|I've done Kairi's pink zipper dress already and thought this would be good to do as well. Make more use of my gorgeous wig!|
"Starts with an 'S'... Right, Sora?"
"Kairi, now fifteen years old, lives her life normally on Destiny Islands. She attends school regularly along with her friend Selphie and has noticeably aged, having longer hair and more defined features. It can be assumed that she has spent most of her time focusing on her studies, thinking about the boy she's forgotten, and hanging out with Selphie, Wakka, and Tidus - all of whom have returned to Destiny Islands safely. She's also become slightly more withdrawn because of Sora's absence, with wisdom beyond her years."

Base bag (Posted 30th March 2012)
Found this whilst browsing a charity shop and thought it would work quite well for Kairi's school bag. I've bought some brown webbing to make the handles and I'm currently undecided if I will add the white details with fabric or paint.
Socks (Posted 19th February 2012)
Found some bright blue thigh high socks on ebay that came from China. I only pull them up as far as the knee though.
Shoes (Posted 12th February 2012)
Bought some black loafers similar to the references from ebay. I just had to remove the tassell detail which you can still see on the left shoe in the photo.
Wig and make-up (Posted 1st February 2012)
Wig and make-up shall be the same that's used for my pink dress version of Kairi.

Fabric (Posted 1st February 2012)
I thought about doing this costume since I did my pink dress version of Kairi but my inability to find suitable fabric was what held me back. Then I saw a commissioners (Paper Cranes) school girl Kairi photos and the fabric looked really good so I contacted them to ask if they could source me some. Their supplier was out but they allowed me to have 2 metres of their own stock which should be plenty as long as I don't screw it up!
