Wizard - Granado Espada I by yayacosplay Wizard - Granado Espada I by yayacosplay
*********** Yaya on Facebook [link] ***********

Close up of the Female Wizard costume I busted butt on for Dragoncon 2010. From the video game "Granado Espada", the character design for the Wizard was the first image I saw from the game and it immediately drew me in. I've been planning to make that outfit for a few years and when I had a month to craft and sew before Dragoncon, I decided to just go for it.

Reference artwork from the game: [link]

This costume and the Ame-Comi Wonder Woman definitely took up most of my time in those 4 weeks. The Wizard has a lot of weird bits and pieces to the design and while looking at the reference, I kept discovering more details O_o. It was a fun and interesting project to work on but also frustrating at times. Lots of hand sewing and unconventional crafting involved, such as the necklace/choker thing.

I still have a few tiny details to tweak and add for a future con but it got done enough to be wearable at Dragoncon so yay.

Thank you Anna Fisher for the lovely portrait shot.

See now THIS is the comment I was expecting. While all the others are correct(it is a very nice costume that I can tell you put work into and yes, you are quite stunning), we're all thinking this.
Thanks Sukine-Kira.
So yeah.

I apologize for not favoriting a work of yours until now. I have no idea as to why I had not... considering my opinion of you and your artistry.

Perhaps it is because I might end up favoriting over a hundred...

Wow, Yaya! Both images are amazing! :faint: It's like the video character just came to life! You are so very talented. You should contact Espada and perhaps you can cos-play for their next con or show. To bad you cannot find the Korean artist that did the original, I'm sure they would be both stunned and honored at seeing their creation recreated in such stunning detail.

I just had to ask how you did the flower pedals? Did you use Tulip fabric paint for the detail? And what is the actual pink material?

Very cool! My wife and I both love your work and we both hope to start on the road to cosplay:) . Your an inspiration!
