Almost freaking done. ALMOST. I did a small photoshoot with this, and my friend maria was nice enough to use her nice camera (it's much better than mine lol) to take some shots. I still have to get a garterbelt and possibly some new stockings. I bought some stockings but they didnt come with a garterbelt. Might just see if i can find a garter belt somewhere xD In any case...I still have to get my ears pierced and add the belts to the sleeves but the belts and the garter thing aren't really high on my list of needing to get done. The earrings are first and foremost. I did not make the jewelry or the wig. I bought both of them off of ebay (Jewelry was handcrafted). I had to fix the bun on the wig with some hot glue since it was just pinned in and kept moving. I was afraid it was gonna fall off. I also added the beading on the braids myself. But i made the whole dress along with the yevon plush. That was enough in itself. I think in total i have about 7-8 months of work in the dress alone. I took a year break from it after i made the belt skirt since i knew this costume was going to cost alot. I also needed to plan out the corset and many other things. It was my first time making a corset as well so it was definitely a challenge and super fun. I'd like to throw out a big thank you out to Jonetsu for helping me out with any questions i had on how to do the belt skirt/corset. I know there are some things that are different about this costume and i wanted to have my own touch with the belt skirt. I do have more pictures to post but i'm holding off since my friend didn't want me posting "Naked pictures" XD she wants to play around in photoshop with colors and stuff/lighting etc. She's super picky with how they look which is fine lol and she just really wants to play around with a couple things. I told her i dont want parts of me photoshopped since I'd like to keep it real :l I'll get some more up soon.
