Costume Information

Description
gosh it was years ago when i saw this, way before i was into cosplay but i remember seeing her and wanting my hair like hers and then i grew it :D and well i wanted to cosplay her but ive just never put it up on here

one thing going against me is that im not very tall lol

to be worn at ayacon :D

this costume gave me the best experience, so much so i must write it down

in the butterworth building taking the glass lift (rather lazy i know)
but this guy was walking down the stairs his eyes lit up and he mouthed OMG, he was trying to take a pic as the lift went up so i just kindly waved at him as he took a pic XD best experience of someone recognising my costume XD

manchester expo (Posted 31st July 2011)

finally expo comes to my home town. i was in for 2 mins and well it got dirty, i love this costume even though it was a pain i really enjoyed it :P i will do a few alterations and then bring it t it to ayacon :P for the sunday night

its complete (Posted 29th July 2011)

woo the night before , i never leave things till last min ive been freting all day. silly me thinking beading would be fun lol

nearly complete (Posted 26th July 2011)

ok so its made from nothing, and built into this, im on the final stretch woooo
-belt needs to be made,
-still need anklets
-wig needs a trim
-need to clip my wigs as they are just a tad too long and dont fan out properly
-necklace
-border detail

hmm i think thats it, i am so proud of this one just hope its all comes together fro manchester :D

the hair (Posted 12th June 2011)

ive tried to style a wig i have but high pony tail just does not work, ive looked into msking it but its not going to work not with my lack of wig tallent. and the only one i can find online is http://cgi.ebay.com/Belldandy-Godness-OMG-ash-blonde-wig-cosplay-2-plus2... its so beautiful but thats most of my budget gone if not all gone so i cant afford that. if i cant find one for roughly £30 im just going to have to use my own hair :(
