White Mage – Final Fantasy

White Mage Name: White Mage Series: Final Fantasy Debuted: Setsucon 2007 Status: Retired Notes Okay, this isn't actually MY costume. My mother made this for and wore to Setsucon 2007. That shiney ribbon in the first picture is a second place ribbon. Because my mom is awesome. [gallery columns="2" orderby="rand" rel="lightbox" lightboxsize="large"]

Maya Fey – Phoenix Wright

Maya Fey Name: Maya Fey Series: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Debuted: Anime Mid-Atlantic 2007 Status: Retired Notes This costume debuted in two parts. Part one was at Anime Mid-Atlantic. I borrowed the wig from my Yomiko Readman costume, and I was missing her jacket. The reason? My sewing machine up and died on me halfway through! The only reason I was able to wear it at all that weekend was because we split the hand sewing. I finished the kimono base and Kali made me the obi. Part two was at Otakon. This time, the costume had its own wig, and I sewed the jacket successfully on my shiny new sewing machine, which is superior in every way to my previous one. Kali made the Obi, the jewelry, and donated the wig. I made the jacket and the kimono. [gallery columns="2" orderby="rand" rel="lightbox" lightboxsize="large"]

Frost – Mortal Kombat

Frost Name: Frost Series: Mortal Kombat Debuted: Otakon 2004 Status: Active Notes Poor Frost has been a work in progress for over three years now. I'm never quite satisfied with her construction, but at least it means that everytime I wear her there's some improvement. Her mask is made of Crayola Model Magic. To get the "invisible" attachement, the band that goes around the back of the head is actually a clear bra strap. [gallery columns="2" orderby="rand"]

Miles Edgeworth – Phoenix Wright Series

Edgeworth Name: Miles Edgeworth Series: Phoenix Wright Debuted: Anime Mid-Atlantic 2007 Status: Retired Notes Edgeworth started life as a off-white size 14 suit. I am a size 2. There was a lot of tailoring involved (not to mention a heck of a lot of dye). The hardest part of the costume is the cravat. There's no way to create those three layers of ruffles naturally, so you have to rely on some form of stiffener. The Objection! parasol is one of my own hand-painted creations. It was a PAIN to make because of the strange font that had to be replicated by hand. [gallery columns="2" orderby="rand" rel="lightbox" lightboxsize="large"]
