Jacket Complete



Costume Information

Cost : £92

Am actually really looking forward to doing this cosplay. I love her Hair so much ^_^

I have a jacket that was commissioned and bought on ebay, it's really good though i would like to dye it to a darker red and make the armour on the sleeves better. The pink material i ordered has arrived and i'm very very happy with it ^_^ It's such a beautiful pink =D The buttons have also arrived so i shall be starting on the dress next week.

My boots arrived last week and i love them and they are very comfy ^_^

The wig was put in the post last week so i'm just waiting for that to arrive, it's an already styled Aerith Wig from an amazing commissioner on Ebay.

The black ribbon arrived in the post today and i am still in progress of making the bracelets =D I've decided to go with Gold because i associate the gold bracelets with the game version and the silver bracelets with the movie version and personally i prefer the gold bracelets =D

Edit:- 14/10/10 - I have decided that i won't be making the weapon for Expo as i don't have much time so i'll be putting the weapon on hold until the next time i wear this cosplay. Instead for now i've decided my prop is going to be a flower basket, i have found the basket and the flowers i want and will be buying them on Friday ^_^ x.

I got my mum to order it for me a phew weeks ago and it arrived last week. I had made one but the stitching was awful so i decided to get the same one my friends ordered early in the year as it was very good quality.

To-Do List

Flower BasketLowComplete
Buy material for DressLowComplete
Black RibbonLowComplete


Finisheeeed =D (Posted 23rd October 2010)

So so SO happy! I attached the new armour cuffs to the jacket and finished the Flower Basket so this is now complete =D First expo it seems that i won't be finishing my cosplays the night before xDDD x.

Wiiiiiig (Posted 22nd October 2010)

I styled the fringe of it and done the bow and materia. I wanted to make the fringe massive like she had in the game but the hair wasn't long enough to do that, i did ask the seller but they said they couldn't make it longer. But i'm fine with it, i probablly would have looked stupid with such a huge fringe anyway xD I don't know if the wig suits me but i've only tried it on when i haven't had makeup on so that's probablly why, lol x.

WIG ARRIVED! =D (Posted 19th October 2010)

The wig arrived today and it's absolutely beautiful ^_^ It's in the middle of being styled as we speak, i just have to do the fringe, the bow and the materia. It's also a bit heavy so i'll be adding a hair grip (which i bought to hold the beads in my faris wig) to the front of the wig to grip on to my head better =D

Flower Basket (Posted 15th October 2010)

I got meh jobseekers today so i paid for my basket and two lots of flowers =D All of it together came to £9 ^_^
I've also now bought some silver spray paint for the armour cuffs on the jacket so everything is now bought for my Aerith =D x.

Dress is complete! =D (Posted 8th October 2010)

Took me only 2-3 hours to do, this has to be the easiest dress i've made - well second under ImmortalRose's Selphie dress =P. I also ordered way too much fabric it seems because i have loads left xD So with someof it i've also made the bow =] and the rest will just be put away for future Cosplays =D x. Photo to be uploaded when i can get my hands on a camera lol x.

Aerith Jacket (Posted 7th October 2010)

Was bought from Ebay - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Aerith-Final-Fantasy-7-FF-VII-Cosplay-Costume-/260...

I only bought the Jacket because the dress is too much of a pale pink.
