Rabi-en-rose

I finally got the pictures up of my finish rabi-en-rose. I am in the working of changing the wig color but tell me what you think of the costume. Any advice or comment is welcome.

I worked really hard on this costume, this is my pride and joy.

Thank you, I worked so hard on those things. It just kept bugging me that everyone who did HER didn't get her ears right and I was not going to make that mistake with my costume.

Very cute! Just a few things:

The apron- you might wanna do a tiny little stich at the corners so it doesn't flop over when you're walking around like in that last pic- it did just a tiny bit

And hair: Are you gonna get a pink wig?

Looks pretty good, probably the only thing I would change is getting thicker ribbons for the wrist.

Yes, I am getting a pink wig soon, also I have been having trouble with the waist Bands but I think I am getting closer to a good fit. Still working on it though.

Any suggestions would help??

I LOVE the ears! *_* Mega-kawaii! I think your costume came out extremely well overall, since you said that you were trying to change the wig color I won`t nag about that but, I second the thicker wrist ribbons, Great Job! Thats a really great costume!

Wow, you nailed that costume! o.o The ears are terrific, you have them the right size, shape, and they are very perky too (most Rabi-en-Rose cosplayers can't seem to get that aspect right, as the ears can be rather awkward). Loving the dice, and your choice of fabric for this costume. I myself tend to shy away from shiny fabrics for costumes unless it's called for, I noticed a lot of people who cosplay her use satin and the like and it's not really what I like to see in a Rabi-en-Rose cosplayer (or almost any costume, for that matter...). Very clean, crisp appearance overall with the costume. I can't really see anything bad about it. The hair might need a bit improvement, but it's difficult to style a wig like that, so it's understandable.

Woot ^^ Its AWSOME! You really did a nice job on it! Your ears are so big 0.0 and fluffly how did you get them to stay on your head so well! and Your dice O.O so kewl ^^ I reall ylike your socks too. Anyway the only thing that I noticed that I was going to be picky about was the bow arround your neck It looks really nice only I wouldn't have made it with fabric to me it wouldn't give the rabi~en~Rose like effect I think using ribbion or some sort of shiney sturdy fabric would have looked better .. .buuuuuttttttt thats just Me ^^ I really like it though! one of the best I have seen!

Generally, I have a problem with Rabi~En~Rose cosplayers, because nearly all of them get at least one aspect of her look wrong. [She doesn't have bright purple hair, people! Deal with it! *has seen one too many Rabi~En~Rose cosplayers wearing neon purple wigs*]
But your Rabi~En~Rose is really accurate! The ears, shoes, and dice are three major details that a lot of people mess up. However, you did a great job on all three. I love the bigness of the ears, and your shoes are perfect. I can't tell what color your wig is in the pictures, is it deep burgundy? (I know you already said you're changing the color so I'm not critiquing that, I'm just curious)
I salute you! You've got the best Rabi~En~Rose costume I've ever seen. Great work!
