This is the first costume I've made completely from scratch and although it's not perfect I am really proud of it! I've learnt from this that that shiny material is a BITCH to work with and I probably wont do it again(Although I have already bought it for Stocking and for Rin's coat >.<') to be warn on the Saturday of MCM Expo May 2011 hopefully I'll get some nice photo's while I'm there ^_^
I love Ritsu and K-On! and Fuwa Fuwa Time is my favourite song by them (so far at least I'm only half way through season 2) and I just loved their outfits for the first performance they did of Fuwa Fuwa Time (It was at the end of Season 1)
Was planning on doing this for the evening of October Expo but now that I'm going to Hyper Japan I've decided to do it for that ^_^
And now its being bumped forward to May MCM

Kimono Progress! + A problem (Posted 25th April 2011)
It's only pinned here and needs some adjustments still (the back is like 10inches longer then the front because of where I drew the pattern on the fabric XD) and as you can see it doesn't cover the petticoat however, after having a huge hissy fit about it I've figured out how to fix that.
The Obi is also only held together by me. I'm tempted to remake this as even though I wanted it to be stiff and stand out, I don't like the foam any more, it makes me look even chunkier. So yeah, may be re-doing it.
I've never done anything like this before and didn't have a pattern to use so despite the petticoat malfunction I'm still pretty happy with it and will be fixing that bit soon~
