Tales of Berseria
Bought in 2018, worn 2018 to present
Tales of Berseria and I have a complicated relationship in the beginning. When I first saw pictures of the characters, I was pretty unenthusiastic. I didn’t like Velvet’s in particular, and I also loathed Magilou’s and Rokurou’s. I’ve since come around to the outfits after playing the game; they really do fit the characters. But I’ve always loved the design of the exorcists’ clothes, because they’re so gorgeous!
I purchased this costume from FM-Anime. However, it didn’t come with the shoes or leg pieces, so I made those, drafting them from scratch after classic jodhpurs. Many classic military pants also use the jodhpur style, so it gave me a new perspective on the church in Tales of Berseria. The gold designs are iron-on vinyl designs that I patterned and cut out.
I also assembled the hair pieces for Eleanor’s hair. I bought kanzashi-style accessories from this Etsy seller and added the strips of fabric with writing on it. They clip into the wig.
Speaking of the wig, it’s a Chibi wig from Arda Wigs in Salmon. I think this color is perfect for Eleanor, because it’s a pinky-orange color. Because I have a small head, I purchased it in the small cap size, but I think this color has since been discontinued from that style.
