Costume Information

Description
I was going through my cosplays to see what I could wear for different cons and days...I realised that my Julia won't be in the Final Fantasy group at Kita so I was thinking of Aerith but I didn't want to abandon FF8 so I looked into the characters and how could I forget Ellone...she is so cool and I love her character...also my boyfriend is doing Laguna so it helps ^_^

Planning on this for the Final Fantasy Group at Kitacon ^_^

Video shows Ellone at 2.44 ^_^

Character Bio from http://www.finalfantasy500.com/500/ellone.htm

Ellone - Final Fantasy VIII

The girl around which much of FFVIII is centered. Sweet and caring, she charms all her who meet her and is strongly devoted to Laguna, who has taken great pains to protect her from those who would use her. She is being sought after by all sides because of her strange power to transport people's minds into the past of people she has met. She uses this power to transport Squall into the past of Laguna, and this same power(via a machine) is what Ultimecia uses in the future to send her own consciousness back to the present. Although Squall and his group don't remember her, she was with them while they were at Edea's orphanage, and acted as a big sister to Squall, who affectionately called her "Sis"

Journal

99% complete (Posted 7th March 2011)

I have nearly finished the jumper now, I'm not 100% happy with it but when it's all put together I am happy with the way it has turned out...I need to sort out the collar as it had to be cut in half so I need to sort out the back...I just need to get the shoes and wig now...hopefully the wig will turn up on time

Jumper - WIP 2 (Posted 6th March 2011)

I have added the zip onto the jumper now and it looks better than I thought it would but the glue gun was useless with this as it didn't work well...I'm now just cleaning up the jumper by the zip and then going to trim the top so the shirt will look right

Jumper - WIP (Posted 6th March 2011)

I have decided that this was nearly done so I would get it completed today I hope...I have just cut up the middle of my jumper so I can add the zip but I'm going to use my glue gun first to make sure it doesnt come undone...will post more pictures up soon

Jumper Bought (Posted 20th January 2011)

I saw this jumper and thought it looked perfect....I will need to dye it most likely and alter it so it has the collar and the zip but I dont think it would be too hard to do...will post better pictures when I get the item ^_^

Skirt Bought (Posted 19th January 2011)

I found this beautiful skirt and knew it would be perfect for Ellone and finally won it this evening so I'm really happy so I need to get to work on sorting out the rest of it ^_^

Found a jumper that may work but I would have to alter and dye it so not sure on it yet but fingers crossed that I can get something as I don't have a lot of time at the moment T_T
