Costume Information

Cost : 50p
Time Taken : 4 days

Just a simple one, put together using elements I already had to save myself some time.
Have been wanting to do a more elegant Disney costume for a while, and really was aiming for something easier to wear for a small convention.
So I decided on Aurora, after doing a wig trial for fun while de-tangling my Ophelia wig and having tumblr tell me it looked ok. This was a costume I could make warm and wind proof (very important for leeds in november).
The only cost was the grey fabric for the blouse, which I found 3/4 of a metre of for 50p in a scraps bin, the rest all being remnants from other costumes.
0nly a handful of people knew what it was at Thoughtbubble, although I had a lot of older ladies recognise it on the bus. If this gets worn again it will either be with lil sis' phillip cosplay or she'll wear it herself.

love the full length picture... sooo cute!!!
just one quick note though (please please please don't take this the wrong way) but i think you should spend some time in front of the mirror just practicing your smile... it just looks a bit strained in some of your more recent picture (especially anya)

Thanks everyone, and Beki you know why that is and it has nothing to do with lack of practise.
