Costume Information

Cost : £50
Time Taken : 20 hours

Has been sort of haltingly in progress for a while. Now I actually have a reason to finish =]

I haven't had the time to make this quite as accurately as I wanted to, and I'm not so sure it looks that good. However, I still love the character, so let's still be Rikku for the day <3

Hopefully re-doing parts and completing properly enough so that I'm happy with it, although I don't think I'll ever be completely happy. Should be wearing again for October Expo 11.

Would you like me to send the photo I took of you when we were just sat talking?

It's a shame you never felt confident in the costume, because you suit the character to a T appearance wise!

I only saw this from a distance, but it looked really good!

You shouldn't put yourself down so much :)

Re-make (Posted 29th September 2011)

I had a terrible day back in May when I wore this. Due to exams I'd had to rush parts of the cosplay which meant I was unhappy with how accurate they were and I didn't have time to do everything either. I was supposed to be in a masquerade group, but I half heartedly tried to find them and then went home early instead =/

Anyway, I am re-wearing for October Expo 2011. I am remaking the armbands and hope to have done the glove and weapon as well. If I have time I will also be touching up the shorts. At some point I'll upload a photo from May and then get some proper ones in October =]
