Ragnarok Online - Female Mage

Female Mage

Worn at: Anime North 2004, CNAnime 2005

I've never played RO...I just like the designs. *lol*

The skirt, boots and capelet are fake suede that I quilted (and you can't even see the quilting on the skirt in most pics...;__;). It took quite awhile, as I'm stupidly anal and even quilted the parts that no-one will ever see. The boots have hand-sewn satin applique and I'm very proud of them. ^_^

The gloves are hand-sewn from the same fake suede as the loincloth...which isn't stretchy and frays terribly. This experience taught me to never make gloves from fabric that: a) isn't stretchy, and b) frays terribly. -.-;;;

The staff topper is sheet brass, cut out veeeery slowly with my trusty jeweller's saw. The centre is two resin jewels. The staff part is a broom handle that I carved to taper at the end, with Paperclay detailing.

The wig isn't as dark as it should be despite 3 bottles of wig dye, but overall I was pretty happy with the costume.
