Posted in the right forum, and with pictures!  Cheesy


Just an obsessed fan with a long summer vacation.  Cheesy  It's still not completely finished (BLAST SCHOOLWORK!!), but I'm getting there, and at least the ankle-length knitting is done.  I think I'm going to have to re-block this, because the ribs are still pulling in... and, well, I want them to be flat!

Also, I'm planning to paint wings on the back for an added splash of cuteness Smiley.  Would this be a problem with sportweight ribbing?  I've never painted on any fabric quite so thick, and I'm concerned it might not look right.

Oh wow.  I've been wanting that since '99, when that game came out.

This makes me really want to put down my hook for a bit and learn to knit.

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!

Hee, thanks everyone!  Blue is my favorite color because it looks good on me Smiley.  And I'm glad I made someone want to learn how to knit!  It seems like every person I tell says "That's awesome, now I want to learn how to knit, too."

Do you know that FFVIII is my favorite and it never even occured to meas a knitter, and even KNOWING that Rinoa's duster/armbands are knitthat, DUR, I could knit her costume?! Now, to my credit, when I first entertained cosplaying as Rinoa years and years ago I didn't know how to knit to save my life.

...But honestly, I'm so dumb.
But you, my friendyou are genius!

It looks beautiful, it really does. Very well done.
Any chance you might feel like sharing how you went about making it? Like, shaping the duster top, specifically. (I'd imagine the rest of it is fairly self-explanitory, albeit monotonous. I'm just interested in hearing what you found that worked best for getting the upper half to shape/drape just right. Oh! And what type of yarn did you use, too?)

That's fantastic! I'm sure this is REALLY simple but I'm a complete beginner, any chance of a pattern to show how you did it?

I <3 stuffies, cute things and anything totally rad.

Add me on messenger if you wanna talk ^.^

That's really cool. I hate video games but used to date someone who played them all the time, and I thought that character was incredibly sexy and cute.

You... bleeping BLEEP BLEEP!

I was going to do that!

No, I'm not cursing you out... we geniouses think alike, eh? :-p

I don't know about painting.  Seems to me it might crack/peel if the fabric stretches.  Can you do sew on a decal thingy?
