FFXIII: Oerba Yun Fang by Ai-rika FFXIII: Oerba Yun Fang by Ai-rika
"OERBA GET WHAT OERBA WANTTTT."
Sums up how I felt walking around in this cosplay because Fang is such a boss and I love her so much ;A;

Anyway, on Friday morning of Sakura-con, I whipped out Fang without telling most people I was going to cosplay her. Good times. I have way too much to say about this cosplay for a deviation so I'll just leave it for my journal XD;



Thanks to :iconboogiefunk: for my makeup <3
Thanks to :iconheimdall-san: and :iconsatsori: for staying up with me till 3 AM every night of Spring Break rooting me with manly words.

Wow, nice cosplay. Cute belly button in a not as weird thing. I did want to say "in a not weird way." But no it is rather unusual. Lol seriously though, nice cosplay. Do you design them yourself? If so, good on you, mate.

By the way, I was curious, how long does it usaully take to put a costume together.The last costume I ever wore was for Halloween and I had to find bits and pieces to put it together since I can't sew.

It varies per costume, but this with the lance took a couple weeks because I also work and go to school >_<

It shows. I tried to sew something for a Halloween costume for a character, once. Couldn't do it. Was wondering if all of the costume was put together by,or was there any thing you had to go out to buy for it.

No problem!! I'd love to learn from you!! Are you going to next years Fanime Con?
I don't mean to be informal but I'd love to meet you! :blush: Would you mind showing me how you put your awesome stuff together? You're prop making skills are matched only by your sewing skills! You're truly amazing! What are you going to be cosplaying next year?
I LOVE how natural you look in your photos!
I'll probably be wearing my kunoichi OC! (completed hopefully by then) (Please pardon my noobishness!! This is my very first cosplay attempt! lol ^^; :blush:)

One of the most badass cosplays I've ever seen.

I'm totally showing this to everyone who says that all cosplayers are fat and ugly. Because neither of those adjectives apply here. At all. -loses vocabulary and abuses the fave button-

Thank you so much! We hope that we can somewhat pull them off. We are still working on the costumes for a photoshoot this weekend, so they are going to be a little rushed. Nervous!

asflkasdugoasok;dhga awesome Fang! )__)

I have a question since I aim to cosplay as Fang soon... how many yds of blue fabric did you use for her sari, and is it in two separate pieces?

Also, what is your belt made out of?
Aaand... what is your spear wrapped in to give it that woven look? @__@ Uh-mazing.

Ahh thank you for your tiem!
Reply
:iconai-rika:
Ai-rika Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010
Thank youso much <333
and yes, as for the sari I used two seperate pieces, those two together totalled to about 8 yards. I recommend getting more since I think mine ended up too short >3< depends on everyone's height though so it varies)
And my belt is made of piping I glued together, alot of people have used other methods which i think are better but thats what I did XD; And then the woven part of the spear is fabric I attached to it and painted the same color ^^

I hope this helps and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask. Show me when you finish :D
