Description
J_mercuryuk came up with the designs and idea, I jumped on the bandwagon. We are trying to put together a full steampunk group for Final Fantasy VIII for Amecon 2012, but others are more than welcome to join us, hopefully we aready have a Zack Fair as well. So if you want to join in drop us a message.


So Far We Have:

Selphie: Messengercat
Irvine: Ryanontoson
Quistis: Tif
Ellone: SamanthaKaiba


As for the costume the skirt was a pain until I had a brainwave running up and down the stairs at home, the top was the most terifying thing to cut and sew because the fabric was expensive and you can't actually see in these photos the first part of this I bought which is a locket thing hanging from the other side of my skirt.

The things I have learnt from this are that the DIY shop is great, I am perfectly capable of confusing the poor guy in the watch repair shop and PVA mixed with paint is teh only way to get a colour to stick to swimming goggles.

j_merc - It is, it's going to be so much fun! And the avvie is from Lollypop, I got bored and couldn't resist.

Pandora - Thanks, it was rather fun to make, if a bit frustrating at times.
