Costume Information

I originally planned this for the 2009 Grand Cosplay Ball, to accompany Luke's Rimururu, but it didn't come together in time for that event unfortunately. At the time of writing it still needs a few small details - the trim on the robe and belt for example, and the gloves - but I got it basically finished in time for Minamicon, so yay! Still no Mamahaha though, oh well ^_^

The trousers were made using Simplicity 3626, with small modifications. The robe was made from Simplicity 2940, with modifications. The wig is from Yankenshop on eBay.

Since I still only have a mini sewing machine, the elasticated ankles on the trousers were done by hand and my fingers were in agony by the time they were finished! I love the way they hang though, nice and puffy like Nakoruru's are supposed to be.
