Oh blog how I have neglected you! I need to get back to posting regularily. So expect some pics of my updated keyblade and my cynthia costume sometime soon. But for now …
Panty & Stocking Guide
Simple costumes but still a bit of a challenge, particularily the wigs if you don’t want to find them pre-styled. The outfits are pretty good for smaller cons, meetups or more casual cosplay because they are fairly regular clothes.

Here are some shoes that may work:
Assuming you already have a pair of shoes that work, or you have gone thrifting and found a great pair, but they are not the right color here are some shoe color changing tutorials:
