Costume completed - Nov. 29, 2004
Wig - This is the Godiva wig in color 4.
Accessories - The earrings were made using a clear cord and items found at Hobby Lobby. They were painted silver with acrylic paint.
Suspenders/Belt - These wre both from a thrift store. I bought two buckles, 3 pairs of clip on things, a bit of pvc leather, 3 small gems, and a sort of silver bias-tape like thing to add to the suspenders. I had to alter the belt to get the shape right. The clip-ons from the suspenders clipped on both the skirt and the belt.
Armwarmers - These were made from black stretchy material.
Elbow armor - I made this using craft foam, wooden studs that I painted silver and material that I painted the same barnyard red acrylic to attach to arm.
Gloves - I found these at a thrift store, altered them, and painted in barnyard red acrylic paint. I added two green buttons to the right glove. I used silver pvc on the wrist part of the glove. The back of that same material was white, so I used that for the left glove. For my 3rd version, I used PVC leather for the gloves.
Top - The top was altered from a shirt bought from a thrift store.
Skirt - Made by hand.
Socks - Black and were the same I used for Rinoa.
Shoes - From thrift store. I used bits of craft foam to make the shape of the shoe. This was difficult since I used 2mm craft foam and I had to be careful not to tear it when threading the black lace for the shoe. The armor part of the shoe was made the same from the elbow armor.
Total spent - $67.64
