Lunar Silver Star Story - Royce by HoodedWoman Lunar Silver Star Story - Royce by HoodedWoman
So, this was my big costume I was extremely excited for at AFO 2012. Royce has been a character I've loved since I first played Lunar! Though I never had a Sega Saturn I eventually got to plau my first Lunar on Playstation and then again later for added story on the DS.

I made this costume make sure I was covered correctly and to try and keep it as close as possible to the references.

The top is made of canvas or duck cloth. I made it wrap around the back and used fashion tape to hold it in place. I made some simple bias and sewed it on for the detailing. The black portion of the top is stretch poplin that I sewed and turned. The top strap connects to the bottom strap by a fold on the bottom.

The skirt is also the same stretch poplin as the I wanted to be able to move! The wrap was another, double layered, piece that I sewed and turned only this one was a little larger. It wraps around my foot and attaches to the skirt underneath.

The cape was draped fabric that I attached a collar too. The collar has heavy duty sew-in interfacing to give it that "pop-up evil" look.

The shoes are stand ins...since the Vile Tribe travels Lunar barefoot! LOL

The bracelets are foamie...simple but worked. Over-all I'm very happy with my final results and thankful for my friends helping me accomplish one of my all time favorite gals!

Man, you got a lot of guts pulling off a costume like that.  Royce ain't known for her sense of decency.

Still, it looks great.  You captured details that went into her.  I don't know why I liked Royce so much, either.  She's not well developed , not meant to be likable.  Maybe it's the fact she knows she's an evil bitch and has fun with it every step of the way.  Makes her good at what she does and command a lot of attention.

Right? She really is just evil to the core, from beginning to end.

I think I came to love her because of my attachment to Nash and through his attachment to her...even if it was in an evil way. Something about her just always drew me to the character. 

Thank you for the kind comment! It was a dream of mine to one day have the complete Vile Tribe sisters, so this costume was definitely a labor of love....revealing or not. XP

Question: May I ask, out of curiosity, how did you get your top to stay on your chest?
HoodedWoman Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
I actually got asked that in person. Fashion tape, a cosplayers best friend.

Ah! I'm glad to know that question wasn't out of line. Thank you for answering!:love: 1 more thin. Is fashion tape uncomfortable?
HoodedWoman Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
It can be, yes. It really just depends on the weather. If its hot it typically wears off faster which can make it slide and/or not as effective. Though like most adhesives, they're just bad once you have to remove them. :) lol

Ouch! I'm sorry to hear that. It reminds me of the 1 time when I was 8 & my cousin dared me to put duct tape on my eyebrow. Long story short, it hurt like hell, nut I made $20 out of it. But anyway, this costume looks very nice on you!!!
