Costume Information

General
Time Taken : One month

Description
Basically, I'll buy the cosplay outfit when I go on a holiday to Thailand (cosplay outfits are cheaper there~ *evil grin*) And I might stock up on other cosplay outfits too! XD If I can't find the outfit, I'll probably make it myself since it's not that hard to put together. :3

The outfit is a long black tight-fitting dress with white cuffs and a white neck collar. I'll also have to get a pink wig to match the character (although I'm convinced to just cut my hair and dye it that colour XD) and I might actually get a Ragnarok doll and attach it to my back or head(?) and also get Chrona's signature black blood sword. :3

Thanks for the comment on Envy, I really appreciate it ^_^

This will be interesting to see in October, I'll look out for you :D

Good luck making the sword (I know how much of a b*tch swords can be, heck I had to make 3 of them, and their sheaths XD) and have fun with that collar, it looks a little difficult but I'm sure you'll manage and do great! Post progress pics when you have them, I wanna see :D

I can't wait to see you in this ^^ i text you about needing help with Maka's scythe (sp?)..I can't seem to find one in costume shops to paint..they're all super tiny >.< youtube has tutorials on making them with paper mache, but with my luck it'll turn out bad, bah. Do you think Tokyo Toys will have it since you've been there?

Ah, I forgot to reply to that text! I received it in the middle of a lesson, I think, and I planned on replying later. XD But anyway, hm, I don't think Tokyo Toys does it, there are props there but I don't see many Soul Eater stuff (there's lots of Naruto and Suzumiya Haruhi stuff there =.=). I checked there once to see if they did my Chrona sword and they don't have it either so I have to make mine. :/ I'm getting a plastic sword and decorating it to look like Chrona's and as for the scythe, I think getting a pole and making a cardboard blade is the easiest and most popular way? Sorry that I'm not much help. >o<;

lol that's ok ^^ somebody from the forums suggested his friend who makes weaponry for cosplay, so i'm going to pay her to do it..i found one off ebay but i am not paying £70 plus £50 shipping on top >__< geez ha.
If she can't do it or doesn't make it in time i'll opt for the cardboard one! If only i knew somebody who cosplayed as her before i could borrow theirs, grr >.< xo

@Sailorette: Like we talked about on facebook, if the scythe can't be done, then it's alright since we have lots of Souls xD but yeah, if you're gonna make a cardboard one, you've gotta be careful with it since the expo will be crowded :3 Even plastic stuff gets broken xD (I once cosplayed as Sephiroth and got my wing torn and the other time, I cosplayed as Yuffie and got my oversized shuriken broken and lost ;w;)

Ebay cosplay stuff isn't really expensive, it's usually the shipping that costs so much. =o= I was gonna get a sailor uniform which was £20 but the shipping included cost £70+ D:<

i like the idea o u making a ragnorak plushie too - when my friend did chrona in our soul eater group last year she got her lil sister to dress up as him and piggybacked her all day was so funny!

Why thank you~! ^__^ <3 Yeah, styling wigs could be a pretty big risk xD and I'm not that big a fan of risks so I decided to play it safe and keep my wig the way it is :L

D8 I'm gutted that I missed the photoshoot on Saturday, i passed you all but had to sort my hair out and get changed from lolita! Plus my trousers' belt loops had broke AGAIN D8 I fixed them and they broke again xD! I was going to join in on Sunday instead, but..the hetalia meet was very fun xD
I'm glad I saw you though, even if it was briefly ^^! I deffo wanna wear Liz again at some point, so, maybe we'll be able to see each other then? xD

Yeah, I saw that lots of people missed the Saturday shoot 'cause there were two photoshoots organized at the same time, I think xD we really should arrange another Soul Eater group sometime since lots of you guys missed it and besides, it'd be awesome :3
