Lady Alvida

One Piece

Last Updated: 02-15-2006


First worn at Anime Expo 2003 using some thrift store finds and repurposing some bed sheets and handpainting dozens and dozens of hearts on it. I did this to accompany my cousin's Buggy costume, however hardly anyone knew who I was or took pictures.

I remade the pants, the jacket and the shoes for 2004. Got a wig and used the same blue sarong, hat and heart cape. I also added the bikini top, which was completely covered by the cape. This time I was not accompanied by any other OP cosplayers and 1 person took my picture.

In 2005, I made the jewlery, lost the cape exposing the bikini top, wore fake nails and took along my (finally) complete giant mace/spiked club. A lot more people paid attention to the costume at this point, not sure if it's because the character was more well known, people like giant prop weapons or if it was the cleavage factor o_O; Although in 2005 I also hooked up with some very awesome One Piece cosplayers for groups and wandered around with Zoro (a main character) the whole time so I'm sure it's moreso the reason =D

I get a lot of people commenting on the club - I walk by and they say "Woah, don't want to mess with you" or they want to pose with it or have me play hit them with it. A lot of people also ask how it's made, so it was well worth the many MANY hours it took to make.
