FINAL FANTASY XIV
Playing a Summoner in Final Fantasy XIV myself, I simply felt in love with one of the armor sets. Starting in 2016 especially the sewing was a huge challenge. Aside of that, I had to get better in fabric patterning, wig styling, had to learn new ways for armor making and experimented with different sewing techniques. It took me over half a year to complete this costume, but I was extremely satisfied with the result. The costume was a true challenge, but it teached me countless new techniques and helped me to improve my sewing skills immensely. Benni made me an amazing Grimoire and I finally found time for a proper photo-shoot.

Finally finished my Summoner from @ffxiv today! Benni and I begun this project one year ago and after 100 of work hours it's done now! The Summoner helped me to improve my sewing skills and teached me so many new things! But now... I'm just tired and happy, time to sleep! Still need to pack for the Final Fantasy Fanfest tomorrow! Also the final making of video is coming next week!!! #fanfest #finalfantasy #ffxiv #diy #cosplay #ffxiv #ffxivheavensward #costume
Slow but steady progress on my Summoner from FINAL FANTASY XIV Benni and I finished the filming and voice over for the next two tutorials, horns and cat ears. Just need to cut everything now. For the intro I tried at least the first finished costume parts on and already love this super cute outfit! Plus the gigantic Summoner horn is just awesome! I'll publish the videos in the next few days, but first... we'll fly to Sicily for some time of tomorrow! Hope the internet in Italy will be fast enough for the upload! :) #crafting #cosplay #costume #finalfantasy #ffxiv #ffxivarealmreborn #summoner #diy
