bad about Lloyd being her primary cosplay, and not completely done at that*

Rinkun
01-09-2007, 06:46 PM
That's funny because Amy and I are doing Senel and Jay for Katsu, though I don't know if she'll do him for AN. I'll try to bring Jay for AN, but last year's heat and his costume being made of sweatshirt material puts me off. I did it for Otakon and nearly died for the 2 hours I wore it.

My Lloyd is really hot too, especially since he wears gloves. x_o Farah's costume might be as well since her orange overdress is long-sleeved, but at least my hands will be uncovered. <_<

Oh yeah! I don't think I said before, Rinkun -- your Jay is really cute. =D

I really want to cosplay Meredy from Tales of Eternia (Destiny 2 in U.S.) but not the dress that she has for most of the game.

One day, I will definitely have a Colette (ToS) cosplay. Not sure when! But I'll do it. Another one that I've recently decided that I *have* to do is Tear Grants. I agree with the majority when I say she's just awesome.
Someday, I would also love to be Arche. XD I mean, look at her! She's cute, she's funny, and who wouldn't have fun carrying a saddled broom as a prop?

I also want to pass this idea by anyone who might be interested: I thought it would be really cool to make a group of the summoned spirits, something like that could have a lot of liberty taken to it. What do you guys think?

I'll work something out.

Alright, so methinks I'm doing Philia, Senel and maybe Cless (or in some other order) for over this summer, and Farah, Lloyd, formal Lloyd, Natalia and Sheena-remake over the next few months. Which is probably overly ambitious, but I can try, right? And it'll also be rather a bit of money, but at least I use my own hair for Lloyd.

I kinda want a Tales of Legendia posse for when I go to FanExpo/CNAnime... A Fun Bunch to accompany my Senel ... <.< I'd also love to get a Tales of Eternia group together sometime, but I've seen so few cosplayers from it -- and most, it seems, cosplay Farah, or Meredy if not. (There's a fabulous Chat on this site, though!) But I'd bounce off the walls if I saw a Reid or Keele. ;_; I'm tempted to do Keele myself, but I've already started on Farah, and I love Farah too. Plus I don't know that I'd pull off Keele very well...

It'd be fun to do Reid, too, but I don't have the body for it. Seeing as he wears a skimpy purple man-bra. <_<

Although ... oddly ... it's the first Tales game I've played where I'm unsure whether I feel like I adore each of the main characters. I do always have favourites, but in Phantasia, Eternia, Symphonia and Legendia, I liked all of the characters (yup, even Shirley in Legendia. Why does everybody hate Shirley so much?). In Abyss ... well, maybe...I probably just need to play through it a little more. Either way, Jade equals ultimate love. Natalia's naivety is also hilarious (example: the skit in which Anise is telling Natalia that Van gets his power from his beard, can shoot laser beams from his eyebrows, etc. -- and Natalia believes her).

XDDDD I loved that one. I agree with FeelLikeRain- Tales of the Abyss is really good, I recommend it.

Starting on Tear's dress really soon!! I'm excited XP I have some what of an idea for that collar of hers..... It's like Sasuke's from Naruto .___. lol. And I restarted Luna from TOS a few nights ago cause--- I got realllllllllllly bored. Finishing up her skirt and joyful stuff like that.

For those who have played or are some what familiar with Tales of Legendia...

I plan to order a wig for a future Grune cosplay (link below) but I'm not exactly sure about Grune's little up do she's got with the veil. I don't want that long of a wig and yes, I have some experience with styling wigs.

Wig I'm thinking of ordering... :

Hmm ... it looks like all you'd really have to do is put the wig in a braid, then wind that around your head and pin it in place, and afterward just style the bangs. But yeah, I don't know how long it would have to be. Just to be sure, you might want to find a wig that's a little bit longer than that one (then if -that- turns out being too long, you can cut it), and maybe one that's light blue the whole way through, rather than light blue/white, if possible.

Either way, yay for Tales of Legendia cosplay! I'm doing Senel in the summertime if I possibly can. (The New Punk wig on Cosworx looks like it will be absolutely perfect...=D)

I'm finally starting on Jade today. I'm not sure how to attempt his collar, but for anyone that is having difficulties with a pattern: use a civil war style pattern and modify it to death. It's the closest thing I can think of that relates to the costume, since it's almost impossible to find anything related to his costume.

Oh whoa- there is white in it xD. Didn't see that before... I'll have to try to find a better one.. I'll have to try that with my own hair or something then to see how long of a wig I'll need (Yes, long hair gets put to good use!).

YES! More ToL cosplayers! There's so many skin tight costumes in that game it's crazy. That new Punk wig was MADE for Senel xD

Yes, it was. =o When I first saw it whilst looking for a wig for Senel, my reaction was, as I recall, something along the lines of "OHMYGODSIT'SPERFECTIMUSTHAVEIT".

Legendia's character designs in general are insane. And yeah, skin-tight . . . *wince* I'm looking to lose some more weight over the next couple of months, as well as clear up my skin condition soonish, so as to look somewhat decent in that and in Luke (yay, tummy-baring...). Technically I'm not bad at all as it is -- 5'6" and 131 pounds -- but I still wouldn't look good in something tight like that. Not that that's the only reason for said desired weight loss, of course; I'd like to get more in shape regardless of cosplay, but it'd certainly be nice considering I'm hell bent on cosplaying both of them. <_<

Oh yes. I'm trying to get myself in the best shape possible for AX07 as Senel. Right now cosplay is a great incentive to diet and exercise, but I'd LIKE to think that by the time the con has come and gone, I'll have stuck to my regimen so regularly that it'll just become a habit. XD XD

I've finally began to sew Jade up, but I have several issues that are concerning me about the costume. I would like some opinions from fellow cosplayers out there.

1. Is Jade's outfit teal or blue?
2. I am using a military (civil war) style outfit and the back is sewn into three, where you can see the lines. Is it going to matter much if I continued to use the back of this pattern or should I attempt to modify another pattern back?
3. What should I do for his boots and bootcovers? I'm not sure what I should use to hold up the bootcovers and I'm not sure how to go about making his boots.
4. Has anyone in here made Jade before and can offer help or advice?

1. I believe that in the game artwork, his uniform leans to teal, while in the game, it leans to blue (also depending on the screenshot).

2. It appears the seams are more of a detail than a construction device, almost like the extra seam in Organization XIII coats. Since his are on the back, I think modifying is at your discretion.

That's my 0.02.

This site may be interesting to you, especially as they make commissioned Jade costumes. They appear to use blue instead of teal. http://www.mooncostumes.com/item/14827

I would call the colour of Jade's uniform -teal-, for sure; that's certainly the way it looks in the vast majority of the official art, etc. of him. Blue just wouldn't look as good to me.

ChibiTifa -- I'm going to be Farah at Anime North this year (really need to be working on her outfit right now, though) and shall be doing Keele sometime in future as well. ^_^ I might even say 'oh hell, whatever, I'm crazy' and do Reid in addition to that -- not sure when, though -- given that I eventually work up the courage to wear something that skimpy. He has a man-bra. o_O But I'll already have worn something that shows my stomach (Luke) and something skin-tight (Senel) by then, so... <_< ('Sides, Reid is roxxor. Apathetic, lazy, bottomless-stomach'ed RPG heroes for the win!)

The costumes seem rather... amature to me though. But I've seen alot of cosplayers and people agree that its blue. But I think it's personally teal. Teal just overall matches the art more then the game.

Thanks though.

I'll upload a picture of it. It looks rather like goldenrod, actually. I'd be happier if it was a LITTLE browner, but it's a more reasonable substitute. Fortunately, it's a fairly neutral color, so it'll suit the colors of the cloth I bought for the rest of Peony. I'm a color matching freak. ^^;;

I was actually mildly freaking out when I realized, "Oh crap! I don't think they make cloth in that strange shade of yellow-orange-gold-brown!"

I've seen people use vinyl/leather for the skirt and make it work; it also looks like they started with white fabric, masked off the grid patterns, and painted the rest black (there's spraypaints that specialize in plastic surfaces). Your twill might work too, but in answer to your question, I think 80-90% Cool Gray is how I'd describe the color of the skirt.

And ... yeah, I was thinking the same; it does look like a dark blue-grey. <_<; I guess I'll just use the twill for his gloves and save the rest to put to other uses. It was just that the contrast of the black with the white patterns would look really cool, but accuracy wins.
