Alright so Vanille...yep I'm insane xD Oh well, we knew that when I cosplayed Lightning from FFXIII-2 in less than two weeks! x3
~ The shirt. The shirt/bra thingy is made of a cotton blend, because I thought it was the most accurate (hers seems to have some tiny white splotches in there along with some texture, which the blend has). I got it at Fabricville, in those little squares of fabric you see for $5. I recommend at least 3 for the top. I drafted the pattern myself in about ten minutes, complete with the two darts at the bottom. There's an elastic going around the bottom to avoid awkward boob-shots xD
~ The skirt. For the skirt I bought 2m of yellow cotton and goldfish orange Dylon dye. I also made the pattern myself for this. I gradient dyed it, and I think it turned out pretty well for a first time ever ^_^ I likes the whole pleated look for the front of her skirt, because frankly, I am in love with pleats xD
~ The fur. I basically made 1/2 of a circle skirt with half my waist mesurement, then cut out a flatish half-circle of vinyl and hot glued it on xD The pouch is made of unknown fabric (seriously, when I looked at the tag, it said "unknown fiber" or something like that O_o) and bias tape. The silver thing is made of Sculpey with leather straps and beads hanging down. The sash is made of the same cotton blend as the shirt.
~ The shoes. I bought a pair of boots from a thrift store for like $8 and added fur to them :P
~ The bracelets. I got all these off eBay for like $20. 2 white silicone bracelets + 2 12-pack thin metal bracelets.
~ The necklaces. Made of Sculpey with jewelry clasps at the end, and GIMP string wrapped around.
~ The beading. I used only pony beads. For all the details attatching the strings of beads together and such, I used Sculpey and vinyl. Over 2000 beads used.
~ The backpiece. Craft foam. The turquoise bit is also craft foam but painted blue with acrylic then turquoise with Miku nail polish xD Careful, if it doesn't have an acrylic coating first, the nail polish with literally burn right through the foam O.o
~ The wig. I haven't received it yet.
~ The binding rod. Made entirely of insulation foam and craft foam. It was a little too flimsy at first, so I papier mache'd it and it feels better :) Then I attacked it with acrylic paint and then a gloss finish.
~ The belt. Made of craft foam. The silver/turquoise thing is made of Sculpey, and painted with silver acrylic and turquoise nail polish.
~ The earrings. Made of Sculpey, which I burnt horribly but it didn't matter cause they had to be a blackish silver anyway xD They are clip-ons. The paint is a 30/70 mix of black and silver paint.
