Motivation: I played through this game and was high disappointed in the actually game play but over joyed at the costume and character designs. As soon as I saw Jihl I knew I had to make this costume.
Construction: The coat was made from green vinyl anf lined in black apparel liner. I have painted the silver scroll work and silver bias tape created the coat edging. The pauldrons where foam sheeting heated for form and sealed with glue. The lighting effects were created with EL wires rigged to the pauldrons and edging of the coat with a battery pack hidden in the small of my back.
Thoughts: I loved the end look of this costume with the lighting in the dark. It was a little to hot to ware it for too long but it was perfect for the winter cons.
