Comment:
This is probably my favorite project from 2019. I totally fell in love with this show and with Raphtalia. The costume took me so much longer than expected to finish.
Fabrics are cotton, cord and polyester, as well as fake leather. Making the dress took a while to make it very smoothly fitting to the body. Gloves, boots and armors are made with fake leather. For the armor base, I used foam and then later covered it with the leather, so get a better shape. It was also my first time trying to make realistic looking animal ears. I really love characters with animal ears. The Tail and the ears are also airbrushed to give them the color gradient. The only costume piece I did not make myself is the sword. I commissioned it from Pingu, who did an awesome job on it. I made the sword sheath from foam and leather.
The costume is not the most comfy thing to wear, because it has many layers and it tends to get quiet hot in it. Still i really enjoy being Raphtalia :3!
