Description
The decision to make this costume was made during Ayacon 05, jodie (firedaemon) was also going to join in and be freya from the same picture. yay!

The costume consists of two petticoats, one for structure, giving shape at the back and a chiffon skirt for decoration.
Over the top goes another skirt, or half skirt, as its only at the back.
There is an apron like dress, with sleeves that laces up with ribbons at the back and then ties around my neck in a bow.
The costume is completed with a long blonde wig, headband, ears, stockings and shoes!

The patternwork on this costume wasn't too hard, most of the skirts where based around circles and the dress was based of a princess seamed pattern. The whole costume was really time consumed, the majority of it was piped, with handmade piping. I sewed non around 150 hand covered buttons and all of the cotton triming was scalloped by me too >_<

I most annoying thing about this costume has to be the wig, I don't think I will ever cosplay a character with hair that long again!!!! Although I made a collar to go around my neck, after wearing this costume for about 4 hours the ribbons tend to start to strangle me. >_<

Whenever I wear this costume, my matching freya is always not far away from me, chobits cosplayers always get a nice reception!
We recently retired these costume at Japan expo.
