So, my cosplay "goal", if you will, is to cosplay all of Aerith Gainsborough's outfits. Before I made this one, I was in the middle of making two other outfits of hers, but I'd come to a stand-still on both of them. It was rather annoying, really, because I was feeling really productive! So, I went to the fabric store just to browse, when I saw the perfect red fabric for Aerith's Wallmarket dress. I snapped it up, and bought a couple of things to make the Holy Materia with (which my boyfriend painted for me while I was sewing), and I managed to finish the whole cosplay in a day!
