Christmas Urd - Ah My Goddess by yayacosplay Christmas Urd - Ah My Goddess by yayacosplay

LOL this costume. I had a long weekend over Christmas with not much to do so I decided to pull together two new costumes with fabric that I had laying around at home. Whilst gathering materials from my several fabric bins, I realized just how much unused treasure I still have!

This cosplay is of Urd, from the classic anime Ah! My Goddess. Many anime girls have little Christmas outfits and I already had the wig for Urd (I've been planning another costume of hers for a while). The design is based on an outfit Urd wears in one of the episodes, but I changed it a little bit to fit my taste in fashion and shape. For example, the neck bow in the design is green and ack I really dislike the green/red color combo, so I changed it to red. And I made flare sleeves instead of gloves because I often have to handle money and sign things at cons, so gloves would have been annoying.
100% of the materials were found at home - the red velour is left over from my Scarlet Witch cape (I loved being able to use up all the scrap!) and the white fur was acquired at a clearance sale ages ago. I even had the boots already from another sale.
Costume constructed in a day over Christmas weekend (after much lint rolling the excess fur off the velour). I made a self-lined corset, top stitched and reinforced, with boning and eyelets for lace up, drafted a pattern for a three panel skirt and flare sleevelets. I also made a matching Santa hat and hand stitched the fur trim onto all the hems.

Even if the costume looks well done, you didn't fit the character at all.

It's not often you see someone get both the costume and the body for a character, but in this case, I think we have ourselves a winner. That's pretty excellent.

Hi gorgeus, can you add a close up of your eyes in the photo #2.
A jade costume of mortal kombat is a very nice costume.

Good luck. =D

I saw this outfit at Ikkicon, it's absolutely stunning! I knew you made all your outfits yourself and the photos are gorgeous, but when I saw this in person it gave me a whole new appreciation for your costumes. Hopefully someday I'll be as good as you at sewing, but it's going to take a LOT of practice!

This is honestly one of the best Urd cosplays I have ever seen. It is as if the AMG manga came to life. Iam looking forward to your cosplays with your friends.
