Tekken Tag 2 - Alisa - Steel Maiden by etaru Tekken Tag 2 - Alisa - Steel Maiden by etaru
Lionel was a peach and constructed me the jetpack to use for promotional purposes at SDCC for Kotobukiya, and also where I got to meet Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada at the Namco-Bandai panel! Photo here: instagram.com/p/cHh3E2vWPF/

I've been a raving Tekken fan since Tekken 2, so it was really about time I finally made another costume from my most beloved arcade fighting game. I love this outfit so much! I knew I had to make it after I saw the Bishoujo figure released and even pre-ordered it to have the best reference possible, because I honestly found her default outfit repulsive.

As usual with costumes I adore, I go above and beyond what's really necessary, and Alisa was no exception. The duster, sleeves and choker were all made out of dupioni silk I hand dyed in hot and cold vats, which was a lot of fun! The duster itself was patterned and tailored by me, mostly with draping on the dress form.
The wig was also colored by hand weft by weft, which I don't relish doing again. I kept her left curls loose and fresh because they appear to not be in a tight curl in the figure version; the boots were altered, and socks purchased from Sock Dreams and also hand dyed.
There are a lot of little details all over the costume that generally get overlooked like the gorgeous rhinestone butterfly pin, lace and silk covered bra, embellished roses, and blinged out belt.

** I will likely be offering Alisa cosplay prints this fall, please let me know if you are interested and what images you'd like to see made available! **

The jet pack on the back really makes this one stand out.
