My most complicated and favourite costume so far. I chose this costume, because several costume making techniques had to be put in use. I had to paint textil, make armors (but not a full armor), and do a lot of sewing. Although it wasn't a very complicated dress to draw. So I think it was a very good cosplay to try my wings out.
I'd also like to emphasise that I like Esther's character and Trinity Blood very much, so I had no problrm with staying up all night to get on with it : ).
I started this costume with a petticoat and an underskirt. And of course, I started to paint the motives on it, all of them planned by me: ) It was a very time consuming work. Than I sewed my dress. I used vetex to harden the dress and to achieve a good shape. My accosories was made using craft foam, plastic sheet, and modelling clay : ) I think my most detailed accesories was my cross..oh, I don't know how to call it, the thing, that hanging around my neck on a pearl necklace.
My gun was one of the best part of my costume, I think. I did it after the pvc figure. It was so cool, that I had to make it! (and I haven't seen any cosplayer, who have done it). I was made by using blue isolation foam, craft foam, plastic sheet and glue gun : )
My wig was bought in ebay (zhenna), and was cutted by my friend, Tazzie : ) and she done my make-up too ^^ So much thanks for her, to help me so much ^^
Best costume award ^^
