Costume Information

Description
I don't care how long it takes me. I don't care how much it costs me.

I use to have this costume up on my cosplay UK account and I have wanted to do this costume since I first laid eyes on Albel in the game, but I was too scared to do it. I recently saw a wig tutorial on how to do Albel's hair which put me back in the frame of mind of Albel. So now I'm am gonna get on with making it while trying to style a wig for the first time ever .(Yeah for a first attempt wig i'm probably bitting off more than I can chew)

I'm not sure when I would be wearing this. I already have a quite full list for Amecon, but In the end if I get this one done before one of the other it might go with me. if not some other con later in the year or next.

I decided to go for the Manga version as apose to the game version, simply because I want a cape. the design is the same, he just has a cape extra

The main problem I am gonna find (other than that darn wig) will be the armour. I have never made armour before, but I am wanting to learn. So this costume is basicly a pratice costume for armour making and wig styling.

I'm gonna start with the wig. I'm gonna buy a blonde wig with lots of layers, dye the top and then start styling, then add the braids. I've have already seen a wig I want to use, but I want to pratice on a joke store one first because the wig is about £40
