Costume Information

Cost : £30ish
Time Taken : A couple of days to make the coat :3

I was planning to cosplay something else for the saturday of expo... But as soon as Ruth and Helen mentioned they were doing Fruits Basket, all my other plans went out the window xD Furuba was my first manga, so a chance to cosplay from it was a total dream♥

I'm a total Kyo fangirl, to the point where I actually didn't want to cosplay him incase I couldn't pull off his sexiness xD (same problem with Dark Mousy from DNAngel orz;; ). So instead, I chose to be the Ayame to Xigalicious' Shigure ;3; (If only we had a Hatori... >3>;; ). It was sooo much fun flouncing around acting super camp xD And it's a reasonably comfortable costume too; but my first long wig D8 Hnnngggg long wigs are so annoying OTL;;; I'm going to have to give it some serious post-expo TLC;;; I don't think it suited my face either >__>;;

As for the coat, it was simple enough to make : D The bias tape was a liiittle bit of a bitch to sew on, but nothing too disastrous. I had to sew the frogs on twice; the first time I sewed them on wonky OTL;; That'll teach me to sew and skype at the same time;; I can't multitaskkkk.... *is a dude*

I just can't wait till summer now so we can get some photos!! Along with me as Aya, Ruth as Shigure and Helen as Hatsuharu, we're also gathering a little bit of a casual-furuba-cosplay group, so that'll be fun 8D♥
