Costume Information

i made this for a Persona 4 shoot that my friend CrystalNeko arranged :) She said I'd suit Nanako the most (I knew nothing of the game then) so I did a lot of research and youtube watching (still haven't played the game yet =/) so I did that :)

I used my own hair for her bunches, I had a white top already and I made the dress from a pattern, it was tricky to get the three tiered colours but it worked :) but it was so short I had to wear leggings underneath which was good as it was windy X____X I had white socks and black school shoes (couldn't find pink ones in time) and then I made some pink hair ribbons to go on my bunches :)

The shoot was really fun and I think I got some really good photos :D

Completed!! (Posted 25th July 2010)

Nanako is now finished! I made some hair ribbons yesterday :) I'm really looking forward to wearing this on the meet!!!

Patterrrrrrrrrn (Posted 14th July 2010)

Ok so after some faffing around with the pattern (I'm reprinting it out as we speak as the first time I printed it out the setting were wrong so it came out too small! It looks much better now but I'm wasting so much paper ^_^;;; lmao.

Anyway once that's sorted I WILL get cracking on the dress then it's finished :D
As for the pink shoes, I haven't been able to find any suitable pink shoes within budget so I'm going to wear my Phoenix Wright shoes. Yes they're men shoes but they're the closest to smart school-like shoes I have :P

Fabric arrives! (Posted 23rd June 2010)

The fabric arrived this morning! I chose first class delivery because it was only like 20p more than standard class so I thought what the heck lol!

THe polycotton is perfect, just what I wanted. I wanted something light and cool for summer, but didn't want anything satiny/silky because since Nanako isn't that I doubt the dress would have that sort of material. It seemed more like a practical dress than a party dress, ya? (lol wakka speak)

Fabriiics (Posted 21st June 2010)

so I've bought some fabric online, polycotton in red, burgundy and pink. I've also found a better dress pattern that I will have to download. I'll do that once the fabric arrives :) also bought a zip in case the dress pattern requires it (couldn't see the info for the dress ie what it requires because the link was broken >_>)

Dress pattern (Posted 17th June 2010)

I found a suitable dress pattern online, once I get the chance I'll download it and print it out at home. All I need to do is cut the little v neck (it's a high neck dress, couldn't find a dress with the right neck) and then I'll be set. I have a sort of idea how to do the three colours, it'll take a lot of experimenting though.
