- acrylic paint
- oven hardening modelling clay
- eyelets, zipper, patents, wire, laces, earring base
- patient and a fluffy helper
Frankly to say I wanted to cosplay for our Dissidia team Firion first, but I had to switch to Tifa out of various reasons. First of all: lack of time. The second main cause: Tifa is our team’s organiser’s top favourite female character, so I wanted and want to cosplay her the best I’m capable of.
Let’s start at the beginning.
For her I picked a 100cm long black wig instead of spending a lot of time and money again on trying to find the right hue of dark brown. (Bad experience I had with my Lenne cosplay I would rather spare
myself from this time.) Since there weren’t any dark red leatherette around here, I ordered a leather dye straight from Japan. Until it arrives I’m working on the dress.
The top and the armwarmers are already done. I’m sewing the skirt at the moment. More frankly trying to make the perfect sewing pattern for my pear-like body. xD Let’s say I’m kind of slow because I’m sewing everything without a machine, so please, root for me.
You can see some of the progress pictures below.
