Costume Information

General
Cost : £190
Time Taken : 35 Hours

Description
My Aerith Wig was designed by Fusionrose On this website ^_^!

Aerith's princess guard was made out of a wooden dowel, was then cut into 3 pieces, and holes were drilled and ad screws inserted to ensure i could ttake it apart when i was finished, as it is a pretty big staff =D. The head was made from foam to keep it light, then painted and varnished to complete it.

9/3/10 - Aerith was brought out for one final wear, this was for the final fantasy XIII launch at oxford street HMV ^^, pictures were taken for websites, magazines and interviews so hopefully i can find some of them hehe.

Interview/Videos me and Fairyprochqueen are in as aerith and tifa:

Re make (Posted 29th January 2010)

This costume is now coming with me to kitacon 2010, Aerith is my favourite character ever, and used to be my trademark character, still is with a phew of my mates ^^, and i didn't get time to dye the dress before i took it to expo, which really did upset me =[, so before i go to kitacon i will be dyeing it so it's a lot more pink hehe, may even edit my jacket to aeriths original so i can do original aerith ^^.
