Costume Information

Time Taken : 4 Days

Never knew I'd do this cosplay for this expo, I was meant to do another but Yas convinced me to cosplay as Rin x__X;;
It isn't 100% finished, I wish I had more time on my time.

Jacket, skirt, shirt, corset, bow (at the back) made by me
The bow and wig was made and borrowed from WhaleInTheSky (but I put the ribbon on the bow)


On the actually days when I worked on this, overall 4 days, it makes me feel quite crazy. I'm annoyed at myself for various reasons because you can tell that it's completely rushed, I can't make gloves to save myself and the gold pattern bits, I said earlier that I refused to make them because it was too complex for my liking. But the outfit itself is. Though, I'm proud that I could finished this but I regret not finishing it properly. This was a last minute cosplay and I hate the fact that I was so easily convinced to do this >__>;;
I had trouble making the jacket, I had to re-sew the left sleeve three times because I did something wrong and for the skirt. It was somewhat big on me, so I added a zip but that sadly didn't work and Yas suggested braces, which I luckily had, woop~ I feel conscience for having the skirt short at the back @o@/ I'll be wearing shorts though. I wish I had more money for gold ribbon because it looks too plain otl The corset was hard to make, since I didn't make it properly but it fits. I made the white shirt thing underneath but I will admit, I did cheat my way making this. The detail of the collar isn't right at all, I wish I added more detail on it. For the skirt, I wish I added another layer. With the extended sleeves, I decided to make it like arm warmer things (sorry I can't think of the right word for it) and I used the leftovers of the white material that I had to make it longer like, because it looks strange. Rin's sleeves confused me otl I didn't have white tights, but I already had white socks and wore those and for the black ribbon, I got too much, I bought 5m because I got worried that it wouldn't be enough XD;; When I sewed the buttons on the sleeves, it turned out that I sewed them on the wrong side, so I quickly had to sew them on the other side otl The shoes, I already had and I've worn a couple of times as Lelouch, I hope it works, so I could be at least the same height as my Len~

There's a lot of things that I regret on doing for this cosplay but I love it and I'm glad that Yas convinced me to cosplay as her even though it's so rushed, I'm sorry for those that I let down with this. I couldn't bring enough justice but I'm pleased with it and when I actually complete it, I'll hope to get a shoot with it :3

Thank you Charlotte for letting me be your Rin, I can't wait to take pictures with my twin <33

(I'm sorry that this didn't make any sense because I don't have my glasses and I'm too lazy to spell or grammar check *shot* I think this is the longest update on a cosplay that I've ever done otl)



My ribbon on my bow started to wear away and it kept on getting caught onto things. And my FITTED corset kept on falling off me, the heck, why? xD I'm guessing the stitching was getting loose or something but it was so much fun to wear :3

It will be on finished, until I start this again....I'll probably remake the corset and the bow at the back and I sew on the gold pattern bits and ribbon. I'll hope to do this again next year for a shoot :3
