Cosplaying from Dragon Quest is my favorite thing to do! Here is me as Bianca and my friend Lily aka Phavorianne as Flora from Dragon Quest V. We made these costumes for a skit we did in a group at Anime Expo 2011, but this was the first time we got proper daytime photos of them! I’m very happy with the results, and it was a ton of fun. We’ll have to reunite with our hero and slime knight from 3 years ago for more photos soon. :)
Anime Los Angeles 2014 was Love Live Con for me. I brought four costumes but only ended up wearing my two new Love Live outfits instead! On Friday I wore my schoolgirl version Rin Hoshizora, with Sparkle Pipsi as Honoka, Tristen Citrine as Nozomi, and NyuNyu Cosplay as Nico. It was super fun precursor to our super idol Saturday. <3
Sometime soon I will post our full 9 girl Snow Halation group from Saturday!!
~* Love Live! Skirt Tutorial *~
Hey guys~! I put this little guide together for anyone interested in making their own uniform from Love Live! School Idol Project :D! I designed the fabric for the skirts, but since I designed it for a very specific size pleat so I wanted to make a guide to go along with the fabric ~
The fabric for the skirt is available for purchase on spoonflower.com~!
I will also be putting up a bow tutorial (eventually =w=; ) but in the meantime, if you’re interested in purchasing a pre-made one I have them available in my store~!
I realize this is a pretty niche tutorial, but I just really wanna spread the aidoru love to my fellow Love Live fans ~ I seriously love this series sooooo much ;w;!! I hope this is helpful, and have fun cosplaying <3!! Maybe we can even get pics together ~ LOVE LIVES ;w;
Thank you so much! Sorry, I just saw this! I bought the fabrics for it at least two years ago so I don’t remember what they were called. They were both very stretchy to get her leotard look, and I believe the fabric I used for the bottom piece was actually swimsuit material. As for the wig, I used a long curly wig in teal and pinned it up around the crown/headband to make the afro-ish look she has. :) Does that help at all?
I’m listing one of my Saber cosplays up for charity on eBay.
100% goes to the Typhoon relief effort in the Philippines.
Even though I’m very attached to all the cosplays I make for Saber and wouldn’t normally sell them, this is very much worth it to me. During the horrible flooding last year, we managed to raise quite a lot through auctions ($467!) I hope this can surpass that total. My heart goes out to everyone there effected by this disaster.
Please consider bidding.

I really love EVA. I wanted to cosplay her since I first tried out the game years ago. Someday I’ll get photos with a Snake, even if it’s not MGS3 Snake!
You guys I think I like cosplaying from Dragon Quest. Looking at this image, it seems like I should fill in the missing piece and cosplay from VI next… but I think my next DQ cosplay might be from III. :x

My newest costume, Aira from Dragon Quest VII. :) Photo taken at Tokyo Game Show 2013 by Rhythmsift @ Videogamr.de!
This costume has been a dream of mine since I first played Dragon Quest VII (as Dragon Warrior VII) back in 2001. With the 3DS remake this year, it felt like the perfect time to get it done, and to wear it for the first time in Japan no less!
This costume was deceptively tricky, with the “battle bra” bustier taking 3 tries/patterns, but overall wasn’t too hard. I’m hoping to get some full body photos someday soon, as well as eventually making/getting a sword. TGS has strict prop rules so I didn’t bother with making a sword for her debut. I also didn’t wear it all that long at TGS because it was super hot that Sunday and the costume is entirely faux leather and suede! Oops.
I’m really happy to have finished this costume, but man — talk about the obscurest of the obscure character wise. Not even all DQ fans know this character!
Yes! It’s been on my wish list for a long time. That said, there are at least 3 other character designs from Dragon Quest that I want to make first. I’m working on Aira from VII now!
I know that they’re from the same series! Don’t worry! I wrote that Saber was from Carnival Phantasm on that photo’s caption because that’s where the maid costume she was wearing comes from. :) I guess I should’ve been more clear.
