|I chose this costume as it was my first cosplay, and I felt it'd be best to do something easy. I went for Rika since I'd prefer to do characters that looked similar to me.|
I don't think any major part of the costume was made from scratch. I did modify a skirt shorter (thought knee-length was too long) and made some little bows for the socks, however.
I ended up buying a wig in the wrong colour and had to get another one!
To be honest, the costume wasn't very different from a school uniform, which I wear every day.
