Based on Tekken 3
Last Updated: 07-17-2008
I have no experience making corsets/bodices and I wasn't about to try just yet, so I bought one in Macy's. However, I couldn't get one in red, only white, and it wasn't proper dying material. So, in my fabric hunt I got some gorgeous brocade for real cheap. Due to the wire in the bodice, I couldn't use a sewing machine. I had to handsew all the fabric to the bodice. It was a process becase the fabric had no stretch and the bodice stretched a lot. I would have to put on the bodice, mark how much fabric and what shape it had to be, take everything off, cut, pin, sew, etc. The cups, because of their shape, where the hardest. Since I wore the bodice on the last set of hooks I had to create a flap that would cover the exposed white. The dress is actually two pieces. The bottom part just wraps around and has one snap button where the slit is. No patterns used, just winged the skirt with gold lining. Bought the shoes in JC Penny's for 7 bucks. The gloves I had to dye, but they came out the perfect color. The wig was originally longer, but I couldn't find a shorter one the right style and color. So, I got this one and brought it to a salon for cutting. This is probably one of my favorite costumes to date. I might at some gold trim and possibly a bow in the back when I get the chance. This particular Anna is mostly based on Tekken 3/Tag but I gave it my own flare. I didn't feel like painting the giant bird on the leg, but wanted to keep the typcial asian flare she has every game. So this patterned fabric gave me exactly what I needed.
