|Time Taken :||2 hours so far|
|So having a trip to Japan this April (2013) and as part of the trip we will be spending a few days in Ikebukuro. While I was thinking about cosplays I am taking with me I realize that the jacket and shirt I am making for my Ran Mouri School Uniform would work for an Anri cosplay. Bow Ties are cool and I often wear anyway so it will just be a case of adding a new skirt and I have some darker blue cotton drill fabric left over from an abandoned project. Hopefully there will be some sort of cosplay meet in Ikebukuro while we're there as cosplaying in public is frowned upon. Failing this - we will get some location shots and then photoshop my Anri into them at a later date :) |
Anri was one of my favorite characters from the series. I liked the complexity of her character and had been meaning to cosplay her for a while - so this sounded like a good excuse :P

Productive Day Not So Productive :( (Posted 29th March 2013)
Today something I had planned to do had got postponed which meant I earnt a day back sewing. Unfortunately it wasn't productive at all and all I managed to complete was Anri's Bow (though I am yet to add a strap) but some progress is better then no progress I guess?
Glasses (Posted 28th March 2013)
Opted for some fancy dress John Lennon glasses. They appear to be the right shape and the only thing I could find that would arrive in time. Plus the lenses are plain so I don't have to punch them out to wear them - and are apparently UV protective.

Wig Ordered (Posted 28th March 2013)
Being that it's just over 2 weeks before our trip I didn't want to risk ordering item from China even though it would of been cheaper. Ordered the item within the country and should arrive next week some time ready for styling. Not bad for £10 though. Hope it is as good as the picture.
