This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

5th August 2010: Progress report Bangles - the bangles have had their 1st coat of paper mache and are drying, i think 3 coats and 2 coats of bronze paint and they will be done.

Dress - the dress was taken apart, cut up the middle and shortened to the middle of my calf and hemed,Then button holes were made and the buttons were attached along with popper studs in between each button to stop the fabric from popping apart when i move.

Jacket - the jacket was taken apart and the padding removed along with the old fabric cuffs and re-sized to fit me after i lost alot of weight and was re-lined and awaiting new armoured cuffs which are being made the same way as the bangles

30th July 2010: The remake On the 15th of August will be my last sotland cosplay meet so i thought i would spruce Aerith Gainsburgh up ahain as she was my 1st cosplay and she needs a good photoshoot, so i re styled her wig and will be re doing her bangles and getting new boots for her as the old one's are falling to bits.

Hi there! I hope this comment doesn't offend you I honestly don't mean it in any bad way. But as a "plus size girl" myself I've always wanted to cosplay Aeris but felt insecure due to my size. However, looking at how lovely you look in the outfit it assures me that any girl no matter the size can look and feel good :) I wouldn't consider you large in any circumstance but I just had to comment and say how fantabulous I think you look! And am pleased to see that you look far better than some "stick insect" girls I've seen cosplay her :) I hope I havent upset you in any way >.< I apologise if I have T_T

@ BabemRose ~ if you look through all my finished cosplays you will see im not a size zero and dont think i would like to be lolz i think all women should have curves! and to be honest men do like curve's in women so its all good for us =]

i love to cosplay as it makes me feel good about creating something out of nothing and that size doest play any part of my costume decisions!

and i can see why you would be insecure as i have had Negative comments before about my Lightning cosplay on Deviant art about me being way to fat to wear that costume and it did hurt but now i dont let things bother me as i have lost weight since then and the cosplay looks alot better on me now,

so go with what you think you look good in and ignore what others say its your hobby enjoy it xx

No problem :D You deserve praise! I was once called "chunky" >.< And I havent been lucky enough to lose weight recently but I think everyone should be comfortable in their own skin....even if they're wearing other people's clothes ;) haha! Good luck with all your future cosplays! :D x

You make an awesome Aeris Sasashie!

Yes, I use the 's' way of spelling it as I personally find the 'th' makes it sound like one has a lisp.
