Meru II by Dessi-Desu Meru II by Dessi-Desu
Character: Meru
Series: Legend of Dragoon
Photo taken by Anna Fischer at Otakon 2011

This costume has been a dream cosplay of mine, ever since I first played the game, when I was in middle school. I took a great deal of care in considering my material choices, so that they would be reflective of the Legend of Dragoon aesthetic, but also reflect the fact that Meru is a dancer. I used a combination of vinyl, fake leather, and casa satin. All of the details are satin stitched on to create a more polished appearance. This cosplay was my first adventure in learning to satin stitch and I learned quite a bit, while doing it.

I ended up not being very pleased with the red contacts I received in the mail, and thought they were too harsh/fake for a whimsical character like Meru. I found a nicer pair that I plan on ordering. My hammer is also currently in the works, so hopefully next time I wear this cosplay I'll be 100% wingly-fied and be able to vary my poses more : x

Costume can be seen at 2:22 in MLZStudio's Katsucon video [link]

Ya Meru has such a simple and fun design, I knew I liked her even before I played the game! Those are the best outfits like my Dante, the ones you can wear over and over because its easy to run around in and you are proud of it =3

:XD: I forgot she was supposed to be a dancer (I remember seeing one of her additions was cooled "Cool Boogie" or something like that and, as a 90's kid, going a bit :o).

Haha, her being a petite dancer with a giant hammer was one of the things that always appealed to me about her. It's such a ridiculous combination XD;
