Those Chosen by the Planet by GS-Force Those Chosen by the Planet by GS-Force
Costume: Aerith Gainsborough - Final Fantasy VII
100% Handmade

This all started when :iconyokococo: suggested I do Aerith to her Tifa. So lo and behold come ACen I had her up and running. I decided to go with the Original version of Aerith instead of Advent Children just because the game meant a lot more to me. And plus it's way more festive. ;)

I made everything: the dress (which has sleeve and placket facing) and jacket (which is top-stitched to make it look like denim) were drafted from pattern blocks, the silver and gold bands were made out of craft foam and painted. Her necklace was simply a ribbon, and her hair bow was made with fusible interfacing so it would stay stiff and give it shape. Her hair was tough, but it turns out if you use enough hairspray to choke yourself with, it will stay put. XD The bangs are my hair, and since my hair isn't quite long enough (although it is quite getting there) I had to buy a drawstring hair extension. And you can't see my shoes, but those were bought at Salvation Army with no alterations.

I really do love Aerith, and I was so happy to do this costume.

To avoid listing the greatness of everything/rambling on, my favorite part is the use of your real hair!! (aside from the extension, of course!)

Was I the only one disappointed with her english voice after Mandy Moore stopped voicing her from KH1? lol Good job, gawd damn you're the spittin image of her! Awesome job lol!

No you were not. I thought Moore did such a good job, and then they stopped using her. The madness! But glad you like it! :D

It's a little disappointing because she did a good job as Rapunzel in Tangled. Its almost like Disney wants to rub it in our faces that Moore can actually voice act .-.;. Oh well... Nailed this cosplay! Lookin forward to the next one!

I've heard about the wonders of hairspray from my friend who's made a couple Sailor Moon wigs. Although I guess sometimes it just takes in too much and you actually have to stop working on it for a bit.

So you got a pimpin' staff to go with it?

Oh yes, I made myself a staff. :D It's just not Aerith without it!

What did you make the bracelets out of, BTW? I can't tell if they're solid or something flexible from the picture.
