Costume Information

Cost : not much :D

Cantarella is possibly my favourite Kaito/Miku song. I just love the story and the tune.
I ship that pairing too much .__.

SO anyways this is for the ame ball.. the dress is built off a dress I already own (the one I wore for magnet last time) and I've taken off some of the trims and replaced them as well as making a large circle skirt which has been attached.
I decided to go for a curl in the miku bunches this time as my last miku wig was lovely but long and straight bunches went horrible very very quickly when catching against other materials!

currently (28th july) its all about 90% complete. sleves with lacing done, skirt attached and applique added to the top. I just need to finish hemming the skirt bottom adding a few details and adding some halter straps.
If only I had a dashing Kaito to dance with!

right I've marked this as complete now (3rd august) as after some consideration and messing about with extra trims and applique I decided to keep it more simple :) can't wait to wear it now.

hmmm complete maybe? (Posted 2nd August 2010)

both the sleeves are totally done now, I have ribbons for my hair and the skirt of the dress has been hemmed and I've added some of the lacing I've used for the sleeves to the front panel of the skirt part of the dress
and I've added ribbons to act as halter straps to the top (this way I can still have the choker effect round her neck and I feel more secure that the dress wont just fall totally down from the weight of it!)
still can't decide whether to add the white gathered material, I have it all sewn together and semi gathered but I can't decide if it will actually look good :/ might have to think of something else suitable or just leave it off!
also apologies no pics of this till the actual dance, as its pretty big I can't get a decent picture of it on me or on the floor or whatnot myself XD
