Saber Cosplay by thatbloodypirate Saber Cosplay by thatbloodypirate
I look like I'm sad in this photo! Anyway, I somehow managed to get this costume done in time for Nebraskon. I wish I had been able to start the armor at least before the con, but I'm thrilled to have completed what I did. *Lisanders was kind enough to snap a couple of photos for me in spite of him not feeling well that evening; however, we'll be doing a proper photoshoot once he is up for it.

I can't begin to describe how frustrating making this costume was. It seemed like whenever I took a step forward, I took two steps back. The gold ovals on the bottom of the white dress are hand embroidered on. The wig is a bit more poofy in the back than I would like, but overall I'm fairly happy with my first major styling. I opted to go for less defined sleeves than shown in the anime, but even those proved to be an interesting experience. Since this was worn at my last convention of the year, I have not bought the right color of contacts yet, and instead wore my blue ones for now.

sweet! I"m glad that you finally let the wig win ;) lol.

I kinda wish that I went to the fabric store with you last weekend. I dont think that I would have missed anything at home with a bunch of guys yelling at the TV over a couple of football games!

The smaller sleeves are cute.

Might I suggest some tweaks?

Sure! I can send you some better pictures of the costume up on the dress form later if you want too. I've been meaning to do that with a few of my costumes. I just have to find my blasted battery charger first.
