^D^ Will definitely be doing this at some point. For shoes, I'm just using some socks that are as close to the colour of Butterfree's feet as I could get probably xD!

So i saw this version on dA by redEmily00 and instantly fell in love with the design :3 I love the idea with the wings as a bow! ^_^ I'm worried about making actual wings, so yeah, I like this idea better :3
I would've liked to use my own design, but this one is so.. so.. so AMAZING xD

Even if it does get jokes about the red eye parts being on my boobs xD.

This looks really pretty! And the gloves give it that little touch of elegance - I can see how you fell in love with the design ^^

Lol, definitely want to remake the tights, though ^^ i still have fabric, hopefully i have enough Dx the waistband was the problem. I'm guessing I do need elastic, like I thought originally xD
