Information

Aika is one of my fave SoA characters, I love her so much she just makes me think of myself a little.

So why not do her?

The boomerang will be a task and a half to make. But my wonderful brother is going to help me make it.

Aika isnt for an event at this moment in time. But I will let you all know when she is almost done so an event can maybe be used.

16/5/2010 - Aika is in progress! I am buying the wig after expo, and well she will be started the second I get my fabric for her.

9/9/2010 - Two wigs are needed for this cosplay, Aika has her hair down at parts of the game so I will have a down wig and one that is up in the plats. So if I go out I can have the one that is down and not look silly.

17/10/10 - Ok so less than two weeks to go and Aika is no where near done, I still have the dress to do, make the belt style the wig, make sure the boots are sorted. GAH loads to do!!!!!

23/10/2010 - Little update, still got loads to do for Aika, shes getting there slowly she will be done for expo! SlimDefinition will be here on thursday so she is gonna help with touch ups and such. And I will probs be working on it friday night anyway.

28/10/2010 - Aiks is done! I just need to add a few things to her but shes done. the day before expo! Whoo so no staying up all night for me! I cant believe it!

BRING ON EXPO!

You like the hard to do hair cosplays don't you? xD Good luck with this hun! xx

NightmareWings posted on 28 January, 2010 - 22:12
I do indeed! Its fun at the end of the day lol. Thanks hunny xxxx

She's getting a taste of the "hard to do" costumes in terms of detailing with Alicia though! As am I with Hrist, heh. Get going with Aika when you can though! I've almost got half of Belleza's sorted already. The annoying bit will be the detailing on the bolero jacket, and finding a suitable corset.

NightmareWings posted on 29 January, 2010 - 19:56
I am starting her soonish! After Alicia and CC Aerith is done.

OMG YES!! love this character!! love this game!! Have always wanted to do this!! I wish you all the luck in the world, because just trying to figure out the hair and the crystal boomerang hurt my head!! i cant wait to see how you approach this!!

NightmareWings posted on 11 February, 2010 - 22:43
Lol, thanks hun. Yeah the hair is already in my mind and the boomerang....well it's kinda worked out already in my head aswell. Lol. x

You would have to have coathangers in your hair XD or alot of hair putty! The boomerang shouldn't be too hard :)

NightmareWings posted on 16 May, 2010 - 18:30
Loads of hair products in it I think. I dunno what I am gonna do yet. I'll either get a really thick wig or get a thin one and sew in extenstions.

this is gonna be cute! Her outfit almost reminds me of Selphie from FFVIII lol. Good luck with the hairdo!

SlimDefinition posted on 2 June, 2010 - 21:48
As soon as I can figure out the bolero and leg guards on Belleza, I'll be working hard to get her done for when you do this.

AWESOME!!!! Really can't wait to see this, especially the hair and the boomerang!! ^__^

NightmareWings posted on 3 June, 2010 - 22:02
Oh hello! Hehehe yes she will be rather fun to cosplay. The boomerang is gonna be a challege. Starting that at the end of the month, and getting the wig at the same time.

NightmareWings posted on 9 June, 2010 - 22:34
Thankyou letmelive, I'm going to have two wigs, one down and one up. So I can chop and change if I want.

the boomerang does look fun (if challenging!) to make! what are you going to use?

NightmareWings posted on 9 July, 2010 - 11:56
I have no idea Wizard, I'm trying to work it out at the moment

SlimDefinition posted on 29 September, 2010 - 18:05
Where's the progress with the dress! We took pictures at mine! You need to pull your finger out and get stuff done madam. I'll carry on with the boomerang when the wet weather lets up.

Boomerang is looking swish! Cant wait to see it done! What happened to the dress?

NightmareWings posted on 17 October, 2010 - 22:57
My boomerang is looking so awesome! I wont get to see it till the thursday before expo though :( I killed the dress, it ended up being too small and such so I am making it from scratch. Just hope I do her justice.

SlimDefinition posted on 18 October, 2010 - 17:39
I'm sure you will do her justice! Remember it's not the size of the plane that counts, it's how you fly it. ;-) Just need to get more paint now. You owe me a few lunches/dinners at expo for the boomerang. ^_^'

Raye-chan posted on 18 October, 2010 - 17:53
You will make a lovely Aika ^_^ x and Boomerang very impressive Mel ;)

FuriePhoenix posted on 18 October, 2010 - 18:55
