Costume Information

General
Time Taken : 5 days OTL;;;;

Description
Because this show is amazing.

And Masakaki is totally the Willy Wonka of the Financial District 8D Fell in love with him the minute I saw him♥

And after looking at this costume, I figured it's pretty simple to do from pre-bought clothes and such C: So ONE-WEEK-COSPLAY-CHALLENGE COMMENCES. WOOP.


WELL THIS WAS SOMEWHAT MORE STRESSFUL THAN EXPECTED :|
Mainly cause of the timing of other things - I've just come to the end of my Final Major Project so I had craploads of schoolwork to do OTL;; I really shouldn't have decided to do a random new cosplay BUT WHAT THE HELL PPFFTTT~~~

I already had the shirt, white tights and black blazer which was good C: I made a couple of Abakhan trips when I should have been mounting my FMP display to get fabric for my cape, cuffs, shoes, waistcoat, bow tie and top hat~ Also picked up buttons, a pair of white gloves and some hot pink socks (the ones I ordered from the interwebz didn't arrive ;A;'' So I'm having to make-do with slight neon-ness atm;; )

I painted on all the cuffs spots individually with fabric paint (2coats!!)~ It's the first time I've ever used fabric paint and I'm pretty impressed C: It gave a pretty crisp finish♥ The ribbon on the lapel was easy enough to sew on, though I was half asleep when I pinned it so ended up re-pinning it about 3 times because I kept thinking I'd done it wrong xDD I stitched over the button hole and added on pink buttons too~

I had a bit of a scare where I thought I wouldn't have enough fabric for the waistcoat ;A;'' Luckily, Masakaki's buttons are quite near the centre, so I just stitched the other ones to the side. May re-do this if I have the time >__>;; Drawing on the grid patten was nerve-wrecking Dx I kept thinking I was gonna go drawdrawdrawSLIP and mess it all up - LUCKILY I DIDN'T but was too nervy to try and do the back too xD;; So that's plain for now♥

The trousers were easy to turn up - £2.99 from a charity shop, with perfect pinstripes 8D For some reason I decided to hem the bow tie whilst it was on me, so it was very fiddly :| *idiot* I also have respect for those who can tie a bow tie without making a total hack-job out of it OTL;;

The shoes are made from an elf-shoe pattern with some Primarni pumps as a base C: I sewed one the day before I was due to leave my house, but for some reason I didn't sew the other;; I was then awake at 2:30, unable to sleep until I'd done the other one pffttt;; I ended up finishing them off friday night at 2am and finding the whole situation hilarious 8D They managed to last the whole day, inevitably falling apart (but luckily after my shoot xD;; )

Zee wig isn't accurate but I'm just glad I had a long enough hot-pink wig to pass 8D;; I didn't have chance to make my cane ;A; But hopefully I can make little improvements for the future, cause I know Ruth and Ireland wanna cosplay from this (as Q and Mikuni hnngggthey'llbesocute)~~

I wish I could have leered more, but having braces makes me concious about toothy smiles when in cosplay D': Bahh ohwell xD He was incredibly fun anyways. I loved jingling when I walked from the little bell I tied onto my belt-loop♥ And it made me insanely happeh when ever anyone recognised me 8DD Watching episode 7 in the Travel Lodge lobby with Ruth was glorious~

Bahhh now I need to go srsly discuss episode 8 on skype D8< DRAMAZ. HNNGGGG.
