Escaflowne: A Girl in Gaea
Last Updated: 03-07-2011
My all-time favorite series. I've wanted to cosplay Hitomi for a long time, but I didn't have the skill level to make her jacket until recently. I'm pretty happy with how the costume came out, though the fit needs a little refining.
The blazer is a polyester blend, with the collar, cuffs, and skirt made from 100% wool. The blouse was made from scratch, since it required a yoke that was difficult to find off the rack, and the neck ribbon fastens with a snap to preserve the bow's shape. The socks, pendant, cards, and shoes are off ebay. Wig was self-styled, as per usual.
I'd like to take in the jacket a bit, or possibly replace the polyester with wool to improve the look, and make a more accurate pendant. I'm also making her duffel bag, since it never hurts to have a large matching carryall for conventions! My favorite part of the ensemble is the tarot card deck; they're the official ones released by Bandai, very rare!
