And here it is…the full, finished piece. My pièce de résistance.
What I started at the beginning of February has finally come to a close. Definitely the longest I’ve spent on any costume. Every bead hand sewn. Every piece of gold bullion hand cut and sewn. Everything patterned by me.
It might not be perfect in a couple small spots, but I am so in love with it. I can’t wait to get my wig and makeup on.
So few people cosplay Faramir, and even fewer do the coronation look. Most just sew on a pre-made trim, and for damn good reason!! I say “most” like I’ve seen more than like two cosplayers with this costume, but I’m so happy to be a part of that small group and to portray Faramir and to try to do this costume justice. He deserves so much more love!
