Wai wai! You look so pretty! ^^ Cute cute costume!

Oh, I'm supposed to say something useful here, aren't I? Hmmmm....... *compares photo with May drawings*
Well.... It looks pretty darn accurate to meee! ^^ The only difference I can see is May's bow tails stick out more. *shakes her fist at gravity-defying bow tails* And you don't have bangs like hers, buuuuut I'm nitpicking here. XD It's really really cute! :D

Yaaay! I do hope I get to see you at A-kon! ^^ Just look for the girl dressed as a guy wearing a red cape with a big pink rose on the back on Friday. XD And on Saturday, look for a girl with a blue tunic and big black wings. And Sunday, er, I dunno yet. A girl with a frog helmet and pink rockets? XD
...But I will always have the Peppermint Patties. Ohohohohohohoho~ Come to me, sugar fiends! >=D (That's you, Ayaka! Heehee. j/k) XD I just hope I don't run out of them in like, the first day. That would be bad. ^^;
Oops, rambling again. Sorry. ^^;;;;

Thank you thank you^_^
Your right! her bow tails do stick out more, hmm maybe if I use a thin wire on the inside to make it stick out more.... nitpicking is what makes a costume perfect!! thanks again!

Heheh I hope i get to see you at A-kon too!!^U^ With a frog helmet and pink rockets I dont think ill be able to miss you^_~

hmmm peppermint patties makes May happy^_^

No problem! I'm glad I could help. ^^

Yeah, wire is exactly what I would try! ^^ *pokes around in her wire collection* Maybe 22 or 24 gauge? Good luck with it! ^^ *dances around in her frog helmet*

*gives her many Peppermint Patties* Wai wai! Happy May! :D

Hey that looks fab! Yep, wire those bow ends and it should be great. ^^

Cute costume... though I dunno which anime it's about, I'm a complete anime-novice! (though I should say I've seen some about Drabon Ball Z, Evangelion and... ahem... Sailor Moon and... er... Pow-kay-mon!)

I watched a few episodes of it with Ramon. Cute show.. I'm not really one for maid costumes I'd probably look like a chunk lol. What part of texas?

06-18-2002, 02:34 PM
where are you wearing this one to?

06-20-2002, 08:58 AM
Houston Texas *heavy sigh* Its not so much the hot weather but the humidity is the thing that makes you sweat.
I wore it to Project A-Kon ^^

06-20-2002, 03:59 PM
*nodnod* Corpus is probably as bad as, or worse than, Houston when it comes to humidity and heat, but that's not really saying much. bleh. i can stand heat, but 100000% humidity is annoying.

i remember seeing some people at a-kon and wondering how they weren't falling over from heat exhaustion.

and that's one thing that makes me think twice about dressing up as anything fancy or bulky. another being my lack of sewing ability :D

lots of people from texas on these boards, though. yeehaw. hehehe
