|Time Taken :||8 days|
|Worn to AmeCon 2010!|
Most of this costume was made by Shido to advertise Paper Cranes. I did the smaller jobs, like styling the wig, sorting the boots, gloves, Raging Heart, etc.
I love this costume to bits and love how it flows. The designs from Nanoha are all nice, but the original StrikerS version with the miniskirt is easily my favourite, it's so striking.
I didn't have my Raging Heart staff, but I had my necklace..! That's just as good right?
Boots of doooom (Posted 2nd August 2010)
I've attempted these boots 3 times with 3 seperate pairs of boots and styles, but I think I'm finally happy with these style.. not entirely accurate, but I think they look alright!
The boots are from my 2005 Zelos cosplay, modified with white pleather at the top, with gold dance lycra pieces for the front panels and then with blue fablon covering the heel. They still need a gem attaching to the front of each boot, which should be done tomorrow.
Nanoha is coming along nicely and besides the hair ribbons and wig styling this is pretty much the only part of the costume I've made, since Shido made the rest to promote her Papercranes.co.uk stall at AmeCon. It's coming along awesome.
