Costume Information

i would love to do this as she was my fav character when i was a child i loved this series so much i still have the videos somewhere :D

to be worn on friday whilst doing some filming lol XD i shall be behind the camera thank god XD

and thank you to my wonderful boyfriend for lending me one of his professional microphones (i must not damage at all or he will kill me XD )

i think im all set to go

but where are those turtles when you need them !

OMG I MEAN OMG on saturday of expo may 2012 i was being guest liason officer(basically making sure the guests got to stage on time XD)

so waiting to show on the stage KEVIN EASTMAN (TMNT part creator)

i had a lovely chat saying he should have been there on the friday cos i was cosplaying April O'neil and he basically told me to go get changed into her to lead them on stage alas as i was working i couldnt do so but im so gutted

on a side note every guest was amazing and i adore Holland from Teen Wolf she is so funny and Raphael told my partner that i was a great girl XD so much for me being the shy one however im happy to give this job back to the main lady and be a con goer again XD i missed cosplaying but thank you expo for giving me this oppertunity to help out dont know how you guys stay awake from 8 am to 2 am the following day you guys are mad!!!!

Shopping List

yellow fabric£3.00Bought
boots - yuna wedding dress £0.00Bought
zip £3.00Bought


change of wig (Posted 16th May 2012)

ok the first wasss waaay to thin and too red and the new one is thick but too brown ohh well lol

wip (Posted 8th May 2012)

spent most of the day fixing this from the pattern... but cos of time i wont get all the details completed in time

lol (Posted 29th April 2012)

i was thinking yea ill give this a go it houldnt take long... bam the pattern appears at work..... bam some yellow fabric appears thus it must be done lol

i have made a jump suit before (gold Garnet) however that was made with lycra so if you got the wrong sizing dont worry iy will stretch, here i dont have the same luxury it has to be spot on or it wont fit gahhhh

the wig is very red not to happy but i cant change it now so ill just cut and style it
