Costume Information

Cost : 80.29

This is for the Sunday night prom =D FusionRose is going as her own design ballroom Quistis so naturally I would be her Rinoa ;D I want to make this as Rinoa-ry as possible so the dress is going to be blue. Although I have a sort of "reference" picture I have my own design in my head but I might be using elements from the reference.

The reference picture was a design by Mielz on deviantart it's meant to be a "disney" version of her. As said it's more of a base ref but I'll be adding my own stuff to it =]

Currently I'm bidding on a gorgeous ballroom gown I hope I win *fingers crossed* since it's my size, cheap but looks fabulous! And then I'll be half way there alredy XD I really want to buy a new Rinoa wig (AGAIN) coz I wasn't too impressed with the one I got last month. So this time I'm getting a nice black one and sewing in the brown tracks myself =]

- Well obviously I won the dress XD and now it seems I've bought everything =D horrah! Only thing is the brown tracks wont arrive in time since I left it too late >< dough! But hopefully I'd still be recognisable D: I'm gonna keep a look around around the market for some extensions though. Now I just have to make the cardigan thing and recieve the items =D

@Majinmarron: I'll give you the link to the eBay shop but I don't even have this wig now :( apparently their account was hacked and the hacker listed their stuff really cheap so I woulda had to pay like even more for it >_> it all seemed dodgy to me so I told them to just cancel the transition. But here it is :) maybe you'll have better luck haha:

And thank you everyone for the nice compliments :)

Shopping List

Hair Fascinator£5.00Bought


90% Complete (Posted 6th March 2011)

Soooo close to being finished! My gloves and petticoate arrived so I just gotta have my organza arrive and I make her cardigan thingy and she's complete :D I'll still be looking for brown tracks but woop! Excited to get my first Kitacon cosplay complete! Whichever will it beeee~ :D

Organza (Posted 25th February 2011)

I heard it fray's like a beetch. But it's so pretty I had to get it @_@ I've bought two metres coz it takes a while to arrive and I didn't wanna risk not having enough. Once this arrives I'll make the cardigan deely and all I need then is her gloves and I still gotta get brown tracks for the wig >< gah but this is very close to completion =D x

Hair Fascinator (Posted 12th December 2010)

I'm either going to be wearing the one I just bought (the feather sold me XD) or I'll make the one similar to her wings (like in the ref)

No wig :( (Posted 7th December 2010)

There were a bunch of wigs on eBay starting the bid at 99p and the p&amp;p were free. Too good to be true? Yes. I won a gorgeous wig and paid £2.20 for it and a few hours later the seller contacted me. He said his eBay account was hacked and the hacker had listed a bunch of wigs for cheap and stuff. And he could provide the wig for £12. But then due to a barrier of communication he didn't understand questions I asked so in the end I decided to cancel it >.< so still looking for a wig =[ The one I want is so expensive though D:
