Cosplayer Serephita > Costume of Aeris / Aerith Gainsborough from Kingdom Hearts
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Took my Dissidia dress, removed the jacket and slapped on a leather belt that I painted purple. The belt itself was constructed in a similar manner to the Squall belt I made for DarkVyse88; I bought an unpunched leather belt base, painted and sealed it using special leather paints (to keep it from cracking), then took metal button covers from JoAnns and set to work! I unbent all of the little teeth on the back of the button covers, and hammered them all into the belt, then took my grommet holer and punched a hole on each end of the belt, and strung some leather cording through it. The bracelet is really just a bunch of silver bangles (as annoying as they are) that I bought. Shoes are from my Dissidia outfit as well, and the bow was one that I made just for KH - and yes, it has interfacing in it to make it stand up straight. I attached it to a barrette, since I didn't like the idea of wrapping it around the clip and messing it up.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I didn't realize how much I missed cosplaying Aerith until this year, I guess!
