Series: Record of Lodoss Wars
Debut: Anime Central 2008
When my friend and usual photographer Laura (of
Dreams) suggested that we do Deedlit and Pirotess
costumes this season,
I absolutely jumped to
the call. Lodoss was - like many of us - one of my first
experiences with anime. Ah, good old SciFi channel Saturday
Because I thought, "What the hell, I'll get just a leeeeetle
more use out of those ears and wig, right?" I decided this
costume was a good one to make. It's a simple design, using a
lot of familiar skills. I decided on a corset top for form,
but the skirt is as simple as two pieces of fabric.
The necklace was a particular challenge! I had fortunately
done a study on Egyptian jewelry a few months before beginning this
project, and so applied some of the design techniques to the
necklace. It's constructed with bronze and glass, and is
subsequently very solid. The belt was done with the
same method as the Goddess costume armor. Of course, same wig
and ears from the other costumes.
This costume made its debut at Anime Central 2008.
