|Erika is awesome. She has a lot of similar character traits to me which is probably why I like her so much, and why I decided to cosplay her ( lol third DRRR costume so far. There are just too many that I like, I want to cosplay them all XD)|
I've convinced my sister to cosplay as Dotachin when I do this, as she is very similar in personality to him, and she doesn't mind it either.
now all we need is a Saburo Togusa and a Walker Yumasaki and our group is complete
Not sure yet when these will be worn, probably just randomly sometime for parties and such.
updatyness (Posted 23rd November 2011)
I bought a pattern form the internet from a site that sells retro patterns. I had some leftover material from my Kenren costume, so I decided to make my Erika dress from it. The dress fits perfectly apart from when I attached the studs to keep the dress shut, I did them wrong and now anytime I bend down, or put my bag on my shoulder the dress unbuttons. I will have to fix it at some point in the future, but for now I have no spare time. It's really comfy to wear. I may still buy a wig for this in the future since my hair went a bit scraggily when I wore it.
Got a hat (Posted 3rd September 2011)
got my hat from Primark. cost me all of £3. It's not perfect as it has a bizzare criss cross type patterned stitching on it, but you won't really notice it on photos. The hat should be big enough to be able to wear a wig aswell as have the hat, but at the same time, I might not need a wig a in the manga she has black hair. It depends on how my hair is at the time I guess.
