The Vision of Escaflowne
Last Updated: 06-22-2011
Escaflowne is my all-time favorite series, so after I got into cosplay I wanted to give it a shot. Hitomiís jacket was a bit beyond my skill level at the time, though, so I decided to try something a bit easier. Merle was cute, energetic, and obnoxious, and a bit of a challenge given how many pieces she required, but overall fairly simple.
The original was a flannel dress, felt ears and tail, and a sculpey pendant. I kept the wig, but just about everything else changed over time: I upgraded the ears and tail to moleskin, revamped the puffs in higher-grade fur, remade the pendant out of resin, added a leotard and tights, and finally remade the dress entirely in upholstery suede with a painted pattern. Iíve pretty much retired the character, though every now and then I do get the itch to remake her again entirely, since there are areas I could improve.
