|Time Taken :||5 hours|
|A rare sighting of me as a blonde! Lap it up, you're not likely to see it again.|
The Bride is in the tradition of "tough chick" character types that I've always liked cosplaying. Not to mention it was simple, comfortable, recognisable and cheap to make - four things that rarely come together in a costume for me.
Bought a tracksuit, dyed it yellow, sewed the ribbon stripes on, painted a pair of trainers and glued on black stripes (I can't afford real Asics!), and cut and styled the wig. A little watered down red fabric paint splattered on with an old toothbrush. Ta-dah~~ finito.
My only regret - that I never got a picture of this costume with the replica sword, which I do own. I can't have it at a con, being a live blade and all, and I no longer fit the costume at all so a photoshoot is out of the question.
