Costume Information

Description
Fiiiiiiiiiiiinally got to cosplay from FFIX. Not so underloved anymore, but a seriously important game in my childhood and now. ^_^ I love it when people cosplay undercosplayed characters so thought it was time to do one myself. :D

A very cute, simple, comfortable cosplay. The top was made in two seperate pieces and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Then the skirt was made from LIMITED AMOUNT OF MATERIAL...X.X So it didn't really turn out the way I would have liked...but still I think it looks fine and I'm especcially happy with the pink designs on the front and back which I had to study tiny reference pictures (and just guess for the back :S.) But I think it's fairly close. ^_^ I would have liked to have boots with this...but I was working on a limited budget so had to go for the cheaper option of leg warmers with pink shoes...which I actually think looks cuter! The black top was also made by me...and is pretty self explanitory! I love the tail in this costume! It's attached to elastic which goes around my hips. It's totally poseable due to the soldering wire that runs through it, I also padded it with stuffing and added the pink detail that alot of Mikoto's forget!

I had SO much fun in this with the rest of ffix-uk! It was a joy to be part of such a vast ffix group! ^_^ Even if the day turned out to be totally zomg BUSY!! XD Also was really exciting to take part in the masquerade...see our skit here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INngghk3c08

Also thanks to everyone who recognised me, I know Mikoto is a kinda minor character but I do think she's important to the story and deserves to be paid homage! ^^

This was a nice surprise for me =D
All the other characters I got straight away...but you I stopped, squinted at, and then started tugging on my best friend's arm "I know who she is, I know who she is!"
This looked brilliant and was really cute. Hurray for undercosplayed characters from awesome games =D
