Costume Information

This character was sort of "assigned" to me for an epic group with my friends! I hadn't watched it yet so I started watching it yesterday and I'm already half way through! It's amazing! And I love Melissa so am really happy to have been chosen to be her as I probably would have picked her anyway xD the hair scares me a little though! And I can't decided if its dark blue or black with a blue tint @_@

Either way!

Here's the group!

Kaname Chidori - J-Po
Sousuke Sagara - Nanahara
Kurz Weber - Numta3
Melissa Mao - Me!
Kyoko Takiwa - Fusionrose

- Moving into in progress as this is for Kitacon IV on the Friday night!

- I'm moving this into completed as I'm pretty sure everything is okay for this cosplay. The only thing I havent done is added the yellow bits to the shoulders of the jacket but as this is an evening cosplay I'm not going to bother. I dont have the right stuff for it either XD So I'm marking this as completed and hoping for the best!

I like 1 as well but I think it's the same style as my Julia/babette wig which would mean it's too short at the front ><

mimicking phee's comment the wig is a pretty colour XD
also you dont have to make her hair so short make it a style to suit you. if you have a nice hair dresser you can go in an ask them to cut it for you while you wear it

Shopping List

Dog Tag£5.64Bought
Military Shirt£8.25Bought
Military Trousers£11.45Bought


Wig Cut (Posted 14th March 2012)

The wig was cut around two weeks ago by my sister's friend :D She's a hairdresser and was round our house at the time so I kind of pounced on her xD Finally got a couple of shots with it. The lighting makes it look a bit lighter than it is but it's not as dark as the wig's "studio" photo. This wont be the make up I wear for her either I was just too lazy to do anymore than I already had on xD

Painted Gun (Posted 9th March 2012)

Painted and weathered by the amazing Phee :D the orange tip was kept so it kept in with Kitacon's weapon regulations ^^

Dog Tags!! :D (Posted 21st February 2012)

I got my Dog Tags today :D I love them loads! I had to make up Melissa's ID number because I couldnt find hers ANYWHERE. I thought she mentioned it in an episode but I hunted and couldnt find it =/ so I know I've got it wrong. Just dont tell me the right one if you know it xD

WIP (Posted 7th December 2011)

Will be finding a way to tighten the trousers D: mens trousers are baggy! Will be getting a different top as I find the black one waaaay too short and the wrong shape! But apart from that I'm pretty happy. :D The jacket and top don't match exactly but me numta3 and nanahara have all got the same ones so we'll match each other XD and also the boots I was wearing were temp to show off the outfit =] also also excuse the weird lining that makes me look like I have male genitals o.O
