chameleon~! - Final Fantasy Tactics Advance - Ritz
I haven't worn this costume in 2 years, and never got good pics of it until now! >_< I made everything here except for the pink underdress and the mantle under the shoulder armor (made by limebarb). The wig has 3 packs of extensions sewn in, including some white streaks because the character in the game has white hair, but is somehow embarrassed, so has her mom dye it pink every morning. Because pink is much less shocking. I made the armor and staff out of cardboard, paper mache, and Paperclay. The obi I kind of made up, because you never see the back of the character! What else? The belts/leggings are pleather, which I sewed with my crappy home sewing machine. I suggest putting baby powder on the pleather before sewing on a small machine so it will glide under the foot. :D

Awww, the colors in this picture are so pretty and I really like the angle!

I love it when autumn light falls through tree crowns and leaves bright and shadowed spots everywhere. I think it gives photos a really dramatic atmosphere.

Oh, I heard using teflon foil might help with sewing pleather too? But baby powder sounds better-smelling X3

Thanks, everyone! Baby powder sits right next to my sewing machine, because I sew a lot of pleather on it. The smell of baby powder is equated with cosplay in my mind, as is Rave hairspray because of all my wigs. Haha! Probably when I am 80 years old I will smell baby powder and remember my days of cosplaying. *memories*

Pleather leggings are HARDCORE. And when you first said the thing about the pink hair, I thought it was a joke you made up to explain some sort of custom-dying incident. XD

And holy crap, BABY POWDER? That is brilliant! I always tried toilet paper, which would just end up slipping around most annoyingly. :\
