Costume Information

General
Cost : about 40 pounds?
Time Taken : 3 hours working on modifying the dress, 2 hours in total on the guitar

Description
I utterly love this character, unfortunately my level of costume making skill didn't quite allow me to make her traditional scooter riding costume. Instead, I decided to put together her nurse costume. She steals this outfit from the hospital in order to investigate Naota and his little.....problem.
I love The guitar, it turns the costume into something a bit different, even if you have no idea who the character is! However, its super heavy >_<

Easiest Task: Buying the dress shell....ebay. However, it is all modified including an extra panel across the front and round the bottom, before that it was frankly...indecent. Thinking of re-cycling it for nurse Joker if it hasn't got old by the time I get round to it.

Hardest Task: Panting the guitar, originaly it was black but a friend and I papier mached over it and painted it Blue and white.

I am currently in the throws of making her proper cossie.
