|Time Taken :||<10 Hours|
|COSTUME BASICS: ~ STORE BOUGHT/MODIFIED ~|
GENERAL INFO: I ended up wearing her all 3 days of London MCM Expo! She's really comfortable to wear so I had an awesome time. I was even in the giant Scott Pilgrim group, which was a lot of fun, there were two other Ramonas too :3
I still have modifications I'd like to make to this costume, since I never did get the hammer done and some of the smaller details were wrong. All in all though, I think I did a good job. It's just a shame that no-one recognised the outfit XD
SHOPPING INFO: T-Shirt, Gloves and Hoodie were from Primark. Skirt, Legwarmers and Tights were from eBay. Jerome Russell hair peroxide/bleach kit was from Savers. Doc Martens were from Chinese Laundry.

ReCon (Posted 24th October 2010)
Well, I wore my semi-finished Ramona to ReCon and managed to get a couple of photos. All in all I really like it, and I think I'm doing really well (not being big headed or anything though XD)
I have however, just realised I've forgotten something ~__~ Her necklace of string and that she has a real belt! What I'll have to do is source these from things I already own, so it won't be 100% accurate but it's better than nothing!
Back On Track (Posted 7th October 2010)
Well, I've been away from Cosplay for a while because life and money have been gettig in the way! Buuuut, I've gotten back into it and I'm proud to say Ramona is probably 70% done now. All that's left is the props and some slight modifications, so I'm very positive about her!
I should be putting up more info about props in the next week or so, but no promises ;)
Bag Part 3 (Posted 13th September 2010)
I made another strip of gray fabric, roughly 2 or 3 inches wide. This is the bottom of thr bag, so it's gotta be sturdy!
I loosly hand-stitched both circles to this, so I can go over it on the machine later. This is also measured to accurately fit around the zip, so everything will be nice and even!
Bag Part 2 (Posted 13th September 2010)
I loosly hand-stitched through the lining and the bag itself, around the foam circle, to make one side of the bag. It's actually sturdier than I thought! I left a lot of excess on the sides, so that I can easily sew on the strap and the middle section (including the zip) later.
Bag Part 1 (Posted 13th September 2010)
Well, I bought all of the materials for the bag today, and started to work on it. I'm going for the film versoin, but I couldn't find any of that greeny-grey fabric it's actually made of- it was either very very green, or gray. So I picked Gray. I think it's cotton drill, I'm not sure lol!
Hair Phase 1 (Posted 10th September 2010)
I cut it off :3
Moar Stuff (Posted 9th September 2010)
I bought my hoodie today!~ It's a dark navy but it's PLAIN! So it should be okay :) I'm going to add the stripes on Monday/Tuesday when I get around to buying some white bias tape.
Getting my hair cut tommorrow, and the dying starts next week, so fingers croseed for that :D
T-Shirt (Posted 6th September 2010)
I bought my T-Shirt today!!
Also, it's a man's size, so it's longer than it should be. But, I can either tuck it in, or just let it hang naturally and see which I A) Feel comfortable in and B) Looks more appropriate.
