Lenalee was one of the first characters I ever wanted to cosplay so I was super happy to finally be able to cosplay her!

There will definitely be more of Lenalee from me at some stage. I want to work through all/most of her outfits etc. There's a few other D.GM characters I'd like to do as well but for now I'll be doing Lenalee ^__^

Sorry for the horrible location for the photo... I forgot to get pictures during the day at the con so this was in our hotel room.

Photography: :iconnewti:
Lenalee Lee: :iconradclawedraid:

Entire costume made by me. Shoes painted by me, Newton tried to fix them. The paint on them is horrible and will need to be sanded off and redone for next time LOL.

Oh gosh, you look just like her! Great job :D And also, epic shoes xD I have a hard time finding the right shade of red pfff~
Oh wow thankyou! I hope to do many more of her outfits next year, and I'll have my Lavi too.

Ah thanks, actually the shoes are ruined XD I had to buy black ones, and they were spray painted. Then I ran out and used another can of spray paint, which was a different brand and shade.... so I went over each shoe entirely again... and the paints reacted ;3; so it was all bubbled and stuff. I put them in plastic bags once I thought they had dried so I could transport them but.. yeahhhh the paint hadn't fully dried so it's all bumpy and ruined XDDD

But no one really looks that closely at feet at cons so I didn't care XD LOL Hopefully I can fix them for next time though.

And thank you so much for the fave and watch!! :D

You're very very welcome!!~

Oh goodness! All that work o.o but you are right about people not looking at feel that much xD In pictures they look perfect if that makes you feel better!~

Again~ You're so very welcome :333
Haha if I hadn't stuffed one shoe up and ran out of paint they'd have been perfect and pretty XD buutttt yeah, I just shouldn't be allowed near paint and stuff LOL.

Aw thanks, I'm glad it's not noticeable LOL ^__^

Your cosplay turned out great! Awesome job!

When painting shoes, use some PVA glue as well, it sometimes stops it chipping and breaking off. If all fails, just grab yourself a pair of red pumps to stop going through all the painting again. ^-^;
Thanks so much!! :iconhappyskipplz:

Ohhh I'd never have thought to use PVA glue with it. Usually when I paint shoes they're okay, but I sort of ran out of time ^_^" and used two different paints cos I stuffed the first coat up and they reacted (therefore cracking etc). We put another coat on really early in the morning on Friday and left for Sydney at about 11am but they were only touch dry, we put them in plastic bags and went on our way. They were so completely ruined when we got there XDDDDD Soooo bad. Next time I won't leave it so late D8;

The problem is where I live is in the middle of nowhere almost, so the stuff at local stores in limited compared to stuff I could find if I lived in the middle of Sydney. And sometimes I forget about things like that and then it's too late to order them online XD I was really lucky with these ones though to get such a small heel on them, most of them in stores are either flats or huge stilettos XD

But thanks so much for the tip! I will keep it in mind :3
