Leafa

 

 

 

Kirigaya.Suguha.full.1331083

Series: Sword Art Online

Worn at: Anime Boston 2013, Colossal Con 2013

Motivation: I ended up marathoning this series in one weekend and could not get over how much I liked Leafa’s designs and personality.

Construction: There are a tone of little things that go into this costume. I started with the main dress constructing a corset style with spiral steel boning with an attached skirt lined in holographic organza. The jacket is a princess seam with attached forearms. My shorts are fitted with a zipper fly in the back made from the same material as  the knee socks. The ver corset is a textured mole skin lined in green cotton with flat steel boning and a zipper in the side.

Thoughts: I greatly underestimated this costume, every time I thought I was getting close to the finish line I would find more small details to add.
