Description
I chose this cosplay because I love Lucky Star, and Kagami is one of my fav chars. I find it so easy to get into her character, and I really enjoy being her. The hardest part of this was definitely the skirt because well..pleated skirts are hard :'D The easiest part...hmm...probably the cuffs. This was my first cosplay that was almost entirely handmade, the only thing I bought was the basic shirt (and I really edited that!). From this I learnt that I need LOTS of bias tape for seifukus (I ran out!) and to cut the skirt first, then make the pleats. It was so fun wearing it, and like I said, I love being her :P

Decision (Posted 5th June 2010)

I decided to do the summer version as seen in the picture. Personally, I prefer it, I'd rather wear it to LFCC seeing as it's in July, and it'll be harder to find a long sleeve shirt. I'm really excited to make this!!
