I went into this costume thinking it would be simple. Oh, how wrong I was!
The jacket is the part that gave me trouble. It is a combination of red velvet and gold swirl brocade. I love the combination, but I had a horrible time trying to line the jacket! I ended up taking it apart to make other costumes.
The accessories were fairly easy. The medals were pieces I put together from parts I found at a local costume shop. The epaulettes are pieces of craft foam covered in the swirl brocade. The sash is something that requires no brain power after all the old-school Final Fantasy costumes I've done, and the belt is a white one painted pink.
I absolutely adore the wig! It's a Sepia Scarlet in color 22. I gave it a side part and cut some bangs into it, which took very little effort. I think the wig is the best part of the costume.
