Costume Information

Cost : £36

I made this costume back around 2006 for a Glasgow Anime cosplay meet-up. I don't have any good photos of it so I think I only mention it briefly on my CosplayLab and Cosplay.com account! I often forget I even have it sitting in the cupboard haha.

Anyway I was speaking to SachikoYumi about her NANA group that she's doing at KitaCon and she told me that her Nobu can't make it to Kita anymore. I offered to step in since it finally gives me a reason to fix up this costume and get some photos of it!

Trousers (Posted 18th March 2012)

Fished these out finally. I bought them years ago when I didn't know where to buy plaid fabric and I didn't know how to make trousers very well. One of the zippers has already been ripped off of them but I figured I'd put up a progres pic of what they looked like before editing.

Vivienne Westwood Ring (Posted 9th February 2012)

I can't find any cheap knock-offs of this (unlike the proper PRO VW Armor Ring that I found for £3.99!) so I'll probably buy a similar shaped toy ring and then paint it.

Uploading this as a reference image because I think this is what Ai Yazawa based the art off of.
