Costume Information

Cost : £55
Time Taken : a week maybe

Well the reason for this cosplay was because my sis/best friend Sarah aka Salanica, refound episodes of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi and then asked me if I was interested. In the past I have once thought about it seeing as the way Ami and Yumi act are in ways similar to us, so I agreed and obviously chose to do Yumi (cause cute and sweet is Sarah's job XD )
And I had been trying to think of a nice, simple-ish cosplay to also take to london, though due to how her other cosplay will be done on the sunday, she can only do Ami on saturday which was when I wanted to do taelea @_@ so may have to do a half day cosplay of each XD

ALWAYS check shoe size (Posted 24th April 2010)

I reallly don't know how i could have missed it, but basically the first lot of boots that already had a delivery issue were the wrong size... And I do mean wrong @_@
I'm questioning why we even have kids shoes sizes and adult shoe sizes able to have the same size number; in the sense of kids size 6 and adult size 6.
But luckily they could be returned and found another pair which I MADE SURE were the right size.
