|Here's a confession: I cannot sew. I can do the cutting, the sticking, everything else, but sewing? I never got those all those hems straight, my mum did!|
These costumes worn by myself and my best friend Jo were a sort of present to both of us. We met while doing our first ever costumes when we were both 16 and both went on to win our first cosplay competition. Jo has suffered bad health for a while and had to bow out of a lot of conventions, but decided she was up to attending this particular Minami five years on from when we met.
I had moved into my own place by this point and couldn't rely on mum to help me out, so I comissioned the costumes from a shop called Cosaru which is very good (and quite expensive). We had both wanted to cosplay these characters for a long time - not because we are massive fans of the game, but because we both liked the uniforms and had wanted to cosplay as a 'pair' since we met.
I have actually seen the anime and know most of the game endings off by heart as another friend is a HARDCORE fan, so I didn't go into this totally blind and did manage to cosplay the character I would have chosen (although thinking about it that wouldn't have been the best ending for her, since the guy is a Grade A bumhole!)
This turned into a bit of an essay but there we go, it was an important milestone in my cosplaying career!
