Description
I love Macross Frontier, and I especially love Klan Klein; she's just like me in the sense that's she's small, looks barely legal and has a very boobish burden :P

Add in the fact that my boyfriend treats me the same way Micheal treats poor Klan (i present to you our typical couple fight - i try and hit him and he holds me at arms length by the forehead ¬____¬)

Sadly though, time/money/skill didn't allow me to make this myself as i had originally planned.
It's been a long while since i picked up a needle and thread to make anything other than a tail/ears/paws and I really could afford to experiment and learn from mistakes - income just doesn't allow it right now :(

So i commissioned the lovely Aberdeen cosplay company, The Rubber Pineapple, to make it for me :)
They did an excellent job and it matches my reference pictures i sent perfectly, even the measurements were exact! And they only charged me £35; compared to what some commissioners quoted me on coscom (*ahem* £150), that's a bargain!

The wig was bought on ebay and although i was a bit dubious about it's quality since it only cost £30, i was pleasently surprised at just how good it is :)
Albeit heavy............when i put one ponytail on at a time, my head tilts under the weight XD

I have the socks, just need to sew bows onto them as well as the shoes.
All i need now is to get a lab coat which i can pick up in the university shop :)

You mean it's that "wonderfully awesome" Faye cosplayer. ;D
haha.
What day are you wearing this?
So I know what cosplay of mine you'll be getting photos with. Hehe.
We should get some emo myspace shots for funzies.
Infact we will get them because I've decided and what I say goes. :P xxx.
