|Ok i like Nanao she makes me smile plus i have her hair and i wear glasses so i don't have to keep taking them off for pictures or mess around with a wig :)|
I Have worn this cosplay several times at MCM London as it's comfortable and I like the character XD
I've pretty much bought/borrowed most of the things for this cosplay out of necessity for having her done. I did make the book and long white obi the other things were either bought by myself on the cheap or items were lent to my by my good friends xxx
I'm marking her as complete as I don't think I'll be cosplaying her much anymore except for maybe casual occasions with friends - like my friend's birthday meal where she was in a school uniform!!!
I still love cosplaying her though but after Oct 2010's expo I'll have to re-make the book as it finally died after the millionth time of being dropped/accidentally kicked/shoved in bags and wardrobes etc.....thank you book....you served me well <3
