Description
SUCH A COMFY COSTUME! MY NEW CASUAL COSTUME 8D

Mitsuru is my favourite gal in P3, she's overly confident, has attitude and is downright kickass! Plus she uses ice babyyyyy~

Costs:
Long curly red wig £21.99
1m Black cotton drill £3
2 Silver buttons £1.02
Black zip £1-2??
Long black boots £10 (Though they weren't bought specifically for this costume so it's not included in the total costs)

The black skirt is your normal box pleated skirt with just four pleats in them, so lets say they're giant pleats!, waistband and zip sewn on later. The silver buttons were added on as well although I might change them at some stage because they don't show up very well in photos!

The blouse is a blouse I got from Primark years ago. I was going to make or modify one so that it was more accurate but... I couldn't be bothered xD; Maybe some other time loool!

The bow was one long strip of fabric, hemmed and then tied into a bow. It clips onto the blouse because there was way too much fabric for it to tie round my neck and it would have looked rather odd!

The SEES armband is another strip of fabric, hemmed, pencilled in the details and went over it with a permanent black marker. I did try other methods but I think the black marker worked the best!

Over time I hope to make the evoker, so watch this space =)

I looove this costume~~~~ I love being a redhead so much :'D

Evokers 100% (Posted 13th August 2012)

Full details on how I made them to come in my description.
I forgot to engrave the screws detailing, woops. I'll do that for the next time I wear this.

I made an evoker belt last year for Japan Expo as well, unfortunately I can't seem to find it. Will need to make another one with the spare white leather and buckram I have. Sadly didn't have time to do this for Ame but I shall make it quickly before putting the costume away so I know everything is together.

Evoker 50% (Posted 11th July 2012)

Picture stolen from Mel's facebook trolololol.

Finally going back to this cosplay a year later. Rewore her last year for Japan Expo but didn't post progress as I made the belt in the hotel room... I'll post pictures when I can find the thing!

For the evokers, I had some A3 foam board spare from when I made Noel's (Blazblue) Bolverk. One A3 sheet was large enough to fit 2 evokers on which was perfect, as I was making two.

I found a vector trace of the evokers on deviantART (will link in actual description) which I enlarged on my laptop by working out the scaling through some odd calculations and then traced it by sticking paper on top of my laptop screen... The things I do to save ink XD;

I then drew out one layer with the trigger, followed by two layers without the trigger onto foam board. Then repeated for a second evoker. This was glued together with impact adhesive then Freyarule used some air fimo to seal the edges of the foam board whilst I cut out all the craft foam layers. Each side has two layers of craft foam so far, which was then covered by air fimo by myself once more.

We'd have carried on but there's barely any craft foam left as I only bought one A3 sheet... Damn XD;

Time Taken: 6hrs

Forgot to upload this photo xD;;

Close up of the SEES armband for ya~

30/03/2010 - Pretty much done! XD (Posted 30th March 2010)

TAKE THAT MITSURU!

Costume is all done, waheeeey x)

Sewed on the silver buttons onto the skirt... They don't show up very well though T^T

Made the SEES armband - leftover red cotton drill from Meroko and did the outline in pencil first then went over it in permanent marker.

Bow is made from the same fabric as the armband... I think I went a bit overboard with the size xD;;;

AND I GOT A NEW BEYOOTIFUL WIG <33333

I think that's it! x)

I hope to make an evoker in the future, I -really- want one for Minami but we gotta see if time allows me to!! I've got the outline drawn out, it's a start! :'D
And in the future if I can ever be bothered I'll modify the boots so that it has accurate straps... But I need pleather for that and sadly I don't have that lying around xD (Yes, Mitsuru was pretty much made up of scrap fabric LOL)

Time Taken - 1-2hrs
Costs: Wig £22
2 Silver buttons £1.02

07/03/2010 - PROGRESS! (Posted 7th March 2010)

Hell yes, I've -kinda- got my cosplay motivation back! Mind my cosplay motivation for my MAIN cosplays *coughSethcough* hasn't returned just yet, so I'm playing with simple things at the moment~~

Soooo, I decided to finally get a move on with Mitsuru~
I had lots of black cotton drill (And I mean LOTS!). It's perfect for making pleated skirts, and so this is what I did. I spent ages trying to figure out how her skirt drapes actually, but it looks like your normal pleated skirt tbh. I haven't had a chance to iron the pleats in which is why it sticks out quite a bit, but I quite like it like this, I may or may not keep it like this!
I don't actually have a zip readily available though... So it's held together with a safety pin until I go out and buy one x'D (I need to buy the silver buttons too)

The blouse is probably the blouse I'm going to use, I don't have time (nor can I be bothered lolol) to make one that's 100% accurate >_<;

The ribbon was for picture purposes only. I'll be making a bow I'll have you know XD

The boots were suppose to be for casual wear but they hurt my feet too much if I wear them for too long ;_; So they shall be for cosplay purposes instead! 8D (I think they're pretty good for Mitsuru actually!)

The wig is for picture purposes unless I can't afford a proper wig in time, in which case I'll just wear this one until I can afford a longer one!

Time Taken: 1-2hrs
Costs: 1m Black cotton drill £3
Long black boots £10
