Costume Information

Cost : £20

I love Treasure Planet - I think it has to be one of my all-time favourite animated movies ever. (Yes that's right!) Its so beautiful and cool and just the idea of it was absolutely amazing - when I got it on DVD I would just watch it over and over and never get bored (the sound track makes me so happy too~<3)

Alas I am not quite man-enough to cosplay Jim (Oh how I wish I was!) But Captain Amelia on the other hand, well she's cool, and wears thigh-high boots and kicks pirate butt! So yeah! I'm cosplaying her! ^^

EDIT: Bahh, don't think my wig will arrive in time (it has to arrive tomorrow or I won't be able to wear it for the ball, boo! :( If not, I guess I'll just slick my hair back with some gel and that'll have to do haha. Shame I wasn't able to get the hat done in time, I could've just worn that on my head all evening :)

Love this movie, love this character.
I've been pondering on whether I should attempt this for months actually, but decided it was probably beyond me XD
Best of luck!

Lol thanks guys, I'm not sure quite how many of you have demanded dances yet but at least it means I don't have to stand around looking like a lemon at the ball! XD I can't wait to do this. I'm also hoping to wear this for MinamiCon as well next year, so don't worry I'm definitely rewearing it!
