Hello! I’m considering cosplaying Cassius from GranBlue Fantasy and I have all the layers to his outfit pretty much planned except the very top layer (the purple and black one). I’m not quite sure how the fabric falls or if it’s sewn or multiple pieces, it doesn’t crossover, and the game doesn’t have a back view. Do you have any suggestions for how I could research fabricating such a robe? Please and thank you!
Oh, JRPG-style clothing designs with few references. I will do my best. (I do a lot of this kind of thing for my own cosplay work, and often just have to shrug and make something up)
The garment seems to be based on a robe design, only it’s half a robe (sleeve + half the chest + bottom drape). The black robe is a separate garment underneath, which you can see on the left part of the first image – the purple part seems to stand away from the chest (and the black part) just above the sash in the middle. The black robe underneath contains the god + decorations on the chest and gold , decorations underneath, while the purple seems to be edges in thin gold trim. The problem is that the part above the sash and below the sash don’t seem to line up.
This is what I would do: get some fabric and try draping this on a form. It can be you or
