Jumpsuit and White mage coat
Final Fantasy IX
Last Updated: 08-04-2011
Jumpsuit: 95% cotton/5% lycra. Front belt buckles and glove buckles are from E-Joyce.com. Back bodysuit buckles are from Dagger 2.0. Same boots as 2.0 but painted over for a more cut-scene orangey-brown effect.The gloves are also the same but have been restitched so that the fabric edges are visible (yes, I'm that picky that I spent several hours taking out ever stitch and restitched through the original holes just so the seams would be visible.) I then switched out the buckles for the more accurate set from E-joyce.com
Blouse and jumpsuit are self drafted patterns. The blouse sleeves have small folds at bust level that are held in place with steam-a-seam. This allowed me to get the puffed top shape without having a full seam around. The front piece is a small panel that attaches to the edges of the bodysuit to prevent excess bulk. There's a single fabric covered button in back with elastic gathering in front.
The bodysuit is two pieces. The under-suit is a full jumpsuit with the top sewn to it. Self-made bias tape connects the front completely and follows around the bottom of the top piece. This allowed me to get movement but still keep the original design.
Each piece on the top is individually interfaced with vinyl to give it a stiff, wrinkle-free shape. The places where the leg belts attached are interfaced in the same fashion.
The wig is same as 2.0 but restyled with some wefts added. The hair clip is made of a loop of super-thick interfacing folded in half and painted blue with a hair stick that passes through. It holds its shape and stays in place better than anything else I've tried. =)
The necklace: 60mm AB coated crystal from xinacat on ebay. The loops and outer ring are taken from a crown necklace that I dismantled. The inner cap is sculpey with wire wrapped over it to get the ridges. There are five star beads and one plastic cross sticker for decoration and the entire top, (except the top two beads) is painted with metallic silver paint. The top bead has tiny sworovski crystals around the edge. The one directly beneath is glass with silver etchings. These two are not cannon, but I couldn't resist adding my own little touch.
Cloak: The fabric for the coat is woven, it's thick, possibly upholstery weight. The cuffs are leather folded and mounted onto super-stiff interfacing with covered buttons made from the same leather. They are detachable for dry cleaning.
The red triangles are felt and they are stitched down using something like a buttonhole stitch. The hood is lined with silk and edged with bias tape. The front zips closed with magnetic closures to hold the bow in place.The pockets are lined with leftover silk from the hood and have little snaps to keep them closed.
