|Crash Bandicoot is probably my most favourite video game series of all time (if I don't know what to play, I stick one of the Crash games on). I know the games inside and out and my discs are scratched so badly from the amount I've played them over and over again.|
Coco is my favourite character so one day I'd like to give cosplaying her a try. It'd certainly be different. :B

Yaaaaaay (Posted 29th January 2011)
Finally got around to finishing the overalls today :B Wasn't much of a job, just needed actually doing! I'm not happy with the legs (I wanted them to flare out more) but I'll deal with it.

Today I started making the overalls! I've almost finished them, now...I've just got to hem the legs, attach the buttons, then make some buttonholes, and they'll be done and dusted. :D

My wig arrived today :D It's such nice quality! I'll be sad when I have to style it and cut it :(
Yay! (Posted 1st December 2010)
My orange lycra and my orange facepaint arrived :) Unfortunately I'm rather ill atm, so I haven't actually sewn anything together yet! D:
Wiggedy what (Posted 29th November 2010)
Bought the wig :D
More stuff! (Posted 27th November 2010)
My mum wanted to go to the fabric store after she'd been to work today, and seeing as I was picking her up, I went with her and decided to buy some more stuff for Coco.
I got five metres of light blue cotton for half the price I was expecting, and I really like the colour. They had a lot of bright, zingy blues that were nice, but in most of my reference pictures Coco's overalls were closer to the colour I chose in the end. :) I got five metres because I plan to double up the fabric, as it's slightly see-through with just one layer.
I also got a sheet of blue craft foam for the hair flower, which I'm going to be using paint and/or copic markers on to make it a bit more textured. I also got a sheet of orange felt and a sheet of brown felt for the ears; I did actually want to use craft foam for them too, but they didn't have either colour so I went with felt instead.
I also bought two big pink buttons for the straps on the overalls! :) They're really cute and I like how bright they are. They're not the type of button I first wanted, but the rest of the pink buttons were either too dull or too small, so I think I chose well, considering.
Might start working on this tomorrow. :>
Started already... (Posted 26th November 2010)
Okay so, I couldn't help it...I started buying things for Coco. So far I've bought a t-shirt from Asda (woo!), some orange Snazaroo facepaint and some matt orange lycra. This cosplay is going to be more expensive than I first thought, unfortunately - but the price of the wig is what pushes it up! I'm going to be buying a base wig, then buying a clip on ponytail to save me the trouble of trying to style a wig into a high ponytail and potentially ruining it.
I plan to use cotton or polycotton for the overalls as it's easy to get in nice bright colours, so that will hopefully keep the overall cost down. Plus, I've seen some suitable cotton in the fabric store near my boyfriend's house, so I will probably go and buy some soon. :)
Also, I'm gonna be using some pink trainers that I've had for years if I don't find/make anything more suitable. They're comfy and cute, and I love wearing them. :D
