If i ever see you wearing this, it will be one of the few occassions where i lose my composition and cannot resist just going

I'm doing this cosplay for Midlands next year too! ^-^ I doubt mine will be as good as yours though, since it's only my second cosplay.

I'm completely obsessed with the manga. I really hope they haven't cancelled volume 3.

I too was considering it for midlands, but I've been attempting to finish this outfit (mainly the coffin) for the last year

Buyings (Posted 6th July 2011)

I went to a fabric shop and a certain supermarket where I managed to get a bunch of things needed for cosplays.

Nothing exciting for Kuro really, just some black satin to line the waistcoat with. I just hope it's going to look ok as I used different on the back. I may start over... Not sure.

Todays sewings (Posted 27th June 2011)

I sewed the trousers, and the waistcoat. I deffinatly need some more fabric. The waistcoat will be started again as it doesn't sit how I wanted.

Sewings... (Posted 26th June 2011)

I cut and pinned the trousers and wasitcoat. I need some more fabric to line the waistcoat then I will sew them. I think I'm going to use a shirt I already have instead of making it. Easier.

Cutting of wig.. (Posted 24th June 2011)

I attemped to cut the wig....... *hides*

unstyled wig... (Posted 15th February 2011)

i was looking through my journals on my progress and realised i hadn' posted a pic of my wig.. so there you go. although as Kuro is on HOLD AGAINNNNN (BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!) the wig will not be styled until i can wear her.

Meh...... (Posted 10th January 2011)

so the person who was making my coffin..... ran away.

i then got news i'd be in no fit phsyical state an un able to carry it anyway.
Therefore, i am no longer doing kuro for telford. I cried.

BUTTTTTTTTTTT look out for the other people who said they will be :D I very much look forward to seeing them!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D Can't Wait!

months later... (Posted 4th November 2010)

I fnally ordered a wig. I'm SO excited to have some time now to really get to work on her. Sen keeps moaning at me to get a move on hehe.
We are booked up for midlands so this will give me a time to aim for.

I've done a lot in preperation :D

wig (Posted 9th February 2010)

i'm pulling my hair out (actually it is falling out) over the wig..
As I compromised with the colour for Sen, using the darker blue in the manga for reference.
I think I need to match the wig colour with him, but any wigs I have found are either black or too bright..

So I found one that's blue with black ends. I can cut the ends off when styling and if the blue is way too bright I guess I can try to dye it.. the sharpie way, I really don't know...

04 February 2010 (Posted 4th February 2010)

Sen has been made.
4 hours work....

Royal Blue felt. White felt. Black felt. Fabric glue. Stuffing. 5 blue pipe cleaners. Sewing machine and some hand stitching.

03 February 2010 (Posted 3rd February 2010)

I finished the hat using a bit of hot glue and the sewing machine.

27 January 2010 (Posted 27th January 2010)

I have a tie :D

I asked my mum "Mum, do you have the tie template we made"
"The ties we made, In the blue trays"

So.. I found one of the black ties we had made a few years ago. Thanks Xena Productions ;) haha.

It has a silky inside, and I can't believe i forgot about them... We made two black ones and ten pink ones for a school play.

23 January 2010 (Posted 25th January 2010)

My brother in law found some Crepe bandages. Thanks KK.
(adding this for my own benefit)

21 January 2010. (Posted 22nd January 2010)

Well, the base parts of the hat ... I ran out of card so foam it is. It'll be ok once I get the hot glue/fabrics onto it.

21 January 2010. (Posted 21st January 2010)

They arrived.. I got some 'Harry Potter' (by Ruby's) glasses in the end.
I wasn't happy with the rubbish packaging it came in, and the fact my postman stuffed it through the letter box.. but after a quick bend they are lovely.

glasses... (Posted 3rd January 2010)

I&amp;#039;ve worked on a couple of things for the costume (Sen and the rounddd shoes ^ ^), but..
the glasses...

should I have black frames or silver frames?

I remembered I bought some without lenses for Elfriede (Moon Phase), i never did the cosplay in the end as I decided on Arte instead.
Anyway, they have no lenses and are gold. I will look around for some black with lenses I think, if not I will have to paint the ones I have...
