Found the plaid fabric for Sera FINALLY! Not the perfect shade, but I can dye it a little darker. THANK TALOS FOR TAOBAO!!
Sera is impulsive and revels in the moment. For her, it’s not about what’s right, it’s about what’s right now. In the Friends of Red Jenny, she humbled authority and had fun doing it. But now the nobility are being not just selfish but blind. War, demons, a torn sky: these are more than troubling—they’re terrifying. Fortunately, Sera and her “friends” can be frightening, too, and if she needs to put an arrow through some baddies so regular people can sleep at night, so be it. Sera fights for those caught in the middle, but she also needs order restored. The world has to be normal so she can play.
I AM READY FOR FUCKING ANYTHING
Bought all my fabrics for my Sera cosplay today! (Minus the plaid, anyway. It’s kicking my ass trying to find some suitable plaid.)
$33 alone on Shipping JESUS
I’ve learned my lesson from my Merrill cosplay. Don’t try to save money buying leather jackets from thrift stores, it’s just cheaper to buy pleather online. (I also feel a bit like a murderer while wearing my Merrill costume with the real leather and rabbit fur :S)
Finished styling my Sera wig so I decided to have a quick makeup test. I bought the wig when the only thing we had to go by were the concept art and the first trailer with the brief shot of her. If her hair is darker in-game, I’ll dye the wig darker or buy an entire new one to style.
I’m ill with a cough/cold right now so I’m a bit more flushed than I normally am. I also need better kohl to make the eyes pop out better and an actual nude lipstick.
Found my Usagi wig! Obviously isn’t the best thing ever but it’s okay for now. Now I just need to find blonde hair nets to make sure the hair buns will be secure and not frizz! Do dollar stores still carry those??
I’m having flashbacks of the nightmare I had with the leatherworking I had to do for my Merrill costume. That costume actually killed my sewing machine. This better be easier or so help me.
Heck yeah, I have sufficient refs to work on my Sera cosplay now! (Thank you Bioware for hi-res close up beauty)
Green plaid pants though??!
I was SO glad when I saw the above quote. I think I’m going to like her a lot. I started my Merrill costume before DA:II was released and ended up loving her character, and I’m really happy that Sera will probably end up the same way, haha.
I really, really want to organize a Dragon Age group for Edmonton Expo this year! I just think it would be so cool to have a bunch of Dragon Age people running around together (and potential photoshoot oportunities woop!)
I want to try to see if I can get my sister to fit my Merrill costume since she wants to join me but I made that custom bodysuit to my measurements (top heavy, small hips, 158cm) and she’s a glorious amazon (small chest, wide hips, 170cm). I think that might not be in the realm of possibilities. Maybe I can make her a simple outfit like one of the many mage dresses or artwork!Tabris? Maybe Velanna so we could share the costume!!
For some reason today, I got really nostalgic over my second ever cosplay. Philia Felice, Tales of Destiny. I made this forever and a half ago and thank god my skills have improved since.
It’s really embarrassing to look at, but at the same time I’m really proud of my past self for how well the belt turned out as well as my first try with applique! (and fabric dye but that never turns out well for me)
I’m thinking about remaking this costume again. I’ll actually be able to do it proper too, haha.
