Costume Information

Cost : £20ish not including wig
Time Taken : 6 hours dress/skirt accessories 4 hours?

This costume is now offically retired. Mainly due to the fact i had to be cut out of it at May Expo :( damn you lady lumps! but however this is probably one of my fav costumes to date. I loved my flower head piece and i loved my pink dress. <3 you shall be forever missed <33

Making for Minami <3 for the Gurren Lagann group.

please note this is the first costume i've ever made without a pattern *cough* exception to the skirt..stolen from sailor scout pattern. It took me 2 attempts to make the dress, silly i know but I'm just not good without patterns ^^'

24/03 - My dress is halfway there : D, front panel cut out... now back, hemming, tailoring and sorting out those mofo sleeves...hopefully will be all lovely and done by tonight :3 then craft foaming times

later on 24/03 - I finished the pink part of the dress : D it took about 4 maybe 5 hours to hemming my white skirty : D

later later on 24/03 - skirt hemmed : D i love you wondaweb goodness<3

Ya those shoes sure are cool, but I think the pain will be the same as wearing the boots though as I used those shoes before lol

And thank you for that complement, you can expect to see me at Memorabilia on Saturday in that Misa costume otherwisem watch out for me at the Expo as Straight jacket Misa lol

and that costume here your making looks good, that wig is very promosing, I know you got it from the same shop I got my wigs from so judgeing yer past costumes would prove it as the best in Gurran Lagen series ect^__^
