Description
This was my first Cosplay so I wanted something easy to do but looked pretty good. Seeing as my friend was already going as Misa-chan and we wanted to go as a pair I decided that L would be the easiest and most obvious choice! I already had the jeans, which I borrowed off my mum so they would be baggy and big for me - they did keep trying to fall down though which was a little embarrassing!

The hardest part was surprisingly, trying to find a plain white shirt that was baggy enough for the outfit! (Also back then I didn't know how to make myself flat, so if it was going to be baggy it needed to be baggy enough to make it look like I had at least less of a chest than I did!). I think we eventually managed to find a bloke's shirt in H&M in London somewhere the day before the Con. Thank goodness I did because it looked so much better than the one I was going to wear!

My friend Ellie who went as Misa-Misa already had a black wig and basically turned it into a dead cat for me (Yay! Dead Cat Wig!). Other than that it was a really easy outfit, also I got to take my shoes off in the convention centre - the people working there thought I was mad while other Con-goers were saying I was 'hardcore' - it was so much fun! I recommend taking your shoes off next time you cosplay!
