|Time Taken :||The day before the convention 8D|
|Ranmao and Joker from Kuroshitsuji worn at May Expo 2010!|
This was actually the first costume that I'd made totally from scratch! (and second ever cosplay) Dress, Bolero, underbust corset, ankle bangles, wig and weapons all made by me (with a little help on the weapons from Yukioto)!
I was naughty and purposely didn't put Ranmao's butterfly pattern on her dress. I really hated that part of the design (as well as my super-shiny fabric) and decided not to ruin the effort I'd put into the dress with something I wouldn't be happy with! The corset is boned (though I should have made it slightly longer)and the wig is a mixture of the base wig, extensions and painted fimo to hold the shapes.
We rewore this to the Barbican 'Japanese Fashion' event after being invited to showcase the costume- I found much better shoes and Joker managed to finish his waistcoat and other details.
