Description
I adore Halloween Town Sora, I have ever since I started playing the game, and so I thought, "What better character to start cosplaying as... in October!"
The hardest part was probably the keyblade. It took weeks to make, and it was very tiring waiting for the glue and such to dry. It was paper maché, you see (is that spelt right?)
The wings were annoying and very last minute. We couldn't work out a quick way of doing them, so my Mum sewed some black material over wire, basically. They were evil and everyone hated them :|
The wig was a pain in the butt too, it was itchy and we just couldn't get it to look right, no matter what we did.
The rest of the costume was super easy. It was just basic sewing (by hand*, I hadn't used a sewing machine at this point). I wish I'd spent more time on it, and I'll probably remake it at one point.

I got asked for quite a few pictures and was rather overwhelmed to be honest :| It was my first cosplay event and I wasn't expecting it xD;;

* I probably should have been more clear there! Most of my costume was just old clothes. By hand sewn, I only mean the grey top and the white material over the jacket-like thing... I'm not that good >.

I remember seeing you and I asked for a picture! *waves* Your outfit was so cool and I can't believe you hand-sewed it and made it out of old bits of material! The keyblade is awesome and made of win! ^^ Love it to pieces! :D
