Costume Information

About midway of having pre-timeskip Nia done, I thought, "hey I should do older Nia too!" I really love the character and there's so much pink! After younger Nia went down so well I really want to do this (and it'll help me save on money too).

wig;; already had
shoes;; already had

total;; idk

Thanks guys.
There's quite a lot of material to take in since the measurements were completely off, but they've offered a remake which will be easier to work with if it's too big again and with a back up plan if they've left details off again. :)

Modifications (Posted 17th March 2011)

I don't have a camera at the moment so forgive me for the lack of pictures.

Nia has been modded now. The part which held the cape up is now attached to the dress and the cape itself is now attachable and detatchable via press studs. Unfortunately I shan't be able to wear this without the cape as I've had to put a stud in the middle of the back for extra support; without it I would have had even less arm movement and it would rub and irritate my skin.

I'm contemplating varnishing parts of the necklace as I don't like how big they've made the tassels, but time will tell.

Spam (Posted 14th February 2011)

A quick picture of Nia now she actually fits apart from around the chest area. It's a bit bigger than it should look because I was really cold and threw it on top of my work uniform!

Plan of Attack (Posted 6th February 2011)

The dress now fits me properly; I would have taken some pictures but I've been a little lazy recently ha ha. The inside of the dress is now all lined and the leg slit is up to where I originally wanted them to be.

The cape is still a problem though. I'm planning to either have the gold part remade and attached to the dress, or just using the one which which was on the cape originally and attaching it to the dress. I'm also hoping that I'm going to be able to attach small buttons (I know what I'm talking about but I can't think of the name!) so I'm able to attach the cape in the correct place and detatch when I don't wish to wear it.

Wig (Posted 29th January 2011)

Although I do already have a wig for this cosplay, I've decided to start work on a second one as the first one is refusing to detangle. With this second wig I'm aiming to style it right since last time I cut it wrong thanks to using a mirror. :)
