Black Mage Pange

I made this costume years ago! I wanted to dress up as a Final Fantasy black mage, but the traditional black mage outfit is frumpy…so I girlified it. I added patches to add to the hobo-chic look, embroidery stitching large hearts. I made the hat to match from scratch. It was probably the hardest part, because I made it entirely out of wire and fabric – no hat base was used at all.

The hat is definitely my favourite part, and it received a lot of details (patches, wiring, ribbon trim, eyelets, twine).

My least favourite part is the neckline. I tried to use this decorative trim as ribbon in the eyelets, but it wasn’t very effective…and there wasn’t time to go buy more twine. I definitely was up late the night before I needed the costume to be completed, rushing to pull it all together.

Material Notes

linen, twine, eyelets, grosgrain ribbon, trim, wire
