This went down surpisingly well I think in the end, a lot people actually recognised us and we found others to take photos with :)
I didn't finish making the jacket until the morning we were wearing the costume oops... But I enjoyed wearing it and I know where I need to improve for next time!
Re-wore this with slight differences (better jacket, trousers, no sword holder or tail though :( ) at Kitacon 2012 for the masquerade. I will certainly improve this some more and wear it again later this year I hope. It's one of only a few cosplays that I actually feel enough love/motivation to improve and wear again ^^

He only really is ever seen in these red boots on the cover of the manga volume 1 and ever so occasionally in the manga. He mainly wears black boots which is what I wore with my uniform but I'm going to totally replicate to the best of my ability this version for Fushicon as it's a bit more distinctive!
Ears! (Posted 8th July 2011)
My ears and tie arrived today so I tried them out and styled the wig too. I was amazed to see I do actually look like him a bit o___o; So I'm feeling more confident about this! Now to find a good blazer, make the tail and find stuff for the sword case!
