Fai D. Flourite (Fye Flowright)

Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle

Last Updated: 05-29-2011


Construction Details:
What should have taken me months to create, was crushed into one month. I completely tore apart my previous Fai coat to create this one. The other one was worn out so I ripped it apart, washed everything and then started to reconstruct. Instead of the applique that was on the coat before I decided to paint it so that I could do the gradient on the coat. I hand painted the entire design and then started reapplying the trim that I had on the old coat. It took about 50 hours to attack all of the trim around the design. The lining is all new and that is really all that I had to buy for this. I also completely remade my shirt since the old one was made 4 years ago..and I've gotten better at sewing since then. The shirt also has the design painted onto it.

The staff was also remade from its original version. The main piece is wood. I ripped off all the model magic I had added to it and instead cut out the design from foam core board. Then I glued the pieces together and set to work covering it with Mod Podge and sanding it smooth. It took about a dozen coats of mod podge, sanding every few coats. Then there is craft foam along the edge to clean it up. I painted it gold, hand painted in the black detailing and then used black paint to age it. The stones are fishtank stones and the jewel is blue quilters plastic covered in the heat shrinking basket wrap.

Personal Thoughts:
I love Fai, and I was incredibly proud of my manga coat when I first made it. But after four years it was worn out and I knew I was going to have to remake it if I wanted to continue to cosplay as this version of him. So I decided to honor the old coat by using all of the same materials and just improve upon it since my skills have gotten a bit better over the years. That is where recycling the old materials comes in. The trim and fur were dear to my heart and something that made my coat unique. So to honor the old coat I reattached it to make this coat unique and special to me.
