Costume Information

General
Time Taken : 1 hour

Description
Worn on Sunday 29th May at MCM London Expo. Chi is MoonBootsPotter1012.

We had our photo taken 62 times (that we counted, yeah, we are cool ;D) and would like to find any photos taken!!! Please comment if you have a photo of us!

The costume consists of my black dress, black socks, black converse (my friend wore very high heels to make us the same height), black buckle gloves, black sleeves created by moonbootspotter1012 from one of my old t-shirts and worn under the gloves, black shorts with a lace jacket attached to act as the flowing part behind the dress and ears.

The ears are made from foam then attached to a headband with a small amount of lace (donated by moonbootspotter1012 :D) over the top to hide the headband itself.

I wore clip on hair extensions, but really they didn't make my hair much longer than it already is.

For the hair ties, I was having a lot of trouble getting them to stick, so I ending up attaching them to my hair using carpet tape (which I then had to cut out afterwards!)

you both look quite elegant. The black rabit seems got confused with such a soft doll.

London MCM Expo 2011 (Posted 2nd June 2011)

I wore this for Sunday Expo.

My alarm clock failed to go off <_< So we were up 1 1/2 hours late but we still managed to get to Expo in time. The costume was pretty simple. My friend created the black arm sleves and I wore them under some black gloves with buckles on. Then I just wore a plain black dress, black socks and black converse (This helped to make me and my friend the same size, she was wearing HUGE high heels!) Under my dress I wore black shorts (as it is quite short) and we cliped a lace jacket to these to act as the flowy bit at the back of the dress.

I wore clip on hair extensions, but really they didn't make my hair much longer than it already is. The ears were stuck onto a head band so they were very easy to wear. For the hair ties, I was having a lot of trouble getting them to stick, so I ending up attaching them to my hair using carpet tape. Not a good idea! I ended up having to cut some of my hair out afterwards.

I put on some black eyeliner and mascara to make my eyes stand out!

It was a lot of fun having a final look around, watching the Futurama panel, winning free pocky and getting our photo taken 62 times! (We counted, we are so cool ;) If you have any photos of us please tell me!)

Ears (Posted 26th May 2011)

These are the ears I made for Freya. I took the pattern from this site ---> http://ai25cosplay.tripod.com/id3.html and it works really well.

I bought some pink and white foam to create it and stuck it together using carpet tape. It came unstuck occasionally over the weekend, probably due to the heat in our hotel room, but they stayed together perfectly well on the day.

Photo to come soooon :)
