|EDIT 20/6/13: I think I've worn Chie the most out of all my cosplays! Chie was debuted at October Expo 2011, and I wore her at Kitacon 4 2012, Japan Expo 2012 and now May Expo 2013! XD She's my go to cosplay for comfort and something simple to wear. Also since I first made her, I'm improved the shoes by sewing on the crosses instead of painting them on XD|
A simple cosplay to make and wear! For the Persona 4 group Sunday morning before I change into Stiltzy!

Improved shoes (Posted 20th June 2013)
So originally the crosses were painted on the shoes, and this was annoying because they kept coming off obviously from scuffs. So before May Expo 2013 I ended up saying "sod it" and destroyed my fingers by sewing the crosses on with white embroidery thread and a really strong needle XDD
I'm glad I did though because they look tons better!
Completed! (Posted 16th October 2011)
Chie is now officially completed :) I cannot wait to wear her! It shall be epic stuff!
I finished off the fog glasses, and I bought some black leggings from Primark that I chopped up into shorts, they're a good length now :)
Skirt finished (Posted 12th October 2011)
HOORAAAY I set myself a goal of one day to make the skirt...and I managed it |D
It helped that I'd made a pleated skirt before, only once before though, but it still helped :) I had to make two sections in the end, plus I'd made the pleats too big on my first try and had to unpick and start again, but it all worked out fine in the end 8D I'm getting good at sewing in zips too, hehehe.
Much love to CrystalNeko for obtaining and dying the fabric for me :) IT FRAYS SO HORRIBLY AARGH thank god for lint rollers...
JACKET FINISHED! (Posted 8th October 2011)
PRAISE THE LORD!!! *cries with joy*
Longest bit of hand sewing applique...EVER.
Now I can turn my attention to the skirt, and to get around to painting the glasses!
Moar jacket (Posted 5th October 2011)
I sewed the second sleeve of the jacket! Took forever and it looks wonky but OH WELL. it is done now. I've gone so far as pinning the greeny bits and will sew them on next chance I get |D
Jacket progress (Posted 20th September 2011)
I've sewn on the yellow strips onto one of the sleeves, yet to start the second sleeve (need to stop putting it off and actually do it)
It took me 2 days of on and off work to sew them on, because the sleeve was already closed off due to it being a readymade jacket I had to handsew them on rather than use the machine. Also, the base jacket was stretchy and so some bits look awkward, especially the gap in the middle.
I realised the strips are too big but I really don't want to unpick it and start all over again, it looks fine and it's not like my whole arm is going to be yellow =__=;
Shoes (Posted 20th September 2011)
The shoes are standard black shoes I got from shoezone for just over a tenner, and then I added the crosses with white acrylic, using a chopstick XDD;;
It'll probably chip off a bit. Plus they are a bit messy, should've used a smaller brush but I couldn't find anything (or I couldn't be bothered, take your pick :P)
Jacket and other progress (Posted 14th September 2011)
I'm all ready to mod the green jacket, got some good material to add onto it!
Also need to get the badges sorted. I found somewhere that can do them for me, just need to sort out the images for it!
Also bought the wig yesterday so that should arrive soon! I'll need to trim it as it's a little long at the sides.
Got some nice shoes that I'll add the white crosses too.
