View Full Version : Help with a formal cosplay?

So, I'm going to the Ball at AnimeVegas and I'd like to cosplay to it. I was wondering if anyone would help me try and make Serah Farron formal. I think that's who I'd like to do.

I mean, I want to wear a gown...but that's all I know.

Can anyone help?

Okay so I'm inagining a white dress on her, and to keep it clost to the costume. I think you should keep something clost to the top, but instead of it stopping as a top make it into a full length dress. where the side panels come in at the shirt, turn that into a full length dress that cuts off the main paneling with all the buttons. For the sheer over coat make it into an actual coat with sleeves that goes down to the floor. The Jewlery she is wearing allready is fine.

IF you want to make it absolutley spectacular you can turn it into a two peice ball gown by keeping the top, but adding in a red (or if you want to go plaid you can) ball gown with a 3 to 6 hoop petticoat and keeping the side panels the same but letting the main panel drip fown the front to the floor, keeping up with the buttons the whole way. Abandoning the sheer overcoat for a whole overlay of the sheer fabric you have on the red skirt.

If you want to keep it simple you can base it around a celtic renaissance dress with goth/lace accents.

Sorry I am not useful with words since I am a more visual person. I sketched out what I was meaning if you would like to see.
