Cos-tober - and the winner is...

Cos-tober has now finished, but we wanted to say well done to all who took part during the last month.

White Tigress

I have been thinking back about what I would like to improve on for Pomex :) A new wig-I dont mind losing a bit of accuracy as I think Ill feel better with fuller bangs. New boots-I was suffering from a foot injury and had to discard the original red boots due to this. I want something comfier. Side belts-Not a task you will wanna do at 5am XD Lacing- Again, 5am isnt a good time for this xD Shirt- Gonna so something so the seams wont appear through the fabric. Might look into just sewing all the visible white into the costume and removing anything that wont be seen. Coat- I always liked her White Mage coat so its just a nice little extra to wear in the cooler months :)
