Costume Information

I really really like this song, and Rin's version is just so awesome!
Oh, and megaphones are cool.
Like with MAGNET and Dolls, I've kinda come up with my own design, based on what others have done. Mostly because I wanted to add a hat.
Will upload my design once I've finished the picture I've drawn of it ^^

Decided to do this for Ayacon. Was meant to be doing a K-On! group with some friends but due to a change of plan, I'll make this instead c:

Wearing this is really fun, but the megaphone is a bit of a fail XD Not only do the logos keep peeling, I forgot to put batteries in it before painting. Rookie mistake!

This megaphone is broken (Posted 14th August 2011)

I have no idea if it is, I havent tried using it o.o
Also ignore the carboard, it was halping support the megaphone stand uring painting.
It just needs a coat of clear paint to be uberfinito 8D

Close to finishing (Posted 6th August 2011)

Gave the megaphone another coat of paint today: it's looking good IMHO ^^
Finally bought a base shirt today and started editing it. This should be done within the next few days ^^ Well, depending on how long the megaphone takes anyway~

Edits to the design (Posted 3rd August 2011)

Not sure what to do about the shirt as I can't find one I want to use as a base, OR find a pattern I like/can use...
Also I'm ditching the hat badge. I like the hat without it and I keep failing at making this damn badge so I'm going to leave it for now. The socks will now be tights, as I dont like wearing overknee socks that much xD
Spraypainting the megaphone seems to be going okay, but it's a slow slow process

Progress (Posted 2nd August 2011)

Today I remade the badge (I broke the last one somehow) though I'm not happy with it. I may try again tomorrow....
I made a necktie, and the thing that goes around the shirt (sewing more triangles D: NO MORE NO MOREEEEEEEEEEEE) and added some gold braiding to match the hat.
Just have to make/find a shirt and finish painting the megaphone (all the yellow is done!)

Hat (Posted 1st August 2011)

Still needs the badge but is otherwise done 8D

Muchos progress (Posted 22nd June 2011)

The belts, hat and skirt are all done, though I need to repaint the hat badge. A megaphone has been bought, and I may have a shirt to edit.

Let's go! (Posted 22nd April 2011)

Decided to put this into 'in progress', as I started making the belt today, and bought an awesome hat (which has been referred to as a Hard Gay hat and a Full Monty hat... this is going well :/)
