Amazing work Jia! And that is so true when cons are breathing down your neck and you are checking every few minutes to see if it is dry enough to move on. Oh man cosplay...
I was wondering about your blade. It looked/looks so impressive.
I'm pretty sure I made a fool of myself fangirling over your Beatrix at ACen, but holy buckets it's amazing! This sword is just fantastic!
That looks so pretty!! I kinda wanna nom on it. Yeah, I know that's weird. ;P
I didn't tell you this at the con, and its kinda random but; I'm a big God Saves the Queen fan. In every Final Fantasy I am looking for the character who holds that sword. Normally they are all pretty similar so I thought Freya would have it in FF9... but instead Beatrix got it. Its really a lovely sword and you did a good job on it.
I loved seeing this costume in person. Everything was just so gorgeous!
Looks awesome - Can't wait to see finished pics of this costume. I know pretty much every cosplay I have done my props have ended up being painted Thursday night in the hotel room.
That looks really awesome! I wish all my rushed projects came out looking that amazing. ;_;
Perfection. I'm sure it can't be as bad as you say it is. It looks great! And so you just used paper clay over the paper mache? I'll have to try that. I used to always either fiberglass it or just stick with wood the whole way but wasn't satisfied with either method. Anyway, the sword looks amazing. I really can't wait to see shots of this costume. I love Beatrix so much. ^_^
