Costume Information

Cost : £40

I've loved this series since I was a child and considering that i'm not okay with showing my tummy I thought "why not cosplay as Meroko?!?"

I'm planning to lose my "uni flab" (too much chocolate DX) so hopefully it will look more accurate when i'm done!

So far i've made the wrist cuffs, the bra is almost done and the belt is also almost done.

At the moment I dislike the fabric I used so unless I change my mind, i'm going to re-do it in pvc XD (Its okay though as i'll be able to draw round the bits i've done so far and re-sew on the white ruffles!

Just the hat, skirt and boots to do :3

Didn't get it finished for hyper japan unfortunately! The boot covers were terribly made and I didn't have enough time to style the wig properly :{ Ahwell! I'll try and fix this all and wear it again~ :3

I love it so much also! I love all of Arina Tanemura's work in fact. The Gentlemen's Alliance Cross is probably one of my favourites <3

I know I'm not a stick insect like some people who cosplay but I don't care XD Its all fun :3

Dat Hat (Posted 22nd February 2012)

The hat is slowly getting there~~

Made from a ring cardboard base and then a cereal box wrapped around and taped to the base. The cereal box has slits in the top and folded out slightly to give a curved less cylinder shape. The gaps inbetween are taped over to cover them up. Then another bit of cardboard is used (oval-ish shape) on the top and taped.

I shall be covering it~~

Da skirt belt~~ (Posted 22nd January 2012)

Made the skirt~~ its just a simple circle skirt with a zip on the back~

The belt is a long bit of fabric with ruffles (pinned down) on each on the sides of the long fabric with a bracelet joining in the middle front.

This is without the petticoat. With it, it will be more poofy and cool looking :3

Bra and wrist cuff (Posted 20th January 2012)

The bra and wrist cuffs are pretty much done~~

The bra was made by simply cuting out cicles for the booby bits sewing together adding straps and buttoned at the back (with ruffles surrounding the outsides of the bra). Its a miracle the thing stayed up!

The writ cuffs are also buttoned~
