uh.. what do you want suggestions on? I helped a friend make that costume, and so I have all of the details memorized...

just from glancing at the costume, I would make your skirt much, much fuller. you shouldn't be able to see the fabric underneath at all. do you have the train? I can't tell, my monitor's busted and really dark - if not, I'd put that on asap, as it's a big part of the costume. I would also make an attempt at poofing out the pony tails, and get your makeup on better - any other costume it would be fine, but since that costume is all white, your face HAS to be totally white or it will show up very clearly.

and don't smile, man, you're Mana. =P

overall, very cute. if you want the design nit-picked, tell me.

white face makeup is rather easy to find - there's even a sticky in this forum about applying it, I would assume they have help finding some in there, too. if not, just search "Ben Nye makeup" in any search engine and you'll get something.

if you want it to be perfect, go ahead and improve on the stuff you say you know is off...? ^^;

Yep yep. Whenever I get the pictures uploaded I'll send you the URL. ^^;;

As for the heels: I feel your pain. I mean, I'm half your size and weight and my heels are only 6-6 1/2 inches but MAN the mofos HURT! My advice is just....... sit down. A LOT. To take the pressure off of your feet. Of course this is impossible if you're being swamped for photos or have to walk around to get to places but... eh... it's the best advice I have. XD;

Heels are just a bizznatch to deal with. Period. ^^; Feel and share da pain, bruthaman!

.... feel free to kick me at any time. I'm such a DORK. o__O

Oh! Duh. And the smiling OOC Mana thing! I know how that is too. Except... I can do the no-smiling, stoic, blank-faced thing pretty well since... it's one of my typical expressions since I space out a lot. o_O;; I don't have any advice to clamp down on the whole smiling bit since I don't have a problem with it... but... I guess just try NOT to smile? X_x;

Im just a shy little boy deep inside.....which brings out the smiling freak that seems to give off that impression that im going to kill everything that is cuter then me! brrrrrrrrrrrr.....but ya...i am a dork...*raises his hands* ohhh ya.....but the dorkiness wears off when i bump my head into the top of the door...
Buzzzzzzzzzzzzz
So your going to be attending AX i take it....TAKE A PICTURE OF ME AGIAN! i will show you how dazed and confused i can be!

Just taking off the shoes would be bad, huh? noone likes smelly men feet.....even though women sell their used socks and shoes on ebay for a good price.....(one of the many weird conversations i have had)
i like to to hear my own typing to much....not much to read here...but im new to these forums and i do wish to be a part of the family!
....intill im flammed, then i will go into my cave and hide for a bit.....
it wont be long...*feels the fire in the air*

Dude. I don't wanna smell smelly feet PERIOD. I don't care if you're a he, she or an IT. *laughs*

But yanno.. that's nature (kinda) for ya? YOU CANNOT ESCAPE THE TOXIC AROMA OF FEET DYING IN PLATFORMS, HEELS OR BOOTS!

So... just purchase in those aroma balls for your shoes and you should be set to go for floral-smelling feet and shoes!

I have useless advice, I know.

Yeaaaah. I'm gonna be attending AX. And sure I'll take your picture again. ^^ Hopefully I won't forget my cameras and stuff for AX, since it's get REALLY insane...

I was good at Fanime though! Had film, cameras and everything! x_x

NO WAIT! I DO HAVE SOMETHING
AX is so much better....yes its more commercial....yes their alittle stricter and for me....fanime was 15 min drive...AX....6-7 hour drive...and 237 dollars more to stay wed-sunday...speaking in which...next year im going to have to go alone....wonder if it would be safe for a little boy like me to come on here and ask like 3 people to split a room with me....
But most importent....alot more cosplayers, and thats 3/4ths the battle.
and OMG The dealer rooms actually have people selling things cheap! fanime....no selection.....
oh well.....
For a 4 day cosplay event.........is it ok to have two costumes................and use the hotels cleaning facility to wash each after use....
here is my point....i know everyone will think your not smart enough to use the hotels cleaning facility...soo......is it wrong to wear 2 costumes in 4 days...

Tulle huh? maybe i shall look into that
but for some reason my mind just goes to a blank and thinking about my lady friend....
she would trample all in her path to jump ontop of you as Miyabi........sometimes there is need for holding someone down....
she doesnt care if there female or male.......she see's someone dressed as well as you are in your Miyabi cosplay....she gonna take you down...
Anywho....can't think now...all i see is a movie running over and over in my head, of her attacking you...
she needs to calm down....its not healthy to be that obbsessed even if its Miyabi...
