Tales of Symphonia 2 was kind of a disappointment for me, but the moment I saw Aster, the first thought that popped into my mind was "I want to make that coat". Haha. I had most of the material I needed to make the costume, so I figured, why not? It was simple enough, and I think it came out decently. I made the sleeves a bit tighter than I wanted to, but it's not the end of the world.

The coat was made out of material I had lying around from other costumes. I had just enough to be able to get the length I wanted and to fully line it. The black shirt was made out of material I was going to use for another costume, and red bias tape I had conveniently lying around. The black pants were a pair of old leggings, and the boot covers were made of a stretch suiting I believe. The wig was bought off of ebay, and then styled accordingly.
