I CAN'T BELIEVE I FINISHED THIS COSTUME. @_@ *falls out of chair from exhaustion* This was a very hard project. One of my toughest costume I made now, Emperor Mateus's light form or heaven form, in Final Fantasy II after you unlock Soul of Rebirth. This is another dream costume of mine come true! It is also ANOTHER Emperor cosplay that I did... xD *laughs* So now I have 3 different costumes for the pretty guy. Gee, how am I getting myself stuck making HIS costumes?! XD Oh well. BUT THIS ONE IS SO PRETTY. :O
*takes deep breath* I knew this costume would be very hard... But I didn't think it'd be THIS insane! @_@ Good grief. I don't really know where to begin, but I will say that this took a few months to complete, and with my 10 months of costume making experience in itself, I'm nuts.
All of the purple and white patches were all hand sewn which took days. I counted hundreds of them...
The six wings - all of the feathers were cut out by HAND, and that took weeks. I had some issues wearing the golden arch and the 6 wings, but I'm making it not be a problem now. :D Also, I plan to fix up the shoulders as I know they can be better!
*Tries to resist giggling* Okaaay... Sooo.. little did I know at first that the Emperor is actually pretty well *cough* naykid *cough* in is heaven form? It's a funny story actually when I had realized that, BUT I'LL SKIP THAT!! (you'll have to get me drunk to tell you and lucky for me I don't drink nyaa) So I knew I had to buy sheer see-through material for myself. S-s-s-sooo exposed. Dx I bought the material for it, started working on it right away non stop... and then found out I was short of fabric... <_< *GROWLS!!* So I had to make another trip back to the fabric store. When I got there, I was happy to see that very same yellow material still there.~ ^^ So I scooped the roll of fabric up into my arms, danced down to the cutting table with it, then the lady roooolled out the fabric for me, AND THEN IT RAN OUT!!!! Dx NOOOO! ... I wanted at least 2 yards but there was only 1 yard and a half left. ;_; *SAWBS* But I bought it anyway. 8D And there was enough after all! YAY.~ :D I also bought skin toned material to hide parts that should be hidden lol. xD It worked perfectly! I also made more under robes 'down there' so it's more less exposed. It appears that way as well in the reference picture of heaven emperor as it looks he has more robes wrapped around his hips.
The arch took forever to make too. It was stressful but fun at the same time! It's mostly made from cardboard.
I LOVE THIS COSTUME!!! ...I say that about all my costumes, but I really love this one.. ^_^ But I always forget that I'm wearing those big wings and knock things over! xD I just love cosplaying the Emperor. But sheesh, Emperor is completely taking over my closet here, I'm running out of room for different costumes for different characters! Oh well. Alright! Next up, time to finish Hell Emperor!!! 8D Muahaha!!! .......
