Information

Aerith was never my favourite character, but I did love her in Kingdom Hearts. More so than in KH2, since she's voiced by Mandy Moore (One of my favourite singers) and her overall character is just more useful and likable. I preferred this costume to her others anyway.
It's probably my most comfortable costume to date, mostly because of the shoes which are just like slippers xD
I first wore this at MCM Telford in Feb 2009, when it was still only a baby. Since then I've vamped it up, and improved the dress and the wig for when I took it to London Expo May 09.
None of the costume was terribly difficult, just tedious. Especially sewing the button holes for the dress (which one of my textiles teachers actually showed me how to do specifically xD).
The wig took me a few tries to get right, but I'm pleased with the way it turned out.
I love wearing this costume, because most people know the character, but I've never seen another KH Aerith at the same convention, and it's nice to know you're the only person cosplaying a certain character xD Only problem is I haven't met any other Kingdom Hearts 1 cosplayers at conventions either! D:
