Description
I know it's a very simple cosplay and I'll probably end up buying everything for it, but I just love Ritsu and just need to cosplay her, I think in many ways I am a lot like her so I can't wait to do this~

Will most likely be for an evening at expo (maybe even the May MCM Expo 2011 if I get it done in time) or a meet~

Complete~

Zombie Ritsu and almost done! (Posted 10th March 2011)

So Ritsu is almost complete!
Drumsticks arrived today, all I need is the yellow headband and sort out her tie and then all done~
My zombie contact arrived today so I did another test, quite happy with it, I've got some fake blood but I haven't bothered using it this time but I will.
God I love this wig so much, expect some more Ritsu cosplays in the future, I've only sat in my room wearing her but it's already just fun being her so I can't wait to cosplay her. I've so far got 3 planned times for her. the zombie picnic in April, Saturday evening of MCM in May annd I'm wearing her to college for a presentation XD

Waiting on the postman and Zombie!Ritsu (Posted 6th March 2011)

I've bought her Blazer, skirt and wig and they are all in the post T_T I hate waiting for post, it's great when it arrives but the wait is horrible (I'm waiting for like 15items to arrive) I bought a shirt but am not happy with it (It doesn't fit even though I've got one exactly the same that does, and it's cut to be slutty rather then to be worn with a tie), so I'm gonna buy a mans shirt this week and the ribbon for her tie, and then thats pretty much everything done.
As well as wearing her for the evening at expo I shall be going to a zombie picnic with my twin(who is going as Zombie!Kakuzu) so Ritsu is going to be zombiefied, so expect a few pictures of Zombie!Ritsu before normal Ritsu XD

Wig and other stuff (Posted 25th February 2011)

Bought the wig just now, I had a lot of trouble finding one the right colour, all my usual ebayers I buy off had either too light or too dark wigs so I've ended up buying a pre-styled one, it was a bit more then I wanted to spend but at least I wont have to do much to it when it gets here and it's the perfect colour (in my opinion) so that's the wig done, I may buy the shirt tomorrow, I had a look in Primark today and their short sleeve shirts were more then x2 as much as a long sleeve one (Which makes absolutely no sense at all) so I may just buy another long sleeve and make it short and then I'll try and find a blazer.
I have some grey material that -may- do for the skirt however I don't know how well I'll do at making it but we'll see maybe I'll give it a go XD
