Ainsel (Dress seen on back cover of the second volume) - Fairy Cube


Kitacon 2009




Fairy cube is a three volume long manga from the creator of Angel Sanctuary and i'd urge people to read it. It's so good.

Ainsel had many wardrobe changes throughout the series (very much like Chii from Chobits) however this dress in particular is taken from the back cover of the second volume and is the only shot of the outfit.

The dress itself is made up from 14 seperate pieces which all had to be dyed individually to create the gradient/tye-dye effect that is seen on Ainsel's dress. The bottom of four pieces of the dress had to be done twice as the first colour they came out as was far too light.

Her gloves and leg warmer thing are all made from a lovely strip of lilac lace i found on ebay that is almost identical to the one she's pictured as wearing.

Currently she has a pair of wings that i bought from a shop, however i'm hoping that for the May London expo, I'll have finished her much larger wings that match the ones she's seen as having in the manga.

Really cute dress, the gradient dye looks really smooth. I like Fairy Cube, suprised it was only 3 volumes.
