Costume Information

Cost : £50
Time Taken : 2 months

EDIT* will be updating this for Amecon, the beads need restringing onto stronger elastic and the wig needs some restyling, hopefully I'll be adding the binding rod!!

Cosplayed as Vanille as part of a FF13 group for midlands expo.
Actually made three costumes for this, Vanille, Lightning and Cid Raines^^

This costume was quite easy to make when compared to Seth or Cid Raines but perhapse was not the best idea in the middle of febuary! very cold :p

Again I am really happy with the wig... didn't like the colour of any pre styled ones so I brought a long wig in the right colour and cut and curled it

Awww, you really suit Vanille and I agree that the wig you used is a really good colour match for her =)

Beads! (Posted 9th May 2012)

Today I decided to start re threading all of the beads for this costume onto stronger elastic as the old elastic kept stretching out of shape each time I wore it, annoyingly, it seems to be taking a lot longer than I remember >_>
