replica and design
This is Claves from Eternal Sonata. I made this for Comic-Con Masquerade 2008 and I can easily say that this is the worst costume making experience I've ever had. I just didn't love the character or the game enough to devote as much time as I did to it. Countless hours of painting and glueing and cutting and painting again and cracking paint and painting again and the wig that I couldn't get to curl and the half-design that didn't want to fit and ugh. This costume taught me that I should stick to costumes that I am passionate about. Luckily, I had a blast at San Diego Comic-Con with my Undergrounders, so that helped. :) And I did gain a lot of confidence in the armor/accessories department.
