Description
>< Nervous about placing this up here But yeah I plan on being Rikku. I have ordered myself a wig to style since I have always loved Rikku and she is my Dream cosplay.
I know I'm not good enough to be Rikku in her thief outfit but Thats one I would love to do!

--

Hopefully I'll lose enough weight to be her in May 2011 but thats only wishfull thinking XD

--

A special thanks to Bambi for commissioning me the Scarf 8D I've never dyed anything before and this was a bit out of my league at the moment so I commissioned the lovely Bambi
It looks awesome!

Journal

Ear Ring (Posted 21st July 2010)

I did the earring today because I only just noticed she had one XD
But i happen to have feathers laying around so i dyed it and turned it into a earing ^0^

Boots (Posted 21st July 2010)

Here are the completed boots! They have been cut and painted and had yellow string put inside and tied into a bow!

Boots (Posted 18th July 2010)

Here are the base boots I won off Ebay today. Hopefully they will arrive soon so I can work on them. They need editing at the front, The Heel needs painting black, turning blue and to attach the yellow string at the back of the boots!

Wig arrival (Posted 17th July 2010)

Today my Wig arrived which is awesome slightly to short of pony tail but I don't care XD
It didn't come with beads (Which I should have guessed XD) So I have to get myself the beads. Waiting on Bambi to make my scarf and I am currently bidding on some shoes which will be my base shoes for Rikku!

Hopefully I shall win them and all shall be well! And I can get to work on them >D

Gloves (Posted 9th July 2010)

The gloves arrived today which I cut and edited for Rikku gloves. They have grips on the palm which would be good for thieving right? XD But yeah here they are ^0^

Scarf (Posted 9th July 2010)

Well There is no way I can knit myself and dye a Scarf so I commissioned Bambi, to do it 8D
Cost me £25 which is my second most expensive part of this cosplay D8 Rikku is more expensive than though D8 But yeah this is the last cosplay I am making for myself until I get a job. (Donald and Goofy don't count as Ish not paying for them tehe)
Can't wait to see it ^0^

Everything so far (Posted 5th July 2010)

The Bra is complete, The straps need shortening but that's easy. Just need my wig, Scarf and Shoes. I might make her Weapons too.....><

Bra (Posted 5th July 2010)

This is the Bra before work started!
Man I look like a doosh XD

Full shot so far (Posted 3rd July 2010)

Here is everything so far ^0^ I need to edit the skirt a little still for more details and maybe edit the arm things a bit more but Going well....See even in these pictures im blushing ^^;

Arm things (Posted 3rd July 2010)

Here is a close up of the arm things XD Made by ten bows (Five on each side) And holes in the sleeves like she does!
My machine really doesn't like bows anymore ^^:
The top has White elastic in which I did slightly wrong so they don't stretch much but it seems to be keeping them up though!

Skirt Complete with Belts (Posted 3rd July 2010)

Here is the completed Skirt and belts. Still some finishing up to do on the belt and pouches but this is the general idea ^0^ Please don't laugh at me ><

Pouch (Posted 2nd July 2010)

Here is one completed Pouch and one pattern cut out Ready to be completed.
I still need the belt loop on the completed one and then to attach to a belt. Made from Yellow Vinyl left overs from my Sora cosplay.

HeadBand (Posted 2nd July 2010)

Here is the completed Headband. It's made from a Soft Blue material and layered in the same style and sewn into place!

Materials (Posted 1st July 2010)

I have actually gone and bought materials for this. God help me T_T

Scared (Posted 30th June 2010)

I am so blooooooming scared to put this here on CI >< I know people get flammed and trolled for doing Characters like this when I am no where near thin enough to actually think about being Rikku ><
But she is and always has been my Dream cosplay even though Loads do cosplay as her!
Working on the wig soon and do some tests to see if I should take this on any further...
*worries*
