Tohsaka Rin (FHA)
Last Updated: 08-28-2010
I decided to do this version of her outfit because I really liked the design. I still haven't played the game, but I had read through a synopsis that made me squee over how awesome Rin is. :)
The skirt is from the Vampire Knight cosplay I bought, as I didn't know how to pleat at the time I made this outfit. The cat ears were bought at a convention, and the wig is one I use for Tifa and Tohru.
The jacket was the trickiest part, as I was also not good with zippers so my friend sewed the zipper in for me, and helped me out with the collar. The fabric is a satin (crepe back, I think) since I liked how non-shiny it was, while still having good texture. The ribbon was fastened on with hemming tape, which is why the ribbon isn't curled the way it's technically supposed to be done. The gems were painted gold over the course of a few days and then glued onto the jacket.
The leg pieces and arm pieces were a first for me, as I had never had to make them before. Stretchy material and I don't always get along. The arm pieces stay up okay, but the leg pieces are hopeless - I think I made them too big. If I wear this costume again, I'll wear knee-high socks underneath so I can pin them to something.
