Rose - The Legend of Dragoon
Debut: Katsucon 2015
Rose is one of those characters that really sticks with you. Her story is of loss and bitter patience, and she becomes the thing of nightmares only to find redemption at the end of her journey. I'd wanted to make Rose for a very long time, but I couldn't find the fabric I wanted until just a few years ago. I ended up making Rose this February because a friend of mine was coming to Katsucon with her Dart costume and I really wanted to join her!
The entire costume is made from a deep purple microsuede with gold scaley vinyl trim and decor. The shoulder pauldrons and headband/horns are made from foam, fabric, and Worbla. The breatplate and back plates are both craft foam with fabric overlays. I used a purple knit fabric for the glove palms and gussets, but still used the microsuede for the glove backs to match the outfit. I already owned the wig, and of course the scowling face! This costume was a little dream come true for me and I can't wait to wear Rose with some more Dragoons!
