Final Fantasy VIII
DescriptionRight, lets make this quick. This costume wasn't difficult to make really, it was more of a learning process. The duster was most challenging, but I found a suitable pattern to alter, so it wasn't that hard. ^_^ I bought the black top and shorts (added the zips). And I made the skirt with the most perfect fabric I found. *_* (Random fact but I had to buy two sets of all the buttons for the costume because I somehow managed to lose them all. ^^;;) On that note, my duster fabric IS ribknit, but for some reason it doesn't really show up on pictures :s The wings on the back of the duster were SO last minute, and actually the last thing I did before the con. Couldn't find any white fabric paint so I bought this 'pearly white' which actually turned out to be, literally, shiny and was sooo pretty. *_* Pity none of the photos caught my back!
This costume was made for a FF8 group my friends were doing and it was a fun group! (Especcially as our masquerade walk on included Yuri AND Yaoi...oh yeah, we're generous people. :P) But weirdly...I don't think this costume really suits me that well. O.O Maybe it's the wig - but I look SO different on every photo I have of it. Strange... On the upside - the duster was fuuun in the wind! ^_^
