After attending ReplayFX con at the convention center downtown, I have decided to wander into the realm of cosplay. I thought for awhile about who to play, and decided on my Newgrounds namesake, Rydia from FF4.
I'm not a very good seamstress, but I have learned through ballet and pointe shoes, as well as costume repair. What I'll do is start with some basic parts, like a green leotard and V-shaped fingerless gloves, and modify the costume from there. I'm getting excited about this, actually. I'll also be learning more advanced sewing along the way. My mom, a retired home ec teacher, has offered to give me one of her old sewing machines so I can learn.
Wish me luck!
