|Weee Chihiro! I've always loved spirited away and I was finally persuaded into this when my friend promised he would cosplay Haku alongside me! Decided to go for the pink outfit as...every year I MUST cosplay at least one pink outfit!! And...it's way cuter. O_~|
I was SO happy with the material I found for this. Was looking for a very strange shade of pink and I managed to find it - thank goodness for leicester market and the very patient market stall owner!! XD
This was actually the first costume I made without a pattern! There were advantages and disadvantages to this...but it's all a learning process! ^_^ The trousers were hellish and...quite badly made - but the top covers up most of them so no worries!! XDD
The shoes were bought from ebay and painted yellow with a combination of acrylic and fabric paint which worked quite well...but because I didn't have time to put primer or anything else on the paint began to crack towards the end of the day! Must fix that next time!!
The wig was commissioned from Lulu Rose and is possibly the cutest wig I have ever owned. XD
I really enjoyed wearing this costume. It's SUPER comfortable even though I have to bind for it...Also is fun to be a little girl for a day. :p Got alot of 'aaaaw's' which made me giggle. XDDD
