Costume Information

Cost : About £10
Time Taken : 1 month roughly

I have always loved this dress and I love Rinoa's style so I decided to make this dress for Nemacon...but I found out it's going to be more anime based so I may stand out lol

But I had so many problems with this dress and I hate working with chiffon, but all in all I think it turned out well for my first dress.

Beautifull. Yep Chiffon comes with its problems but nothing else looks so floaty and delicate. ^_^
