Costume Information

Description
Part of a group for May 2011. It's gonna be awesome~! >w< I'm looking foward to working on the jacket, I love making simple ones...and with a hood! And yellow fur-stuffs! Yus! Gloves will be a pain...but eh, it should be fairly easy overall, which is good...need time for my other May cosplays.

It'll probably be my last Len cosplay for a while too...the Pokemon and Syaoran cosplays will take precedence after thissun. (Or just general other cosplays xD)

Never posted who was cosplaying who and so on. These are our MCM forum names:

Len - KiraraYumi
Rin - JoMomma
Miku - Nen
Neru - Tiff
Teto - matsudamisamikami (if she can! Hope I got her whole username right xD)

If anyone wants to join the group...please do!8D Rin and I might be in the masq, but otherwise it's just a group for photos and general fun stuff =3

Also....BLARGH. This costume is going to have to be my last priority before May ToT
I gotta get Subaru finished and pretty, and Colette needs to be done sooner and I'm in uni and that means studying and wah! D8
BUT IT SHALL BE DONE.

Journal

I said I would redo it and I am gonna do so! (Posted 5th June 2013)

If things go as planned, I should be Sync Len at Oct '13 Expo and I wanna revamp pretty much EVERYTHING. Gawd this cosplay is legit awful haha. I ain't dealing with that fur again though so some things will have to stay. SO! I shall...

-Remake the jacket with better shape and nicer fabric (I'll be keeping the hood though)
-Remake the shirt out of something that isn't pillowcases
-Try to find longer shoes or mod some to be longer
-Get to the parts I didn't have time to make last time

I'll put in proper effort this time too! (pelicanbird and I pretty much /need/ fountain photos!)

So it has been completed... (Posted 24th May 2011)

Overall, it's quite crappy! xD This is the least amount of effort I've ever put into a cosplay evar. It took somewhere between 5 and 10 hours total...probably more like 5...that is nothing, gad. I just wasn't as enthusiastic to make it in the end (probably because I finished the cloak, which was my fave xD) so I just kinda...went for it. Wearing it will be fun, no doubt! My shirt looks...really bad. I can't make accurate turtlenecks, so the neck is MASSIVE. I look like I have a neck brace when I put it on. Also, the shirt is made out of two mutilated pillowcases. Make of that what you will xP

I WILL DEFINATLY BE REMAKING THIS. Because I need to. Shirt will be remade/fixed, accurate gloves will be made, I'll get a sword and make the sword-carrying belt. And it will all be totemo kireii da.

But why? D= (Posted 20th May 2011)

I have finished the cloak, huzzah! It just needs thread cut in certain areas and such...it's not brilliant, but it's good enough and I'm pleased with it. I had to handsew the fluff onto the hood...and my handsewing is quite crap, so that was interesting! xP I was able to pull the fur through the stitches though, so the horribleness isn't even visible. But handsewing....bleh, haha! xD

Despite the title, this is a happy journal! I only have the shirt left to make, which I started yesterday. Also started/finished the belt yesterday too...it took 10 mins, whoa! xP

Hurr (Posted 17th May 2011)

So, I haven't been working on this much....what I have is the result of about 2 hours work total &gt;_&gt;
Best part is, I'm not going to be able to complete this properly in time for Expo! Dx I forgot that I'd need the yellow bias for the gloves aswell and bought just enough for the jacket, so I think I'm going to just use my Magnet gloves....which are wool-like and have a design on them &gt;: But I'd rather those then same failed attempt at making my own yellow-less gloves.

This will be 100% complete, gloves and all, for whenever I have a photoshoot with pelicanbird....which will be sometime in the not too distant future at a very nice location. I hope xD

in short, by Expo-time this will not be my proudest cosplay, but it'll be &quot;good enough&quot;. It's not that I'm not taking it seriously, it's just not my top priority at the moment...
