Costume Information

Description
This is the first costume I've been proud of, because it's the first once I've ever applied myself to. I haven't really been that serious about cosplay before this. Getting a job meant I had the money for it, too, which has obviously helped a lot. Looking at the difference between this and my other cosplays is astonishing.

Everything was made myself; the corset was a Simplicity pattern that I barely ended up using, the skirt was a hoop base I ordered off eBay which I painstakingly hand sewed net into, and the top/bow/sleeves were all just me sort of botching things together and hoping for the best. The hair piece is a massive bow clip with two fake flowers stuck in it, some feathers and some weird decoration from Wilkinsons. The wig was a present from my gorgeous Gakupo, LadyNeo <3

I'm really surprised that so many people thought I'd bought this costume, I honestly did not think it was up to any sort of standard, never mind on the level of being bought! Looking back, though, I have to say I am very pleased with how this turned out.

Also a massive thank you to LadyNeo, my amazing Gakupo who kept me cheerful all day despite some minor issues, and who made my costume just that bit more accurate with my amazing makeup! <3
