Serenity WIP by saraqael Serenity WIP by saraqael
...Because who knows when I'll get pictures of the finished thing, and I've been getting a lot of notes about posting more pictures of this dress (these are from back in January, I've only worn the costume once- sorry, I'm lazy!).

I've since replaced the hair doodlies and bracelet with fake moonstone to match the dress, fixed the ridiculous sleeves [link] and added some silly extras that she has in the manga (the cape and crown).

I've found some really fantabulous places to take photos, but I need to go on a mission to find a photographer I'm comfortable with. Juggling dealing with the costume and photo stuff all at once is just too much for my sanity and I'm not getting enough out of it to make it worthwhile. :/

Anyway, Happy Holidays everyone. :heart:

Hey, I was wondering about the sleeves...how in the world did you make them? It looks like a mold, but because the picture you provided is so small, it's really hard to tell if that's the case. (You can private message me about this).

Other than that, your cosplay is absolutely gorgeous!

This is so gorgeous! If you don't mind me asking, did you hand bead all that circle trim along the top of the bodice? If not, I would love to know how you did it, because the little bit I can see in the close up on the right is so pretty!
