Last year, Amy and her husband Jeff came to me with a request to do the FFT White Mage and Laguna Loire’s cosplay. This year they tasked me with creating the Time Mage for Jeff. I already have Jeff’s basic measurements, so I got to work right away. The time mage like a bazillion stars, which is not a hard task. But then after looking at the design sketch for a bit, I get the feeling that this needs to have a very hand crafted feel to it. Almost like a heirloom quality. So instead of cutting out stars, I cut out various sizes of Triangles and Pentagons that made up the different sizes of stars. I also come to the conclusion that the time mage costume is a pant suit, caplet, black Habit, and the pointy hat.
Here are the panels with freshly sewn stars! I love this heirloom stitch on my machine and I want to use it more on my future cosplays.
Here is my reference:
