This is going to be a big change from the last few costumes I've made. Where recent costumes were challenging solely because they had so many intricate and unusual details, this one's not particularly complicated - thus the tailoring has to look really good. No crazy stuff covering it up.

Astonishingly enough, I essentially made the coat from scratch without a pattern in approximately two days. For roughly $9... and $6 of that was buttons and other fastenings that won't even be visible under the armor. Nice sale on twill. Armor is the craft foam + posterboard method I used for akatonbo's Gabranth armor, since it worked so well for that.

I agonized over the wig a whole lot before ordering - it's funny how hard it is to find a long straight wig lacking bangs that isn't Godiva-length and thus a waste of money. Amphigory's Enchantment might have been useful, but the only darkish blonde it came in was an ash blonde - and looking at reference pictures, Agrias's hair is definitely a golden blonde (compare to Ovelia's light ash or platinum). I knew all along that I would want a wig in 24B, and finally managed to track one down. The braid appears, from the reference art and the sprites, to be a herringbone braid, and that was something new I had to teach myself (on an old cheap wig, while waiting for the real one to arrive).
