Description
I am making Ran's school uniform for a case closed/detective conan group a friend is organising.

I love Ran cause of her no-nonsense Karate Action! She's the best!

UPDATE: 24/03/13
So I will be heading to Japan next month and as part of the trip I will be attending the Gosho Aoyama Manga Factory so naturally I wanted to cosplay Ran on this trip (as they have a cosplay area but I think I would feel more comfortable wearing my own :D). Unfortunatly I wasn't very happy with my version 1 of this cosplay and so I am planning to remake it for the trip and managed to find some really good fabric for it this weekend so very excited to get started on Version 2 :D

OMG XD you know what's weird? I had found this before you commented on my Gin cosplay...so just as I had to sign in to tell you how awesome you were for cosplaying Ran...I found out you had beat me to it and found Gin first! lol

First of all...Detective Conan FTW, and secondly..did you wear it at Kita?? Cause I only saw you there as Meryl and a resident evil character >__< man it would have been SO great if we had found each other for a photoshoot atleast.....but then again...Gin, Vodka and Ran...um..not a good situation XD lol

I was actually expecting a Kaito Kid to be there as well...but he couldn't make it :/

Jacket Complete (Posted 11th April 2013)

Jacket is finished! I really don't like making collars and always seem to mess them up but I am quite pleased with how this one came out. I think the buttons is a tad on the high side but hopefully with the tie and shirt on this won't be as obvious. Though I may move it lower if I have time :) And it may be because I've spent forever comparing different version of Ran for button location - or because the button is just so darn big :S

Skirt Complete (V2) (Posted 4th April 2013)

At last progress! I'm pleased with the fabric but the skirt hangs a little odd while I'm wearing it. I think I might of made the pleats a little too wide but I think with a little tweaking I can improve this. Though equally it may be because I've made several pleated skirts I've got fussy and expect them to sit dead flat:P The colour of the fabric is actually lighter then that depicted in the photo.

The Jacket is at 70% complete I just need to add a collar to it.

Wig Ordered (V2) (Posted 24th March 2013)

Not sure if the wig will arrive in time as it is coming from China but the last two things I ordered from China arrived in like a week or so (much to my surprise :D)Not sure if it will look as good as in the picture but here's hoping. Plus worse case scenario I can get some clip in extensions in my hair colour and make a clip in quiff :D

converse! (Posted 17th March 2010)

converse have arrived and dyed suit but it didn't work :( took the fabric out too soon and it come out aweful but will be redying it at the weekend and allowing it to dry in the sunny weather so will be finished in time 4 kita easy :D

90% complete (Posted 8th March 2010)

Have just dyed my suit - so now I have smuf hands (again) :S also bought the converse on sunday so all that's left is for it all to dry and be ironed and then the shoes turn up so then I will post pictures :D

14/02/2010 (Posted 14th February 2010)

So far I've:

Bought a White Suit Jacket
Half way through making a white pleated skirt
Bought blue dye
Sorted out how to make my hair do the quif thing rachel's does.
Got White Socks.

All I need to do is finish skirt, dye the jacket and skirt, buy some green converse - fake ones will be fine to keep costs down :)
