Description
*This costume is now retired*


I will be honest that the only reason I decided to cosplay from this series is because I thought the school uniform was really pretty... I did watch all 12 epsiodes of the anime but the plot was all over the place and too ecchi for my personal taste. I originally was going to cosplay Asuka Watarai but I didn't like my wig and as I don't feel much for/relate to the characters I might as well just be an original student.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~Please see my journals for more details on the construction of this costume as well as progress photos~


The uniform was bought and some slight adjustments were made.

I wore a small petticoat to help the skirt stick/poof out more.

I used my own hair and boots I already owned.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I first wore this costume to KitaCon IV (2012) and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. No one really commented on it other than to say it was cute but I'm not bothered by that as I'm only an original character anyway and it seems the anime isn't well known or popular. I had a photo shoot with PaperTiger (making use of the hotel's piano in the process) and also did some spinning around outside for a cosplay video being made by Nert. Overall this is a nice casual cosplay to relax in.

Worn for the second and last time to AmeCon 2012 with some slight variations to the outfit.

Ahaha! I can't believe it! I thought about making the cosplay too, purely because it's pretty, and I've never seen anything to do with this anime/manga/whateveritis. That's hilarious.. xDD Anyway, I reallyreally can't wait to see this! :DDD

Journal

Character variation (Posted 17th August 2012)

For AmeCon I decided I wanted to change the character's look slightly so I wore a purple wig, glasses and knee-high socks with school shoes instead of boots.

Other details (Posted 12th April 2012)

I decided to wear black tights and my own black, knee high lace-up boots with this. One of the students, Asuka Watarai, wears tights and boots in the anime so it fits in with the style. I used my own hair and put it into bunches tied with pink ribbon that matched the uniform. I also wore a small black petticoat underneath the skirt to help it look more fuller and "poofy".

Uniform adjustments (Posted 9th April 2012)

The snap fasteners on the collar kept popping open so I replaced them with hooks and eyes. However this make the fabric gape and the hooks were visible =( It was suggested that I use velcro instead which I cut into thin strips and used a mix of hand-sewing and my machine to attach. I looks a lot better now as well as staying in place.

Uniform (Posted 25th November 2011)

Saw this in the Bring & Buy at FushiCon, I have admired the uniform for some time on a few websites and once I had tried it on the staff said I had to buy it as no-one else had managed to fit into it all weekend lol It was only £15.00 and new with tags still attached so very hard to say no to. I was a little short on cash so Bento Dan and Quinzel got it for me between them (although I think Dan just wanted to guarantee he could get photos of me in it lol).

It's made by Bodyline. I need to make a few adjustments like changing the snap fasteners for hook & eyes as they won't stay closed but other that that it's really nicely made.
