Costume Information

I love this anime, and I love Sho! =3

Shall hopefully be done with Harajuku-Guy as my the future! >w<

I'm part of a super-awesome MPD group at Ame, and I am SO EXCITED for it!!

I had a great time with the MPD group! You guys are all amazing, I'm honored to have cosplayed with you ;w;

Next time I cosplay Sho, I'm gonna actually find my black laces so the yellow doesn't creep through again! Or get better shoes all together. AND DAT SWEATERVEST.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with how this cosplay came together~! I thought the clothes would be a bit uncomfortable, but I lasted hours in them and it was actually quite nice to wear! =D

Can't wait to see this! I've not got a yellow vest either as I couldn't find a good one- so difficult to find!

To-Do List

JacketHighIn Progress
sweater vestMediumPlanned


Whoop! (Posted 14th August 2012)

Managed to sew the buttons on Friday night at Ame! xD At like...11:30pm xP Because I thought I forgot them then gave up looking for them then found them an hour later. YAY! So Sho is most definitely completed~ Hopefully if/when I rewear him though I'll be able to get the sweater vest =3

Success! (Posted 4th August 2012)

I got mah jacket >D I hope it fits okay with the white shirt, it's not my size but it worked when I tried it on! It looks a biiit girly and I might need to change the buttons, but beggars can't be choosers! I'm getting the details on asap when I get home.

Oh the waiting (Posted 2nd August 2012)

I had a huge kerfuffle with getting the trousers, but I've finally gotten them! I haven't seen them and I pray to everything they fit. They fit my mom, so I should be safe~ And I still don't ave a damn blazer =[ Meant to go to a charity store soon, so that should be sorted momentarily. Gotta pester my dad like NUTS though, he tends to forget things;; Also, unless by some miracle I find one in the charity shop, I shall be yellow's so damn hard to find the right color. Sho is all proper and keeps his jacket buttoned anyway, so it shouldn't be a big deal. I hope.
THIS BEST BE DONE SOON! My bias is STILL waiting. I even brought it with me to the US.

I got my wig in the mail last night, it's an alright wig! It has this annoying sticky-up bit though but I'll fix that. The trousers that I ordered over a week ago are taking their sweet time because the eBay seller can't figure out how to work a Brit military address for some reason, so that's veeeeeeery annoying. Having a hell of a time in a bad way looking for a damn jacket xD My mom gave me a white one I can dye, but hopefully I find something in the states for cheap~ THEN I CAN ACTUALLY SEW SOMETHING FOR THIS! My bias is waiting =|

Startin' to make tracks here now (Posted 3rd July 2012)

Just ordered my wig! It's not the riiiiight shade exactly for Sho, but since I'm going to be using it for Kaito as well I had to deal with it. I've seen many Sho cosplayers use this shade anyhow, so I'm not too bothered~
Aaaaand have my eye on various bits and pieces of the uniform on eBay! =3 I think I've found some good trousers and pretty much just gotta get them, a blazer and the sweater vest and then edit! I hooope I can get everything before I leave for the states, but we'll see!
