Costume Information

Time Taken : About 10 days

This was my not-so-secret cosplay for Ayacon 2013! Well, it was more of a suprise for someone so I ended up referring to it as the 'secret' for quite a long time!

This is from my favourite scene in the game. IF YOU HAVE A 3DS AND NOT THIS GAME PLEASE FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY. It really is an awesome game <3

The dress is made from blush pink duchess satin. In-game it's white but I felt that this was too wedding-dress-esque so I chose a very pale pink instead. The sashes are light pink fairy organza and fuchsia chiffon.
I made the corset and sashes all by myself, but my Mum helped me a LOT with the skirt because of time constraints.

Ayacon 2013: I wore this on the Sunday evening, not expecting to go into the party. But after the pub quiz, I heard some awesome songs from my childhood blaring out so I had to run back to my room to change, as I didn't want to attempt to party in such a pale dress haha!
I plan to wear this again at future cons as I'm really really proud of it! I think it's now my go-to gown for con balls!

Hopefully going to wear at Kita if there's a ball!
