"That's so sweet..."  
Heyyy, remember this crazy costume I've been babbling about for the past few months? Guess what I haaaaaave?


I got these on Tuesday, which distracted me from not being able to play Duodecim until my PSP charged and by the way, that game is SO MUCH FUNNNN. I like playing as Vaan. He just whacks people around. MY HERO.

Anyway, want to see some Aqua pictures? Of course you do. ;D

A few technical things about this costume I feel like babbling about: Everything that was sewn - the sleeves, the ribbon, the side stuff, the hem of the shorts, whatever else - was HAND SEWN. ;lskdjfzsf This is partially because sewing machines freak me out, but also because my stepmom still hasn't taken the one she got for Christmas out of the box. >>

I stabbed myself in the thumb more times than I care to remember. Ouch. |D

The Wayfinders in action!

Official post...of officialness. ;D
I can't get the white thingy around my waist to sit properly. I swear it's accurate, but...bah. >>

I love Magnega. Get those purple pod Unversed in line. GIMMIE ICE CREAM~

Also, that Keyblade. Ahahaaaaaaaa. I actually didn't start working on it until about a week and a half ago. Yeah. .___. There's so much crap in it and boy oh boy, my arm is going to fall off on Saturday. |D

Trying out that official kneeling down pose aaand failing miserably. |D

Try not to be too jealous of the badassery. ;)
Also, my sleeves have pipe cleaners sewn in them to make them all goofy-looking, which is why it looks wonky in that picture. |D

Bob is clearly the most EVIL UNVERSED EVER.
And my Keyblade was in the backyard which is why I don't have it here. ^^;

Obligatory tree-hugger pose. ;D
I think the armor is my favorite part of the whole costume, seriously. I spent so much time making and remaking it, which is why I think I kind of fizzled out on everything else. ><

"Terra...what's to become of us?"
Fun Fact: The back of that Wayfinder (all of them, actually) are just silver. I turned it around for a more accurate picture. xD

And I totally redid the ribbon thing. I can't figure out why it fit fine when I first made it, but it was sooo loose and ill-fitting when I tried on the whole costume. o_O Oh well. It works now. /o/

Favorite! al;skdjf
The lighting was a complete accident, but I love the effect. Or maybe it wasn't an accident and my sister is just an awesome photographer. ;D

I shall probably have mooore after this weekend, since Megacon is on Saturday and all. And of course there will be an overload of cosplay pictures. Huzzah. ;D I've also made forty bucks in the past week babysitting, so maybe I'll find myself a spiffy play arts. WE SHALL SEE.

The only disappointing thing is that apparently a lot of people on Coscom that are cosplaying KH characters are going on Friday instead of Saturday. >> Oh, well. Maybe I'll be the only Aqua and I'll pwn everyone with my...Aqua-ness?

Also, is it bad that I'm already gathering stuff for the next costume I want to do? |D Which is a seeecret since I'm pretty sure nobody else has ever done it before and it will be CRAZY but hnnngh.

TIME FOR SOME GAMING and then more babysitting. >>

Does anybody else have Duodecim yet? And how do you looove it? |D I need to figure out the Quest thing and make some epic ones. Aw yeeeah.

The pics are so cool! Your cosplay looks awesome, I can't believe you hand sewed everything, that's craziness! I love your keyblade! :O Have fun on Saturday!

Thank you! ♥ Sewing machines freak me out, so I had no choice. ^^; It's better than hot gluing it, ha! xD

Yay Aqua! You look awesome as her~ =D Haha, she's totally on my grand list of cosplay-that-would-be-cool-but-will-never-happen-unless-I-stop-being-broke.

Ouch, hand-sewing. x___X My thumb hurts just thinking about it all. D: *casts cure on your thumb*

Also, DAT KEYBLADE. Looks tasty, nomnomnom. ♥

DUODECIM, GAHHHHH. *sits in the corner and waits for the 29th*
RS - The Daymaker!: KH indeedrainbowserenity on March 25th, 2011 04:35 am (UTC)

Awww, thank yoooou. ♥ I was only able to do this since I got the wig and a gift card for Christmas. Plus, I hoard craft foam like the wind, ahaha. |D But if you don't count the wig, it actually wasn't too expensive. Maybe forty, fifty dollars? vOv


All riiight. I wouldn't recommend eating it though, or you might get a mouthful of glue. ;D

Revyallodole on March 24th, 2011 09:54 pm (UTC)
Awesome! I tip my hat off to you for sewing all of that by hand. I hate hand-sewing. >__>
RS - The Daymaker!: FFXIII chickennnrainbowserenity on March 25th, 2011 04:31 am (UTC)
Thank you! I did most of the sewing while sitting in front of the computer watching old episodes of Daria. It made it go by a lot faster. xD
Revyallodole on March 25th, 2011 08:55 am (UTC)
I do that too when I have to hand sew something. Watching something at the same time + hand sewing = multitasking like a boss~

Ahhhh you look so awesome! :D I think it's way better when no one's cosplaying the same as you... though, at least you're going somewhere that people will know the character anyway. Our Halloween costumes last year were a big mystery at the fetish club! And I though there would be more geeks there. We're so uncool. XD
RS - The Daymaker!: FFVII zack's got movesrainbowserenity on March 25th, 2011 04:31 am (UTC)
Thank yooou. ♥ And my thoughts exactly, ahaha. I was the only Cosmos at Megacon last year, but hardly anyone knew who I was. >> Oh, well.

Hey, it's cool to be a geek! xD At least you stood out!
Samglittersavvy on March 25th, 2011 02:41 pm (UTC)
Well we don't really have lots of cons here (I live in the very centre of England) so I have to settle for spiking my hair and pretending to be a nondescript anime character every day. ^_^

We were at Torture Garden in London and everyone else was wearing latex. We were dressed as Dante and Lady from Devil May Cry 3, so there was flesh on show, but not much. Though at the end of the night, some dude came up and recognised the costumes and said they were awesome. Turns out he worked for Ninja Theory, who are doing the godawful Devil May Cry reboot... so we had to tell him that we did not approve. XD

Thank you bb~ ♥

Ahahaha uhhhh. Wood, styrofoam balls, memory foam, craft foam, glue, gorilla glue, some duct tape, and more paint than I care to think about. 8D It's not really all that heavy, but lugging it around while I'll be on my feet for about six hours straight is gonna stink. Oh well. xD

I AMMMMM~ You should tooootally get it. Yuna's so much fun to play as. 8D

Ninja it from him and play it more! >D

I kind of wanted to make one of the ice cream recipes as another prop, but I think three of them would be pushing it. xD
