This was my first non-fursuit cosplay of which I am completely proud - I didn't cut corners or take shortcuts needlessly, no haphazardly glued seams or last-minute fixes, it's all together and it all works!

The bikini gave me more trouble than I bargained for... the top I had to re-make three times until I found something that worked, but I was really happy with the end result. I was surprised at how comfortable this costume was overall!

Special thanks to Sparkle_Pipsi for this, by the way. She made a fantastic Ragnarok Dancer a few years ago, and was kind enough to respond to a few PMs. Her advice really helped me iron out the final details, like using interfacing on the lavender ribbons to help them stay flat and not just flop about - thanks!

Marked as 95% complete for now because there are a few details I'd like to fine-tune. I'd like to look into resin casting to get jewels with more "pop" and sparkle for the necklace and belt, and I never did make the prop whip I wanted to put together to go with this - ran out of time!

This experience was wonderful for my confidence. I've never worn something like this in public before, I was surprised by the reactions! I think I was careful enough not to become an attention whore, but I can't deny that it made me feel good about myself to be complimented so often. :)

My beloved came with me as my bard. It was incredibly fun to have someone to cosplay with who's just as enthusiastic about costuming as I am!
