I've made a fatal cosplaying mistake...I spent a ton of money, a ton of time, and then lost interest with the character^_^;;;

So, in order to fund my next cosplaying project, and so this one just doesn't rot in my closet, I decided to try selling it^_^;; I figured I'd ask if anyone would want it here before I sold it on ebay....because at least I'd know it'd get a loving home^_^

The costume is Dark Riku from Kingdom Hearts. It includes:

--the "ultimate" open-faced unitard in black, never worn, retail price of $72 at any dance store. It is fully fingered and footed, and goes up the neck for a realistic Riku look. I didn't paint it, but I'll send along with the costume all the royal blue/purple and red paint I bought for the costume (about 8 tubes) plus the floater solution that you mix with it to paint on the fabric.

--a muscle chest I altered to tie in strategic places in the back to give you the realistically defined muscle-toned look for either a guy or a girl

--a double-buckled belt, hand painted purple with the white "skirt" already attatched, lacerated aesthetically, and hand painted to resemble the purple 'fire' design on it. (It flows all pretty I might add^_^)

--a seperate detachable hand painted purple belt cross that goes on the front of the skirt. The sides of the cross are metal; again for the realistic look.

It doesn't include the boots, mainly because I figure I can reuse them in my everyday wardrobe^_^ You can easily make your own with a pair of knee-high black pull-on fabric boots and the paint and floater I'll send^_^

I'm not looking to make a profit, I just don't want to see ALL of the money I spent go to waste on something I lovingly almost finished.^_^

I'd be willing to sell for 70 (plus shipping), just to make back the money on the bodysuit at the very least^_^;; If no one wants, or knows of anyone who'll be interested, I'll try e-bay. Thankies^^

*huggles Yuffie Leonhart* I wish the Riku obsession hadn't ended either, but it did T.T

I don't have any pictures, my scanner isn't working and my digital camera is nowhere to be found after we moved T.T

I'd be interested.

What size is the unitard? Is it basically one size fits all?

What form of payment do you accept? [this is my big limiter... ^^;]
