RAVE!Kairi is a variation of Kairi I want to do with my group (who so far only consists of one other KH character). I’ve just started planing her out but I have a few good ideas so far I think! I’ll just list them out for now, the elements I want anyway and see where I can go!

Zippers: three of them, just like on her regular KH2 outfit. I love her pink dress, so that is staying.
Belt with Bag: Staying. Might make a different bag or something or I’ll just use the same one. It is AMAZING to have.
Bright colors: Pinks I think will be the main color again since she is pink. I might bring in some of her purple or blue from her uniform.
Skirt: Pleated unless I can’t find a better spot for her zippers. I hope her shirt will work for the zippers.
Patch?? Maybe some patches… one of a paopu fruit would be cute.

Really, that is all I have so far. Bright, colorful and glowy xD



So, I forgot to keep this updated, but Kairi from KH2 is finished! She was a great success. I’m super pleased with how she turned out.

There are somethings that do need work, such as the shoes. The black paint started coming off during the con, so I’ll need to repaint them. Also, the lack of hair styling skillz didn’t help my case any when it came to trying to shove my hair up in a wig. I knew what I needed to do, just I needed help doing it since I can’t pin my own hair up. O_o; But minor details! I’ll get better with the wig!

I was complete even with a Shadow Plushie! He was adorable. He was my Sora. I even made him a paopu fruit to carry around! I ended up not having the keyblade but at this time I’m okay with that. I love my shadow. Maybe for next years KumoriCon I’ll have it. I don’t know. But I do know I wont be setting aside my Sora! He’s just too cute!

Well, here is a picture of Sora, Paopu and I! Not a full shot as I don’t have any I want to use yet, but soon I will!

Kairi and Sora!

Papou Fruit and Shoes

I’ve made progress on my costum props! Here is¬† picture of the keycharm and my shoes! I’m super happy with how the charm turned out. A little odd looking in a few spots but otherwise I’m excited!

Kairi Cosplay

Kairi from Kingdom Hearts II is my most recent cosplay adventure! She will be worn at Kumori Con 2009.

The outfit I’m doing this year is her in game pink dress with her keyblade as well!

At this point, the dress is like… 99% done. lol Just need to add the hook and eyelet onto the back. Other than that though I need to finish up my portion of the keyblade (doing the keycharm,¬†flowers, leaves and shell), lace the shoes, work on the belts and make the bag.

I’ll post pictures of it soon!
