10th September 2011: If only.. Ok so literally all I've done here is tucked the material in around the corset! XD But this is kinda what it'll look like? More ruffled though! :D In the process of sewing the skirt pieces together now! Luckily I kept the dress pattern I made for Sakura so I can use the skirt part for this. ^_^
The material colour is WAY too shiny on the normal side so I'm going to use the reverse side of the material instead. ^^
7th September 2011: It's a start... Joy! My wig shall arrive in the next few days <3! Expect pics if it's any good! Got some fabric for the skirt and sash, will begin constructing some kind of skirt-thing soonish. Not sure if I'll need to make/buy a pettycoat yet...also still looking into what jewelry to buy, giant hoops and shiny bangles. Mmm.
Should I get green contacts? <_<;; Iuno.

Esmeralda and Disney for the win!! <3 u will look beautiful as Esmeralda!! <3 and ooh what day u thinking of doing this? cos there's going to be a Disney group for the Sat of the expo ^_~ x
Ino - 10th September 2011
Yaaaaaaay :D You really will be fantastic, and I think you could easily do those other Disney girls in the future too! The wiggly looks fabulous btw~~ Really suits you! 8D
If you're lucky, maybe Barnaby will agree to escort you around Expo~

@Pandora Thankyou and yes she's awesome! <3 I'm not 100% sure yet but I'll see what I can do might require some quickchange on the day! X3;
@Ino Hee, thankyou! Yeah I'm pleased with how it looks actually! Barnaby escorting me around expo will be like a dream. *_* <3 So gotta get that photo, Barnaby and his bitches~! XD (I totally encourage you to do a Disney character someday too btw <3 You'd be amazing.)
Ino - 10th September 2011
I am sorely tempted do think about doing Disney, but like you I am torn between a few! >__< It certainly won't happen for Expo, so I'll have a think about it for the future~
As for contacts, you should do it if you want to, but I really don't think eye colour matters in cosplay too much - it can add something, certainly, but not essential! I would applaud you if you did though - so brave! *-* (Anyone who ears contacts seems brave to me XDD) Alternatively, you could have my eyes. They're not quite right but close enough :D

Bling: u haz it. In other news: this costume turned out lovely, dahling, and I think the hairstyle suits you very much as well. Should I say that you wear the character well, or is that just creepy? (!?)
Holli - 17th November 2011
