|Time Taken :||1-2 months give or take|
|Planned for October! I'm going to make this work whether it likes it or not!|
Hopefully gonna have a Psychic Yuna, a Psychic Rikku (If she can get it done, which I hope she will :3), Nooj, Gippal and Baralai too which should loads of fun!
I want to wear this costume so badly. I feel like wearing it and just skipping down a road with it on, that's how excited I am to wear this. Especially since it's so nearly finished. I just have to wait until I go to town to get the rest of the materials then I can FINALLY finish it. Next thing I need is for October to hurry up!!
Easiest part: Trousers, shoes and gloves. All really simple to find and the shoes I already had which is an added bonus.
Hardest part: Jacket. Damn that things annoying and probably what I spent the most time on out of all the costume. It needed the most editing what with the cuffs, the circles, the neck pattern and the zip. Plus I needed to cut things off and edit other pieces too!
This costume is coming along really nicely and if anything, should be finsihed or very nearly finished by the end of the week. Really excited about wearing this in October Expo, especially since there's going to be a Rikku and a Yuna with me too.
I'm doing some major sewing and sorting out tomorrow. With the zip I got today, I can finally get this costume compeleted if not tomorrow then the day after. After I've finished it, there will be some pictures up of the whole costume fully finished and waiting for October. >3
I finished the letter. Thus finishing the neck part. Do you know what that means? :') I think you do! It means this bloody costume is finally COMPLETED! *jumps with joy* I'm so happy. :') Photos hopefully up soooooon.
I've worn this three times and I've already lost the visor. -.- I guess if I can't find it or make another in time, I'm going to have to go without.
Taking this with me for the Saturday of May Expo. Anyone wanna be my Rikku or Yuna? c:

Nearly Finished (Posted 30th July 2010)
You have no idea how close this costume is to being finished. I just need to finish sewing the ribbon on then do the lettering type thing and then it's finished. It feels like ages since I've finished a costume! And you're getting no progress pics until I finished the costume. >3 Just too keep you people of your toes until I've finished it!

I think this costume is coming along quite nicely. The gloves have been ordered, the Jacket should be ordered in the next day or so then I can edit it, the neck pattern I have started though that might be a bit complicated and then the costume should be finished soon enough. As well as that, I'm helping my friend with her Psychic Yuna as well (making her cuffs, sent her the link to the gloves I've ordered and helping her find the jacket, skirt and maybe the botos). Can't wait to wear it in October, it's going to be so much fun. ^^
Wig's been ordered... (Posted 20th June 2010)
As the title says, the wigs been ordered since no-one else bid on the same wig, though there were millions of the same dotted around Ebay, so it was kind of easy to get it without fighting over it. However, when I saw how long the shipping was going to take, I'm pretty glad I ordered it when I did. It will probably take around either 15-25 or 8-15 days to ship apparantly, I don't want to happen what happened to my friend when she made her Yuna 1 week before the Expo and had to pay an extra 20 odd pounds more for it to ship on time.
Might have to wait a while for it to get here, but when it does, let the styling fail!
Wig (Posted 13th June 2010)
The wig I'm going to get has been bidded on and will be hopefully start being delieved in the next two days. So when it comes, I'll start styling it too look somewhat like Paine's hair. I can't say it'll be great since it's my first time styling a wig to an extent like this but I'll try. I've got a plan formed inside my head for it anyway ^^ Let's just hope it works.
Visor (Posted 12th June 2010)
After speaking to my friend who's doing the Psychic Yuna about Visor's for this costume, we decided to use plastic see-through bottles for them. Going to be a bit difficult to actually get it into the right shape and all, but I just hope it'll work out.
