Description
Although I'll admit I dont completely understand the whole Vocaloid/UTAU thing, Ruko was the first character design I saw and was like "Wooow I wanna cosplay that!!" XD

So this is my random summer project. Yaaay!

The reference pictures I have all vary slightly, so that gives me some leeway in terms of accuracy and the limitations of my noob skillz XD

i have a sugestion for the wig :), insted of triming it again, why not backcomb the hair falls a bit? in some photos ruko's hair is alot fluffier than most hair would be. :)

All-Night Blitz (Posted 15th March 2012)

ITS ABOUT TIME RUKO GOT FINISHED. And its Minami in 2 days so I figured why not have it ready for then? Took me about 5 hours to make the arm-warmers and jacket from scratch... its a bit rushed but Im quite pleased!

Ponytails Trimmed (Posted 16th July 2011)

Cut the two ponytail pieces and the blue extension shorter today. First time ever trimming a wig... scaaary... Theyre still a bit too long, might have to re-trim later, but its a good first attempt.

Tie Made (Posted 15th July 2011)

Spent today making the necktie from scratch... A bit tricky but really pleased with how it turned out!! Looks all proper-like XD
(pattern for the tie was from ThreadBanger)

Jacket Material Bought (Posted 30th June 2011)

Went out and got the materials for the blue jacket (dark blue with purpley-maroony lining) and the armwarmers (dark blue with light blue cuffs). I can soon make a start on construction! Huzzah!!

Wig Pieces Ordered (Posted 17th June 2011)

Im gonna be using the short black wig used for Nana as the base for this one, and Ive just ordered a pair of black clip-on ponytails and a small blue extension... Just need to wait for them all to arrive and thats the wig sorted. Excellent xD
