Description
At first, I just wanted an outfit so i could look like Amu Hinamori, because I love her style so much, especially the legwarmers, and then i read about cosplaying, and how there was a con in Telford, where my friend lives so i could go with her to it. So i quite quickly developed an interest in cosplay! ^^

I'm not a Shugo Chara fan, but I couldn't help but comment anyway XD

I admire greatly the lengths you're going to with the small accessories for this costume. I like the eggs, and the bag particularly looks amazing!

Well done =D

Aww, thank you everyone for your kind comments! ^_^
Next thing to do is get the bag completely finished, and then buy the shoes or humpty lock. Do you think black converse'll be ok? Or are my converse on one of the pictures ok to use? I need new shoes anyway, those converse are coming apart a lil now D: lol.

You're wearing this to Thought Bubble, I only just noticed!
=D Yay, Thought Bubble!

The complete costume looks really great.
Wigs are a pain for everyone, I am led to believe, so you're not alone in your battle!
I think black converse (or some cheap black pumps to the same effect...Primark is your friend!) would work well.

As far as contact lenses go, my personal oppinion is not to bother. (but that's mainly cos I'm left out of the whole contact lense buisness by being physicaly unable to wear them! No fun!)
No one is going to judge your costume on your eye colour, and they don't always show up on pictures so...there's nothing to say you NEED them, but if you'd like to try them out, nothing stopping you!
Hope that helps =D

(I really like this costume, for some reason I can't place...maybe it just suits you XD Keep up the good work, you're doing a great job!)

I remember seeing you at Thought Bubble, damn I wanted to see that cute little bag up close, but I didn't get too :(

Anyway, loved the bag from what could see and the pictures here. Oh and those eggs are great! It's always good to see people making their character's little probs too, such a fab costume xxx
