This is Nel in her released form. I have to say this was a very difficult costume to work on! It's not the exact way I want it but I'm happy with how it turned out considering the majority was made last minute. I was still sewing it at the con up til just before the photoshoot. Work takes up alot of my time so that's why I had so much work to do last min and I say I made it in about a week and a half since I only got to work on it on my one day off a week for maybe 4 hours. Mostly at night instead of sleeping...lol
Improvements are still being made! I want it to look like the version of her from the anime. Which means the color of her fur should be like a tan....so I'm considering coloring the fur to match that of the anime. I already had the white fur and no funds so I just used the white fur I already had. Otherwise I probably would have bought and used a tan fur.
More photos so the whole costume can be seen coming soon!
