Costume Information

I've had great fun cosplaying Selphie in her main outfit so would like to do her Balamb Garden uniform also which you see during the Dollet mission when Selphie first joins the party.

I was originally going to order this from Dream-Angels where I got her yellow dress but on second glance the shoulders aren't as accurate as first thought and the Balamb Garden logo is missing from the sleeve. I think I could make this myself tbh now my skills are improving. It's just the shoulder pattern might be a challenge to get looking right.


~Please see my journals for more details on the construction of this costume as well as progress photos~

Aww thanks hun ^-^ She's such a fun character to be. I need to find a rocky area to fall off XD (without damaging the costume of course!)

Thanks ^^ It's the shoulder detail that might cause some issues.

I'm thinking those 3D fabric paints you get in the squeezy bottles. If you know what I mean... lol
