About this Costume
Construction Details:
The cut out in a knit was new. I kinda did it before with Saber but I really didn't want to add glisette if I didn't have to. The front of the shirt it 2 layers on both the original for C2E2 which is what's in my construction pictures and the 2nd version from ACen which is where all the completed pictures were done. The first time I just cut out the heart and folded it back and sewed. It was already starting to fray at the edges. So the 2nd time I found this fray lock glue from E6000 which works so much better than fray check. It didn't discolor the fabric like fray check does and seals better.
nThe belt buckle for the skirt was a nightmare to find and I eventually ended up finding this one on etsy from Spain. It's still not actually as big as I wanted it but it was the best I could do and not pay like $20 for a plain buckle.
Personal Thoughts:
It's done but there are still things I'd like to adjust. The skirt needs some work and I still need a hammer. I also need to wash out the wig and go see a friend who is a wig god to teach me how to really style it.

Styling Notes
I did some self styling for C2E2. I did trim a little from the ends and flip them as best I could. The bangs I trimmed a lot more off and was pretty terrified to do so. I usually don't have heavily styled wigs. Zelda and Maya are the only ones that have much detail in them but this was a lot of cutting and styling. For ACen a friend of mine helped immensely in the hotel room but more work needs to be done.
Wig Review
I love Epic Wigs. They're easy to style and thick enough that they don't need extra hair for what I need them to do.
