Inspiration: My original plan was to cosplay as Namine in her white dress, but after seeing a piece of artwork by Rubyd on deviantart, I became inspired to make a white Organization XIII jacket.
Favorite Aspect: I love long jackets, and this one I'm making is just kickass. It's almost like a dress, but it's something I can wear outside of conventions and not get strange stares.
Least Favorite Aspect: Depending on what reference image I'm looking at, certain small aspects change, mainly the number of gores in the front.
Easiest Task: The hood is the only thing that really stays the same in every shot I've seen, so I drafted that and made a mock-up no problem.
Hardest Task: Well sleeves are always a bitch to sew in. And I think putting in the zipper might be a bit of a toughie.
