Costume Information

Cost : £30- So far!

~Love Love Looove Esmies costume! I'm determined to do at least one Disney character and I had a few options on my list (Pocahontas, Mulan, Belle, etc) but managed to wittle it down! Love the colours, and her hair *_* and she's just such a kick ass character! :D

Hopefully I'll get all I need through the post to make this in time! :)
ALSO! I don't have to worry about being too tan! Waheeey! XD;

Yaaaaaaay :D You really will be fantastic, and I think you could easily do those other Disney girls in the future too! The wiggly looks fabulous btw~~ Really suits you! 8D

If you're lucky, maybe Barnaby will agree to escort you around Expo~

@Pandora Thankyou and yes she's awesome! <3 I'm not 100% sure yet but I'll see what I can do might require some quickchange on the day! X3;

@Ino Hee, thankyou! Yeah I'm pleased with how it looks actually! Barnaby escorting me around expo will be like a dream. *_* <3 So gotta get that photo, Barnaby and his bitches~! XD (I totally encourage you to do a Disney character someday too btw <3 You'd be amazing.)

I am sorely tempted do think about doing Disney, but like you I am torn between a few! >__< It certainly won't happen for Expo, so I'll have a think about it for the future~

As for contacts, you should do it if you want to, but I really don't think eye colour matters in cosplay too much - it can add something, certainly, but not essential! I would applaud you if you did though - so brave! *-* (Anyone who ears contacts seems brave to me XDD) Alternatively, you could have my eyes. They're not quite right but close enough :D

Bling: u haz it. In other news: this costume turned out lovely, dahling, and I think the hairstyle suits you very much as well. Should I say that you wear the character well, or is that just creepy? (!?)

If only.. (Posted 10th September 2011)

Ok so literally all I've done here is tucked the material in around the corset! XD But this is kinda what it'll look like? More ruffled though! :D In the process of sewing the skirt pieces together now! Luckily I kept the dress pattern I made for Sakura so I can use the skirt part for this. ^_^
The material colour is WAY too shiny on the normal side so I'm going to use the reverse side of the material instead. ^^

It's a start... (Posted 7th September 2011)

Joy! My wig shall arrive in the next few days <3! Expect pics if it's any good! Got some fabric for the skirt and sash, will begin constructing some kind of skirt-thing soonish. Not sure if I'll need to make/buy a pettycoat yet...also still looking into what jewelry to buy, giant hoops and shiny bangles. Mmm.

Should I get green contacts? <_<;; Iuno.
