Velvet Princess of Valentine by Dessi-Desu Velvet Princess of Valentine by Dessi-Desu
My friend wanted to cosplay as Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere, so I decided to tag along as Velvet. I adore Velvet's design. It's so alluring and cute at the same time!

I love this photo of my full costume!

Series: Odin Sphere
Character:Velvet

Taken at Otakon 2010

I think the background is not the greatest of all, we could have a forest of sort, but all of this picture is basically pure magic, haha.

Really nice cosplay!

Thanks! Unfortunately, Otakon isn't as scenic as a convention like Katsucon, so finding appropriate backgrounds in the Baltimore harbor area is rather limiting. I'm currently waiting on a new batch of Velvet pictures with more appropriate scenery for Velvet's character : ]

Oh I do comprehend then, and given how awesome the model is, next time will just be a matter of setting.

Take care of yourself and keep up the good work :)

This is an amazing Velvet! The skirt is a little awkward, if it is as flowy as velvet's I wish there was some wind to set it adrift behind you. Besides that, you are soooo beautiful!

Thanks! :) Velvet's skirt is the one thing cosplay-wise that can't really translate well into real life and I've noticed it in other Velvet cosplays too. The concept artists most likely exaggerated the flow of her skirt to make the silhouette of her design more active in the game and the artwork because her design is relatively simple compared to the other main characters. Unfortunately, unless you rig the skirt with something inside it, like wire, then you're going to get the limp looking skirts seen on my costume and other Velvet cosplayers : /

Well that's poopy. It's nice that you thought about it though :D George Kamitani is amazing anyway but sometimes so unrealistic that is just can't be translated to real life correctly. As with all things.

Haha, that's the delightful world of character design x_x; I've rigged things with wire before to emulate flowy fabric and it does look really cool (on my Yui cosplay, actually), but when the flap of fabric just happens to be on your butt things can get a bit awkward ^^; Being able to sit is important XD;

Wow, you make such a stunning Velvet!! I love how the gold on your top kind of flares away from the top itself. Also a fan of the fact that you got the strips on the stockings right. It's the little things like this that differential a good costume from a great one, I think. :heart: Love it!

Dessi-Desu Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Aww, thanks! Yeah, I can't tell you how much I hunted and hunted for the right stockings for her >_<; I finally found some with the right thickness for the stripes, but not in the proper color. I ended up buying them and just dying them with i dye poly @_@

Dessi-Desu Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Haha, I was up until 4 in the morning, so I understand XD Yeah, i dye poly is very helpful, if you're in a bind with synthetic fabrics. The only synthetics it won't work on are heat sensitive fabrics like spandex because you have to place your fabric in a boiling dye bath x_x

That was actually pretty tricky because all the thigh highs I found were chunkier stripes. My friend directed me to this site [link] I actually had to dye mine with some i dye poly because they don't come in black with black stripes.
