Beautiful Sorceress Lina by WindoftheStars Beautiful Sorceress Lina by WindoftheStars
A nice full shot of most of the costume. I'm so happy to have been able to finally do this.

So construction notes...
As always everything was made by and worn by me. The armor is one of my favorite parts of the costumes. It took a good week to make and has a cool paint job to it that makes it change colors in different lighting. Every single gem on the costume was casted too. Some were casted multiple times due to me being an idiot. lol. But the casted resin gems give the costumes something special that you can't do with opaque paint. My dagger, not really shown here, was made by bf and it looks really awesome!

Overall this is one of my comfiest and fun-est costumes to wear. I'm still surprised that so many people recognize such an old school character, but I guess the classics are classics for a reason!!

Viva la Slayers!! XXD

Lina Inverse is indeed an old school character, but one of most complete I have seen.

And Your impression of her is superb. Even the flat chested look.... Yeah, I know Lina would beat me raw if she would hear that.

I'm really surprised how much work people can put in a cosplay. Does a cosplay include also other things than making clothes? A role play games or something maybe?

Regards, me.

Thanks! We don't do any role playing but some of us do perform in the costume. Go on stage and do a skit or something. I did one with some friends back in 08; you can watch it here: [link]

Hah... Amazing. I suspect that quite a lot of work was involved. And result was good and kept in coherent style. Well done, looking like an acting was done in this way because of carefully chosen style not just because "we couldn't do it better".

Nice.

I've always wanted to cosplay as Lina, but sadly...I am half hispanic...and that means I have D-cups as far as boob size. But she was always my favorite character.

But this looks amazing. And I'll have to say that you make an amazing Lina Inverse.

Nagha The White Serpent is always an opened option then. This character isn't really that much different than Lina - both are stubborn, aggressive, extremely self confident, starveling and with an unlimited lust for gold and unlimited stomach capacity.

They are just cute in different ways...

Regards, me.

I think if you like the character you should cosplay them regardless of how you look. It should be fun!
