I've made a fatal cosplaying mistake...I spent a ton of money, a ton of time, and then lost interest with the character^_^;;;
So, in order to fund my next cosplaying project, and so this one just doesn't rot in my closet, I decided to try selling it^_^;; I figured I'd ask if anyone would want it here before I sold it on ebay....because at least I'd know it'd get a loving home^_^
The costume is Dark Riku from Kingdom Hearts. It includes:
--the "ultimate" open-faced unitard in black, never worn, retail price of $72 at any dance store. It is fully fingered and footed, and goes up the neck for a realistic Riku look. I didn't paint it, but I'll send along with the costume all the royal blue/purple and red paint I bought for the costume (about 8 tubes) plus the floater solution that you mix with it to paint on the fabric.
--a muscle chest I altered to tie in strategic places in the back to give you the realistically defined muscle-toned look for either a guy or a girl
--a double-buckled belt, hand painted purple with the white "skirt" already attatched, lacerated aesthetically, and hand painted to resemble the purple 'fire' design on it. (It flows all pretty I might add^_^)
--a seperate detachable hand painted purple belt cross that goes on the front of the skirt. The sides of the cross are metal; again for the realistic look.
It doesn't include the boots, mainly because I figure I can reuse them in my everyday wardrobe^_^ You can easily make your own with a pair of knee-high black pull-on fabric boots and the paint and floater I'll send^_^
I'm not looking to make a profit, I just don't want to see ALL of the money I spent go to waste on something I lovingly almost finished.^_^
I'd be willing to sell for 70 (plus shipping), just to make back the money on the bodysuit at the very least^_^;; If no one wants, or knows of anyone who'll be interested, I'll try e-bay. Thankies^^
