|Final Fantasy VIII is a game that has escaped me for years,as i didn't have a copy of the game, but my brother kindly gave me an old ps1 copy and I've been able to get right back into it. Rinoa wasn't originally a favourite character of mine but for some reason this time round I've warmed to her and relate to her more so that was that, cosplay must be done! lol|
Fingers crossed I will finish this for Ayacon 2013. I'm having to keep things cheap on a tight budget so I may be buying a few things rather than making completely from scratch.

A knitted duster you say..... (Posted 17th March 2013)
I seem to be taking my time with this costume, and have decided to give myself more work by attempting to knit my own duster and arm warmers. I'm currently in the search of the right colour and amount of wool but i'm trying to be patient with it. I'm aiming to follow a pattern by lynlynlora, and see how i go.
I'll be waiting for you.........to start this darn costume! (Posted 31st January 2013)
Since I'm such a sillybag I take on too many projects at once and take forever to get on with them >_< But...I decided to make it a little easier for myself and purchase a few of the basic pieces, so I have a v neck vest and altered some black leggings(I just have the zips to sew in). I'm in progress with her marbled effect skirt, though i'm starting to doubt the colour choice, I think i went too dark...spend ages trying to choose between the shades in store. For her necklace I managed to find a plain silver ring in the shops and used an old chain I already owned.
