Amano Yuna Update

Posted on

My Amano Yuna is nearly done.  I got to wear it to my first con the beginning of this month.  It was so much fun.  People asked for my picture and I entered it in the masquerade.  I got in the top ten!!!  I was really surprised considering it was my first cosplay and I left out some of the detailing since it was an Amano version.  I can’t wait to finish it.  I have to finish, and slightly, redo the hibiscus and tassels.  I want to add more beading to the sleeve ties and incorporate more details into the obi.  I didn’t have any major problems with the obi bows.  Because of the way I made them, I didn’t have to worry about crushing them and they stayed up well.  I am very pleased with how this cosplay is turning out.  I will continue to work on it until either I find another cosplay to devote much attention to or I feel satisfied with the cosplay. 

 

Here are the reference pictures I’m using.

Yuna Costume

I’m almost done!!!! So far this costume has taken me almost a year, much longer than I expected. I wasn’t working on it the whole time, though, because school became way too busy. Meanwhile my costume suffered for it and was put on hold for about four months. But it’s back and nearing completion, finally. All I have left to do is 1) paint the skirt, 2) dye the sleeves, 3) attach the sleeve ties, 4) finish the hibiscus’ beads, 5) find or make the earing, and 6) maybe make the staff. Then I shall take pictures and enter it in a costume contest. *^_^* Also I might buy a wig, but I’m not sure about that yet.

New costume

Today I officially started working on my traditional gypsy/minstrel costume. By traditional I mean that the skirt will go to my ankles at least, the colors are ones that were/are favored by gypsies, the shirt will NOT go over my shoulders and will NOT show cleavage, and there will be no head scarf because I am not married or engaged. That said, I have almost finished the skirt and hope to have that done by tomorrow. My progress is small because I keep jumping from the Yuna costume to this and back. I hope to have the gypsy costume, Yuna costume, and Aerith’s costume from Advent Children done or near completion by the end of Christmas break. I’ve got a lot of sewing to do! *^_^*
