Looking really good so far! Shame about the vest though (I know what you mean about details), how about a cheap toy/fancy dress one? It doesn't have to be perfect.

Journal

Test Shot (Posted 9th May 2010)

I decided to throw on what I have so far, just to see how it may look
(The shirt was just a random white one I found, should be buying a proper one tomorrow)

I'm happy with the skirt and belt =]
I do need to actually alter the skirt to make it shorter, temporarily just folded up but I think that length will be right right
As for the jumper/vest/thing, I think it's the best I can do for the police vest. I can't really afford to buy one, especially since I doubt I will have use for this cosplay again. I'm just gonna make a POLICE badge and hope people don't look too closely (this kills me, I'm a stickler for details, everything would be perfectly accurate if I could afford it)

Handcuffs were ordered yesterday
Found someone selling hat and necktie (and more handcuffs, as I only found it after I bought some) which I shall hopefully purchase and then this is almost complete
Tights also need to be ordered. Found some, just need to bother to get round to it
And shoes will have to be some I already have. They're black, with laces, ignore the white bit when you see them please?

However, still waiting for my wig to arrive
Expecting it this week hopefully

Thoughts (Posted 18th April 2010)

So there was an Eleven cosplayer on the MCM forums and I asked if they wouldn't mind being him on sunday as well, which they didn't so yay!

Think I'm mostly settled on doing her Kissogram/police outfit, seeing as this Eleven is being the scruffy version from The Eleventh Hour so it'll fit
I'm mostly assured that as long as I don't pretend to be a real police officer I will be fine

Problem comes with the wig
Found the perfect one (albeit too long, but cutting should be easy)
Except with this stupid ash and having all flights grounded it's not going to be able to get here from Hong Kong =\
I can buy a cheap one I guess, for now, but I'd rather not waste money
May seem if anyone has one I can borrow temporarily for the expo, and I can a wig later
