Costume Information

General
Cost : Wow. Glass beads people. GLASS. BEADS. And bridal satin. So... £200? £150? £250? I lost count. :P
Awards : 1st place at Ichicon in Sweden
Time Taken : Since I procrastinate way too much... about 6 months. I did six costumes at once. Clever aye?

Description
This costume is my baby. It was my first serious sowing-attempt and I'm really proud how it came out. There are so many beads on the jacket. I love hand-sowing, but they did drive me slightly insane after a while. I lost count at around... 800ish. Haha. I dunno if that's a lot compared to some of the amazing costumes out there, but I sure as hell thought it was. :P

I did make a few mistakes with the construction of it, but managed to save it so I don't think it's very noticable. I think I've pretty much managed to get all the details right, but at one point I might remake the cape. I love my cape, but I wish it was BIGGER. It looks good hanging down, but I can't swish it as much as I want. ^_^

UPDATE 15 AUG 2010 - Yay! I might get to wear this again! We're trying to put together a massive Black Moon group sometime next year, possibly Kitacon or Ayacon. I can't wait, it'd be sooooo much fun! ^____^

I commented on the wrong one. I meant for Seiya. I'll get the cosplay in Sept so any time after that.

This is a wonderful costume. The detail is so effective because it's stylish and subtly done.

I thought I'd commented on this already >.<

Thanks guys! :D Yeah, this little bugger's got hundreds of beads on it, but I haven't gotten a good enough chance to wear it more! Hopefully this'll be changed soon. :)
