Hey there! I thought it might be a little easier if I answered you here ^^
I actually found braces on a pair of trousers I had a long while ago I thought I'd NEVER use...and my shoes? Just school shoes...

I think I remember replying to you about this before on your thread ^^"

The only help I can provide about Shoes and Braces is trying Shoe Zone for his dolly shoes, and Braces...only place I saw was Claire's :/ with them, but they werent in brown. Again, Primark is another suggestion, but I can't remember if they did sell those. If you weren't able to find them, I'm sorry I can't be of more help! >_<

Good luck! =]

Went to Expo! (Posted 30th October 2011)

Wow. EPIC TIME AT EXPO! I went in this Luke costume and I had an amazing time!
I'm not sure if I'm going to retire this cosplay. It was my first and I did spend months working on it.
Most of the stuff I'll be able to wear again.
The question is... what will be my next cosplay?

Pictures uploaded! (Posted 18th September 2011)

Check out the pictures I uploaded!
I'm styling my hair on the day, so in the pictures my hair is normal. When Expo comes, my hair will be like Luke's.
Also, sorry for not getting my shoes in any of the pictures - then again, you have something new to see on the day! ^_^

Pictures! (Posted 17th September 2011)

Pictures of my cosplay will be online today or tomorrow.
I'm only going to make my hair like Luke's on the day.
Bye! ^_^
P.S. If anyone is cosplaying a Professor Layton or Phoenix Wright character on the SATURDAY of London MCM October Expo 2011, find details on a meet-up and photoshoot here:

COMPLETE! (Posted 16th August 2011)

The Luke costume is now complete! All ready for Expo now - pics to come!


Button done! (Posted 10th August 2011)

Hey world,
The final pieces are coming together now! The braces and the accent (just to get into character!) I need to get and work on.
I'll hopefully complete Luke by September!
See y'all!

Shoes have arrived! (Posted 9th August 2011)

Title explains it all - the shoes have arrived! I'm scared by how much they look like Luke's...
Braces, accent and button to go!

Buttons and braces. (Posted 6th August 2011)

Hey world!
Been back from Italy for a few days. I've been researching for my cosplay in those days.
It's taken about a month, but I've finally found the shoes. They're called Crocs Bistro and I found a site that sells them cheap! I'm getting the Chocolate Brown crocs which should look great with the rest of my cosplay.
Mum tells me she got some hair spray ages ago from Boots I could use (this information may have been good earlier...?).
Going into town on Sunday - hopefully to get the button! Then I've got to get the braces and finish my accent (to get into role).
Keep cosplayin'!

It's getting hard... (Posted 25th July 2011)

Hey world!
For about 2 weeks I've been trying to find suitable shoes and braces for Luke, yet I still can find them!
I may wear black school shoes if I can't find proper ones.
I remember a few years ago, crocs created these shoes which were crocs but without holes.
They don't sell them anymore but if anyone knows anywhere I can get them please leave a comment!
Same with the braces.
This doesn't mean I'm not working hard and I'm only using other members to find stuff for me - I'm still doing my best everyday!
I'm going to Italy for a week and a bit so don't expect any updates until August!
Keep cosplaying!

Small update. (Posted 19th July 2011)

Hey everyone,
Just a quick update.
I know where I'm getting the shoes now. Shoe Zone if you're wondering.
There are so few online braces shops. Classicwardrobe and Britishbraces seem to be the only two.
I will probably order from them but their products are either wrong or out of stock.
Anyone know a better place then the two I've listed? I would prefer online shops by a long way! I've started a thread in the forum - look for that! Or leave a comment.
Keep on cosplaying,

Nearly done! (Posted 12th July 2011)

Hey everyone,
The cosplay is almost complete! I got the shorts today at Tesco. They're kinda green-brown. However, with the rest of the cosplay, they look great!

Bad thing is I have to wear a belt. They're too big... ugh. I'll just hide it under my jumper (sssshhh! ;P).

The hair spray and button will be easy. The braces will be medium difficulty to get and the shoes will be... hard. Wow. Easy, medium, hard.

Leave a comment if you know where to get the braces or shorts!

See y'all!

Everything's changing... (Posted 9th July 2011)

Hey guys,
I've got almost everything I need now! I got the blue cap from Matalan today and some other products like the hair spray shouldn't be too hard to get.

However, why do companies have to be constantly changing their stock? Honestly, you find one thing you like and when you go to buy it, it's gone!

Oh well, I have until October to get everything ready.

Keep cosplaying,

Concentrate on top of the costume. (Posted 26th June 2011)

Hey everyone,
I've decided that I'm gonna be concentrating on the hat. For the bottom bit (waist down), the shorts are proving a challenge to get. I'm going to wait for the &quot;summer sales&quot; to get them. Besides, I have until October! So yeah, the cap is the main priority for now. Then the shoes shouldn't be too hard.

Got the bag! (Posted 25th June 2011)

I got the bag today! :D. Big thanks to 'ToroSonyCat' for telling me where to buy it - Primark!
I also looked for the wig and the green shorts. However, I came out empty-handed. IF ANYONE KNOWS WHERE TO GET THE WIG OR GREEN SHORTS PLEASE POST A COMMENT!!!

A trip to town! (Posted 16th June 2011)

Well, my blue jumper has turned up at ASDA, I just need to collect it. I shall do so on Saturday.
I have school exams (boo!) and during next week the cosplay shall be put on hold. On 25 June, it shall resume. On 26 June, me and a companion shall go to our town centre where there is a market. We will try to find a wig (if we don't find it there - eBay!) and the bag (Primark!).
Expect another update on 25 June.
Keep randomly tapping y'all screens for hint coins!

Jumper almost complete! (Posted 11th June 2011)

The title explains this journal entry well...

Yes, I have nearly finished the blue jumper section of this cosplay. Guess where from? ASDA! If anyone else is doing a Luke cosplay, go to the ASDA site now and type 'Blue Soft Touch Knitted Jumper' for a great, cheap (£4!) jumper.

I've almost nearly perfected my Luke Triton accent.

I have added 'red button' to my to-do list.


Back to Luke! (Posted 9th June 2011)

Hi everyone,

I haven't been updating for a while (school and everything) and as you could've guessed, I've stopped this cosplay.


No more. I'm back. I will be concentrating on this cosplay now.

I will try to wear this at MCM Expo October 2011.

I'll confirm when I've finished.


Caps and jumpers. (Posted 19th February 2011)

I've recently been looking at blue jumpers and blue baseball caps.
There's nothing amazing and I might start looking on the high street rather than online.

It has begun... (Posted 3rd February 2011)

I have two items off the to-do list so far and I'm aiming to get about three more by the end of the month.
The brown bag and wig may have to wait a while longer but right now I am determined to perfect the Luke Triton UK accent. (USA voice is different and not as good as UK!)
As I said in my previous post, a blue jumper may be coming along soon and possibly green shorts. Brown shoes will 100% be the last thing.

It's a Luke in progress! (Posted 1st February 2011)

Hello world!
For my first cosplay, I've decided to do my favourite gaming & anime character of all time... Luke Triton.
I've already got my white socks AND my white shirt! so that's two things off the list! Even though they aren't of high priority!
Next step will be a blue jumper!
