Costume Information

Ballet shoes and I have had major crisis with our plans for midlands cosplay. I have officially fallen out with cosworx, they're the bane of my life! I've spent this past week power sewing after work and over weekend, neglected my boyfriend and had sleepless night stressing about it then with only 3 days to go cosworx tell me they're out of stock! Not only have I spent all this time labouring over a now non-existent cosplay, I have not time to get anything decent together! Strangely though, despite all the drama we might just manage Ain't Afraid to Die Kyo and Kaoru...

I have used a whole tin of hairspray on this experiment! I know the shirt and tie are the wrong colour. Please ignore the spot on my chin and my eyebrows... we will be shaving our eyebrows off together!!!! AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! I doubt we'll do the scars either... :(

I've always thought I'd make a better Die though, Ballet shoes and I will be doing another diiru cosplay soon though where I get to be Die! Squeeeee!

Update: Well, we pulled it off! It was amazingly fun to be in character and be a moody man! (actually very similar to the way I am but I have to force myself to be polite normally) And the eyebrows did come off! It was less scary than I anticipated and I might even keep it this way! :P
