Character Name: Ereshkigal
My husband started playing FGO on our way back from Japan at the end of 2018, which lead to me and another friend FOMO start playing too. It took me a little while to get
into it, but watching my husband play through the Babylon arc really got me interested in catching up. Ereshkigal became my fave as soon as she made her story debut (who
doesn't love a Rin-face haha), and I really liked her 3rd ascension outfit, so it was an easy cosplay choice to make.
Construction notes coming soon.
The wig was made using an Arda Luthien SILKY in Custard as the base and Long Clip SILKY in the same colour. The base wig was steamed to flatten most of the curls and the bangs were trimmed and styled. The long clip was spliced in two and re-attached to smaller clips. The two new hair clips were trimmed and then curled at the bottom using a curling iron to blend in better with the rest of the wig.
The cage was made primarily out of worbla. The base was made out of foam circles that I cut out and then covered in worbla. The bars were made out of rolled out worbla that were bent at the top to form the dome and glued to the base. To help make sure I kept a truly circular shape, the horizontal bars were metal rings. What I found out while assembling it all together was that the metal rings wouldn't stick to the worbla at all, so I ended up having to manually stitch the rings to the bars using thread. The detailing on the cage was made out of foam clay and worbla scraps. Finally, the strap made made out of strip of leather painted black, and clipped on with a bag clip.
