Costume Photos



Ah, with both your hands, Catch me for me

Clap your hands, not entirely childish, And watch, to this purposefully-crazed tune

Kalinka? Malinka?

Listen a little - it's something important Kalinka? Malinka? Just pinch my cheek

You and me, rendezvous? Rendezvous? Rendezvous?

The world will turn upside down

Just a patched up crazy Matryoshka

Oooh pretty light!



Costume Information

Cost : £6.50
Time Taken : 4.5 hours sewing

I recently fell in love with the character after seeing some of her designs and listening to her songs. This video in particular is very addicting and would make a very quick and simple cosplay. Weird video is weird but I like it :p

Considering that this is the easiest cosplay I had ever done, I adore how this turned out! Fun to wear, pleased with the whole image, self confidence, cosplaying with friends and just general epicness. I even went to a anime society committee meeting the night of the Nottingham meet fully in this XD

For those who are intreasted in making the hoodie, I just got a cheap one from a charity shop and also brought a black and a white piece of felt. I started by cutting 2 half crescent shapes for the mouth and handsewn the teeth on. I made the teeth different sizes to create a more wild, jagged effect. For the eyes I just used random little objects from my room as stencils and resized them. After briefly handsewing them too I used my sewing machine to secure it all in place.

The wig, tights and boots were already owned.

Tights£3.00To Buy
Face paint£0.00To Buy


Dots (Posted 20th May 2011)

My dad brought home some black beads from work and decided that they would work for the dots on the hood.

Thought I'd add the finishing touches :D

Hoodie!!! (Posted 8th January 2011)

Got one for £4 from a charity shop ^_^

Wasnt keen on it at first as its quite wooly but as soon as I put it on it looked kinda nice ^_^

I now have some white felt for the teeth. I just need to draw the detail onto them, cut them and sew them to the hood. Should be easy enough ^_^

Now I have everything for it I'd better get cracking as I plan to wear it for a cosplay meet tomorrow. GOGOGOGOGOGOOOOO!!!!!

Gloves (Posted 2nd January 2011)

Found a suitable pair at Tescos while shopping for booze on New Years eve.

Hoodie (Posted 29th December 2010)

Just brought a square piece of felt ready. Should have some white scrap somewhere from my Rosetta cosplay for the teeth.

1, 2, 3, 4 (Posted 27th December 2010)

I just feel in love with her design recently and thought this would make a nice simple cosplay. Not sure what for yet, likely for cosplay meetups and maybe a Kitacon precon/party.

The hoodie should be insanely easy, just buy one cheap from Primark and get some fleece or whatever and cut and sew the detail. I could easily get away with my Ranka wig as the back is hidden and could use eyeliner for the makeup.

The botton half isnt shown in the vid but what I have in mind now is a black skirt. Saw a fanart with her wearing red and black tights which I may consider knowing me :p Gloves can be ebayed.
