|Shugo Chara is an awesome anime and Ikuto is definately my favourite character from it, besides his chara Yoru =D. So I'm going to do this for May Expo '09, hopefully complete with my own hand-made Yoru plushie ^^.|

Finishing touches (Posted 25th April 2009)
It is done, the cross is made and attachable to the top, the tail is sewn to the trousers and I remade the wrist strap for the claws (original was too unstable and one of the claws fell off).
Only need to attach the ears to the wig to complete this costume and I am expecting the wig in the mail sometime in the week or two ^^.
Nearly done...and still a month to go...wtf!!!? (Posted 20th April 2009)
Thanks to the help of my aewsome girlfriend, Mtani, I have managed to complete Ikuto's clothing. Effectively the costume is complete in the sense that I now have all of it made (except the cross), I just need to attach the tail to the costume and ears to the wiig (when it gets here).
The first costume I have ever done that was completed ahead of time XD
Cats ears....wait...thats not the saying, is it? o.O (Posted 21st March 2009)
I recieved the foam, I really didnt think how much I had ordered XD Considering I only planned to use it for Ikutos cat ears I have quite a bit left so I think that will go towards Dilandaus armour.
Anyways, the ears are made, they look ok, you can tell they are the first I have made though XD. Also remade the tail and I am much happier with v.2 =)
Just the cross accessory and the clothes to make now, best get to drawing some patterns out XD.
Edit: why doesn't this display commas properly? 'o.O'
Fur and Pleather (Posted 15th March 2009)
I completed the claws now and attached them to the wrist strap (made of pleather), have also made all the 'belt' pieces of the costume with the same pleather. Made the tail, but i'm not sure about it, may remake it =/
Ordered some furniture foam to make his ears and have the material for the clothing so that's next ^^
First Entry (Posted 2nd March 2009)
I'm late in starting this, I actually ordered the wig in January and have finished the claws (though I may do more with them, unsure =/). I get money this weekend so that will be going towards everything else I need for this cosplay ^^.
