Costume Information

For a while since reading Fairy Tail I've had a bit of an interest in cosplaying Erza, but I've never been too sure about it. I've only really chosen to get round to it as my boyfriend got into Fairy Tail and hopes to do a Gildarts cosplay, so i told him about it and he said I should go for it.
My main reason is that she is my favourite character because of her personality and magic power revolving around armour and mainly swords which I love and gives me a chance to wear a red wig XD
I'm hoping to try to get the basic clothing outfit that she has done for Kitacon 4 at least, as i will be mainly focusing on completing my Mami cosplay, so her default armour will have to wait for another time, when I don't have uni work to worry about as well.

General (Posted 18th February 2012)

So far I have the top which I need to add the ruffle look to the sides of the centre and tighten it, as bought online but is a big, loose size 12 probably due to the fashion at the time.
I have the ribbon to make the neck tie.
I've got the boots; I love the look of them but they are going to kill me as they are high heeled, good for giving me height, but even the gel pads cant stop the fact that my feet have never been good with high heels.
Got the wig, which is the perfect colour and great length, but not the best quality as its small/tight on the head and has messy fibres around the fringe =/
All that is left to buy is the material for the skirt, which is being difficult to find in store, so I have to resort to buying from the internet and at least getting the right type of fabric but probably not the exact shade of blue.
