Tharja – Fire Emblem: Awakening

By NeoqueenAdmin, March 1, 2014

Generally I stray away from cosplay that reveals ‘too much’. I like being modest; it is important to me. But Ceratopian recruited me to do Tharja because she loved Nowi, and their support was really cute, so I decided to just do it. I agreed to cosplay her before I had actually started Fire Emblem: Awakening, but once I played it and recruited Tharja to my side, I really enjoyed her character. Alot. I tend to lean towards characters who have a dark side, and Tharja is definitely one of them.

Admittedly I felt like the moe Naga the White Serpent clone in the Slayers OVA episode where Lina and Naga’s clones are the opposite personalities of the originals. Naga’s clone is super embarrassed to be seen wearing that revealing outfit and covers herself in her cloak. That was kind of me with my cloak walking around Katsucon in Tharja cosplay.

FE:A CosplayThe outfit was pretty simple; bikini top, fundoshi like bottom, cape and accessories. I was really lucky to find the right styled shoes that were a close color match too. The hardest part was finding a seamless nylon body stocking; most seamless stockings are made from fishnet, and I did not want that. Someone actually ended up finding this body stocking for me on an asian site. I was super grateful because I had had absolutely not luck finding it on my own! TT_TT Unfortunately it got a big hole right on my panty line at con! And as I walked the con it just got larger and larger. I am rethinking the body stocking options.

I really enjoyed FE:A and want to cosplay my favorite character, Panne. I think I recruited Cera to cosplay Cordelia, because I really love their support. So cute! And if I can find a guy to rope into my next FE:A shenanigans, Giaus.
