Costume Information

Cost : approximately £40
Time Taken : around 16 hours on and off

Made to bust into the world of actually making my costumes instead of ordering them and hoping they fit me exactly, (hopefully) to be worn with a good friend of mine who'll be my Squall. Was a lot of fun to make, but I could have chosen a better fabric for the main duster/sleeves - it frays all over the place and my bedroom's a fabric-y blue mess. Still :P
Now it's finished I feel slightly accomplished 8D I sliced my fingers up pretty bad making the pinwheel but I don't think it looks too bad, so I can deal with it. I'm not too happy about the fabric I chose though - the duster's too tight aruond my bust when it should be a little looser, so if I ever make it again (unlikely) i'll choose a fabric with some give. Great fun making though. :D
