Yuna for Dragon*Con (Done)

Post by Mira_Darkstar » Mon Nov 01, 2010 8:50 pm

Since I want to keep track of my progress like my other costume I figured I would share this here. So my costume I am making specifically for Dragon*Con next year will be Yuna's summuner costume from the PS2 game Final Fantasy X. I know I could buy the whole thing from China, but wheres the fun in that?

Anyway here are some reference pictures I am working off of, for people who do not know the costume.

Image

So very first thing I made was the flower that goes over the Obi
Image

Next I worked on making some of the beads for the tassel of the Obi and the earrings. I have since, put holes through, glazed and fired these bad boys in my oven.
Image

Tonight I made the necklace because the one I bought looked way to clunky compared to how delicate the one from the game looks. (Mine is the lower one :thumbs: )
Image

I have also bought some fabric for the sleeves and the white part of the top. There is a friend of a co-worker who does machine embroidery who I might commission to do the skirt, Obi and Obi bow embroidery, however I would need to make the JEF files for the machine. O_o And this is where I am so far. What do you all think?

Can't wait to see the final product Mira_Darkstar.
I, too, am creating a new character but it definitely has nothing to do with the Star Wars Universe. :wink:

Wow, you just can't seem to stop. Looking forward to the finished project. You should come to Youmacon next year. I have a few pictures from previous cons if you want more references.

I'd love to see your Youmancon pictures, and since I will have the costume done for next years, I was planning on going. ^_^

The flower thingy looks cool. Did you make the whole thing yourself?

I picked out the 4 colors of fabric, found a pattern cut out all the little pieces after putting the fusible interfacing on them and then my mom who does a lot of quilting did the satin stitching around everything and the button holes.

A small update for this costume. I tried making the black bra myself and that didn't work out as well as I had hoped so I ordered a bikini top off e-bay, which I just got today. Also started making the white part of the top, here are a few pictures of trying the draping to get the look right. When comparing to my reference pictures I think I need to show a little more of the bikini top.

You are just cranking out the costume parts lately aren't you? Looks good to me, but I don't know the character so couldn't say if your parts were right or wrong. :lol:

Okay a little more has been done on this costume. Tonight I worked on the beading that hangs down from the flower on the Obi. I used a dowel rod, sculpty, eye screws, floss, spray paint and of course creativity.

I haven't decided yet on whether or not to fray/brush out the tassels.

Okay finished up the Obi decoration tonight and re-pinned the top, to make it look a little more like the reference pictures. And made the decision to attach the white top to the black bikini top using two snaps on each side. (To bad I don't have any right now) :mad:

I also show the wrong side out part of the fabric I am using for the Obi to give myself a better idea of how the top will look.

I tried making it as light as possible with using the dowel rod, but I also used a clipon eating for the main piece to be on the safe side when wearing it. ^_^

Just moved these threads into the costuming section. I don't know why I didn't think of that before, since it'd get more attention in here. :oops:

A little bit more progress to report on this costume.

For the Obi I commissioned my mom to help put the main part together. I used the reverse side of the yellow satin like fabric for this, added some medium weight interfacing to both sides and added a small strip of pink fabric to represent the pink under obi.
Image
Image

For the hanging down "tabs" I used the same fabric as I did for the white top. (The tabs are a continuation of the white top) These are stitched and I will add i think three small snaps to each tab to attach to the obi.
Image
Image
Image

For the skirt I tried dying the navy blue suiting fabric with purple so that in natural sunlight it would have a purple/violet hue.
Image

Worked out the pleating pattern and also have commissioned my mom to work on the skirt.
Image

For the Staff, I have painted the longest part of the PVC pipe blue, painted the cut 3/4" PVC coupler to be the gold ring before the leather wraps and wrapped the base of the staff with red deer skin leather.
Image

I glued and trimmed the leather wrapping on the staff as well as glued the gold ring. I also had to add another layer of blue paint. I have to still glue the bell attachment.
Image
Image
Image

And last but not least I got my wig in the mail.
