|I love Crisis Core, so I knew I wanted to use a character from it as my first cosplay. I chose Cissnei cos she's awesome, and I wouldnt have to buy a wig.|
The hardest part was sorting out contact lenses, as I've been wearing glasses for nearly all my life but never before managed to put contacts in! I managed to do it the day before the convention, which was a massive relief.
I made the shuriken myself, out of cardboard, paper mache and acrylic paint. I thought it would take about 3 evenings to do, it ended up taking nearly a whole week :P I am very proud of it though!
