Making Relm was inspired by Beverly, who had planned her 2.0 of Terra. I decided to follow Amano's design instead of branching out into something different because I liked the simplicity of it, but also thought the colors would go well with the other characters.
I used a lot of "simple" fabrics for Relm, figuring that a child character wouldn't be wearing much that was fancy, though someone as young as she would definitely like the simple bead strings I ended up applying. Mostly I used cottens and linen, though I splurged a little on the corset fabric since I wanted one thing that stood out a bit.
The hat is hand painted and sewn to the wig since I hate losing items off myself while cosplaying. My paint brush is made by Jem, and is formed out of a dowel rod, wig hair, and paperclay.
