|Time Taken :||FAR TOO LONG|
Aftermath (Posted 16th November 2012)
So, expo's been over for a while now. Think I've finally recovered XD Loads of people took my photo, and everyone seemed generally impressed by my outfit (even if a few people did call me Moxxi)!
The costume held together quite well, I mean, it could've been worse. The velcro on the underbust refused to stick, I was literally sticking it the night before. I sat down in the hotel at the end of Saturday, and it all just fell off. The straps for the underbust hated me, I ended up with brown armpits where the paint wore off... Plus, I had little sores where I had to use stuff to stick the foam to my skin, cause it refused to stay attached otherwise. What else? Oh, I didn't wear the new contacts (the really comfortable ones ripped) because I couldn't see and they were hella sore. My feet were so swollen (4 inch heels are not fun for a heel virgin) and I was tired from all the walking, but that's to be expected.
If I wear the costume again, I need to change a few things:
Other than that, it should all be good (providing the paint on the dress doesn't wash off)! I'm already thinking about next year's costume, but got DojCon to prepare for first!
Spent the whole day with Yuki (Posted 15th October 2012)

All I have left to do (I say 'all' ):
PS. tried on one of the contacts, took me an AGE to get it in... don't look particularly purple on me tbh...
