Saber Alter

Series: Fate/Hollow Atraxia

Variation: Battle Dress

Worn at: Acen 2012, Colossal Con 2012

Motivation: The whole fate/stay franchise is just amazing and once I saw the main character turn villain I couldn’t resist. It didn’t help a friend of mine with a ruffly butt was planning on making the characters lolita costume.

Construction: Everything is made with cotton satin and the black and blue layers are two separate dresses. I love the sword and I’ll probably make more for a few friends who want them.  The wig came pre-pony tailed from Arda Wigs with a clip in long pony tail. I turned the tail into the twisted bun then used pieces from the clip in pony tail to make the braid.

Thoughts: I was not supper happy with the outcome of the costume from a craftsmanship stand point, so I have since gone back and redone parts of the sleeves, taken in the under dress and revamped the wig.
