Kairi
Kingdom Hearts II

Cosplayer: Leonie Heartilly

Variant: School uniform

Status: In Progress

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

30th March 2012: Base bag Found this whilst browsing a charity shop and thought it would work quite well for Kairi's school bag. I've bought some brown webbing to make the handles and I'm currently undecided if I will add the white details with fabric or paint.

19th February 2012: Socks Found some bright blue thigh high socks on ebay that came from China. I only pull them up as far as the knee though.

12th February 2012: Shoes Bought some black loafers similar to the references from ebay. I just had to remove the tassell detail which you can still see on the left shoe in the photo.

1st February 2012: Wig and make-up Wig and make-up shall be the same that's used for my pink dress version of Kairi.

1st February 2012: Fabric I thought about doing this costume since I did my pink dress version of Kairi but my inability to find suitable fabric was what held me back. Then I saw a commissioners (Paper Cranes) school girl Kairi photos and the fabric looked really good so I contacted them to ask if they could source me some. Their supplier was out but they allowed me to have 2 metres of their own stock which should be plenty as long as I don't screw it up!
The fabric isn't perfect but it's the best I've come across so far.

Fabric for the skirt looks spot on :D i know the feeling of putting certain cosplays on hold hunting for the correct fabric, major pain >_<.

Thanks hun, we must dance to Gee together! I'm hoping it will be played that night =)
Yeah it's a pain. Remaking my original Rinoa is on hold until I can find ribbed fabric I'm happy with, don't trust asking Dream Angels for it...

And ah i see (Rinoa's duster fabric is a headache, main reason I've put it on planned, i wouldve tried knitting it but i keep messing it up >_< so gonna leave it for now)
And yea..I think I remember you and another person pointing out Dream Angels' services, pity really, their fabric for her duster looked quite nice.
