Yes. . . it's happening. . . if i ever crossplayed. . i knew zidane was one i wanted to do, and now i am. . just lol right XD. I can feel the pain of chest binding coming back already. However I promise nightmarewings a while back, that when she does princess garnet, I would be her zidane and so forth it is finally put up, I have a feeling this costume is going to be painful and im going to regret this. . but what the hell, he has a tail and hes hot so how can i bloody well resist. . and them blades. . . just waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant!!!

To-Do List

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.


Jabot? (Posted 22nd July 2011)

Is that what its called??

. . just for the lolz? XD (Posted 18th July 2011)


Blades commision (Posted 18th July 2011)

My blades are being commisioned from Vexter :) as her zidane blades are da bowwwse!!!!! XD and shes my trance zidane :)

Collar added to shirt (Posted 18th July 2011)

not much to say, collar made, and then attached to shirt :)

Base shirt (Posted 18th July 2011)

heres my base shirt, needs a lot of work, but its a start :)

Orange mini belt (Posted 18th July 2011)

this is yet another thing that hangs off zidanes belts XD!!, I made this by taking apart a landyard, and then hooping the orange ribbon round the metal clip. Ta da :)

First belt completed and second belt added (Posted 18th July 2011)

Second belt has no detailing on it, it's just oddly postitioned on zidane, via being attached off a hanging bit that comes off his first belt. This mini piece is attached under the first belt and comes down. I then used clips to attach the belt in the way that zidane has his :)

First belt (Posted 18th July 2011)

The buckle is madr out fo strong cardboad, however im probably going to make a new one as i don't like this one. Clips are at the back of it so i can attach it round my hips. Then buttons added via hot glue :)

Wig (Posted 14th July 2011)

I purchased themagicalLucys old zidane wig :) i love it sooo much

Earrings (Posted 14th July 2011)

Made from my collection of beads i made, using superglue
