Wizard - Granado Espada II by yayacosplay Wizard - Granado Espada II by yayacosplay

Full body shots 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, the belt thing, and the feathered sleeve caps. A lot of design elements that were simple drawn lines for the artist became time consuming hand stitching and fiddling for me, the cosplayer lol. I must have used over 20 yards of rattail trim alone on this costume lol.

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 JLinto for walking over to the beautiful Sheraton pool with me for these shots.

The only thing I can say is this: How can you not be a major movie star?!?!?!?!?!? Your are absolutely stunning and make 99% of the current "stars" look like they should play second banana to you. Your grace, beauty and fearlessness of taking a role or anime and making it your own are astounding. You a simply absolutely divine in the truest sense of the world. Thank you for being you.
