DescriptionThis was my first cosplay ever, needless to say I was super duper nervous. Haha.
I can't sew for the life of me, so I asked my grandma to make the dress for me. But, she got lazy and took it to a friend who is a tailor. I got lucky cause the dress was made by a professional, and it looks super sexy to me. I take no credit. She also made the hair piece and the arm band. I had to improvise with the balls on the hair piece. I didn't know what to use for them, so I just put together a whole bunch of pompoms. Maybe in the future, I'll find something better and fix it. Also I need to find different beads or whatever for the straps. I don't know what to use for the straps, if anyone has any ideas please let me know. XD
The stockings I bought online on Amazon. The shoes were my grandmas and I just taped the pompoms on. After a while they hurt to walk in, so I took them off and walked around the con without them and whipped them back on when someone asked for a picture. I'll probably look for new shoes.
Wig was off of ebay and my friend trimmed the front ends a bit. I had no wig cap and it was a challenge trying to put on the wig. I apologize if the wig looked a bit crappy or if hair was sticking out LOL. I was messing around with it too much trying to fix the bangs...it didn't really work that well.
All in all, it was a cool experience. I'll probably cosplay this again next year if I go to AX again.
My friends and I are planning the Listen version for next year too. Hopefully it'll happen!
