Selphie Tilmitt - Final Fantasy VIII

Information

For i-c's ff8 group c:
Having now studied the storyline, and played a bit of FF8, and read an amusing re-telling of the story, I love Selphie as a character ^^ She's so so cute!

I'm using the brown boots I use for Rikku for this. They arent that accurate, but I'm too lazy and would rather focus on the dress and wig
Dress is made from yellow corduroy.
I've never styled a wig before, so this one is really messy. But I tried my best and suffered many allergic reactions to the hairspray so I'm determined to be proud of it haha pleasedontlaughathowbaditis

Wearing this costume is so fun ^^ The dress is really comfortable, and my mum lent me her awesome comfy boots because I lost mine somewhere. The ribbon was irritating though as it kept slipping!
The wig... bane of my life. One half stayed together wonderfully (the side you can see in the photos, I posed so the bad side was hidden), but the other half slowly collapsed throughout the day, assisted by bumps and seatbelts XD I will fix it though, as I want to wear this again and again ^^ I LOVE BEING SELPHIE

NEW PHOTOS UP 8D Last minute choice for the photoshoot was last-minute, so I forgot to take in the dress and fix the wig XD Fortunately Luminescence is a wizard and magically repaired the wig while I floundered around like a lost and useless fool XD

Oooh this is too cute! I love how you did the hair :) must've taken some serious work to get it to stay all bouncy like that!

Thank you everyone <3 @Sammykins Yeah the wig did take a pretty long time, though I should have spent more on the side that collapsed so that it held up better ;.; Hopefully will fix it soon!

wig 2

Tried making a start on the wig~ Never tried properly styling wigs before so this is very daunting XD

Half of the wig is styled~ I have to do this in halves because I seem to have a skin allergy to hairspray. The hairspray seems to work pretty well so I'm sticking with it.

wig

I bought a wig! Though my hair dryer is at uni right now so I can't style it properly :/ I'll try blitzing it with hairspray and see how it copes on the train journey XD

woosh

Again, work was put off on this o.o but but I cut the dress shapes today! I'm going to start putting them together over the weekend.
Sadly my cat decided it wanted to claw the fabric to I had to spend a lot of time fixing the littlee pulled threads on the corduroy (which WAS going to be spent sewing dress panels ¬¬)

Lets go!

So I bought a shell charm for the dress zip 8D Imma start making this over the weekend 8D
