|Cost :||£15 (plus £22.50 worth of leftover fabric)|
|Time Taken :||15 hours (mostly on handsewing)|
|About time I do a Final Fantasy cosplay :D|
The idea came from having some lovely pale blue fabric in my sewing box that were parts of an old costume from my earlier cosplay days. Being like 7.50 per metre and in good condition despite its age (after a wash to remove a few minor stains) I decided to put it into good use and because I always loved the Songstress dress sphere (its so cute in battle! :D) I felt Lenne would be a good choice :)
Thinking of wearing this for the Kitacon ball ^^

Almost there! (Posted 21st January 2014)
Been a bit lazy in the past fortnight but the skirt and sleeves are done. Just got to finish the ruffles and get some good hair clips then ill be done ^^
Lace is pretty! (Posted 5th January 2014)
Made the shorts out of the fabric ill be using for Suzaku and gathered the lace into an elastic waistband by pulling It with all my might through the machine. Just need to sew the skirt to the shorts and might hem them a little more to make them look even sexier :p p
Pattening the sleeves now and gonna finish them in the morning :)
Lace received, belt ordered and beads started :D (Posted 31st December 2013)
I need to buy some elastic to finish the skorts and get some extension clips for the beads :) Ill go into town when I am no longer ill ^^
Lace and beads ordered (Posted 26th December 2013)
Finally ordered the fabric for the skirt and I have the black lying around for the shorts :) (I also have some black tulle around which I miiight consider putting into the skirt for modesty.
I have been thinking about the beads. There are debates around the net to whether they are earrings or hair extensions. I always thought they were from the hair when I was younger but alot of cosplayers think they are earrings.
Realistic I may make them as extensions but Ill wait for the beads to arrive and decide what I would be more comfortable with :) I will be using my normal hair so pinning them into the inner band part of the wig wouldnt be a option sadly.
All I need is elastic now :) Will get that from the shop instead! Got a little bit of handsewing left to do! Woohoo!!!
Handsewing (Posted 6th October 2013)
My sewing machine hates layers so Im gonna have to sew the sideskirt and ruffles by hand. Looks like its gonna take a while but this is what DVDs and living rooms are for :P hehe
Already made a start on the tack sewing :)
Its surprising how heavy the top can be XD Its gonna be even more so on the day I wear this because of the hidden pockets XD
Pins and pins AND PINS!!! (Posted 22nd September 2013)
A few adjustments and on to sewing ^^
Made a start! (Posted 19th September 2013)
After planning to start her too many times and not doing it, I have made a start! *shockhorror*
The base is nearly done but the armscye is a little tight so that would need taking in. The ruffles are getting there but at the back I plan to add more fabric to add more volume as it it looking pretty flat there. The side skirt needs doing but I can do that now as I have internet access and more references to be able to get the right shapes ^^
The dark blue has a nice cottony feel with some stretch to it. The ruffles are pinned now.
