weee!! Ok, I have wanted to post something on here to be critiqued for a bit so here is one that I think just needs to be seen a bit more heh. I know that the hair should prolly be a more purpley color but the wig i ordered was bluer than i thought it would be and I sharpied in the other colors(the purple sharpie just ended up looking blu eon the wig, boo). I love this costume even though no one knows it heh. So please tell me waht you think. Attached is a reference pic

That's beautiful! The colors came together soo well! Your wig is really nice too. Some people really have troubel with the belldandy hair. I like how you pick this costume versus the one that's more commonly done :)

^_^ thank you Mitylene. Yeah i really enjoy doing the different version espcially since i enjoy the manga over the anime

I think I'm color-retarded, but from the reference picture, it kinda looks like her hair is more of a steely-gray-blue rather than purple...
But you know what? I like the way the really bright colors of your wig go with the rest of the costume. If you're not going to be recognized anyway (or hardly), you may as well have some fun, right?

I really like this costume... You'll be wearing it to AB, right? ^_^

Wow, It does look good, and quite accurate! {now that I've seen the refrence pic} If I saw you at a con, I wouldn't have guessed Belldandy, but then again I've only seen the anime~~ But it does looks really good compared to the refrence pic you suplied! I say that It's really good to keep as is.... ^^ is there anything in particular that you're questioning on if it looks ok? ~~ But for some "True" critisism~~, about the wig, I know it's not much, and too hard to chage ~but I Agree with Ali, the refrence pic looks more faded blueish/grey but the bright colors you have do compliment the bright colors in the dress! I think it works well~~~ and maybe use alittle bit lighter shade of lipstick, it might soften your features alittle more ^-^

Reguardless, it's a very cute costume and you wear it well!! ^-^

heh, yeah I wasn't going for any particular comments reallu , but thanks :D and I shall try a lighter lipstick at Anime Boston when i wear it again :D If only Ihad time and money to redo the wig more accuratly but ah well

I'm quite pleased with this costume. I love seeing manga versions of things since they tend to deviate so much from the anime - and the costumes are usually more complex and original. You did a wonderful job... the wig? Don't worry about it. ;) It looks beautiful.
