Random Favourites



I am a long time Final Fantasy fan. And in all FF series my absolute favourite character is Oerba Yun Fang. I really love her; she's strong, independent, reliable and beautiful woman, who always protect her friends and literally will tear down the skies to save loved one. And she's kinda badass :) So I wanted to cosplay her as soon as I've seen her in FFXIII (her first appearance on screen is just WOW. As is her reunion with Vanille :)). It helped that my friend Luckydakk planned to make Vanille, so I think that was Destiny in motion here :)
I re-made the costume twice, for 1st time I realy had no time to finish it. There are a high level of detalisation in FFXIII costumes, and there are also problems with fabric and materials selection thanks to renders which show the texture of all the details. I re-made my Bladed Lance twice, also.
Most of the problems were with saree border, which I was forced to make from scratch in photoshop (not 1 version of saree border ornament in web is correct, imho) and then order fabric print. Also, her sandals were a pain, as was Bladed Lance. But I managed to finish it and I am SO happy I have a costume of my favourite character ever! Even more happy that I have my Vanille and our photos together :)

So I'll be posting photos from our photoshoot of FF girls, my Fang and luckydakk's Vanille

Forgot to mention our trip to Nizhniy Novgorod for Animania convention. Originally, there was an "Old School Anime 90s" theme, so we were glad to submit our ROLW costumes. Unfortunately, there was so little old school costumes submitted that organizators decided to skip this theme, but nevertheless accepted. So, we did go there on the general terms and, somehow, won :) Well, actually we took 1st place in Eastern defile section. 

As for me - I upgraded my Deed costume: made another version - the one from OVA and several arts. And we also re-assebled our swords (Ashram's mainly). Hope we'll manage to have a photoshoot with new versions too!

As for now - me and ErikDesler on stage of Animania:

I am a married woman with 8 y.o. kid and a rather demanding job, thus I don't have that much time for the cosplay, especially since I sew and craft most of my costumes. That is the main reason I have such a short list of finished costumes, though I always have a huge list of wanted cosplays-to-do.

Most of the project now includes fencing and stunt fighting and, by extension, my partner - ErikDesler, and thus most of our paired cosplay includes some kind of weaponry (mostly steel swords) and now open-handed combat and stunts as well. Our cosplay and fencing duet named Sword Art OFFline.

For better or worse, I fail to appear on DA on semi-regular basis. So you can find me here:
