Slayers is an amazing series, and Lina and Gourry remind me so much of myself and Chris, so it was only a matter of time until we made these costumes! Lina is probably my fave female character ever, right along with Haruhi, and I love her for so many reasons. Getting to cosplay her will be a lot of fun, especially with a Gourry. The old school stuff needs more love, too.
I picked the same type of thick two-way stretch fabric in three different colors for the main outfit - pink, white, and pale yellow. The tights and yellow top were the easiest parts of the costume. The top was the hardest part of the costume for me, because it's a pretty funny garment - when it came down to patterning, I realized just how odd an open-front tunic with a turtleneck collar really is.
The belts are made out of real leather that I dyed, cut and finished myself.
The wig was made by combining the main wig with wefts to create her very poofy bangs. I actually spent a lot of time just finding a wig to work with as a base in the right color, but finally prevailed in the end.
I cast my own resin gems for the four Demon Lord tailisman, belt, neck brooch, and gem rows on the boot and glove cuffs. It was my first time making gems, so I learned a new skill set.
