If you glaze them, they'll look shiny and awkward and when I wrapped the suede, the friction was enough to keep the wrap from moving. The jewelry wire is good for adding clasps in the back to make them easy to take on and off.

Edit: Never mind, figured it out ^_^

My only concern now is how to keep the bead strings from falling. Pesky gravity...

Going to read back through the thread and see how you dealt with it.

Thanks!

I've just started playing FFXII and I LOVE Vanille!
Hopefully I can cosplay her for Sakuracon 2014 or Kumoricon 2014. (:

Hey everyone! First let me say thanks to EVERYONE in this thread for all the helpful tips!! I plan to make Vanille sometime next year and this thread is a life saver!!

I plan to buy my wig from Lucaille, it's the perfect blend of pink and orange if you ask me

I also found this faux fur, it's pretty cheap compared to the others I've found and may work for the buttcape.

I also may buy these shoes, cut off the tops and glue some fur on there so it looks like Vanille's shoes.

Also, does anyone have suggestions for the pink/peach colored top? I want to use a fabric similar to the CG render (it's got a kind of grainy pattern to it) and I've found something but the color isn't accurate :/ I'm looking for a pinkish peach color. Also if anyone has a pattern for the top and the skirt that'd be great!

Thanks in advance

Just bought 600 wooden rondelle beads for my upcoming Vanille! I bought them from Goodybeads.com. Great selection of bead sizes :]

I also recently got the boots and most of the bracelets. The bracelets were purchased at Deb, and the boots from Target (not sold in store).

I'm going to be painting the boots and adding the fur to the top. Tried them on yesterday and they're SUPER comfortable!!
