So, as you can see I've had quite a few costumes before, but for those, many parts were either bought items, or commissioned items.
Orihime is the 1st costume I made wholly and completely on my own, sewing from scratch.
I've decided I hate sewing. The top was a complete bitch to make, and at first I had to wrong fabric for the hakama, so I had to remake them a day before leaving for California, when I should have been packing. ...They still don't fold right- I had to sew the pleats in. How do the Japanese do it?! Starch didn't work either!!
Anyway...I know I'm fat, lack Orihime's facial structure-or her assets-, and that the costume is not fitted properly. But for a first time costume, basically speaking, I don't think I did all that bad. I learned a lot at any rate, and that will be important when I make my Jihl costume to go with my sister's Lightning and my brother's Hope.
So not a total loss.
Would I wear this again without refitting it first?... That I'm inclined to say no to. But hopefully I will wear it again, even if Orihime is whiny and annoying. I just love the Orihime x Ulquiorra pairing after all.
