This is so gorgeous. It actually reminds me of that cinematic from the game, where you can only see so much of her face.... Everything about this is so regal and stately. And all with such exquisite detail in your handiwork besides. :D

Just beautiful. :)

I hadn't thought about the cinematic, but now that you mention it, it does remind me of this shot! That is so cool hehe :3
Thank you again for the wonderful compliments! You are too nice~

how did you get the thickness in the front ribboned bangs (I cn't really call them braids) - I've heard of people using foam and fabric... but I'm just curious on your method - they turned out exceptional!

Thank you!
I actually used cotton cording. It's the stuff that people use for making that cylindrical trim on pillows :3 I painted it to match the color of the hair first them covered it and had my friend wrap the ribbon around while I wore the wig~

thats awesome! I'll keep that in mine when I get around to styling my TP wig... do you have any tips? haha :P

RikkuGrape Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012
For the wig? Well, mostly just be patient with it :) I had some trouble getting the braid in the back to cooperate placement/thickness-wise but after a couple tries it all worked out. I think the hardest part was getting those little front-ribbon-pieces to look good without being too thick, but again it just took a few tries to get it right~

If you have any questions about anything else feel free to ask~ :D I love helping people out with cosplays and also seeing how others makes theirs as well :3

So, yeah! Have fun! :D

Still amazing. How long did it take you to make the whole thing? I'm sure you've been asked that millions of times, but I assume it will never stop, so...what's one more.

RikkuGrape Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2012
Haha that's alright~ I don't mind it at all :)

All in all, I spread the whole thing out over a few weeks :3
