Aqua: Amongst the Blossoms by Malindachan Aqua: Amongst the Blossoms by Malindachan
So I like this shot because you can see DEM EYELASHES! For this cosplay I got some fake eyelashes since Kingdom hearts characters have some of the thickest lashes you've ever seen. I need to get some new ones now though, because I accidentally pulled them apart when I was scraping the glue off XDD

Also, before anybody points them out and complains, those white strips on my legs are elastic. They're there to keep my socks from falling down (when I'm standing, you rarely see them since they're covered by my skirt).

For detailed information about how I constructed this costume, look at the wall of text in my artists' comments box here:

You look so beautiful here. How do you find patterns for all of these? I'm really excited because Easter weekend is Sakura-Con in Washington and I'm going as Yubel Jaden! i got my blue contact and my orange one was shipped two days ago. And then we have a genderbender so i took the colors from Haou and made a Victorian style dress

Most of it was drafted myself. The only parts I used patters for were the arm armor pieces (which I found here on DA), the leggings/shorts, and the corset (and all these patterns were modified)

I wouldn't say that. I'm not exactly model-material myself ^^ (I'd say I'm pretty average)
Knowing even just the basics with makeup can go a long way, but sometimes the trick is in how you present yourself, or how a photographer captures a moment.

you can also wear those transparent skincolored stockings, then the socks will slip down less easier and you don't have the extra elastic

I chose not to use those because I wanted a more opaque material that matched my shorts >__<

I'm planning on cosplaying Aqua this year, and thought it would be easy. But after reading how much effort you put into it, you've inspired me to make sure it's perfect. So thank you, and you make a fantastic Aqua! :D
