Description
I've loved this game for years. Franki told me he was organising a group and if I wanted to join in, and my favourite character wasn't taken so I was straight in. The boots hadn't dried in time, I used spray paint on them over a week ago and its still slightly sticky, might have to go over it in something else. I also would like to alter it a bit and theres a few things other things I'd like to change and alter as I cut some corners at the last minute to get it wearable in time. I was sewing the sleeves on in my hotel room till past midday Saturday so I may take them off and redo them.

Thank you Defrain, I think its a crying shame it doesn't, you'd think all the KH cosplayers would pounce on it once they got bored of their Sora costumes XD.

Lol Dan I said that under one of the photos. I'll keep trying and hopefully get better.

This was a favourite game of mine way back when. To see it cosplayed makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. You all look amazing. Your dye job is brilliant. The colour looks as though it has taken completely uniformly even though the piece of fabric is so large.

Thank you so much ^_^. Rather then using a washing machine one I used a hand dye one (dylon) and kept stirring it around the sink with my hands to get through all the folds, (in rubber gloves) for half an hour to avoid blotching. It could of just been luck though.
