Link works,

and yes that looks like leather to me which makes sense to match the fur pelt.

Didn't test your link, but I know which image you're talking about. It looks like leathery to me too. You can also see the material for her top better. I'm quite mixed toward this, because that colour + leather = sounds difficult....

Yeah it sounds like quite a challenge but I think I may still attempt it. Me and my perfectionist inside me! I agree with everyone else on this thread that cotton gauze is a good fabric for the top from looking at the image

Hello! I have a question for all you Vanille cosplayers out there. I looked through for wig reviews and couldn't find something that fit my specific question, Can you recommend any Vanille wigs that have enough room to fit long hair underneath? I have had problems in the past with pigtail wigs that wouldn't fit my hair under and I had that awkward spot at the back of the neck where my own hair could be seen.

I guess it won't be easy to find one, because everyone says just "fits most of the people" or things like that. I can suggest you NOT to buy this one, it's beautiful and cheap, but it's really tight. http://www.ebay.it/itm/New-Pink-Fina...#ht_6855wt_892
I guess you just have to look at how much loose it is in the back view pics.

@arijahn How are you putting up your hair when you put your wigs on? That can make a big difference in how well a wig fits on your head. I have thick hair that goes halfway down my back. Usually I braid my hair and pin it up on my head but for my Vanille wig which was smaller than most of my other wigs, I had to do pincurls since they were more compact in order to hide my hair at the bottom of the wig. Just a tip in case you can't find a larger wig you like.

Have you looked at Arda wigs? Their wig caps are larger than ones you'll find from the average Chinese sellers on ebay. I'd suggest looking at their Chibi wig in Salmon. You'd just need to move the pigtails down and curl them and cut the bangs.

I use Classe's character wig for Vanille (B version). My hair currently reaches the bottom of my ribcage and it fits fine (back when my hair reached into my thighs, I had trouble even with Classe).

It's a discontinued product, but Etika has the B version in-stock. Surugaya (another shop on Rakuten, mostly dealing in figurines) also has a used B-version of Vanille in-stock. The benefit of going through Surugaya is that they ship directly overseas, so you can cut out the shopping service. It's also a used product, so it's cheaper.... Someone sniped the used Lightning wig listed by Surugaya before I got to it TAT

Etika: http://item.rakuten.co.jp/etika/clc028b/ (in-stock)
Surugaya: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/s...tem/7787594-1/ (used, in-stock)
Lovepop Studio (sister site of Otamap, which operates on Rakuten): http://www.lovepop-studio.net/SHOP/clsclc028b.html (out of stock, reference only)

I have a question:

So, I'm very new to the cosplay world and I've never worn a wig. Could you recommend a good Vanille wig?

Would this one be a good one? ^.^

^ If you like that picture, I'd recommend you go to the source, Ghost Cos.
It's about $16 USD and change. A shopping service (taobaospree, etc) would charge about 10% as service fee. Then, there's int'l shipping; most services offer 40% discount after the first kg EMS shipping... but that's probably pretty moot unless you get a bulk order.

For the record, this is the one I am using.

I'm trying to piece together her Necklaces. I was thinking of useing model magic, then layering them with Gesso, then painting over them, and then glazing them on top. Would this work?

UPCOMMING CONS: Anime Midwest, Soycon, Daisho con.
Upcomming Cosplays: TBA
