Costume Information

Cost : Around £80
Time Taken : N/A

Costume itself has been commissioned for me by due to the fact im not that confident yet with making my cosplays so felt this to be a bit out of my league ^^' It's really good quality for what I payed for it and arrived very quickly (A lot quicker than I thought) and fits perfectly. So I would deffinetly recommend for commissions ^_^

For the shoes im going to be buying a pair of converse-style ones and then hopefully alter them to look more accurate. For the gloves im going to be borrowing Chris' tidus gloves LOL

Also going to make her earrings from filmo clay xDD

Shall be wearing this on the Saturday of May expo, hopefully as part of a FFVII group xD

Shall also be taking part in the guiness world record attempt for most gaming characters in one place XD

When you do this, unless you're planning on wearing the Converse shoes can buy fake ones for £5 in some cheap shoe shops LOL

Wig Changes & Shoes (Posted 4th May 2009)

Got some converse style shoes ^^ Still debating on whether or not to alter them, if I do I need to get some black ribbon xD

Also an update on the wig~
It arrived the other day along with my Yuki wig, but im not really that happy with it T_T but Seph who I commissioned it from has kindly arranged to meet up with me the friday night before expo to fix/alter it for me at no extra cost ^^ so i'm hoping after a bit more work it will hopefully look better~ It is VERY brown which obviously I can't change but im hoping it won't matter too much...I would have prefered it a lot darker but ah well~ So hopefully come expo day will all be okayy ^^

Iv'e also bought some big black buttons to add to the skirt ^^

Costume Is Offically Here =) (Posted 24th April 2009)

YAY Costume has arrived =) by FedEX ;) and iv'e just tried it all on and it all fits perfectly YAY XDD and is actually really good quality I think =) for the price I payed I mean and it was made and arrived very quickly so i would deffinetly recommend the place I got it from ( ^_^

Only thing's wrong with it is the white shirt is a little bit big/long so going to take it in a bit ^_^ and theres no pockets on the front of the skirt so I may try and possibly make some or maybe a bag of somesort but im not too bothered about that to be honest ^_^ Im just happy its here in time, fits me and was worth the money XDD

Wig Is Complete =) (Posted 22nd April 2009)

The wig is now also finished =) I still need to pay for the other half of what I owe tho so I don't actually have it yet but shall upload some pictures when I get it =) I'm slightly worried that it may be too brown tho ¬¬ but hopefully will look better in person and if it is too brown i'll just have to hope that it doesn't notice that much~

=) Costume & Shoes 22/04/09 (Posted 22nd April 2009)

I decided on as the place to get the costume from ^_^ and ordered it last friday. Just had an email from FedEx today to say its 'in transit' so should be here by the weekend hopefully =) As for the shoes my mum's gona buy me some converse style ones and I shall then hopefully alter them to look more accurate =)I think also im just going to borrow Chris' tidus gloves as thier very simular instead of buying my own (Low on funds again LOL) Still need to make her earrings though~
