Ambrosia asked me to be in a skit with her. She needed all the main girls from FF1-10. I was picked to be Maria. They wanted me to be the new sprite version, which I switched out to Amano version last minute.
Wig was already owned from previous costumes. Just left it the way it is.
The fabrics I chose are cotton interlock. Trying to make it form fitting is not easy at all!
I made the necklace from scratch. I had the necklace conect to the bodysuit to hold it up. The boob cup is a bra padding.
To keep me in place I used a good amount of spirit gum and double sided tape. I also had pasties on if anything were to go wrong.
Every Amano artwork there is a bird on the side. This time in this particular artwork he had a lizard on the side? So I tried to make the lizard with beading. Ambrosia later dubbed it "Amano Barney"
I made the armor on my arms with a cardboard interface. Then wrapped fabric over it.
Shoes started off with a viynl base. Then wrapped fabric over it.
This took about a week to make. Not an easy character to notice off the top of your head unless your a hardcore FF fan. :)
Honorable Mention and Judges Award for entire skit.
