Kamui's PDF books. When I started the project, it was actually really fun and easy to do. I manged to complete a lot in just a matter of days. Here's what the outfit looked like before I primed and painted it.
I never wanted to walk down the aisle simply in a white dress like some princess waiting to be saved. I wanted to be a powerful Elven warrior who would walk alongside my most trusted ally, my future husband. Since he was wearing armour, why couldn't I? At the time, I wasn't sure if I was going to have a wedding dress. When I went around looking for one, I couldn't believe how ridiculously expensive they were and there's people out there willing to spend that much. So I decided to take the risky route and ordered mine online through JJsHouse and hoped for the best. Thankfully all went well and just for under $500 (after customs), I got the dress altered to fit my exact size, the headpiece, the garter plus shipping. It was perfect.
The wedding theme colours were red and blue and it was based on the idea of health and mana. James' side represented the red/gold side while my side represented the blue/silver side. It's because of this idea we thought health and mana potions would be awesome as party favours. It was really cheap to put together. All the components apart from the symbols all came from the Dollar store such as the bottles, tags, ribbons, red glitter glue and men's blue shampoo. No worries, I warned people not to actually drink the contents.
