Costume Information

Cost : £50
Time Taken : 2 months 1 week

As a last minute costume to fill a gap at Amecon I decided to do the combat photographer from the anime Area 88. Being a relatively straight forward costume I felt I could complete it fairly simply and also gain more experience with clothing modification. I also quite like the characters personality and mannerism which is also a plus :)

So far I have acquired the T shirt and shortened the jeans by an inch.
I also have got a denim dress which plans are to remove the sleeves and shorten by it by 4 inches, I also have to use the sleeves to make the pockets on the tunic. Props are simple as I can use my camera and possibly tripod for the apropriate roles.

Thanks! Out of all my cosplays the tunic has probably taken the most work to customise. Im happy with its progress
