About this Costume
Construction Details:
This costume has been in progress for about 2 years. While many things are really really finished on it the fact I waited 2 years made things fit weirdly and I had never tried on everything together till the day before the con so the fact that there were so many layers made things not lie how they did straight on me unfortunately. The wand was carved by Vortx0178 out of wood and foam. The cut out on the back of the bodice was really hard as was sewing on all the ribbons and the white ring around the skirt. Due to the fact I made the white ring on the skirt myself I didn't think about how thick it was and in sewing it on made the skirt puff out awkwardly :( Also irritating is the fact the bow was perfect when I made it and in going back and forth between home and college atleast 4 trips now it has seen some abuse and the ribbons I used to originally shape the tails were bent and will be fixed before I take more pictures of it. That summer I was in China so I sadly I didn't have a lot of time to finish the props so many of them look rushed I know. In many of the pictures the head bobble things flipped behind the crown and I was unaware so the bobby pins show and it frustrates me to see them in pictures so for now I won't be posting many pictures. Despite the anime figure being sold at most anime cons and even at some best buy/ borders type locations I didn't have anyone recognize it at the convention _-_ oh well though, it was fun aside from the shoes were beyond painful XD
