Description
Just wanted a kind of random cosplay somewhere!
Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side is a popular Japanese dating sim. aimed at girls (anyone seen "Ukidoki Memorial" on Ouran High School? XD) and 2nd Kiss (the second game in the series for girls) was soo cute~ XD I really like the look of the girls' uniform, though I'm not sure if I should go for the winter wear or the summer wear.

==Update 22/5/08==
When I played 2nd Season (DS version of 2nd Kiss) when it first came out, I pretty much fell in love with the game again XD and so I was more determined to try and make the uniform.

This is the first time I make my own costume (all my other costumes are either bought or made by my brother) so I'm slowly learning how to sew. X3

So far, I've made the capelet and I'm 1/4 of the way from finishing the dress. I've ordered custom patches to be made of the school emblem so that I can sew onto the capelet (which were kinda pricey but I couldn't find a place that did custom patches without having to order it in large amounts...)

==Update 10/9/08==
My first handmade costume :3 ...though it's not very good XD
It was comfortable to wear and I really like the capelet but the dress isn't really made that well so I'd like to remake it someday. I wasn't recognized at all at AmeCon XD though I wasn't expecting to be recognized since this series isn't that well known outside of Japan. I still enjoyed wearing it though :3

Woah, I added one too many 0 's! XD It was 36,000 yen which is about 150 pounds using a currency converter (I can't calculate yen into pound anymore XD ). 1,500 pounds for a school uniform would be a bit of a rip-off XD
