OMG finally! Lina Inverse is one of my top fav characters, if not like #1 or #2. I made this costume over the course of about 2ish months. While most of the parts weren't that hard, they were just rather tedious and time consuming. The armor alone took about a 5-6 days worth of work between construction, sealing, sanding, and painting. It was worth it though since I love my armor. This costume also called for a lot of resin casting and some of which I casted multiple times. Surprisingly the tunic I think was the hardest. I didn't really have a pattern to go off of and my first attempt was to make it close in the front. After realizing that is hard to do and make it look right when using a stretch material, I opted to make it a pull over instead. Overall this might be my new favorite costume. It's super comfy to wear and I enjoy being this character so much!
