I am trying to get better at posting information about my costumes, so here is my first costume post!

Nausicaa 01 by sashafelicity  Nausicaa 04 by sashafelicity
Nausicaa 02 by sashafelicity  Nausicaa 07 by sashafelicity  Nausicaa 06 by sashafelicity  Nausicaa 08 by sashafelicity
Nausicaa 03 by sashafelicity  Nausicaa 05 by sashafelicity  Nausicaa 09 by sashafelicity

I made Nausicaa for NYCC. I have always been a huge Ghibli fan, but I recently read the manga that continues the story of Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, and I fell in love. Nausicaa is my hero :) Its really worth a read!

I based the majority of the costume on her outfit in the manga because I prefer the more detailed tunic over the one from the movie.

Rifle

The handiwork of the amazing and talented MaxTheBird. The almost everything you see is carved from basswood. After she carved it, I painted the wood with a mahogany wood stain. MaxTheBird finished out the details with wood filler and a bit of Sculpey for the loading mechanism (and hot glue dots for the bolts) and then painted on the silver with Rub and Buff. I used an old purse strap for the shoulder strap, attached with wire.

Earrings and Tunic Gem

Sculpted in Sculpey and then painted with nail polish to make it shiny! I originally cast them in resin but resin never set. Yay for last minute substitutes!

Aviator Cap

Started with this pattern: cristophine.deviantart.com/art…
Made a couple of trial versions out of old tshirts until I got it just right with the little peak on the top. I used some thin plastic from a clear plastic box lid for the goggle lens. The buttons are Sculpey (this was my first time making a button hole with my sewing machine!!!!!!!!!!). I made it sorta huge because I ended up getting a wig since I don't have bangs.

Wig

www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013…

Tunic

Modified this pattern: vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki…
I shortened the length - which I regret :( - messed around with the collar until it opened in the front but still stood up straight. I added some strips of fabric into the arm seams and then cut the strips and the bottom of the dress to make the fray. I painted the cut edges with Fray Block, but it left a fairly obvious stain so if you try this, be super light with it. The turtle/bird on the front is applique using silver ironing board fabric! I wrapped some cloth around a tube of chapstick to make the flare cartridge shape... and then I put chapstick in each little pocket! I am so prepared for dry lips!!!

Gloves

www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001…
I sewed some little fabric rectangles to the backs of the hands. That glove material was super thick T_T

Teto

www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A…
I cut tiny little holes into the feet and put a small neodymium magnet in each foot, and then sewed another four into the shoulder of the dress so he stays put when I'm busy :D

Belt and Bag

Belt: www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I…
I can't remember what pattern I used for the bag anymore, but it really didn't turn out the way I wanted anyway. I used a brown felt and another Sculpey button. It was handy to have at conventions tho!

Leggings

Just some white spandex leggings I had lying around from my Amaterasu costume. 

Boots & Boot Covers

Boots are just a dark brown calf high pair I already had. For the boot covers, I used two layers of a really thick suede I had left over from a different costume, and then covered that with the blue fabric to get it stiff enough to stand up around the boot. There is a piece of elastic that runs under the arch with Sculpey buttons on either side of the elastic.

I'm always happy to chat about the costume, so feel free to msg/comment!

Hey hey! I was the BLM from the FFXIV:ARR group that found you at Otakon. Our friend at Morning Addict Photography got back to us with some pretty excellent shots of all four of us from that impromptu terrace photoshoot - I looked you up to make sure you got them as well! He posted them over here.
(As always, you are the best bard! Nice to see you here on dA.)

Thank you so much!!!! I am sorry this was so delayed lol. I've been busy trying to get the bard spruced up for the Fan Fest, and I am foolishly attempting to put together a fem-Hiccup (from How to Train your Dragon 2) for a pet/owner costume competition. Of course, my dog will be Toothless :D We shall see if I ever finish this....

Thank you so much for the link, your friend is amazing! I will go tell him that too right now, haha! Hope to see you again sometime :)

Man, I wish I could go to the Fan Fest this year! Have tons of fun! :D I'm also working on something new at the moment (and also on a time constraint, heh - has to be done before the first weekend in October for AUSA), so I sympathize.
The ACN in our group (Kyue128) and I are both huge HTTYD fans - that costume combination sounds adorable!
