Yes...i'm in a Dress...and yes, this is my first Female cosplay that i've put up on my DA...and i figured what better costume to debut my female cosplay on my site than this one. Lia de Beaumont from Le Chevalier d'Éon (Manga) :heart:

I have admired both Lia and Deon when i first got into the series, and although i feel more comfortable cosplaying males( a part of this has to do with their personality)... Lia has a strong, loyal, honest and pure personality which i can respect and i hold high in my own morals and values. So i decided to do her....but not in her male costume ;)

I wanted to challenge myself to create a wonderful period dress and when Aly and I decided to do this series last year, we wanted to go with costumes that hadn't been done very much - the design of the manga cover - [link]

The manga art is so amazing, and detailed...AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE...almost ^^; but with blood, sweat, tears, money, study&research, support and advice - it was created! For a basic introduction to what i used -
18 meters of Red Silk dupion, 18 meters of beads, 65 meters of lace...and so much more~~~~~


There were many ppl that supported me thorugh this journey like one-san *FataleKnights and otouto-chan
=GoldGlorfindel I LUV U GUYZ!!!!

I must say a huge thankyou to :iconkawaiimon: and :iconclamwings: These two women are two of the most talented, creative and kind-hearted people i have had the joy of knowing in my life. Without these two, i would have crumbled and tripped up - but they were there to give me a hand to stand on my own two feet.

This costume was way out of my comfort zone - but you know what - learning new techniques and trying things you've only seen before can be fruitful sometimes - and i have become more confident in my costumes, and am excited to take the next step and learn more to create costumes that myself as a fan of the characters that i cosplay, would be happy to see!


As for the costume - The progress pics of my costume is on our team DA - :iconhausofsmex:

Here are a few of them below:



If you have questions about the question, pls feel free to note me ^_^
