Description
AHAHAHAHAR~!

I was considering this cosplay, but the fact it'll be hard puts me off.. but then I saw another cosplay of this, and she inspired me so much that now I realise that I really DO want to do this cosplay! ^^ No matter how hard it is!
Probably wont have glasses for this one.. I'm not sure. Do you think Igiko would've had glasses back then? :/ It was like her teens years, right? So.. it's hard to tell if she would've had them or not xDD
The other girl's cosplay had glasses, and it looked really good with them.

Yeah.. any help is appreciated xD

EDIT: Soooo, I'm doing this for 11th July at Scarborough! ^^ It's going to be epic~! Two days b4 mai 17th birthday 8D
I still need a lot more, but hopefully Leeds will have what i need, because i can't use the internets D8 my Dad uses his card to buy things online, and atm, he has nothing on it, so yeah >.< gah! There's an epic sword aswell on eBay DD8
Pirate hat was going to be from castleford but they started selling in Leeds so I got it here :D

EDIT 2: So, tomorrow's the day! ^^
My sword, by some miracle, had been attempted to be delivered today. But, it was at 7:35am, and in my house NO ONE is awake at that time D'8 so I wont have it for tomorrow..but, I'll still have it for October ^^ we'll have to go get it maybe on my birthday O.O
Wales is letting me borrow one of her sowrds~
The gun is the last thing needed, but it isn't that important ^^ so i'm marking this as complete~!

Love the hat! And I tried those boots on! The sizing was pretty messed up -.-''
They look good though!
Maybe you could add some buckles on if you don't think they have enough :)

Otaku Attack! (Posted 8th August 2010)

Yesterday was Otaku Attack in Leeds :3 it was only 4 hrs( it said it ended at 3 but we all ended up being there an extra hour somehow xD ) but it was awesome!! Plus ANU managed to get some new members ^^ and we handed out all my cosplay cards, lol. So if you got one, please let me know :P I know my cosplayisland details were on it~!
I didn't get many photos Dx but instead I drew a lot O.o and danced. And my hair got messed up from dancing Dx
I also won 3rd Place in the cosplay contest!! 8D I'm mega chuffed with that~<3
Although the prizes are a naruto collectors edition book and a bleach...thing O.o book. Buttt I don't like Naruto and idk about Bleach xD so if anyone wishes to buy them, please drop me a line<3

Scarborough! (Posted 12th July 2010)

was.freakin.amazing.
I was going to wear my England bikini, but the day b4 i decided not to...but ended up playing in the ocean anyway and drenching myself XD well, rather, CERTAIN OTHERS were drenching me XD mainly, FRANCE. But that way we got to do a shipwrecked film thing xD hehe.
So yeah :D I hadn't had that much fun in a while ^_^ obviously I go to the ANU meets and love seeing and hanging out with everyone<3 but I actually acted in char a lot more this time so hence enjoyed it more! Although, I did fail at being seme Dx
Photos will be up soon when I'm given them x3
Annoyingly, I brought my rings with me to put on during the train journey...but forgot D8 so didn't wear them, only realised when home XD;
But at expo I will remember!!

Funny XD (Posted 20th June 2010)

Isn't it funny how you start something thinking you have hardly any of the stuff you'll need, and it turns out that, oh wait, you do have a few thigns already! xD
I realised my winter coat would work for a pirate coat xD it's not that warm, it's just slightly itchy >.< but I have a long sleeved top so yeah. I still have to wear a jacket under it in winter. LOL THE AMOUNT OF STICKY-ROLLERING I HAD TO DO. You know those lint rollers i think they're called? Meh, we call them sticky-rollers XD because i live with 3 cats, it took forever to get most of the fur off. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GET IT ALL OFF D8 I'm thankfully not THAT much of a perfectionist. It wouldn't work though, as over time more fur would get on the damned thing. Black fabrics + Cats = D8 cat fur sticking to the fabric. Not fun to get off.
I was thinking how if i were being a furry pirate, liek a cat pirate, it would be fine!! XD

For the red belt/sash thing, I'm using the free red fabric I got for my Haruhi arm band XD There's a fair amount, and I think even if i cut it and made it an actual belt thing, I'd still have enough for the armband =w= but for now, I'm keeping it as it is ^^

soooo yeah. I just really need a pirate hat( castleford ), sword, boots, and gun now! ^^ I'll hopefulyl have enough money XD LOL Leeds have a LOT of pirate boots. WhatIsThisIDon'tEven.
