Choosing Between Outfits

Hi guys!

I'm starting the pre-con process of making my cosplays for the spring and I need help in deciding between two outfits for the same character. The character is Umi Ryuuzaki from Magic Knight Rayearth and she has several outfits throughout the series/manga. I have two preferred ones and now I just need to narrow it down to one. Any help/opinions are greatly appreciated!

Option 1

Option 2

A little information, both outfits are about equally challenging for me so that won't be a problem. Just want to know everybody's thoughts! Thanks in advance!

Personally, I like the second better. Go with what you find more comfortable, that is what I would aim for at this point. Consider:

- Comfort
- Price
- Weather of con time

Update: August 10th.... still nothing.

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone make Umi's final armor (first one) so that would be really cool, and I've seen a few people do the artbook outfits for group cosplays (second one). Looks like you'll have to choose between weapons and armor, or lots of gems and gold trim.

I love all of the armor evolutions in this series, so I understand how hard it is to pic just one outfit. Whichever one you pick, I'm sure it will be amazing!

Thanks Larcenciel and Emrys!

Larc: The first two of your concerns are about equal for both outfits lol and as for the weather at the time of the con...wellllll it's in february on the east coast lol so neither one will be ideal but the entire con is held inside the hotel/conference center so going outside isn't really a necessity xD

Em: Hmmm....only cosplayers are faced with such decisions as gold trim and jewels vs armor and weapons lol and I know, I looooove all of the MKR armor evolutions, hopefully one day I'll get to do them all! *blushes* And thank you! I figure if I start now hopefully I can have enough time to do it really well :]

I think I prefer the second, but it might just be that I'm into the drapery part of it...
