|♥ About Lulu ♥|
"Yuna's guardian, and an accomplished black mage. She's guarded two summoners before Yuna, and has learned much those pilgrimages. No one, not even Wakka, knows how she controls the puppets she uses as weapons."
♥ About the Cosplay ♥
However I have made Lulu's Bangle Armour and now have a wonderful Moomba plushie (made by the wonderful Gaming_Goddess as a birthday present) I turned him into a puppet to make my stage presence alot more theatrical as I hate holding the plushies (it's awkward for posing and movement in general)
I've worked on this costume for over 2 years now, it has been worn before when it's been partially completed (lacking in belts, needed a new red necklace and whatnot) but as of July 2013 it is now finished! I am so relieved to say she's done, she does need some repairs before I wear her again!
Annnnnd I am so thrilled I one best Individual for Hyper Japan July 28th 2013! Totally most amazing thing ever!
I decided to go ahead and re-do my original cosplay: Lulu but not like re-vamp, totally start from scratch because I've learned so much since then and now I think I can make her again but so much more accurate and to make it that extra bit special I've decided to "make" her baby* aswell (idea swiped from Missy_Tetra) so technically it's not totally the same as it'll be X-2 version lol but this is still in the making, for now a moomba will have to suffice!
I still haven't finished my Vidina prop he is the final part of this costume I need to make but the rest is now 100% complete, I have the doll just need to make his wrap!
