|Paine Lady Luck! What can I say this was somewhat mad. We wanted to do a cosplay group that we could enter into the masquerade. It was hard to find something that had three girls and with one which could be tackled in either dreadlocks or with a large hat (for Momo is a dreadhead, such a bane for cosplay choises) Eventually we decided on the FFX-2 girls, and after much deciding we went for the slutty costumes, because slutty is entertaining.|
I has major resevations about doing this costume as it was far far skimpier than I'm really comfortable with. I have no issues with nudity myself, but I knew we would get a lot of attention in these, and I was self concious about my small bust. The hardest part was the effort it took me to get my hair silver white. It was black at the beginning, and it took 6 months of careful bleaching, dying, and toning (with an awful lot of conditioning treatments) to get it silvery enough.
The costume is relatively simple, though the main body was a rather tricky pattern to get right, especially with my lack of bust >.< The main body is a leatherette, lined with cotton, with a deep blue crushed poly velvet skirt worn over thigh high leather boots. Paired with a matching blue crushed velvet collar and Paine's necklace (official merch) A blue feather fascinator finishes off my silver hair and I wore red lenses.
