Personal Thoughts:
This costume was a fun challenge and I got to use a bunch of new textiles for the first time. However, people seem to remember Silica's pet dragon, Pina, more than the tamer herself when she is mentioned in conversation.

Styling Notes
The wig came with pigtails that were too high. I took them out and redid them. Bangs were trimmed. I thinned out the pigtails with thinning shears and fluffed them up by back-combing and using hairspray.
