This costume was first made in five days. I was asked to be part of an OMG group with two cosplayers whom I really look up to: Athena-chan and AngelicStar. So, I did the best I could in the short amount of time I had, but ultimately outside events kept the group apart anyways. @_@
The dress was a simple pattern I made in a rush. I layered some lace on top of white cotton, and used prismacolor markers to make the blue pattern.
The wings are almost entirely craft foam, and they were sewn together by hand and painted by hand. Unfortunately, I had never made wings before, so my wing harness fell apart the day of the shoot. I'm working on a better method now. =(
I am pleased with the quality of this costume considering my time and money constraints, but it is not my best work, definitely... and I never want to rush that much again!
