Hey all!
I just finished my latest cosplay costume, Reisz from the video game Seiken Densetsu 3!

I made the dress using draping techniques. It is fully lined and zips up the back.

The shoulder armor is made of fake carvable pumpkins from Jo-Anns that I cut in half and sanded until it was smooth, then covered in a layer of paperclay for more smoothness and then made decorative lines in hot glue. The edges of the shoulder armor is a couple layers of foamie covered in spandex and square mirrors. They pin onto my shoulder straps so I can remove them easily.

The gloves are made from the Vogue glove pattern. I found the pattern unclear and annoying. They had to be handsewn due to the 1/8" seam allowences, and the finger gussets werent marked correctly on the pattern pieces.

The boots are covers I made using the boot cover tutorial found on Love Meeko's site. They were so easy to do, I love them!

The wig is an Ivy wig from cosworx.com in seafoam green. I sprayed the bangs out a big to give it some volume. The "ears" are made of the same fabric as the dress and boots, but with layers of foamies in them to make them stand out. The ears are sewn into the wig.

The lance blade is made of a layer of foamcore with foamies to build up dimension, and then all covered in paperclay, sanded and painted. It's not perfect, but it's my first "real" prop, and I'm super happy with it!

And the reference sprite!
