@CrystalNeko aww thank you honey <3 I might end up wearing her another day if something goes wrong! And I think considering the amount of outfits she has she's going to become a pretty frequent cosplay for me - so she'll turn up again! 8D

Third wig! (Posted 3rd June 2011)

Oh god I really am Miwako mad :'D
This is a wig I forgot I had so yeah... 3rd for Miwako :'D Ohhh the outfit possibilities~!

... and wow, I actually look like I have a figure in these pictures *-*

TA-DAA (Posted 26th May 2011)

So, my first Miwako outfit is now complete! (Image in gallery)
I feel I need a necklace and or something on my wrists. But I'm afraid this'll become happy berry overkill! I have a whole day of sitting around doing nothing but waiting for expo to come along tomorrow, so I might make a couple more bits of jewelry..

Shoes~! (Posted 24th May 2011)

I wasnt really fussed about doing the shoes, but found some plain white heels for £3 today so thought "ehh, why not?"
I've painted them pink and added some happy berrys to the toe.
I want to add some lace detail / a bit of white paint detail to the shoes, to make them a bit more individual and interesting - but we'll see~!

Contacts (Posted 23rd May 2011)

Arghh why do I pull such silly shocked faces?!

Anyway, bought the contacts today. Sadly, they still show a bit of my natural color near the center but it's better than being all green.
Miwako is pretty much done now 8D

Backpack (Posted 22nd May 2011)

Re-made the backpack today as I'm now wearing Miwako on the Sunday and the previous attempt wasn't good enough.
It's 100% hand sewn ._.
This one actually works as a backpack, thank god!
I'm actually so happy with it! Just need to attach the straps properly and it's done!

To do now: Buy contacts - doing that tomorrow
Random jewelry bits - ehh sometime over the next week
New shoes? Not a priority

8DD (Posted 20th May 2011)

Not really relevant to the costume, but I wore the wig out today and got given free cupcakes at the cupcake stall because of my hair 8D
Excuse me while I go celebrate my luck with yummy cupcakes!

Second wig! (Posted 20th May 2011)

I bought this to use as extensions to the pigtails, but to be honest I don't think it really needs them soo I have a second wig to do another outfit with 8D Just needs a fringe~!
(Outfit in picture not relevant, that's just what I wore to college xD)

Backpack (Posted 11th May 2011)

Better image of the backpack. As you can see, the wings and green bit came out weirdly shaped, so needs to be redone eventually

Happy Berry backpack (Posted 11th May 2011)

Made the backpack today~! It's not perfect, but I';m pretty happy with it as a first draft :)
I am tempted to just stitch the backpack to my dress on the day to avoid the horrible straps - we'll see~!

Wig (Posted 9th May 2011)

Soooo the wig arrived today, as I said I want to add extensions to it to make the pigtails a bit bigger but to be honest I don't think it matters too much if they don't arrive in time.
Not sure if I'll bother making a whole outfit - I might just wear my pink lolita dress.
I'll make the backpack though <3
