Final Fantasy XIII
Last Updated: 06-30-2010
When my boyfriend and I started playing Final Fantasy XIII, we took one look at Lebreau and said, "Wow, she's cute!" I loved her costume design, she works by the beach, and her personality was similar to Tifa - she even runs her own bar! She's a very minor character and very few people recognize who she is, but the costume is comfortable and was a lot of fun to do.
I literally threw this together in three days; the top is a store bought bikini covered in purple poly/satin with an added zipper and appliqués cut out of gold PVC ribbon from JoAnn's. The shirt I patterned after a work shirt. I used a zipper for time; I may redo the top later with buttons. For the accents I found the perfect green crepe in the clearance section for $3 a yard, but I needed the base of the top and the skirt to have a stiff backing, so they are both sewn over an ugly twill material, which helps the skirt poof out and the crepe hold its pleats. i found some fun buttons that I sewed on the skirt for the studs, and the gold design is more PVC appliqué. The booty shorts were my first attempt at ever making pants; i used a pair of shorts i wear as PJs for a pattern. The shorts design is silver PVC and was hand sewn on in the car on the way to the con. >.> I already had the wig, accessories, stockings, and shoes and painted ankle bracelets to match my shoe color.
