Oh wow I was blown away by this! This is great! I'm not really a sewing heavy cosplayer so I really shouldn't talk too much about construction of the dress itself though.

Only two things I think could help is to iron the dress thoroughly, since the wrinkles on your crosses were apparent, but I'd imagine there might be some sort of boning in there that prevents that yeah?

Possible the bangs on the wig could be cut a little shorter.

But to be perfectly honest it's really just nitpicking. This is pretty much spot on. Fabric choice, construction and makeup all came together for a great cos!

Wow, great job! The construction looks amazing! I love your little plushie too. The only thing that jumped out at me is that your ponytails look like they got a little frizzy. I'm not that good with wigs, but you could probably hit up some of the people on the wig forum for advice on a product to use to keep them in check. Other than that, it looks awesome. Congrats!

the two above me pretty much said what I had in mind as well, particularly the wig. Maybe it isn't the best kind? But if that's what you have, it's all good too. I personally would make the ribbons a little longer to give her more of a "rabbit" quality. But it also seems fine as it is. it is an amazing cosplay!!

I really appreciate you making a cosplay out of Rachel I hardly see any BlazBlue cosplays, and Rachel is just really fun to fight with. I adore the Nago umbrella and Gii stuffy! Great job

I think there's nothing else other then what's been said already..lol The crosses DO need dewrinkeling but again that's nitpicky..Nothing that will make or break it. The wig I have noticed is the same as all wigs I see for her..All of them are more "poofed" at the ends..By this I mean, look at her hair, it goes basically into a long spike..You can do this while still not looking bad by using hair glue in the tips. then using hair spray along the length to keep it straight. Not using a lot though or it'll harden.

I DO have to say this looks beautiful though. I love it

Thank you all so much for the critique. <3 I'll be sure to look up methods on how to fix the wig frizz and style it correctly, all of your compliments mean a lot too since this is technically my first cosplay, so I wanted it to be as accurate as possible. <3

This is a super nice cosplay! My only thing is in the one image where we can see the skirt it looks a bit lumpy (like it's uneven or has an uneven petticoat under it). It may just be that image though. Great work!
