It felt so unreal to be in a costume like this for the first time, even if it *was* super craptacular XD. We thought we were pretty boss at the time though, of course :p.
The bows were actually done by my friend, Glay. The gloves (except the elbow rolls), the tiara, as well as shoe covering was done by QuantumDestiny because I was working too slowly ^^;;. Thanks again guys! Since then, QD has become quite the gloves expert!
I used swimsuit material for the bodysuit, twill for the orange part, and broadcloth for the bows. Sad sad... Oh and the chain is spraypainted metal hehehe. That was fun, though more time consuming than I thought (as always...). At first I thought about doing something to represent her "Love & Beauty Shock" attack, but she still does use the chain in that season and... well, it's cooler, duh!
