I LOVE VELVET. I LOVE costumes that give me an excuse to use velvet.

Fighting games tend to be my video game of choice, though I'm beginning to like RPG's. I was a major Tekken fan girl for a while and then became a fan of Soul Calibur. I think I like both equally now, but I'm more well versed on Tekken (why did they have to take away Yoshimitsu's sword!)

 I saw the screens for SC4 and LOVED Cassandra. So I set to work. Not long after I wore the costume the first time, I finally found back screenshots. So I ripped the back out of the costume completely and redid it adding a keyhole (that no one can ever see) and the design on there. All the designs are ironed on (another thing that I had to redo because I burned it). If it's not velvet, it's satin. Eventually I'll get the boots to stay up so I can wear it more.

Have I mentioned yet that I'm the George Costanza of cosplay: if I could wrap myself in velvet, I would do it.
