Chevi! Loads of my cosplay friends all seem to know you so it might be time that I got to know you as well? Hahaha.
Suikoden is an undercosplayed series, I've yet to play the game but looking at this makes me want to :D Keep up the fab work.

oooo (Posted 10th January 2009)

got some poly cotton andddd an awesome pattern for the top : D

wig progress (Posted 5th January 2009)

well i had ago at styling it, though not happy with side plaits, i think i need to get more hair wefts to make them thicker and possibly slightly shorter. though may have problems getting hair wefts to match as its mix of grey and black hair strands
