I have a few costumes I would like critqued on. ^^

First is my Puchiko.

Next is my friend's Rabi~en~Rose. I made this one too. I realize that the wig isn't right in the pictures because the one I ordered didn't arrive on time for the con... so I had to use his Xellos wig. Improvisation at it's best. =P

I have never seen the origional character for either of these costumes, but since your Puchiko costume had some of the character in the background, I can critique a little, It really does look great! the only thing I can suggest is putting hair wax in your bangs to give them that chunky spikey look. The other one is cute too I just think it needs to be ironed.

Ironed and dry cleaned. I was going to Iron it before Sugoicon, but our Iron shorted out. ><;; So I tossed it in the dryer and prayed most of the wrinkles came out. They didn't. ><;

Lovely costumes!
I like the way you did Puchiko's hair. It's pretty darn accurate, and I haven't seen many other cosplayers that get it right.

Okay, critique wise (this is all directed towards the Rabi~En~Rose costume):
- It's hard to see her dice in these pics, but I think you should find a bigger pair. Usada's are really huge and those don't seem big enough to me.
- Her shoes need the ribbons that lace around her ankles.
- Doesn't Usada have a little heart off to one side on the waist of her dress?

Thanks! I love that wig. Everyone thinks it's my real hair too. =P I had so many compliments "Oh, you have such pretty straight brown hair! Did you dye it?" XD

I've got a new wig, and I guess it would be a good idea to have huge dice too. =) I forgot about the ribbons. I brought some with me to attach to the shoes, but I forgot about them. And yeah, we lost the heart in all the luggage for the con. I need to keep these things together. ^^;

I love them both!! But I have to agree with Toka on the Rabi~En~Rose outfit ^__^. Wow that is a wig? I thought that was your real hair lol XD. Very well done ^__^.

Bobbi,
Love the outfits, especially the first one. The first one really looks alot like the character... not so sure about the second one since I don't know of the character. Are you going to be wearing any of these to Ohayocon? If so, I'll see you there!

I just adore your Puchiko; I can't really see anything to be improved.

With regards to the Rabi~en~Rose, though, I completely agree that it needs to be ironed and it needs bigger dice. Very good job on improvising with the wigs around, although (as a diehard Xelloss cosplayer) I personally think it makes a better Rabi~en~Rose wig than a Xelloss wig (not dark enough purple, too short, and not floofy enough). But that's just me.

Tell your friend who did Rabi~en~Rose to stand up straighter, like in the second photo! The head-slouching in the first pic really makes the costume look shoddy when it's clearly not, especially with the off-the-shoulder dress.

haro! both costumes are really cute ~ you can see the amount of time that went into them ^^

the only comment that i wanted to add was ~ doesnt puchiko have little tiger stripes on her feet? you might want to add those :3

and i'll also say (just because i cant tell from the picture ^^; ) do you have the small smiley face on your hat? i'm picky on details, yes. ^_^

good job overall! <3
