Oh man, this cosplay was a ton of ups and downs, and I almost left it unfinished. Due to my friend cosplaying as Snow with me, I decided to finish it. This cosplay ended up costing me around $200 orz
I don't really like this cosplay...actually, I wish I didn't start it. But I hope to make good memories in it and end up enjoying it. I'll wear it again to Fan Expo 2012.
Wig- Bought it already styled, but then the band snapped on the ponytail, and I had to retie it a few times until I got it right. I cut the bangs, but the next time I wear this, I'd like the style it more accurately.
Shirt- altered from a long-sleeve plain white button-up shirt. I think this was the most annoying part of the cosplay orz
Skirt- custom printed the fabric on spoonflower using this pattern-> http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=serah+skirt+pattern#/d3zerax and then sewn into her skirt, added lace & that gold thing
Duster- I made this a while ago when I was sick....so I don't really remember how I did this orz;; I made the pattern and just sewed it together
Leg bands- the silver bands are pleather, while the diamond armor is craft foam
Arm band- made out of pleather glued together using fabric glue
Shoes- bought some shoes off eBay, and painted them
Necklace- my best friend made my necklace out of fimo clay, I don't have any specifics on it since she made it. She's so lovely! <3
Bracelet/Hairtie- bought the beads and I strung them on
All patterns were a joint effort between me and my mother.
I'll be selling this cosplay soon~
