|Cost :||About £20 o3o CHEEP??|
|Time Taken :||A few hours :'D|
|K-ON!! SO MUCH MOE. I got totally addicted to watching this during lunchtime when I was supposed to be doing schoolwork ;D (So now I always associate K-On with food o-o But I think this is good♥) Just mindless cute with adorable music xD|
Mugi is obviously one of the coolest. I mean. She brings the tea! I'm a waitress - obviously I felt a connection there. I also have a thing with cosplaying rich characters (especially rich characters who are obsessed with commoner paraphernalia *coughtamakicough*) so Mugi it was!
It was Pip and Tash who got me into it originally, and we've planned to do a group (need a shoot though D8). Tash will be our moe moe mio and Pip either Yui or Azunyan xD She's adorable as either so >3<
Concerning this cosplay, it was REALLY CHEEP so I love it :'DD I got the shoes off ebay, and zee wig obviously. I was worried about it being too pale (like a previous wig I bought), but luckily it's a gorgeous shade of golden blonde C: I already had the jacket - it was just really long (like, knee length xD;; ), so I cut it to waist length, hemmed it, and cut off the buttons. (The left over piece has magically transformed into a cute skirt 8D) I bought the top from Primarni, and added the heart on with transfer paper C:
The skirt was a learning experience xD;; I used this tutorial ~ http://taeliac.deviantart.com/art/Tutorial-Circle-Skirts-90497598 which was an absolute life-saver♥♥ Luckily, I already had a load of white fabric left over from a previous project, so I didn't have to buy more C: It took me a while to figure out the measurements properly, because I suck balls at maths OTL;; But the sewing part was simple at least :'D And I found gathering to be a fun and relaxing experience *3* The hat was bought from my local market, then ripped to pieces and built back onto with leftover fabric to make it big and poofy like the one she has in the ending theme C: Think I may have made the band a bit too big, so I'm-a have to go back and alter this...
Loling around Bham in this cosplay was much fun xD Especially with my Mio and Azunyan~♥ I would have liked to have taken a few more pictures, but I think this will be at some other time when everyone's cosplays are finished properly C:
