Oerba Dia Vanille from Final Fantasy XIII

Final Fantasy XIII

This was my very first cosplay! Everything I made by hand sewing, machine sewing, beading, painting, dying and hot gluing, except for the Bangles & Wig! Bead work took the longest and cost the most! Nearly 10 hours straight was spent on beading alone. Any beads I could not find, I made myself using Polymer Clay (including the earrings). Took several months off and on to construct. I wanted to capture her carefree and child like innocence in the photos as well as the daunting attempt to recreate that infamous dancing pose of hers!

I started cosplaying in 2010. What made me start was all the intricate textures/layers/details that you find on your favorite characters. Its amazing how easily you can bring that character to life! Plus who wouldn't want to walk around for a day as someone else?!

I've been very lucky to be apart of two of Ackson Lee's Cosplay videos as well as rank in the top 40 of Otakuhouse's Cosplay Idol 2011. Fans reactions to my cosplays have pushed me to try new challenges with different characters & I look forward to every time I debut an outfit! So thank you for all your support.
