About this Costume
Construction Details:
I found a Southern Belle dress at the costume shop and thought, "Wow, this would be a great base dress for Kihel." So, that is what the bottom of the dress is made from. The top part of the dress was originally made from dress shirt with a pattern embossed on it, but then I switched it to my more floofy top that I have for other costumes. For the brooch, I took a gem from the craft store and glued a pin to the back.
Personal Thoughts:
This was one of those early costumes where I thought that I didn't need a wig. I was most obviously wrong (and sorry, I've VIP'ed those old pictures). I've revamped this costume with a wig, and a more accurate top for Fanime 2011.

Styling Notes
I cut the bangs and made four sausage curls. I curled them around a poster mailing tube and are secured with a lot of hair spray. The back curls came out better than the front!
