@ MDA: Could something like this be an option for you? http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/nordstro...resultback=131
I was looking into getting something similar for Edea when I finally make that cosplay. If not, hopefully your mum's idea will work for you.
Ha ha ha, yeah I can see how it might be tough to find time to wear all of the costumes you want. I am sure you will figure it out. Make sure you post pictures okay?
