|Time Taken :||25 hours aprox|
|i love the series and she was one of the characters i could play without too much trouble. |
the con came up without me realsing and my sewing machine was in another part of the country, so its handsewn.
i was so happy with the colours of the purple; they worked so well, so did lining the white 'dress' thought i got realy annoyed with the lining satin.
the shoes i chose were the closest i had to her shoes in my wardrobe, they are also realy comftable.
it was quite cold to wear (in mid october)and the hair beads were realy heavy.
i was glad it survived the day, and i was happy it was apreciated by others at the con and in my anime and manga society (who i went to the con with).
as it was my first costume i fully made the learning curve was quite steep, and i learnt alot from making and wearing it so i will be able to improve on it when i remake it sometime in the future.
