Erza from Fairy Tail Cosplay
Tutorial: How to Make Erza
Erza is my favorite character from Fairy Tail. She's strong, resilient, and so strict that it's funny. I feel that I can identify with her because sometimes I'm very strict and bossy too. I'm also a die hard JellalxErza shipper (but have yet to found my Jellal cosplayer).
Wig ($17) - Ebay. It was the cheapest long red wig there. I trimmed the back and bangs.
Top ($4) - Athletic tape. This was really uncomfortable and my boobs felt like they were gonna pop out any moment. I need to use Ace bandages next time.
Regular pants pattern. I cut out the yellow flames from yellow fabric, pinned it to the red pants, and then sewed black bias tape on.
Contacts - Dolly+ Grey (same as Vivi's)
Tattoo ($6) - Funimation tattoo set
I borrowed the swords from a friend.
Total Cost: $41
Debut: A-Kon 2012 in Dallas, TX
