Information

This was a remake of a costume I had done before that I was no longer happy with. Partly because I cut the skirt slit on the wrong side because I drew the pattern for the skirt on the reverse side of the fabric so when it turned over it was mirrored.

This time only the front of the bodice is lined in klona cotton because it needed to be shaped and the back is just lycra with elastic in the top hem to help hold it up (not that it worked). The skirt is a half circle skirt, also lycra and trimmed with a glittering trim I found in my local fabric shop. I thought the trim made it look more like a petal and helped outline the crossing over at the slit on the left side.

The shorts and armlets are from the old costume but the boots are no longer boot covers. They are instead pink gogo boots that have been folded down and zipped up. Mainly cause I need them for other cosplays so I didn't want to have to buy a second pair and cut them.

The chocked is new ribbon but the old flower.

The wings are coloured acetate and lined with sequins and worn with elastic.

The wig is from Coscraft with blonde clip in extensions to imply Flora's highlights.
