Costume Information

For London MCM Expo May 2012.

*Hat: Bought from a local party shop. I think the brand was Leg Avenue.
*Hair: Own hair because I didn't want to alter one of my own wigs. Dyed black and gelled. Looks pretty decent.
*Glasses: I am a short-sighted lazy.
*Jacket: Ordered from CosplayFU. Something I disagree with slightly [I like to home make cosplays] but in this case it was going to be very difficult making a jacket, and impossible to order the real thing elsewhere.
*Trousers: They came with the jacket so hooray there.
*Shoes: Shined black school shoes.
*White gloves: Leg Avenue brand, bought and ironed transfer prints onto.

@Manjou: Yep, it's happening! :3
I've seen a few cosplays on Tumblr, but they mostly appear to be in Japan.
I'm glad you recognised it. I can't wait until I wear it to a convention. I hope people recognise me then ;A;

Shopping List



Recovering from Expo (Posted 27th May 2012)

Wow ;w; what an excellent time. The weather was /so/ hot, so I basically melted at one pointed. Thank goodness I could change into something cooler...
Three people recognised me, so that was a very nice surprise! They all got photos, and I'm uh unsure what they'll do with them. Hopefully I'll get hold of them, they were quite nice [I hope]

Wig was a bit naughty due to the wind, but that couldn't be helped.
My friend got some photos for me so I'll edit the brightness etc. of them and upload them to here.

Hat update! (Posted 16th April 2012)

After spraying the blue star button [previous entry] with a white base coat of paint, I went over it with metallic gold paint.
I hope you'll agree it looks fairly snazzy!

Star! (Posted 15th April 2012)

I managed to /FINALLY/ locate a button in the shape of a star, proper five-pointed and raised in the middle.
Of course, it's currently blue and transparent, so...
I need to spray paint it white, and then I'm going to go over the white base coat when its dried with gold paint. I got some from Humbrol, which is used for painting Airfix kits. I will update when it's coloured correctly.

Gloves + Hat (Posted 24th March 2012)

Today I ironed the transfer prints of stars onto my gloves. I'm very glad they didn't melt ene
I also got hold of another hat. It has a star on it, but it's a lot bigger than the LHC star, so I need to find a way to replace that.

White gloves! (Posted 15th March 2012)

I got some. I think they might be a burlesque thing though so uh.
That was awkward.
I haven't gotten any stars onto them yet. I'm going to locate my transfer paper in this rather messy house and set about getting some stars onto them pronto!
Oh God I hope they withstand ironing.
Damn. This'll be bad if they don't...

Jacket + Trousers Arrived! (Posted 15th March 2012)

They just fit, gosh! The sizes on that website were really strange.
I'm so glad they are the right size, though.
They said they'd arrive at the beginning of April, and it's halfway through March, so I'm pretty chuffed about that.

Jacket + Trousers (Posted 11th January 2012)

My friend found me an absolutely perfect jacket and trouser set, so I'm going to order that when I have enough money. It's gonna take ages to arrive, too, so I need to order that very sharpish.
