Dream Cosplay :)
I've always loved Quistis. I've wanted hair like hers since I was about 14

Many Thanks to Dokudel of cosplay.com for the wonderful wonderful wig

This costume will be done in conjunction with:
Selph - as Selphie
Death-may-Die - as Irvine
rougearcanis - as Rinoa

EDIT - Had an awesome time wearing Quisty at Kita, got a few repairs to make before this costume is worn again, and this costume still needs finishing!

EDIT - Costume will be making a reappearence at Midlands Expo 2012 tomorrow. Hopefully I can get to meet Hironobu Sakaguchi dressed as Quisty :D It's still not actually finished as I still haven't done the belts and hairclip (I know... I've had a year to do them, but I've been busy)

EDIT - After saying I have a few extra things to do to this costume for it to be totally complete for about a year new, I've come to the conclusion that I probably wont be doing those things. And as I'm most likely not going to wear this costume again unless for a big group or something I figured I'd mark this as complete

Complete (ish) (Posted 20th February 2012)

After saying I have a few extra things to do to this costume for it to be totally complete for about a year now, I've come to the conclusion that I probably wont be doing those things. And as I'm most likely not going to wear this costume again unless for a big group or something I figured I'd mark this as complete

Almost there! (Posted 25th March 2011)

The main bulk of this costume is now completed bar the elastic waist band and attaching the purple sleves to the waistcoat.

The only thing missing are the belt details, but due to time restirctions these may have to follow post-kita for this costume to be marked as fully completed.

50% (Posted 15th March 2011)

My wig is in the country
But sadly the bastards at customs are holding it until I pay import tax D:
Majorly sad, I'll do that later and hopefully get it tomorrow, then progress picture time

The top is almost finished, it's looking really good I think, and it fits well, I just need to shape the shoulders a little bit more!

And the skirt isn't far from being done, then it will be at a stae where it is almost wearable even without the little accessories that go with it, such as the belts as and such

The only other thing I'm worrying about is that sleves and making them stay without attaching them to the top... thought needed there I think!

Oh minor after thought, I need shoes!

Wig (Posted 1st March 2011)

The wonderful Dokudel of cosplay.com mailed me yesterday to say that the wig had been shiped
Just waiting for it to arriv now as it's coming from America

Can't wait to see how it looks
This costume is coming together nicely
There will be pictures when it arrives

Update (Posted 21st February 2011)

I've finally got round to finding some free time to do some cosplay work.

I went to my wonderful aunt's house, whom I could not do these costumes without.
And I got all the patterns drawn up and material cut out.

Gotta get round to stiching it all together
But the fabric for the main body of the outfit looks awesome, and I've got a feeling it's going to look good

Finally in Progress :) (Posted 26th January 2011)

Dream cosplay finally in Progress
I Love Quistis so much, she's awesome

Sorted a wig commisioner out :)
And Going fabric shopping on Monday with the wonderful Selph (And possibly Reiss too)

So I am one happy Yasmia right now :)
