Costume Information

Cost : £55
Time Taken : Saturday 11am - Sunday 12pm

COSTUME COMPLETE! - I have no idea how I did it, but I did. The costume was made in 25 hours - with sleeping breaks. I am really happy with how it turned out and so was my sister, and I hope she enjoys wearing it.


This is a costume which I am going to be making for my sister this weekend as a commission. Measuring up and pattern drafting on Friday night, buying the fabric Saturday morning and then making the thing by Sunday afternoon.

I am really excited, mainly because I am going to be making a Kimono and I may even make myself one in the future for a Sakura cosplay.

Here's a question I'm planing on making a Shizuka cosplay and I was wondering how long you made the purple tie?
