@ MDA: Oh ha ha!! Well that's okay.

Cosplay Update: OMG! I have an update! Touched up the Edgar armor this weekend. It now has a coat of gloss and it looks so much better now. Very regal. So I am really excited to see how it photographs at Fanime. Hopefully now none of the paint will chip off too.

Hello, everyone! I'm getting ready to start on my Narshean Princess-version Terra, and wanted to throw an idea out to all of you, because I'm a bit stumped on how to do the silly little dragon wings she has on the back of her cape (which you can kind of see here: http://images.wikia.com/finalfantasy...erra_alt2.png). I was planning on doing a wire frame with fabric over it, and inserting it through a channel on the top of the cape. It's also sort of confusing because in some artworks the wings are pointing up, and in some they're pointing down! I've also toyed with the idea of using craft foam or leftover wonderflex that I have instead of using fabric. I'm still trying to plan it out, and if anyone has any ideas I would seriously love to hear them.

@Narnian - Sounds good. As the time gets nearer, we can hopefully figure out some plans for the FF4 stuff.

@MDA - sounds like you got your Rydia plans set to go. I like seeing all this FF4 love recently. It was my first FF game when it came out on SNES and first major RPG (well, after Zelda on NES if you include that).

@Seifer - I'd like to see how the Edgar armor turned out. Did you use spray gloss or a pour on resin?

@loveshacktardis - I don't think I've seen anyone do that version of Terra yet, so that would be neat. Looks like you are a fellow FF9 fan as well with your avatar Nice job on that dress, btw Looks like you worked really hard on it.

@ loveshacktardis: I think there are a couple of ways you could do the wings. I have seen some people make a "backpack" rig for their wings (they have to be light of course) and I have also seen wings that hook into the dress (you probably wouldn't want those to be heavy either). The backpack way means you wouldn't have to cut slits in your cape, which might be a good thing, it just depends on the look you want I suppose. I do like the idea of a wire frame covered in fabric for the wings. I think that's what most people do for fairy wings (like Tinkerbell). Good luck!!

@ FinalEvangelion: I am hoping to get a few shots of the armor at Fanime. I might just do a quick shoot for the boys. And we just sprayed it with gloss. :P I am sort of surprised we didn't do that before.

@loveshacktardis : Ooh that'd be so neat to see! But sadly I have no idea how you could do the wings.

@Final : I can't say I've played but I've been learning all I can about FFIV, and Rydia I absolutely fell in love with. Her and Cecil and Rosa. And a bit of a soft-side for Edward even though he's a coward XD But the story is so wonderful

And now thanks to looking through Amano's artworks of Terra, I now want to make her blue and black versions... so VI now has two versions of Terra, Relm, Setzer, and Kefka... at least I know Kefka will be done within a year (about... 9 months to have him and Rydia done)

Oops, I totally thought that I had put my last post in the Dissidia forum! I guess that's what I get for having too many tabs open... and I guess it works because technically it's from an old Amano drawing.

FinalEvangelion - Big FFIX fan! Thank you for the compliment on the dress, it took me the better part of this year and last, but it was worth it

Seifer-sama - Thanks for the backpack suggestion! I have heard about it before, I'll have to look into it some more. By the way, your Terra cosplay is a serious inspiration. After I finished embroidering my Garnet cosplay, I want to do embroidery on all of my future cosplays, including Terra. It's just so relaxing!

MDA - I would love to see someone do Terra's black outfit! I was considering it but I already have two versions of her in the works, I should slow down a bit first XD

@ loveshacktardis: I think the backpack way is probably the most common and hopefully the easiest to keep the wings steady. And thank you so much for the compliments on my Terra cosplay. Much appreciated. I really love embroidery myself... it really is relaxing to just sit and stitch! Your Garnet is just lovely by the way. I can tell a lot of love and time went into that costume. It really shows.

Wow, been a while since I popped in @_@

@loveshacktardis: Two versions of Terra? Nice For myself I more just want to make her black version and blue version. I've never seen them cosplayed.

And I can happily say that today (ok, it's 10 minutes to 1am, so technically yesterday) I started working on the beadwork for my corset for Rydia
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3237425/
I've actually done more since the photos. I will do more once I'm home because I was stupid and left my extra-thin needles and white thread at home. So I can't sew on the tiny white beads just yet. I could go buy more thread and needles, but.... I have four spools of white at home, and two packs of needles. I only brought my regular ones for doing the 5-6+mm beads and basic hand sewing, and only the dark green thread. I'll do more work on her once I'm home (btw, I'm at my cottage, and won't see home till the 8th).

I'll also start work on Cloud of Darkness next week >D Start her perhaps Wednesday. Not much to the costume, so I could likely get most of her done in a day.

I'll also get started on Kefka with his cape.

@ MDA: Awesome progress so far! I figured you hadn't been here in a while because you were so super busy getting all your cosplays together. :P Looking forward to seeing progress from your other cosplays as well!

Yeah, I spent the month of June trying to finish up my two Faeries and get Velvet finished. All that's left on Velvet to do is the stars and beads. Though now I've started Rydia as well, and will start CoD and Kefka. Though I also have Ulty to get working on, and Judge Bergan to make tests for. And Bartz to figure out but he's not till 2014 XD

@ MDA: Wow and I thought I was busy ha ha! I will be coming back to this thread once I start working on Minwu... other than him I don't think I have any other FF cosplays that fit in this thread. I still like coming back here to check on everyone's progress though! I really look forward to seeing your Rydia. I have seen a few people cosplay her and it's so cool how everyone takes their own personal spin on it. It seems like no two are alike.
