Costume Information

Cost : fabric-£15, wefts- £25, shoes-£10, other- £20.
Awards : Tokonatsu '09 best cosplay
Time Taken : about 2-3 months.

Its been impossible to get good artwork of her, there's so few screenshots of the opening movie and such a lack of official artwork from more then one angle;
but with all I've found, None of them agree completly on colouring ot details.

The crystal was impossible to find in the correct shape, and the artwork and in-game for it differ so much.

Her wig was formaly the one I used for Princess Nina; I sewed in wefts to get the correct lengths for the plaits.

This has been hard to make, pretty much everything that could go wrong has,

She is my main costume for Tokonatsu '09, I was going to wear her to oct expo '09, but since I canceled going to that, I wore her for J-culture con '09.
She got reworn again for the sunday of may expo '10.

Its still in good condition, but I might do a little tweaking to it. The wig needs a little care as its getting a little bit frazzled and I want to go over the handstiching to make the sleave detail look the same.

Hey, you were infont of us in the pre judgeing, I really likes your costume, it looks so well made and looks like it won't fall apart easily (something that is definatly nessasary lol). It's a shame i didn't get to see you in the masquerade as you were before us but from looking at the photos of the masquerade you looked awesome!

Great job ^_^
