Pride in Purple by TakaraYuuki Pride in Purple by TakaraYuuki
All, I don't really know where to start I suppose. It's perhaps a bombshell, so I'll be brief and subtle.

I meant for this to go up during Ace Awareness Week but things happened and I'm a little late. To cut a long story short, Cye is as ace as a pack of cards. I bet you didn't know! .....I'll leave that there...

I'm rather fond of her pride dress, I want one, but I doubt any fabric store would stock that striped fabric :( also, if you look very closely, she is wearing pretty much all the romantic ace symbols, (although apologies for lack of scanner blurriness). That is a black ring under her glove.

There are a few things wrong with this (one HUGE critical error, if you can spot it) but I would never have finished it if I'd tried to re ink her.

Anyway methinks it speaks for itself, so I'm going to leave it here

Love and tea 
Madam T

Nice work with all the purples and the design of her gown, very detailed, especially the ruffles along the bottom and the really long bustle - I think I spotted the error...with the flag attached to the pole...but I have done that too lol! *hopes that was the error*

Thank you! I had a lot of fun designing this one (I do love ruffles and bustles, bet you can tell! XD) I just wish I had the means to make it xD 
Yep, its the flagpole with the laws of physics defying flag xD ah well it looks pretty, I didn't want to risk re-doing it! I did also miss a colour on the bustle, but you'd probably have to be looking really hard and know the flag well to spot that.

I'm sure there's a tutorial somewhere on how to make bustles, but you'd probably need a lot of material
Nevermind, it could be a hologram flag, and I have done the same thing before so I'm not judging lol

I can make bustles, its just finding the fabric in the right colour way. Oh well, I have plenty costumes to make anyway I suppose! XD and yeah....it involves a lot of fabric...

Haha yeah, I guess it was waiting to happen with all those stripes! Nobody will notice......

Yeah material is difficult to find in nice shades and such.

Lol I'm sure they won't, you should have kept it secret :)

Finally worked up the courage! XD
Thanks! I'm glad it worked, I had a lot of fun designing it! I wish I could make it and wear it, but I don't know a single place that would stock striped fabric in the ace flag colours :( ah well, at least Cye seems to be enjoying herself xD she's got pride ;)

You're so welcome! :heart: I'm glad c: Yeah, I wouldn't imagine they would do that... at least not from what I understand. That's a shame :c Ah well, at least Cybelle can enjoy herself <3

Hehe yay! 
Hmm, I have thought about being crafty and buying a lot of white fabric and stitching ribbon stripes to it or painting it, but it would take forever. Maybe when I have less costumes to finish xD and she is so enjoying herself, although I feel a little sorry for her, as I don't think people knew about asexuality in her time..... (Creative licence wins here)

Ahh, you really should <3 I'm sure it'll be awesome c: Haha, it might take a while, but I'm certain it'll wield some promising results <3

Ahhh, I don't think people in the Netheron universe know about Estelle's asexuality either. They probably just think she likes woman or something, hahaha Marcilyn and Otto both are conscious of her viewpoints though, and agree with her (thankfully :XD: Otherwise the poor girl would be all alone in the never ending battle between the world and her~ )
