Costume Information

Cost : £45 (wig, ribbon, shoes and socks)
Time Taken : About a month

Found some gorgeous scrap fabric that I felt would suit Ayane. I have never been much of a DOA fan, but the costume has caught my attention. I just hope I am able to pull it off without looking silly =P

I said this before but the progress is absolutely wonderful!! The wig colour really suits you!! <3 <3 To stiffen the bow, there's this stiffening spray that they use for collars and bows that might help? x

Thank you Ellen ^^
I will look into the spray, thanks =D

@Charny - Just go for it. It is not that difficult to make once you break it down. I'm finding it to be my easiest to date XD

Thank you both =3
Ranma1-2 - I don't know if I am going to Telford yet, it all depends on uni and finances but if I did go it would be this or my Nene; doubt I could make something new.

Awww you must come. Telford is cheap cuz theres no hotel costs.
...Then you could wear this and I would get to see it, and as a bonus you would see my Hello Kitty costume. :P

To-Do List

Giant BowHighComplete
Buy WigMediumComplete
Buy StockingsLowComplete
Buy ShoesLowComplete
Head BandLowComplete


Progress (Posted 17th January 2012)

Image 1 - Dress and Obi. Both have turned out wonderfully. The fabrics (colour and texture) go pretty well together.
Image 2 - Bow. Love it but it is not perfect. It didn't stiffen right and weighs down the obi.
Image 3 - Wig. Love the colour and the style, just needs a slight alteration.
Image 4 - Dress Detail. Just the butterfly now sewn on since image one was taken.
Overall I am really enjoying making this and I cannot wait to finish it. I hope it does turn out ok. Not bad seems as it is another scrap fabric piece XD
