Meru III by Dessi-Desu Meru III by Dessi-Desu
Character: Meru
Series: Legend of Dragoon
Photo taken by LJinto at Katsucon 2012

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, faux 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.

The second time I wore this costume at Katsucon I had my giant hammer prop, which made this costume more fun to wear. The head of the hammer is lightweight and made out of corrugated cardboard, expanding foam, paper mache. Paper mache and craft foam were used for the raised details.

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

Amazing Meru! The detail on the costume and the hammer are phenomenal :D
I am currently replaying that game and I have this urge to Cosplay as Shana and convince my brother and friend to go as Dart and Albert to either Katsucon or Otakon

Hello, do you take Meru commissions? I am going to cosplay Meru and was actually looking for reference pictures for a possible commissioner.
