Description
I've been planning this for over a year as some of you already knew and I'm so pleased with how it turned out and the reception it got. Took more time than normal because of some alterations I had to make on the shoulders to get it properly fitted but in all it wasn't too difficult to make. The wig was done the night before wearing it so it wouldn't get crushed on the way up. Easiest part probably was the wig and the hands and feet.
It was pretty comfy to wear although due to the wind the wig got tangled a lot. Unfortunately ink somehow got on this and Celestine so we weren't able to do the masquerade as we had to get stain remover quickly. Hopefully it'll come out before Oct expo so it will be worn again!

Update:
Thankfully the ink is mostly gone from this costume and I'll be wearing it again for Oct Expo!

Thank you so much! I've not started on the coat yet, but the ink on the cape is almost gone so we'll be able to wear them for my birthday at expo. :3

The photos dont show how neat and tidy the staiching is on this costume

The wig is spot on and the whole thing i would have said was professionally constructed

This is a fantastic costume i hope you beat up the squid that inked this :P

Oh - these are lovely. How can I have been at AmeCon and not seen you?!??
Especially considering Belldandy is on my 'want-to-do' list.

Thanks so much Mike and Reis! I really can't believe what a great reception these have gotten, I'm really looking forward to us wearing them again in October!

Thank you! ^^ I love the version of Belldandy you want to do, I've never even seen it before! You would make a fantastic Urd too! I met you on the Friday at Ame but I was Seras then, we were in the comp too but I was spazzing so much trying to find a pen I didn't have chance to say hi again. >< If you're at Expo I'll have to come find you. :3
