|Why I made this costume: I had already did a cosplay of Shimei but I was planning on making the school uniform right after that for sometime. I got busy and it got pushed way back. For a while I kind of had forgot about doing it until I came across this perfect yellow vest that reminded me of the costume! It was only 2.00 a total steal. Of course Shimei is my favorite character from Ikki Tousen I think I fit her the best personality wise and I relate to with her in a lot of ways. If only there was more Ikki Tousen for me to watch Y__Y.|
About this costume: There are a lot of things in this costume that I was able to re-use. Which was nice because it not only saves me on time but money as well a super plus. The wig,eye patch,shoes, hand-cuffs, and bow were re-used from my Shimei maid cosplay. The vest was altered and the white button-up shirt I already had. The gloves I had for the maid costume with I made short and added the black bands with the sliver pieces that I took off an old pair of shoes I was getting rite of. I bought the red fabric for the skirt. The I planned the pattern in photo-shop before I started to paint. I taped everything off and painted as neatly as I could. The white lines were the hardest because they were so thin the paint would bleed. So I went back to do a lot of touching up to look as neatly as possible. I bought a white pair of knee high socks and dyed them added on the white bands on the bottom.
