Character Name: Lavenza
This happened because I am totally the type of person to cosplay a character that literally appears for 5 hours out of a 110 hour game lol. That and Lavenza is super adorbs.
Dress: I'm not super sure what types of fabric the dress was made out of. They both kind of look and feel like ponte di roma, but I
have no idea what they actually are. Anyway, trying to get the proportions and the seams on this dress right was a bit of a challenge. I
first tried frankensteining an existing dress pattern before deciding that patterning it from scratch would be easier. The dress was made in
two parts. The black turtleneck part and the blue dress were made as two individual pieces and were then hand sewn together. The four front
buttons were made using the blue fabric and worbla scraps. They were then sewn to the dress. The Velvet Room logo was painted on.
The wig is a Silky Luthien in Bleach Blonde. The wig was straightened and trimmed.
The book was built out of foam board, craft foam, and worbla. The challenge to this was that I wanted to make it openable and sturdy enough that I could put all my stuff in it as an alternative to carrying a purse with me all day. The base that would make up the inside of the book was made out of foam board. The outside of the foam board base was also covered in worbla that was scored to make it look more like pages of a book.The cover was made out of craft foam and the beveled detailing on the cover was done using a combination of craft foam and worbla scraps. The cover was then covered in worbla. Everything was painted, and then the base and the cover were then glued together.
