Saber

Fate/Stay Night

Last Updated: 06-01-2014


I can't begin to describe how frustrating making this costume was. It seemed like whenever I took a step forward, I took two steps back. The gold ovals on the bottom of the white dress are hand embroidered on. I was really wanting an embroidery machine by the end of that project. I want to say thanks to Maridah here on cosplay.com for being kind enough to describe how she made the scallops on the bottom hem of the white dress on her page. I was having such a hard time figuring out how to approach those.

The wig is a bit more poofy in the back than I would like, but overall I'm fairly happy with my first major styling. More thanks must be given to Kukkii-san for her wonderful wig styling tutorials. I highly recommend checking out her gallery.

I opted to go for less defined sleeves than shown in the anime, but even those proved to be an interesting experience. They're stuffed with a few layers of tulle to help keep the shape. I ended up making two petticoats to wear under this since one didn't seem to be enough. Since this was worn at my last convention of the year, I have not bought the right color of contacts yet, and instead wore my blue ones for now.

I will be making her armor for next year's cons.
