I know that this has been done plently of times but this was my first cosplay that I worked the most on so I learned lots of new sewing skills. At ACEN, people told me it was the most accurate they saw but I told them they were being bias and I wanted to enter the masquerade but one of my friends was lost during the time when you entered so I wasn't able to...but tell me what you think and what changes could possibly be made.

Your costume looks great. A few changes might be to switch the belt, Yuna has a blue-ish/grey-ish belt. And the extra flap sort of thing coming out of her shirt has more of a darker grey color. Other than that, your costume is awesome

Thank you, I know the belt isn't right...I lost mine at the last minute and this was the first thing I could find...>.<

The main difference I see would be the boots, actually. They're a bit darker, I think, but I don't know how easy that would be for you to change if you're interested in doing so. :thumbsup:

The only thing I would add (and I have this problem with every songstress costume, including my own) is that the side skirt needs more lift. Of course, Yuna's skirt, as far as I can tell, is physically impossible. I added netting between the layers to give lift and sewed floral wire into a rolled hem to give that lettuce leaf look. It helped, but it's still not... 'floofy' enough. So, yes, the only thing I would suggest is more 'floof'. ^_^

Well I'm glad you got your skirt right! I've seen so many wrong ones. I really like yours. But I got my side drapes to lift just fine. I wish I had pictures of it.

But I like your costume!! It's a good one!! Congrats!

So good. I hope my first serious cosplay turns out that well. I would try dying the ruffles around the shirt in a white to grey gradient that matches the grey stuff that hangs down the one side. And yeah...the floofiness it has in the game doesn't work in real gravity. Great costume.

Great Songstress I really Like it. ^^ The only things I had a problem with was the lacey side skirt needs to me more. . . fooffy . . . I think. . And the boots They are a darker brownish color and the top is a tanish color too. Other THen That I really like it! Im glad to see someone actually make their skirt from lace with shorts ( Lot of people don't good for you ^^ )

Das boots are different. They have 3 different colors of suede with scalloped edges. And I can't tell if the white on the top is socks or not...

Love your plushie! It just adds that cuteness to your costume!

Otherwise- very accurate costume. Hopefully you'll be able to masqurade at your next con! Good luck!

Alright, my input: Your transparent sleeve things should be a darker shade of blue.
Different belt, but that's already been covered plenty.
Different boots, also already been covered.
I noticed the lack of gradient. That can be hard to do, though. Dying isn't fun.
The fit of your shirt. It's not a big thing, but it would look better if your shirt was fitted. ^_^
This last bit is the most important to me. Where is your earring? @_@; Yuna's earring is a big part of her costume, in my opinion. (Usually a heavy part too, ehehe...)
Anyway, I think it's a very good job for a first cosplay. ^_^ You should be proud. I think it's good that you care enough to ask for people's opinions, too. I hope I didn't seem rude.

No one offended me, I was happy that everyone gave me input ^-^ Uh...sleeves...I was trying to find a darker shade but I couldn't and I have seen people not have them transparent at all so I wanted to keep them transparent to keep accurate.

I just recently got a belt so I will have to take pictures of that soon...after finals...o.o;; And boots, I have never seen a pair of accurate boots...only once as a someone's commission but they had high heels. So I was happy with my boots for now since I got them for twenty dollars and then a second pair of shoes for five cents ^^; I plan to make boot covers but it all depends on my time this summer.

Gradient, yes, dying is no fun >.>;; Of course, most people just have it white which peeves me off...can't they see it is greyish? o.o;; And not many do the layers also. But the sideskirt is my pride and joy...I love the way it turned out and it flies out when I spin ^^; I like to spin...sadly...

I can't believe I forgot the earring for those pictures...I have two actually and the one I was wearing for the day was quite heavy so I took it off for a bit and I told my friends when we went to take photos to remind me to put it back on since I knew I would forget. But they didn't remind me ==;

But thank you for all the comments! I really appreciate and by now these suggestions will keep me busy over the summer along with my other cosplays I am beginning to work on.
