Final Fantasy X-2
Last Updated: 11-16-2011
This costume was made to go along with my two friends who were going to be Dark Knight Rikku and White Mage Paine at Katsucon 2011. It ended up being kind of a pain to make because nothing happened the way I'd planned...except the armor. XD
The bodysuit is made of a faux-suede, which was awful because it was non-stretch and I had to basically sew it onto me as I was wearing the pattern pieces, which resulted in a lot of pin sticking and swearing. I couldn't find the exact color I wanted for the yellow fur pieces, so I ended up hand painting them by making a stencil and then filling it on with misty layers of brown spray paint.
The armor is made from Fosshape layered over with paper mache clay and then smoothed out with Model Magic and wood filler. Everything (except the yellow fur) is painted with acrylic paints, including the earring, which was super heavy because I made it from Sculpey. Do not make your Yuna earrings from Sculpey, natch.
The tattoos are painted with PAX paint, which I first used for my Shiva and is super long wearable and non-rub-off-able.
This costume is retired because due to being dragged around to conventions and being banged around and stuffed in suitcases, little bits of it need repair and I don't have enough invested in this costume to take the time to fix all the bits.
If you have a question about how I made any part that wasn't described here, feel free to send me a PM! ^_^
