Wish I had some better shots of this before it got too small. I made this to wear to an anime convention, and a lot of people took pics with me even though it wasn't a costume? Just an average dress O_o

You look quite pimpin in that dress, so I can see why they wanted pics with you Smiley

My hubby goes with me to anime conventions just to get pictures of cute girls *rolls eyes* (it's not too creepy yet, we're still in our twenties lol)

I go to conventions often as well and even if you aren't in cosplay there's usually someone who wants your picture. Usually I just tell them I'm not cosplaying, so I don't want my picture taken.

IS this just T-Shirt fabric? It looks quite nice.

Actually it was very thick canvas fabric. I also used it to make a heavy duty tote bag that I ended up giving to my life-long best friend before I made a hasty getaway to Tucson.
The back is corseted in the top half, and the side has pink panels that start at the waist to give some color contrast (I thrive on that kind of thing)

Thank you! And I'm not surprised. It was mostly guys that wanted pics. My hair wasn't quite as awkward when I went. I was growing out my mohawk that I had shaved off to make my mom happy when this picture was taken. I was just surprised at how many people wanted pics with a girl who wasn't cosplaying.

Thank you :3 I thought it was pretty plain but I think that's just because of my extreme tastes...

i'm pretty curious about those tights actually...  soft spot in my heart for checkerboard.
the dress is awesome, simple statements are sometimes the loudest.
