Costume Information

Cost : Around £30-50
Time Taken : 2 hours

I bought the trainers, leggings and t-shirt, and then I modified the tshirt by cutting off the sleeves and sewing buttons onto it. I learnt how to sew on buttons! yay.
Then I also bought the wig, pink neckscarf and whistle. I tried to find a digivice but they were either very expensive or non-existent.
I had to use hairclips to clip back some of the side bits on the wig, to make it more boyish like, like Kari's hair is :D

What a cute cosplay!! I remember seeing you at the Expo ^w^

Aw, thanks for dropping by my profile sweety - I think I confused a lot of people at Expo haha, I did look very different from my usual style XD *bows* I'm flattered you like my work! I'll be cosplaying Abel again at the Grand Cosplay Ball, then at Minami and possibly once more at May Expo (he was so bloody expensive, I will get mileage out of him XD) so please say hi to me properly the next time we meet, and I'll doodle something for you, okay? ^w^

This is brilliant!
All the cosplays of Kari and TK I've seen so far are second season, so it is nice to see the original =)
As far as digivices go...I made one. I used fimo, and it looked surprisingly good...(it did take a fair amount of tiem to get right)
Unfortunatly I seem to have misplaced it at midlands XD

awww no! All that hard work...;A;
And thankyou! I wanted to see more series 1 love (if I see a series 1 Tai, I'd go nuts from fangirlism xD)
I've seen Fimo pop up in craft shops, so if I ever wear Kari again I'll try that :D thanks for the tips!

To-Do List

Wait for wig to come!HighComplete


Vwoot! (Posted 15th October 2008)

Well, I'm very nearly finished with the costume - piccies up soon :3
this seemed like a good one to make, though a lot of the things like the pink leggings and whistle and neckscarf were bought on Ebay, and the only thing that I modified was cut off the sleeves of the yellow t-shirt and sew on the buttons. Well, I'm still learning :) and considering how in May I comissioned my Tohru costume, I'm quite proud of myself.
