I believe makeup is just as important as the rest of the costume - Here's my makeup test for Ronald!

Little Bag! (Posted 27th September 2011)  

Impressed and full of excitement~ xD ;;

It looks like Ronny's Glasses~! (Posted 27th September 2011)  

I'm impressed by how it was packed, okay!? XD

BOX! (Posted 27th September 2011)  

I think I know what this has inside! OuO

Glasses (Posted 23rd September 2011)  

With Scotty's help, I managed to win the pair of glasses I want for Ronald. That's the last major part of this cosplay, after that it's just little bits that will make it look nicer.

Wig Progress - Day 1 #1 (Posted 30th July 2011)  

How the wig looked after 2 hours of styling today.

Urgh... (Posted 29th July 2011)  

I tried to style the wig last night, but due to unforseen circumstances I couldn't style it last night, as planned. I will get around to it whenever I can.

Wig Arrived! (Posted 27th July 2011)  

Wig's arrived, now I need to wash and style it and it's done!

I just need the glasses, tie, wristwatch, belt and shoes.
Doubt the shoes are happening this year, but I have backups so that doesn't matter!

I'd also like to, one day, get contact lenses. ^w^ Again, not happening this year... lol. I think I'd make the lawnmower before I think of contacts. XD

Wig - Ordered (Posted 15th July 2011)  

I just ordered the wig, now all I can do is sit back and wait for it to arrive. :) I hope it looks all right, I'm really anxious it'll look horrible or will be a huge bitch to style. >.< ;;

Hello Ronald Knox! :) (Posted 22nd June 2011)  

I used to cosplay William. A couple of friends asked me to, so I did him for a while. I always had a nigging feeling that I didn't do William justice, I felt uncomfortable and I couldn't take cosplaying William entirely serious for this reason.

I didn't want to give up William because I had so much fun with my friends when cosplaying from Black Butler, I felt like I'd be throwing that all away in quitting William and I didn't want to do that... I'd also feel guilty.

I then discovered Ronald Knox, I found a character I adored and I instantly got that 'I will cosplay this man!' feeling! I feel like I have a chance to do Ronald some justice, and I'm really willing to try at him! Whilst I cosplayed William for my friends, I cosplay Ronald for myself and my friends. :) So it feels a lot better to be him!
I retired William to work on getting Ronald done, stuff I have so far:

☑ White Shirt (£12.00; ASDA);
☑ Black Blazer & Trousers (£7.50; Charity Shop);
☑ Black Waistcoat (£9.00; Primark);
☑ Black gloves (£6.99; Claire's Accessories).

I still need a lot, but I'll post my progress on here! I hope to get Ronald completely done by August. :)
