Description
Fuuka's battle commentary drove me insane when she first showed up in P3:FES, but it actually grew on me after a while. I wanted a quick P3 cosplay and her Gekkoukan High outfit looked like being the easiest to make, the others have pinstripe shirts or jumpers which would've been tricky to replicate. The great thing is that the box-pleated skirt can be used for any of the other characters when I have more time to spare!

I'm quite chuffed with this costume, actually. For something I put together in under a month it looks surprisingly good Oo;

Blisters (Posted 26th July 2009)

Is it a sad state of affairs when you don't trust your sewing machine to sew cotton web without the seam creeping and therefore have to do the whole thing manually? Two metres of cotton webbing later and I have an impressive blister forming on my middle finger from spinning around that wheel thing that makes the machine go. Owie D: And the seam still crept anyway. But it doesn't matter all too much because the aim of all of this was to run some cord down the middle to make some piping, so you won't see the cruddy seam, hah! I could've gone for satin but I figured that would be even worse, and I thought that'd be a little fancy for a school uniform. It's difficult to tell what sort of colour the piping's meant to be in the reference pictures - it looks grey to me but I went for white because it seemed the more logical colour. In retrospect maybe I should've stuck with grey because it looks a little bright now, but these things are clearer in hindsight, and short of dying it grey cotton web would've been difficult to do. Time is of the essence for this costume, with just two and a half weeks until the con!

Next I need to put in an invisible zip on the lefthand piping, then I can fit the front panel.
