Description
My first cosplaying experience.
It did turn out very good as I hoped! Those sleepless nights I've spent making things payed out very well with people taking many photos and me not being afraid that my costume would fall apart! :)

Basically everything in the costume is hand-made/modified (apart from my shoes).
The Item that took longest to make was probably the HAT. I was using FIMO polymer clay to make medallions and wooden beads. The hat itself was originally white, I bought from a WildWest shop (big thanks to them for being cooperative ^3^) and was most expecive thing i spent money for (£20)! Had to change the colour with spray paint, as well as colours of belts, and shoulder bag (which is actually stylized photo-camera hand bag!)

I also made the backless top and shorts out of my old pants and t-shirt :D.
LogPos was my old new-rock bracelet, bit of duck-tape and a Christmas tree ball :D
ANd that is pretty much it!
I'm looking forward for the new cosplay events! :D
