Water Sylph

My Own Concept

hours spent:

First Worn to:
Sugoicon 2007

Why I did this cosplay:
My real name means "of the sea". I thought this kind of costume would be a great addition. Also I've had the thought of doing a mermaid because of the Little Mermaid stories... soo many cool things but I definitely wanted to do something with seashells.

I started out with two yards of stretch polyester fabric. I used the majority of it to fit myself in a tube like sock to make the fins. I used multiple seashells and glass beads to create a sea glass feel.

Anything else?
Because of my mom stretching out the fabric... it started to run.. but this concept is still incomplete to my standards.

I didn't get any pictures at the con! ARGH! So there is no proof that I wore it there.
