Costume Information

Cost : ~£80
Time Taken : Two months

Gonna put a fair bit of cash into this so I reckon it'll look good :) I'm about to start buying stuff - I've tracked down the clothes I need, then I'll need to make the horns and get a few other things. I'm planning to use my natural hair, since I couldn't find a wig that looked any better.
