Skirts aren't really as simple as you might think. Because you have to make them big enough to fit over your bum.
Don't feel like a failiure,, it happens. You just need to practive a litte more. :3

i actually made mine like a wrap round rather than an actual skirt if that helps at all?? it only took a couple of hours as well ^_^
but don't feel bad! i mean mine doesn't look that great being bigger an all >_> but as long as you do your best (which you clearly have) and you have a good time at the end of it it shouldn't matter in my opinion ^_^ at least you can say you tried right? im sure it'll look awesome ^_^

@Silver: one more thing, looking at the weather for Saturday its not looking too good T_T could you suggest an area either indoors or under cover somewhere in case it does rain?? *prays that it doesn't* just so people know where to go. Obviously i mean an actual downpour lol not just a little cloud etc.

Yeah that's how I did mine but Silver's right you need room for your bum so it gaped at the top and then when pulled the fabric in at the top and put a zip in while attempting to get it on the zip broke >_< The fabric I brought for the new skirt was slightly too dark for my liking also (brought online so couldn't tell well).
So yeah currently attempting to bring in the waist of my old one and do it up at the back via buttons rather than a zip. I mean you never see the back of her skirt thanks to the duster anyway.

Hi guys.

I'm home and going to have a nap soon as travelling has really taken it out of me.
I'll get started on the photos as soon as possible. I have A LOT to get through.

Thanks to everyone for turning up. I'm sorry if I seemed a little frazzled or snappy on Saturday or Sunday. I get like that when I'm putting pressure on myself!

I must of missed the photo shoot as when I got there all I saw was the world record attempt taking place. Hope the photos are great anyway.

Liz-Chan, gutted that I missed your Genesis. I hope we can catch each other again soon.

It really sucks that we missed each other. I had myself and my Lulu on Seph-watch for you, and I think I just caught a glimpse of you as you went up the steps (we were randomly sitting outside at the time) but you were gone before we could go after you. Shame, as you make such an awesome Sephiroth.

But if you're going to May I'll be there again as Genesis (with his rapier and possible OWA version if I can figure out how on earth to do it). Even if you're not doing Seph then will have to get pics.

To everyone: It was really amazing meeting all you guys over the weekend - you really made my first expo incredible and the best weekend of my life. All of you are awesome people (and so nice to talk to) and special thanks to Silver for organising everyone and the shoots. I can't wait to see you all again in May - just look out for the random Genesis with attached Lulu once again ^--^.

Okay! I'm going to start work on the photos this week - probably tomorrow after work.
I have A LOT of FF photos to go through. Over 100 from Saturday and over 300 from Sunday. So it may take some time. I will post when I have each day up though. So bare with me. :3

I couldn't find the photoshoot on Saturday :(
I went outside at half 12 but because the record attempt was on, it was so crowded, and I couldn't figure out where to go.
Saw you's all doing the photoshoot on the Sunday, ya's all looked great!
