When I met Pandora a couple of Minami's ago now, we bumped into each other as Vocaloids and had a few photos. The next time I spotted her it was as Mulan and I snuck up behind her and said 'Too skinny, not good for bearing sons'. This has become something of a running joke between us and somewhere along the line I said 'wouldn't it be hilarious if I did the Matchmaker?'

Then further along that line it actually happened.

This costume was made on the cheep for fun and actually features my town Ariel bodice and my old old old Temari sash. The skirt is an old dress folded over, hence the random waist bumps. The teal bit is an off-cut from something else, I don't even know what. And the purple top was made with £4 worth of fabric. That is how 'on the cheap' I mean. XD
