Cosplayer chibi_flora > Costume of Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Tunic made from polyester twill and gold ribbon, and is fully lined. I really need to learn how to install invisible zippers.
Cuffs made from polyester bengaline and has interfacing. The leg ones attach with elastic. Thigh highs are purchased from Sock Dreams.
Cape is some kind of knit and some kind of evening wear fabric I found in a remnants pile. I have no idea how to make capes. :
I initially made the armor with craft foam. And then I remade it with worbla because playing with thermoplastic and my hair straightener was way too fun. The pin is made of craft foam.
I made the gloves and attached them to the white cuffs. I hope that I will not have to do this again.
Attempted to make shoes. I'll have to find some way to keeping the paint on there, otherwise I'll have to repaint them blue everytime I wear them. :P
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is that one costume I started before even playing the game. But it's Fire Emblem, and I've wanted to make a Fire Emblem costume since playing Blazing Sword.
- Styling Notes
- Took my Hakuryuu wig and trimmed off a good two inches. Developed newfound respect for my local barber. For default lord class, I took a longer dark blue wig from Lucaille and layered it, so the long parts can be tucked underneath the cape for the Marth disguise. But then I realized I thinned it out too much and had to go back and sew in additional wefts (from Arda) to retain the same volume.
