Legend of Dragoon - Shana by FireLilyCosplay Legend of Dragoon - Shana by FireLilyCosplay
Photographer: Judith Stephens
Costume made and modeled by me
This photo MAY NOT be used as stock. Please contact the photographer for any permissions.

Yes, I know I am holding the arrow and bending my wrist to do so. I couldn't risk shooting the other cosplayers or photographers nearby while posing this way.

Legend of Dragoon is one of my favorite all time games. The battle system, the story, the music - it's all just perfect. I really wanted to make a Shana cosplay because she's my next favorite female character after Rose.

The costume was pretty easy. I used white linen for the shirt, undershirt, and shorts, with blue linen for the trim. The gloves are made from a brown jersey knit fabric. The boots I already owned, but I added the little strap across the toes. The "ankle capes" are made from tan Whisper Vinyl, backed with brown twill and fastened with buckles and leather straps.

The armor is made from a craft foam base, covered in vinyl, and backed with wire and brown twill. The cincher and collar feature quilting to replicate the look of the "scales" in the reference material. I made the quiver and arrows from scratch, and I purchased the recurve bow ^.^

I'm really happy with this costume, and I wish LoD would get more love. I was pleasantly surprised at how many people actually recognized me, and I'm so lucky to have found a Meru and a Rose to cosplay with (aka Avianna as Rose and Dessi-Desu as Meru)! In fact, we were all so happy to cosplay together that we got some awesome gag pictures as well ^__^

You (and your fellow Rose an Meru) were the most form fitting cosplayers ever! You guys really grasped the roles well and I love your costume
