SC4 XiangHua cosplay by Shiya SC4 XiangHua cosplay by Shiya
OF all the AX costumes, I worked the most on this one~ Also the hardest too.

I made too many trips to Fashion District because I always forgot to buy something., or I didn't have enough of something.

Fabric is a somewhat shiny brocade with floral designs. The purple is dyed with RIT, and the green was sponged on with Jaquard paint. This is my favorite paint ever~ Also used to paint the design for Cross Edge Etna. Trim was somewhat expensive. I had to dye all of that too to match. I used mostly in-game reference. The Illustration is more blue than purple. Also, the asymmetrical top design is from in-game. I sew on extensions to a scruffy cosworx wig.
Choker piece was made out of sculpy and painted with metalic jaquard paints.

I had to post a picture of the back design. It took me three hours to paint with the metalics. I was going crazy trying to analyze her back design forever. I tried to copy what I could down onto the back. But a lot of the details were super tiny.

I'm not wearing my earrings in these pictures. When I changed out of XiangHua into Liddell, somewhere in that time period, my earrings got stolen. So any pictures I have in them were before 2pm. @__@

Sleeves were not very fun. Most hateful to make. I also tried to sew in wiring to make the sleeves stand out more.

I love your Xianghua costume, did you use a pattern for your outfit or did you made it up?
