Description
Many many years ago, I was a beginner cosplayer. And was very into Soul Eater. And was also told I should cosplay Crona from Soul Eater, because I was a massive spazz back then.
So we spent many a week finding the right materials etc., but this was my first time even trying to style a wig. A neon pink wig my parents bought from a joke shop. It turned out absolutely [expletive]. I also did not like wearing no glasses, so I went with them.
Basically, my first cosplay ever was [several expletives]. Bluh.
But I felt the need to redo this. I ordered another wig, fixed my old costume, and wore it again to the London MCM Expo in October, 2010. c:
This is what I will show.
*Wig: first one disaster. Threw away. Second one the most beautiful thing I ever crafted... which my mother left a pile of stuff on, and ruined. Threw away. :I
*Collar: undershirt from Uniqlo with a turtleneck collar that I sewed buttons onto.
*Dress: from a charity shop. It... it looks like it was used by a sassy nun in a previous life.
*Cuffs on arms: sheets of fabric with facing inside to make them stand out. Three big buttons sewed on, with lines stuck on.
*Cuffs on ankles: more sheets of fabric sewed around the back and with buttons drawn on D:
*Boots: from Next. They are all fleecy and warm and I wear them a lot c: yay for cosplay providing nice clothes outside of cons!

Ah, I debate whether I should get a new wig and redo Crona with my newfound cosplay experience. But I'm not as into Soul Eater anymore so I don't know how much of a waste it would be ; A;
