Description
Me and my sister watched the whole series together, loved it, decided to cosplay it etc etc.

Started out that I couldn't do it cos I am useless and badgered Jen into making the corset for me, promising to make the rest if she did the hard bit (hehehe). So we bought a bra and fabric and she sewed the two together rather sucessfully..... I then found out the bra was too small (a lesson everyone should learn, try on things in changing rooms... or at least know your size properly before you buy!). So she flat out refused to make it again, I then bought more fabric and another, better fitting, bra, and made it myself... substituting most of the sewing with hot glue gunning AHAHA. Burnt myself quite a lot... but better than breaking my sewing machine :D

Yeh, jen made the wig after I had a massive stress over hacking the one I had to death... but yeh, she did a great job and it looked amazing! :D

I'm not happy with the boots, and if I were to ever fancy wearing it again, I would try my best to get a better suited pair. They were too big as well! I looked like a clown!

The whole thing practically fell apart over the weekend, which sucked, I don't think I could wear it again unless I did some work on it to make it easier to wear.... and as I am lazy, that won't happen any time soon!

This was a great cosplay :D

I can't believe it fell to bits! D: It looked really well made too; even though by the sound it was hot glued together (like a lot of my costumes XD)

It is an awesome series, I really recommend it! It's called scrapped princess and is about 24 or 26 episodes long.

Yay scrapped princess! More people need to cosplay from this series. It's great, but so under-cosplayed! You make such an awesome Pacifica. ^_^
