Description
To be Worn on the Sunday Daytime

This is going to be odd but fun XD Me and FusionRose spent like half an hour last night figuring out which cosplays to do. So this is for Sunday and it's odd coz I've never been Quistis before and usually FusionRose is Quistis and I'm Rinoa XD So it's role reversal =D! Fun fun!

Although if I'm not able to get this complete by Kitacon FusionRose said I could borrow hers for the day =]

Quistis is on my list anyways so I'm glad I've got an excuse to wear her. I know my friend's bought me a blonde wig for Christmas but it has a side fringe so I have to decide whether or not to go a little inaccurate. I'm gonna make/buy it so it's orange/peachy coloured. o.O it confuses me why people think it's pink. To me it's always been orange. But ah well =]

**02/01/11**
- I've decided to put all the costumes I've got planned for upcoming events into progress since I keep working on the wrong ones and this way I can feel a bit more organised XD

**22/01/11**
- There's no way I can afford to buy this outfit now so will be trying to make/piece together by altering pieces of clothing I've found. In my head it'll work swimmingly but I don't think that's going to be the reality xD I've decided to get another wig since the one I have isn't good enough and I don't want to risk ruining a Christmas present by styling it

**26/03/11**
- FINISHED! YAY!

Journal

Finished! (Posted 26th March 2011)

OMGGGGGGGGGGG She's finished! I went to Fusionrose's last night and she styled the wig for me! (Pictures soon) I need to shorted the straps of the sleeves but it's good enough to be called finished! I'm so happyyyyyy!! EEP!

90% Complete (Posted 22nd March 2011)

OMG so close to finishing!! EEEEEP! All I need to do is style the wig and tweak the sleeves a little :D then she's done! I've decided not to make the whip as it's uneeded time being spent when I could be doing other things, so although the photo isn't brilliant I hope you can see similarites XD The skirt is EXTREMELY heavy coz fo the chains, so I REALLY hope it doesn't fall down xD hehe HAPPEH

Chains (Posted 21st March 2011)

i've been sooo busy this weekend when it comes to cosplays @_@ I bought some dog collar chains which I thought were perfect for the skirt, I decided to buy four, two for each side, so they jingle more as I walk :D I'm half way through sewing them on and so far looking great!

Skirt Progress (Posted 4th March 2011)

The skirt is now tailored to fit me and hemmed! I'm suprised how well it turned out considering my skill x.x but I'm really happy that it now fits :D It's a lot shorter than her's as this goes a couple of inches above my knee where hers is on or just under her knees. But I'm happy with it :D

Top Complete! (Posted 1st March 2011)

I was able to edit the shape and have now attached the sleeves :D When I wear this I'm going to have to safety pin the top to the skirt as it's a very stretchy and rides up a lot due to the material so this way it'll stay neatly down. I'm so happy I was able to finish this top :D Now I'm gonna work on the skirt which'll hopefully be done in the next few days. I still need to get a belt and chains though but once I've hemmed and tailered the skirt with the black detail those should be the easiest to do :D

Fail Top @_@ (Posted 26th February 2011)

The cutting was HORRIBLE XD But I'm fixing it =D luckily the material is stretchy so atm one side is fixed (not shown in picture -also excuse the PJ bottoms xD) and I'm about to sew the other one. The next picture will be with the sleeves attached also which I hope to finish tonight but no pictures will be up until tomorrow @.@ But omg the boobage D< That's going XD I think my patience for sewing is growing since I can sew a lot more now for a longer time =D sweeet x Top tonight. Skirt tomorrow. Oooooh yeah!

Skirt (Posted 21st February 2011)

I was in Croydon today and I went into the British Heart Foundation :D Thank God for them! I found an orange skirt. My mum was sure it was the same shade as my top but I wasn't sure. Since it was £4.80 I decided to buy it anyway and risk it. Although it was a size 24 @_@ But I've got it home and it's perfect :D it matches the top brilliantly. So all I need to do is tailor and hem it ^_^ *happy bunny*

Material (Posted 12th February 2011)

Well I've found some material on eBay that I think would be nice to use to make the skirt but I think since I'm making the skirt I might as well have a go at making the top. And since I have one in the correct shape I can use it as a pattern then I know the material matches and is the right texture for both :D I think two metres would be enough and that should just be £5.40 but I'm poor atm >< so I need to wait til next week to buy it =/

Skirt + Top (Posted 27th January 2011)

The skirt and top are two completely different oranges (the pictures were decieving >.>) so now I need to find another skirt since the tops orange is perfect and the top seems like it'll be really comfy to wear and a perfect size. I'll get to editing it asap =D

Huzzah! They fit! (Posted 27th January 2011)

The boots actually fit! I'm kinda shocked. They're quite tight but I'm gonna work extra hard on losing weight around my calves so they're not too bad. The skirt's arrived but it's reeeeally orange oO like weird orange. So I'm not sure if I should use it but I'll see what it's like in comparrison to the shirt when it arrives. I'm bidding on a burgandy jacket to yoink the sleeves from which hopefully I win. I don't want to start working on the skirt detail until I have a skirt to use so I know I've got the size right

Boots (Posted 24th January 2011)

I contacted the seller of these boots asking if they'd fit my calves as they're about 17-18" and the woman said they would as she was the same. I'm hoping when they arrive they'll fit if not I'll sell them on eBay and buy another pair =] If they do fit I'll also be wearing these for my Femme Cloud

Won! (Posted 22nd January 2011)

I won the skirt and top I had my eye on :D As you can see their colour differ slightly so when they arrive I'll see just how different they are and then if they're okay, great! If they differ too much I'll chose my favourite orange and go to the fabric shop and either make the top or make the skirt :D Now to buy the extras!

Bits n Bobs (Posted 21st January 2011)

Well, I was working out my expenses for the Kitacon outfits and it had gone to over £250 o.O not good. And the most expensive thing was the Quistis outfit I'd found on eBay for around £82. There's no way I could afford that so I've browsed around eBay and found a couple of items I can edit (hopefully) into her outfit and then some other bits and bobs for the detail. If I'm lucky I can get away with this outfit for about £30 which is a huge knock off the total price. Big thankies to FusionRose who's being my Quisty idol @_@ she knows the ins and outs of the outfit. I couldn't do this without her xD
