6th August 2012: done Finally finished. Just waiting for paint to dry then I can iron it in.
This is the only costume this year I am actually happy with. It's not perfect, but it's fine for now. My sister decided she wanted to cosplay as Shinpachi to the ball with me, so were gona try and get some photos done before hand before all the light goes.
18th June 2012: last bits I finally got my wig the other week. Appaerently i didn't collect it from the sorting ofice in time, so it went back to the seller who sent it back out to me.The coat and under garments are done. Now all that is left is my gloves, boots and to paint the design on to the coat. I was worried that the green top might've looked too dark, but it seems to be ok while wearing it.
now i just have to learn how to pose to i dont always look so awkward.
2nd April 2012: So far so good. I've made the under green top. I bought the shirt from Primark, and I started to make the coat.
I couldn't find a fabric with the Koi and flower design on it. so I just lined the coat black and I'm gonna either stencil or use t-shirt printing paper to put the design on.. but before that I still need to attach the collar, widen the arm holes and add the red Bias.
