(rikku) This costume is still in progress, if you could not tell. I'm not sure when / if I will be able to finish it with all of the plans I still have, but hopefully it will happen. I worked really hard on the wetsuit itself, and I don't want to do it any injustice...
So far, my experience in / with this costume has been quite mixed. Sewing the wetsuit itself was, while one of the more challenging projects I've had, which required a lot of critical thinking, it was also to most relaxing. The armor-esque stuff, which is SO not done, started out great, and then gave me more grief then any thing in any costume in my life. Not only did I forget a two pieces which got lost in some void (and discovered after anime expo), but the arm pieces kept falling apart and things wouldn't settle the way they should have.
The wig was a bit too small for my head, which scared me... this being my first actual styling of a wig.
The arm fins were also very frustrating to make, but I am SO proud of them that I could just die.
Aside from construction, the at-con stuff was pretty OK. Putting aside my misery of my falling apart armor, I was able to walk, and sit, and move like a normal human being. Which was awesome! But, only two people knew who I was...
A few people asked me which dress sphere I was, two people asked if I was the alchemist dress sphere, and two people just straight up asked who I was and what was I doing with a group of FFX characters ._. waah! I knew I should have started early enough to make the awkward face helmet thing!
All in all, I wish I could wear contacts for green eyes. But alas, I am a pansy! xD
(auron) This costume was a last minute "commission" of sorts, and done on a $20, 3 day budget. I think it came out great all things considered =)
