|Lol i love aerith XD im on an aerith spree at the moment, i don't think this will be worn to an expo though, probably something i will make in my spare time XD.|
Cannot wait to do this, all black and white as that is how her amano was drawn to be in MOST amano pictures, a couple are colour but i do love the black and white ones ^^
The work begins on this costume, i plan to do 2 versions of amano aerith, one will be based on the art, the other one will be my very own original design =]. This one will be my very own design, I will be starting on aerith's weapon, which will be black with grren spirals down it, with a materia on top of it hehe.

Staff (Part 5) (Posted 6th June 2010)
Anyway here we are 1 hour later with all the flowers done, Im really happy with how it came out, the areas where there are no flowers will be where i hold the staff, Can't hold areas with the flowers on ^^ otherwise they will all just fall off the staff XD.
Staff (Part 4) (Posted 6th June 2010)
Me adding more flowers onto the staff, These were just stuck on with glue, And the beading coming out of the flowers was done my me to give them a more 3D Effect ^^.
Staff (Part 3) (Posted 6th June 2010)
Once i had finished adding the green swirls i got to the exciting yet annoying part. Aerith is known as a flower girl and in my amano design i wanted to keep that look within her, During the time when i was sketching out my design ( fusionrose has a better sketch of the design though XD) I decided that i wanted a different look to her staff, In this idea i kept the idea from the amano drawing of a black as staff, And the green swirls came from the fact my amano aerith will be carrying green materia. So i thought of the idea of flowers growing off the staff, was not to sure if it would look good but seeing the staff now it looks like it has, I went with gold because it matches the jacket and cape i will be making for amano aerith.
Staff (Part 2) (Posted 6th June 2010)
Once i had finished spray painting the staff, and once it was dry, I added swirls down the entire staff, I did this the same way i did the red ones on garnets staff, I used coloured stickly tape, This way it looks a lot neater than painting the swirls down the staff ^^.
Staff (Part 1) (Posted 6th June 2010)
I bought a wooden dowel from wicks, and left it in my room for over a month lol, i just gave up on trying to start amano aerith for a whole, But last night i bought a dress mannequin!!! Yes finally now i know i can make the amano dress hehe. Anyway All i did was buy black spray paint, and sprayed the staff ^^.
Dress Fabric (Posted 4th April 2010)
I want it to look really elegant, with my design the dress will obviously be pink still lol, i decided to go with a nice pink satin XD i normally HATE SATIN, but i believe the satin will contrast with the gold colours in this outfit, hehe we will just have to see, will be a challenge to make the dress out of this fabric o.0.
