"Tethys is a beautiful, charming dancer, and a native of the desert kingdom of Jehanna. Abandoned by her parents when she young, Tethys began dancing to make money, and with time she became famous. She danced from city to city, and the entire continent became her stage."
I've always loved Tethys' character - she's passionate and fiery, but extremely caring about her comrades. I grew very fond of her throughout the game and thought it would be fun to cosplay her. Her design is intricately detailed and provocative, and since everyone already thinks I'm a dancer, I thought it would fit me to a tee!
Her outfit is very simple (Arabian-eqsue dancer), so it was pretty simple to put together. The detail work on the top is in gold bias tape, gold embroidery thread and gold and red-painted beads. There is even an embroidered miniature symbol on the back of the bikini bottoms, just to add some flair.
This is such a lovely costume, and I'm really glad I spent more time on it with hand detailing - I think it adds a great personal touch to the costume and really shows how much I'm involved with it's construction.
