About this Costume
Construction Details:
I originally purchased the costume from an online seller, and honestly it was a good idea! The quality is great and the bag is even functional! Only problems I had were the skirt and arm pieces. The skirt had to be remade due to it being too small (couldn't zip the two front zippers) and the arm pieces were too big! @__@ So I whipped up a skirt in 2 hours and took in the arm pieces. I also remade the woven armband.

Built the shoes off of some black ankle shoes I picked up from Goodwill. Made them of thin black vinyl and tan suede (from Megan's Ruffnut vest~). The silver belts are strips of that trim from Hancocks just flipped over and sewn down! Ta da~
Personal Thoughts:
I enjoy wearing this costume with friends, and would love to get a group as big as the one for D*Con together again! I love cosplaying with so many friends, and especially having an almost 100% complete cast! I would like to fix some small things in the future, but am very happy with it. In the end, it was worth purchasing it for under $120 and fixing the small things.


YOU ARE THE THUNDER AND I AM THE LIIIIIGHTNING~
