|Doing this as part of a Persona 4 group at Aya! Super excited!|
It's a simple enough costume to put together so it's a bit of a welcome break compared to my other Ayacon costumes this year!
So far bought a suitable red cable knit cardie, gots me some houndstooth and dyed it. Also brought some white fabric for the sailor fuku, all I need to do is actually make the costume now. :)

'Scuse the mess, cosplay is streeeessful. DX
Ok so managed to get a quick snapshot of the now complete skirt and cardy together! Just need to add the back collar to the white top and I'm done!
ARGH less then 2 weeks!! (Posted 6th August 2011)
For such a simple cosplay this one is turning out to be rather hellish! ; n ; I had issues with the white top, which meant a trip to John Lewis ( where fabric is double the price it should be D: ) to pick up some replacement stuffs to make a new top. Said top is coming out fine now thankfully, I has sleeves! I just need to add the black collar and sleeve cuffs :) also need to make that yellow scarf bit, I'm assuming it's just a bit square you fold a few times rights? :s
Skirt is coming along nicely literally just need to add a zip and button :) phew!
Another productive day! (Posted 29th July 2011)
I'm on such a time limit at the moment I'm having to spend every day on at least one costume! Today's costume was Yukiko~! Made the pleated part of the skirt only to realise, duh I need a band at the top! D: So that's currently dyed and being hung to dry on the washing line. Waiting for that I figured I might aswell make a start on the sailor fuku, which I couldn't find any images of so I used Chie's one as a model. (this is assuming they're the same!)
It wasn't until careful inspection that I noticed that the shirt's put together rather oddly seam wise, so with a bit of luck and guess work I've managed to piece together a top ( in need of sleeves ) The photo makes it look like there's 4 panels at the bottom but it's actually one 3, there's a crease in the middle that looks like a seam, it actually just needs ironing. :)
So once I've made some sleeves, I'll just have to add the black collar and a necktie and the top will be complete. Whew. :D
Hooray for indian ink! (Posted 29th July 2011)
Ok so I managed to pick up some houndstooth from fabric land not so long ago, white/black with the intention of attempting to dye it to grey/black. Then realised that it wasn't cotton so regular dye probably wouldnt take to it. So I'm hoping my make shift solution will be ok! Used some indian ink to stain the fabric, I know from many clothing mishap occasions as an artist this stuff DOES NOT COME OUT. D: I just hope it doesnt rain when I wear the skirt! I dont really want to test my theory! XD; Image is a before and after shot, yay! My fabric is no longer seizure enducing! (Cutting it out really made me feel ill XD;; )
