Amano/ Dissidia version
Final fantasy VI
Last Updated: 07-30-2013
Actually, this costume was inspired by great Amanos artwork. (I hadn't played the original ff VI back then) Later, at that same year I also started to play Dissidia final fantasy, and saw Terra in FMV graphics. My first though was: "She looks really pretty" I was also glad, that they kept her blonde hair, Amano created her. I always thought, that it suited her better x)
It has been about 2 years now, and I finally managed to start this project. The costume itself isnīt the most difficult ones, but holy cow for all those details. (like for all Amanos outfits) Terra wears few different kinds of clothes around her waist, but luckily I noticed, that I already had one exactly the same looking one from my Princess Hilda cosplay. Well, it did help.. a little xD
I started with her shoes. It wasnīt difficult to find a pair of right model, since second hand stores were full of them. Probably because sharp edged shoes are so out of fashion right now :/ They were originally brown fake leather shoes, so I decided to paint them with Gesso first. After that I cut two slices of black fake leather (some leftovers from my Lavi cosplay) and glued them on my shoes. When I was done with that, I painted whole things with red paint, and when it was dry, I painted golden parts few times. Surprisingly, her stockings were that part, which took the most of my time. Well, itīs only myself to blame for, since I took that difficult road again, and decided to make those ornaments by sewing some pearls by hand. x,D But thank God, I was smart enough to start it pretty early, so I didnīt need to rush.. Silly me.
Her dress was pretty easy task, but the details took the most of time, I used, while making it. I chose simple, a little streching cotton/polyester fabric, and painted those flower thingies by hand. I also sewed some pearls on there too. As well as on my sleeves :3 My cape was the last one, I finished. Because of my stupidness, it had to be remaked, since I failed coloring it >< (Donīt ask why)
I definetly need to practise more of that. Maybe next time.. So I just painted few flower ornaments here and there, and also sewed some details too. But cosplay IS 80% creative puzzle solving. At least I think it looks nice xD
My wig is from my Hilda cosplay, There was only few little things, I had to change. Iīm glad, since I hate cutting wigs xD
