12th April 2016: Overview I absolutely adored this costume. Like... words cannot express how happy it made me feel. I'd had a bit of a crappy day on the Sunday and then I went home to get changed, I did my super sparkly makeup, got on my rocking eyelashes, succeeded in putting my hair up exactly how I'd envisaged and then... the skirt. The beautiful skirt. I was in love with this.
Two layer, full circle, the floatiest swooshiest most beautiful piece of loveliness I wore all weekend.
I walked backed to the con through the NEC just as a little mix concert was getting out, hordes of pre-teen girls who were absolutely delighted to see some kind of witch/princess hybrid walking through their crowd. I got called Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother, both of which I was more than happy with! One woman and her daughter (who had been explaining cosplay to her mother) correctly identified it as fantasia which meant I was already utterly delighted before I even hit the con!
Everybody was beyond lovely about this costume, I got so many compliments and it was generally just a really big morale boost at the end of what had been a slightly trying day, the skirt swirled beautifully when I danced and I generally had a wonderful time.
I was only sad to change out of it for the party, but I knew I could never rock out in this skirt and my feet were killing me from all the heels all weekend!
10/10 would Mickey again.
