This costume was the first ever costume I wanted to make when I learned what cosplay was. I eventually inquired with a costume maker but couldn’t afford their quoted price, so I set out to make it myself. It proved to be too difficult, so my first costume ended up being Aeris, which I enlisted the help of my mother’s sewing friend. I’ve come a long way as a seamstress since those days, and I wanted to revisit this costume. It’s been a goal of mine for a long time and sometimes it amazes me that I actually got around to making it and then shooting it! The dress is white denim, dyed yellow, the boots are just costco sheepskin boots with covers on them and though I didn’t get to show off my dragon radar, I did have one that I made. (It was pretty lame haha).
