Lodoss: Pirotess I by etaru Lodoss: Pirotess I by etaru
*Tasukichan mentioned doing Deedlit, and asked if I'd be interested in Pirotess. I immediately agreed since it's been on my to-do list for years, and with such a cute Deedlit, who could refuse! Being as tan as from the Caribbean was interesting, I look forward to a second run of this outfit to fix the problems I had.

The costume came together a lot quicker than I expected, but not without hiccups. The dress was made out of a heavy vinyl and took me a few days to pattern it, inserting sticky bra cups in order to keep...things...from popping out. My machine dreaded the vinyl so I had to appliqué the gold designs instead of machine stitching like I wanted. The belts were made from pleather, and her armor piece from craft foam and puffy paint. The ears were from, which I painted to a darker shade.
The boots were purchased on Amazon, gloves borrowed from ~beautifully-twisted, wig provided by *Tasukichan, and the headpiece made by *Yunie-chan.
I had some trouble with the tanner around the chest area, combining Sally Hansen and L'Oreal, but it worked out pretty alright for a first wear.

I have a quick question...
You said you used tanner for the skin? Does it come off easily?
For a few costumes I'm doing, I need darker skin(me being an extremely pale never go outside kind of person).

Anyways, beautiful costume! I love the ears! So cute!

OK, I googled it... just out of curiosity...

Anyway, yours is the best of the cosplay that came up. Great work!

Thanks very much. I really love a few versions done of her by friends, I hope I did nearly as good a job.

Meh- I don't think you've got anything to worry about. Yours is top notch!

Yes! Love! I love that you go back to some of the older stuff, all I ever see is newer stuff and some of the best anime's I've seen came out in the 80's and 90's. Rock on chica!

Thank you! I don't keep up with the latest and newest animes often times, so revisiting the classics is the natural alternative lol
Chrystal-Anne-Books Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2011
Yeah, I've watched way more of the classics than some of the newer stuff. I haven't been really impressed with a lot of the newer animes. I'm hoping for a truly awesome series to come out.
