Faye Valentine

Ok this time it's a normal Faye. It's not complete but I've got the shorts and top mostly done. You can see it here. http://forums.cosplay.com/costume.ph...ail&cosid=9973

I applaud you for having the right deep yellow/marigold color. ^_^ Only thing I can tell so far is that the black near the collar looks a bit funky.. but maybe it was just the photo I was looking at.. o.o;

Yeah I really should have used a different material for the black trim. The truth is some of the little things like that are really starting to get on my nerves so I really appreciate the comments. I'm still really pleased for it though cause it's really the first non historical costume I've ever made so it's a totally different area for me.

I think you should get stiffer black trim and possibly use some interfacing on the collar/front closing part. And I think you should try and fit the shorts a little bit better to your body, because they should be a bit more skin tight. you might try a different bra to get more faye-like cleavage.

But all said, it looks really well made, and I love the color. Post pics when you get the jacket done ^^

Actually I think the problem with the trim is because it isn't stretchy whereas the yellow is quite stretchy. There is some interfacing in the collar but not in the closure part which I don't think would work because I'm really depending on the stretch to get it to get all the way close but right now it's just sewn together real quick and it's not holding real well. I won't make the shorts much more tighter though cause then we get to see some lumps and bumps I'd rather you didn't LOL.

I already have the purple dye picked out all I need is to figure out a way to make my hair grow faster. Why won't it grow faster? LOL

Even tho I'm personally not a fan of Faye I think you did a nice job.

Maybe it would be fun to carry around an Ein plushie?? Unless you've got an Ed going with you, then that should be HER job.

Don't forget about that red tarp thing that Faye always has slung around her shoulders. And, if worst comes to worst about the hair thing, I'd order a wig. At least thats what I do. (^^)

Other than that, rock on.

Yaaaaay!

Yay! It`s really, really good! I applaud you for not making it out of vinyl as well. (Not that vinyl doesn`t look good too-I`m just scared of it because I tried using it once...Anyyyywayssss....) The costume is very well done and I`m sure it`ll look great once you do your hair and get your guns and all that good stuff, Great JOb!!! =D

Yay! Faye is one of my favorite characters of Cowboy bebop. Well done! I would only fix the black trim, but it's fine as it is. Good job ^_^
