Construction Details:
Costume done for completion's sake, as I had already purchased the materials. ^^;; Construction-wise there's not much to the dress, it's a simple tube top with a 3 layered circle skirt attached. I couldn't add a zipper due to the fabric being kinda weird, so to wear it you slip it over your head and shimmy into it. lol I really liked how the flower choker turned out, and had fun working on the scrunchy boots! I opted to leave out the detail that's on the front of her boots out of personal preference.
Personal Thoughts:
PINK is my favorite color, and this is a really cute outfit... just not ideal for wearing in January. lol Also, Frontier fanboys make me cringe and cry so bad.

Styling Notes
HEY THIS WAS BACK BEFORE ALL THE PRE-STYLED RANKA WIGS. I'm really proud of how this turned out, even if I had no idea wtf I was doing at the time, ahahaha. It took me a while to find a base wig that I liked, since most of the green wigs I saw were uh, too green or too blue. Cosplay-Wig had this really nice "Emerald Green" wig and it was a good enough length for me to harvest the wefts. I cut off the excess, and made my own wefts (my very first ones too) using Kukkii-san's wefting tutorial, the "dog ears" are carefully measured and folded pieces of craft foam sewn into the wig with the wefts glued on using e6000. They do bounce with each step! I got so many compliments and questions on the wig, it kinda makes me regret not making some sort of tutorial or taking progress pics at the time. Oh well.
