Costume Information

I really love Aerith's character and design, despite the fact that I really hate her portrayal in Advent Children. I really don't think Mena Suarvi's voice suits her at all, in my opinion Mandy Moore was the first, and best Aerith.
I've been wanting to do this costume properly for ages, I love the design and Aerith's kind and spirited character. I can't wait to do this for expo with Charlie and Bloo as Tifa and Cloud. ;D


is this nearly finished i would love to see this at expo! =D

Princess Guard (Posted 3rd April 2011)

Here's just a close up of the paint job for the wings. I made them out of foamboard stuff, painted with gold spray paint and white, brown & blue acrylics to give it more of a metal texture.

Flower power! (Posted 24th October 2010)

Today I stopped off at the garden centre and purchased this lovely basket and some pretty flowers <3

Button, oh button... (Posted 11th July 2010)

Where hast thou fled?
Did you tarry too long
Between needle and thread?
Did you roll off my bosom,
and cease to exist?
How I wish I would follow you
Into the mist

I just bought these fabulous buttons off ebay 8D

Wig. (Posted 13th June 2010)

Just a quick update to note the progress I'm making on my Aerith wig.
I love this wig - I bought the same version last year but since I didn't take enough care of it it got all scraggly T_T But I promise I'll look after this one!

I've done the fringe, and one of the curly bits. I still have to make a ribbon and tie it back aswell, but the pressure on my head is making me sleepy.
