I am a fan of the Fate franchise but this particular character, Nero, I hold no personal attachment to. I think it’s the most challenging to make something you know nothing about, but it also allowed me to be as creative as I wanted. As such I sought out and used materials that were very difficult and decided, why not make things even harder by adding detailed pieces from materials I also have never worked with.
I used velvet for the top and a variety of materials for the skirt, especially happy with how the vinyl piece on the skit and top turned out, I enjoyed meeting this challenge and of course I could not resist putting a lot of flair with trim and some hand painting.
I could not have been more thankful to get to work with Bethany, we share a similar vision so bringing this version of Nero to life with her was an absolute treat!
