This project was presented at the Montreal Otakuthon Masquerade in 2018 and also at the Dreamhack Masquerade IN 2018. This costume was awarded with « Best Needlework – Master Division » at Otakuthon along with the second place award at the Masquerade of Dreamhack. This costume is a reproduction of an armor set from Aion. All the embroidery was handmade with crochet techniques. This costume is composed of different types of fabric (mainly stretch and woven). To obtain prints on the pauldrons and leggings, an airbrush painting technique for fabric was used. The staff was conceptualised through a complicated process that included mixing different techniques which include base programing, electric circuiting, use of thermoplastics and EVA foam for the structure along with painting techniques using airbrush.
