Costume Information

Cost : Haven't really kept track. Around £100.
Time Taken : A couple weeks

Tokiko's officially back in the mix! I'd like to finish her for Minnesota's Anime Detour 2010.

This was intended as my first cosplay, way back in 2007, but the convention plans and costume-making both fell through. But it has been revived! Still got the (recently updated) wig, the socks, and shoes.

So far, the skirt needs just a zipper (oh God, I thought I'd never be done ironing pleats!), and the shirt is maybe halfway through. I expect it will be fun to figure out the hidden pleats in the body of the shirt. If I get really ambitious, I would like to cobble together her Valkyrie Skirt, at least in Wait Mode (seems a little more practical than Full Mode). With a wide elastic band and some craft foam, I think it can be done.

I also had color contacts for this character at one time (you can see them a little in the icon photo), but they've long since expired, and I wasn't very good at getting them in anyways. Did look cool, though.

Update 07/18 '09- Costume finished, and pictures uploaded! Now, to make her weapon.
