Costume Information

Cost : £30 (Did I mention I'm cheap?) (Because of the cost of the wig ver.2 was alot more expensive! XD)
Time Taken : This is so hard..X.X I would guess about 20 hours.

As I've said previously...I love Aeris! I had plans for other costumes for ame, but then I just randomly decided to make this! This was one of those 'last rush cosplays' I didn't finish this until the night before the con. But it's all good cause it got done, right? XD This is the first cosplay - scratch that - first clothing thing that i've ever made from scratch. So this is the cosplay I learnt the most from. I'm not 100% happy with it, I very rarely am. XD So I'm currently revamping it for future cons. This costume is actually made so badly but I don't think it's *that* obvious. :P Mostly because I had to alter the patterns and half the time I just made it up as I went along...The dress wasn't too bad, but the jacket was quite stressful to make. X.X (I never give in though! NEVER! XD)

Anyway on the the good! This is the cosplay i've had the most fun wearing. ^_^ I've met some really good friends through this cosplay and was photographed ALOT. O.o It may not have been 100% accurate, and the wrist guards were embarrasingly last minute - but I had so much fun, and that's what cosplay is all about, right? O_~

Version 2 - includes: New wig, new wrist guards and I altered the jacket some what. The new version was considerably more uncomfortable to wear, but I'm much more pleased with the result! ^_^

Version 3 (I really need to leave this costume alone now.) - I've altered the dress because I think I must have actually lost weight (thank god!) so now it fits me much better. :D Also improved wrist guards and alterations to the jacket (especcially the sleeve...armour...things..) I wore this at may expo and got the best reception ever! Great because I don't know when (if ever) i'll be wearing it again. Thanks folks, you make this silly dressing up business all worthwhile! ^_^
