Final Fantasy Series
Last Updated: 05-11-2006
This costume was originally thrown together for an ice cream social sponsered by RECCACon. The first version was just a white sweatshirt, jeans, fleece wings, and a big ol' bouncing ball on a headband (which broke at the end of the day woe). The trick is that I actually made the sweatshirt from scratch, taking the time to topstitch it and everything.. of course, that made it look store-bought.. which made it look like closet cosplay. Sewing skills, you are a cruel mistress.
The costume was revamped for Fanime 05, with the addition of a pleated skirt, fishnets, loose socks, and a new-and-improved ball, this time without a spring so it actually stayed up, and didn't bruise my forehead. AnimeExpo 05 saw the end of the sweatshirt, it being tooooo hot in LA in the summer, and the reveal of a tank top and crocheted shrug thing. Also added was an elaborate double-french ponytail hairdo with lots and lots of fuzzy white scrunchie things. This was also the only outfit I wound up wearing at ComicCon outside of the masquerade. It's constantly in the process of revision, until I wind up with something I don't mind wearing. :)
