Aqua: Blue waters and skys by Malindachan Aqua: Blue waters and skys by Malindachan
Gotta have pics around water of some sort. Lucky for us, the fountain on campus was filled up^.^ (it's empty during the winter. They had only recently filled it again).

So this shot actually shows the back of my costume and my arm armor. Much thanks to :iconcielduargent: for drawing the stencil that I used for the base :3 [link]

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

Very nice job on Aqua's outfit. I like the shoe spikes, but never understood the purpose of them.(I mean in general, not on you.)

I hope you dont mind me asking this, butttt... How tall are you? Ive always wondered how Tall all the KH characters are. Dunno why! But your height looks perfect for Aqua, and I really want to cosplay her. So I hope our height is similar so I can pull this off! XD

Can I say, WOW?! Where on EARTH did you get that cosplay? Seriously. If you bought it, tell me where and if you made it, how much do you want to make another one? (Yeah, I'm lazy and a terrible sewer, but I'm going to AMA with friends, and I have no costume to wear D:) Any advice at all would help extremely!

The foam armor on my arms is doing fine still, though the armor on the boots generally need touch-ups every time I wear them. They have a couple creases, but the worst of it is just when it's so hot that the hot glue softens a bit where it's attached to the boots and velcro areas. I just touch it up though with more glue when it needs it, though I'm considering trying something else like shoe glue.

u could do shoe glue...i just figure this out, for my aqua boots im useing is im taking a regular boots and then sewing fabric onto the boot and plus the fabric and the boots are good around water..so when im near water i can wear my boots and wont have to worry about it getting ruiend from the water

It was originally a long blue wig on ebay. I used the excess hair to make more hair wefts and then I styled it myself.

WOW! This Aqua's cosplay is amazing !! You've done a great job ;)
I would like to ask you something. I'm cosplaying Aqua as well, and I can't find any blue-metallic paint for the arm armor slats. Did you find a special paint or you used another method?
And I would also like to know how you fastened that "wing" that overhangs in the boots armor.
Thanks beforehand :)

I managed to find blue metallic paint at my local Hobby Lobby store

Those wing pieces were just hot-glued to the rest of the boot armor (they're made out of craft foam). I did the foam-sealing and painting after they were put together.

This is really a wonderful picture - it really highlights the work that went into the back of the outfit as well, which is something that gets left out far too often! It's a beautiful picture, too - the water is glimmering and the sky's a flattering shade that works out really well! Excellent picture! :3
