|Time Taken :||A very long time|
|Worn at Manchester MCM Expo 2011 & Kitacon 2012|
My second costume that I have completely made from scratch, I love Tira and I love this costume :) I'm proud of it though it is far from perfect. The shoes, hat, and sleeves were wonky, and everything is a bit messy with this costume but I think it works with Tira's personality anyway lol.

2 days to go (Posted 28th July 2011)
And again I have left most of it until last minute lol. I have spent hours this week working on this damn thing, im about 90% done? I was meant to upload pictures of each part of the costume when it was finished but ive only just completed most of it, here is a photo of the explosion of Tira cosplay parts on my bed haha.
Bits and Pieces (Posted 14th July 2011)
Here are some parts of the jewellery, like the silver charm and spikes for her tail thing, and some skulls for the collar and gold bits for the jester hat (All made with wire, clay, paint and glue). They are kind of messy but I like them. Also shows the ribbon I've got for the skirt and stocking trim, I will paint part of it darker as Tira seems to have 2 tones of pink ribbon on her outfit. Shoes and stockings nearly done, will post progess this week maybe. This costume is taking ages and I only have a couple of weeks until expo (is lazy) >.<
Gauntlet Progress (Posted 24th June 2011)
These have taken a long time, but thats because I started them a long time ago and only work on them for like an hour a week or something lol. The picture shows 1. After I bent the foam into shape, 2. The raised design has been added and 3. The paint job is finished and most parts are glued to the gloves. All I need to do is add the green staps and the purple ribbon (which I lost so have to buy more T_T) and add a few thick pink stitches to the underside of the glove.
slowly coming along (Posted 19th June 2011)
Made a start on the boots (pain in the ass), the charm and spikes for the tail thing, and styling the wig. The gauntlets are nearly finished, just waiting for some leather gloves to arrive in the post then I can glue it all together. The skulls for the hat and collar I am going to make out of clay, as I can't seem to find any small plastic ones to buy from anywhere D: Overall, I have so much to do on this costume as it has lots of little details, I hope I can pull it off. (oh, and heres the picture I was meant to upload to my last journal entry >.<)
Made a start (Posted 5th June 2011)
Basically started this a while ago but stopped to work on my May expo cosplays, but now this is my priority costume as it needs to be completed in 2 months for the first Manchester expo. I drew out all of the different components of the costume and wrote down how I was going to make them and what material to use etc, will start doing this before any costume I make as its proving to be really useful lol.
